SolidWorks offers a suite of simulation packages that enable you to set up virtual real-world environments so you can test your product designs before manufacture. Test against a broad range of parameters throughout the design process—like durability, static and dynamic response, motion of assembly, heat transfer, and fluid dynamics—to evaluate product performance and make decisions to improve quality and safety. Simulation lowers cost and speeds time to market by reducing the number of physical prototypes you need before going into production. SolidWorks Simulation helps designers and engineers to innovate, testing and developing new concepts with greater insights.

SolidWorks Simulation Premium software provides a full range of simulation capabilities to ensure product robustness and bolsters the depth of Simulation Professional with additional features, including tools for simulating nonlinear and dynamic response and dynamic loading.

SolidWorks Simulation Professional goes beyond core simulation and expands the virtual test environment to product durability and natural frequencies, heat transfer and buckling, and pressure analysis and complex loading.

Included with the SolidWorks Premium 3D CAD design package, SolidWorks Simulation provides core simulation tools to test for strength and safety, analyze assembly kinematics, and simulate product performance to help you make the decisions that improve quality.

SolidWorks Flow Simulation takes the complexity out of computational fluid dynamics to quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces critical to your design.

SolidWorks SimulationXpress is a first-pass basic stress analysis tool that comes with every SolidWorks 3D CAD software package.

SolidWorks FloXpress is a first-pass basic fluid flow analysis tool that calculates how water or air flows through part or assembly models and comes with every SolidWorks 3D CAD software package.
