SolidWorks Standard

SolidWorks® Standard delivers robust 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use. Not only can you create fully detailed parts, assemblies, and production-level drawings, but you can access all the tools required to generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural welded assemblies. SolidWorks Standard also includes wizards to automate designs, perform stress analysis, and determine the environmental impact of components. Discover increased design productivity with SolidWorks Standard.


Powerful, easy-to-use design capabilities combine with a range of tools for drawing, design analysis, cost estimation, rendering, animation, and file management to create an intuitive system for developing innovative products, and make you more productive, lower costs, and accelerate your time-to-market.

Part and Assembly Modeling

3D solid modeling, conceptual design, direct model editing, large assembly design, advanced surface design, sheet metal design, weldments, plastic part design, CAD productivity tools, reverse engineering, mold design, piping and tubing design, electrical cable harness and conduit design.

2D Drawings

SolidWorks associativity links a 2D drawing directly with a 3D solid model, so updates to the 3D model can be automatically reflected in the 2D drawing.

Design Reuse and Automation

SolidWorks search, automation, and configuration tools simplify the reuse of existing design data to create new designs. Designers and engineers can find and configure design data and documentation quickly to create new designs

Animation and Visualization

Create life-like photorealistic images and animations with PhotoView 360. Take a virtual tour of your design with Walk-through/Fly-through. Demonstrate your design’s basic operation by applying motion, gravity, and component contact or by manually moving components with CAD Animation.

Collaborate and Share CAD Data

SolidWorks product collaboration tools help members of your design team work closely with other project stakeholders. SolidWorks software also provides ways to protect your designs before sharing them beyond your organization and to manage project data and control design revisions.

Interference Check

SolidWorks tools help you verify your designs will fit, assemble, and operate correctly before you make any parts. Interference checking finds issues early in design.

Simulation Xpress

SolidWorks Simulation Xpress gives you the ability to do basic stress analysis on individual parts. You can quickly determine effects of force and pressure, and generate reports to document results.

Design for Manufacturing

Compare your design to standardized manufacturing rules to assess if your design can be produced with DFMXpress. Automatically compare designs to instantly understand differences. Quickly understand if your parts can be easily removed from mold, cast, or form tooling. Easily assess if your sheet metal parts can be developed from flat stock.
