Want all the SOLIDWORKS capabilities rolled into one tool? SOLIDWORKS Premium is the complete 3D design software for advanced product design engineering teams. SOLIDWORKS Premium builds on the Standard and Professional packages with expansive design simulation capabilities, sophisticated electrical routing, piping and harnessing, support for 3D scanning and extended SOLIDWORKS toolsets.




SOLIDWORKS Premium provides superior simulation and design validation. Some of the advanced features include: motion analysis, structural part/assembly analysis, environmental impact analysis (SOLIDWORKS Sustainability), pipe/tube routing, duct routing, electrical wire/harness routing and advances surface flattening.

The question “can we make this happen?” will never be asked again with SOLIDWORKS Premium. Imagination is the only limitation. Take the guesswork out of designs and start creating!

SOLIDWORKS Premium includes the SOLIDWORKS Professional features plus:

Time Based Motion Analysis

Easily evaluate how your product will perform and move throughout its operational cycle with motion analysis. Visualize your product moving as it would in the real world and measure the forces and loads on your design.

Linear Stress Analysis

Linear stress analysis enables designers and engineers to quickly and efficiently validate quality, performance, and safety—all while creating their design. Reduce the need for costly prototypes, eliminating rework, and save time and development costs.

Advanced Surface Flattening

Often products like leather goods, sports equipment, footwear, and products made from composite materials, like carbon fiber and fiberglass, have complex shapes, but are manufactured from materials that start out as flat stock, such as cow hides, nylon, cloth, and flat composite sheet. With SOLIDWORKS Premium you can accurately determine or estimate the size and shape of surfaces in their flattened state in order to be able to cut the material from the flat sheet.

Piping and Tubing Design

Accelerate the development process and save time by designing piping and tubing in 3D during system design with SOLIDWORKS. By integrating piping and tubing during the design process, designers can help ensure efficient assembly, operation, and serviceability, avoiding rework, delays, and extra cost.

Electrical Cable Harness and Conduit Design

Quickly design and route electrical wiring, harnessing, cabling, and conduit assemblies of products in 3D using the SOLIDWORKS Premium package. Integrating these systems during product design rather than adding them later accelerates your development process, saves time and rework costs, and helps to ensure efficient product assembly and serviceability.

Routing of Rectangular and Other Sections

SOLIDWORKS Premium users can route rectangular and round sections to meet their design needs. Equipment designers, product designers, machine designers, facility designers and others all need rectangular section routing to complete their designs that include ducting, cable trays, conveyors, material handling chutes, and many other systems.
