SolidWorks Professional

SolidWorks® Professional gives you all the power of SolidWorks Standard with additional capabilities that increase productivity, ensure accuracy, and help you communicate your design information more effectively.

SolidWorks Professional includes libraries of standard parts and fasteners, tools to automatically estimate manufacturing costs and help convert imported geometry, and utilities that search designs for errors. Realistically render your designs with PhotoView 360 software and then share them with others using eDrawings® Professional. SolidWorks Professional also gives you integrated file management tools that securely store all project information and track all design changes. Streamline your design process and increase design productivity with SolidWorks Professional.


SolidWorks Standard

SolidWorks Professional includes all the features of the Standard edition.

CAD Libraries

SolidWorks CAD library provides a place for every designer and engineer to easily access, locate, download, save, and share commonly reused CAD data.

Design for Cost

SolidWorks automatic cost estimation tools are fully integrated with 3D CAD, enabling designers and engineers to continuously check their designs against cost targets. Manufacturers can also utilize SolidWorks cost estimation tools to automate their quoting process.

Productivity Tools

Thickness analysis, compare geometry, compare documents, compare features, compare BOMs, feature paint, find and replace annotations, find/modify, geometry analysis, symmetry check, power select, report manager, simplify, compare designs to company standards.

CAD Standards Checking

Use SolidWorks to establish design standards, and then check drawings (or models) against them as you design to ensure consistent and complete drawing outputs.

eDrawings® Professional

SolidWorks 3D CAD tools include the powerful eDrawings collaboration tool which enables you to view both 3D models and 2D drawings in a unique email-ready format.

Advanced Design for Manufacturing

To ensure your product can be manufactured, SolidWorks provides 3D tools to review your design early in the development process.

Advanced CAD Import and Export

SolidWorks provides more than 30 translators to convert incoming CAD data into SolidWorks 3D CAD format or to export SolidWorks data to other CAD products.

Advanced Photorealistic Rendering

SolidWorks PhotoView 360 tools enable you to create photorealistic renderings and animations right from the 3D CAD model.

File Management

SolidWorks Workgroup PDM provides CAD file management for individual users and small workgroups to manage project data, control design revisions, and control access to files.
