Four Key Capabilities and Four Distinct Advantages of SOLIDWORKS Professional

Currently, nearly 200,000 companies and more than two million users have made SOLIDWORKS the world’s leading computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering application. For more than two decades and through 25 major releases, SOLIDWORKS has provided designers and engineers with a continually expanding range of features, functions and capabilities that enable them to bring their inspirations to life.

SOLIDWORKS Professional takes that capacity even further, with a range of new capabilities that streamline and optimize the innovation process, making it faster, easier, and more efficient—for individual users, for teams, and for the entire enterprise.

PRODUCT DATA MANAGEMENT (PDM) — SOLIDWORKS PDM Standard securely stores data within a single central repository. Comprehensive version control means that you can always revisit earlier versions or create branched iterations for parallel projects.

SHARING — SOLIDWORKS Professional is created with collaboration foremost in mind. Your project’s data is continually updated whenever changes are made, meaning that collaborators are always working on the most up-to-date version, no matter where they are in the development chain. Since all team members work within the shared data environment, different functions can work concurrently on their project segments without waiting for other developments to be completed, which can dramatically speed development.

eDrawings — eDrawings expands SOLIDWORKS Professional’s collaborative capabilities still further by letting you easily package designs in 2D and 3D formats for sharing, emailing, and revision, even if recipients aren’t using SOLIDWORKS. Support for multiple popular formats helps ensure that eDrawings can be viewed and used virtually anywhere, including on modern smartphones and tablets.

VISUALIZE — SOLIDWORKS Visualize brings designs to vivid life as photorealistic images, animations, and 3D functional renderings, providing a rich experiential view of designs as they’d look in the “real world.” Besides helping teams clearly evaluate and modify designs, Visualize supports advance creation of marketing materials, technical documentation, demonstration videos and other media, so you can “go to market” more quickly.

SOLIDWORKS Professional’s advanced capabilities help companies like yours take projects from conception to completion with the highest quality, the greatest efficiency, and in the shortest possible timeframe. That can create a great competitive advantage and make a big difference to your bottom line.
