Simulation Packages

SOLIDWORKS Simulation is a world-leading structural analysis solution that is fully integrated into SOLIWORKS. Used by designers and analysts alike, enabling companies to get their products to market faster, with less cost, and without sacrificing quality or performance.

In the Simulation portfolio you will find immensely powerful analysis solutions including Finite Element Analysis (FEA). A method to predict a product’s real-world physical behavior by virtually testing CAD models. The portfolio also delivers linear, non-linear static and dynamic analysis solutions.

The simulation suite is divided into three levels: Simulation Standard, Simulation Professional, and Simulation Premium. Each level adds easy-to-use capabilities to solve ever more challenging problems.

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation is a general-purpose fluid flow and heat transfer simulation tool integrated with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD. 

Capable of simulating both low-speed and supersonic flows, this powerful 3D design simulation tool enables true concurrent engineering. Bringing the critical impact of fluid flow analysis and heat transfer into the hands of every designer. 

Additionally to SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation, designers can simulate the effects of fans and rotating components on the fluid flow as well as component heating and cooling.


Rapidly evaluate changes to product performance across multiple variables.


Reduce time-to-market by optimising design solutions and reducing physical prototypes.


Enhance your cost and quality control by reducing rework.


Deliver more accurate proposals.

Flow Simulation


Avoid Hidden Costs: Optimise part wall thickness, gate locations, runner system size, and layout to ensure your mold works right the first time.


Reduce Manufacturing Defects and Scrap: Analyse design iterations at the earliest stages of product development—when the cost of change is least and the impact on manufacturability is greatest. 


Reduce Time-to-Market Delays: Predict and avoid potential manufacturing defects before any mold tooling is cut, virtually eliminating the need for mold rework. 


Avoid Inefficient “Islands of Automation”: Automated report generation tools facilitate the sharing and interpretation of simulation results, allowing increased collaboration among development teams at different sites.


Predict and avoid manufacturing defects in plastic part and injection mold designs. Eliminate costly rework, improve part quality, and decrease time to market.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics offers Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) simulation tools that predict how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process—the manufacturing method used to produce more than 80% of all plastics products. 

By predicting the flow, you’ll be able to predict manufacturing-related defects. And because of this, users can change mold geometry, processing conditions, or the plastic material used to minimise potential defects – saving energy, natural resources, time, and money.

SOLIDWORKS PDM is a mainstream data management system that stores and organises engineering CAD data and other documents in a central vault that has a relational database to manage all the information about the files and references, users and group permissions, electronic workflow processes and more.

PDM is built into Windows Explorer so users are able work in a familiar environment but with much more information and control.

It uses an organised local cache, where files are automatically retrieved from the central file server (Archive Server) and placed in the user’s local cache on their hard drive. This vastly increases performance over opening and saving files on network shared folders.

If a file needs to be edited, the user will check out the file, which gives them rights access to it. After editing is complete, the file is copied back to the Archive Server via the check-in process. The check-in process automatically creates a new version of the file.


Saves time searching with a secure centralised location for all design documents and utilisation of configurable search cards which make it easy to enter search criteria


Controls access to data so the right users have access at the right time based on where a file is in the approval process


Effective version control helps avoid rework and scrap caused by working from the outdated versions of 3D models and drawings


Enables remote design locations to receive real-time updates on design changes coupled with automatic notifications


Avoids having to spend time looking for or recreating documents that have been, moved, renamed, misplaced, or mistakenly deleted by unauthorised users




The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a cloud-based environment that connects your product development process from design through manufacturing and delivery.
