Predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection mold designs, eliminating costly rework, improving part quality, and decreasing time to market.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Plastics?

SOLIDWORKS® Plastics delivers easy-to-use simulation for analyzing plastic parts and injection molds. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects so you can quickly evaluate part manufacturability while you design.


Which SOLIDWORKS Plastics package is right for you?

Plastics Standard

Ensure parts are manufactureable during the design process.  Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is fully embedded within SOLIDWORKS CAD so you can analyze and modify part designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit and function.

Plastics Professional

Builds upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard to analyze mold designs.  With easy-to-use tools you can quickly analyze single-and multi-cavity and family mold layouts including sprues, runners and gates to estimate cycle time and to optimize feed system design.

Plastics Premium

Includes SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional with advanced simulation functionality to analyze mold cooling line layouts and part warpage.  Optimizing cooling line minimizes cycle times and decreases manufacturing costs.
