SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium

  • You can efficiently evaluate your designs for nonlinear and dynamic response, dynamic loading, and composite materials with the powerful tools of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium.

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium adds to the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional to provide valuable insights to improve product reliability in the most cost effective manner, no matter the material or use environment.

    “SOLIDWORKS is a key aspect of our research and development program.”

    – Tony Stewart – Research and Development Engineer, Norris Industries

  • SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium enables engineers to solve problems without simplification to determine complex real-world behaviors.

    • Drop test analysis: drop test analysis can be a regular part of your design process – reducing the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework or delays, and saving time and development costs
    • Thermal structural analysis: determine thermal effects on a given design – or the impact of design changes on component temperatures
    • Plastic and rubber part analysis: Quickly and efficiently carry out stress analysis of plastic components and rubber parts while you design, to optimize material selection and part design
    • Vibration analysis: identify trouble spots that could cause problems (such as resonance, fatigue, and assembly techniques) and avoid costly rework and delays during the prototype phase
    • Frequency analysis: investigate the natural frequencies of a design – with and without loads and boundary conditions
    • Linear stress analysis: quickly and efficiently validate quality, performance, and safety – all while creating the design
    • Structural analysis: carry out structural simulation on parts and assemblies with finite element analysis (FEA) while you work to improve and validate performance


    Raise the quality of your products and reduce costs for live prototypes, with SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium.


    What’s New in SOLIDWORKS 2018

    SOLIDWORKS 2018 provides four new solutions to help you simplify interactions between product development teams and ultimately improve your business. Accelerate product innovation and grow your business with these new processes:


    Complete solution to bring your ideas to market

    For years, companies have survived despite having a separation between their design and manufacturing departments, both by organisation, and by the tools they use. SOLIDWORKS Design-to-Manufacturing Process Solution provides everything you need to bring your ideas to market. Design to final assembly work can now happen concurrently in one seamlessly integrated and managed system.

    The right data, at the right time, for the right people

    Electronic data within organisation needs to be easy to access regardless of the format – from documents and spreadsheets to metadata, processes data, and data from enterprise resource planning. SOLIDWORKS Distributed Data Management (DDM) Process Solution can organise all this data so it is easy to access across many disciplines and departments. It also makes it easy to capture non-electronic data and complex electronic data such as 3D shapes.

    Analysis tools for every step of design

    Great designs are the result of inspiration, perspiration, and hours of hard work. SOLIDWORKS Designer to Analyst Process Solution helps you speed up the complete design cycle. Your engineering and design teams can work together concurrently evolving product designs while validating any changes, and reusing previous analysis information.

    Connect your smart devices to your customers

    Every day products are becoming more complex. As web and app functionalities are added to everything from cars to sunglasses, many companies are looking for intelligent tools that work together so they can design and build the “smart” products today’s markets demand. Recognising this, one of the easiest and fastest ways to achieve a more efficient process when designing connected devices is to use one single, unified environment.


    The arrival of smart manufacturing

    Smart Manufacturing is a term used to describe a connected and seamless flow of intellectual property to all teams involved, from design to manufacturing. The creation of IP involves knowledge-capture early in the design process with intelligence from varied skill sets, such as design, costing, quality, manufacturing, marketing, supply chain.

    In Smart Manufacturing, information is available when it’s needed, where it’s needed, and in the form in which it is most useful. Manufacturing intelligence is built up front to actively integrate the three major components in the development process: design, manufacturing and innovation.

    “Smart Manufacturing is more than ‘integrated’ manufacturing. It also means taking advantage of the rich content contained in the 3D CAD model.”
