SOLIDWORKS Simulation Packages
SOLIDWORKS 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.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional enables you to optimise 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.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium
SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium lets you efficiently evaluate your designs for 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.
