Subject your designs to real world conditions to raise product quality while reducing prototyping and physical testing costs.

Why Choose SOLIDWORKS Simulation?

SOLIDWORKS® Simulation is an easy-to-use portfolio of structural analysis tools that use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models. The portfolio provides linear, non-linear static and dynamic analysis capabilities.

Which SOLIDWORKS Simulation package is right for you?

Simulation Standard

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard is an intuitive virtual testing environment for static linear, time-based motion, and high-cycle fatigue simulation. It delivers a concurrent engineering approach, helping you know if your product will perform properly and how long it will last—during the design phase.

Simulation Professional

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional enables you to optimize your design, determine product mechanical resistance, product durability, topology, natural frequencies, and test heat transfer and buckling instabilities. It can also perform sequential multi-physics simulations.

Simulation Premium

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium lets you efficiently evaluate your designs for a nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials. SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium includes three advanced studies: Non-Linear Static, Non-Linear Dynamic, and Linear Dynamics.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

Simulate the fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your designs.
