Model the World’s Complexity Without Leaving Your CAD Environment

The ability to predict how your designs will perform under real-world operating conditions is the essence of engineering and the purpose of prototyping. Knowing your end product will function as intended is a pretty good idea. Yet, in today’s uber deadline and bottom line-driven global market, manufacturers can no longer afford to take the time or incur the costs of conducting extensive physical testing. Without physical prototypes, what can do you? Crystal ball, fortune telling, the dark arts?

Increasingly, the key to engineering successful products is to leverage simulation technology to quickly and cost-effectively obtain valuable design performance information that can help you design better, more innovative products and deliver them to market faster than the competition. To accurately and effectively simulate the complexity of real-world, physical phenomena, and address their effects on your designs, you need a powerful analysis tool. Whether you need to test nonlinear mechanics, vibration, heat transfer, fluid dynamics, or coupled systems, virtual testing can help you overcome your most difficult engineering challenges.


By simulating the complex physics impacting your designs, you can gather critical information that will help you make important design decisions. The results you glean from simulation testing provide answers to your most challenging engineering questions more efficiently and cost-effectively than through prototyping or hand calculations. Access to critical design performance information shortens time to market, cuts development costs, reduces material usage, validates design choices, improves quality, prevents returns and warranty claims, and increases profitability.


Many leading manufacturers and engineers use SOLIDWORKS Simulation solutions because the software allows them to solve complex analysis problems without complexity. In short, SOLIDWORKS Simulation will help you, and your organization, become more innovative, efficient, and competitive. Download the new white paper, “Superior Product Design Through Powerful In-CAD Simulation,” to learn how you can use the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite to:

  • Solve nonlinear simulation problems
