System Requirements for SolidWorks

SOLIDWORKS® delivers robust 3D design capabilities, performance, and ease-of-use. Not only can you create fully detailed parts, assemblies, and production-level drawings, but you can access all the tools required to generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural welded assemblies.

SOLIDWORKS also includes DriveWorksXpress to automate designs, and other wizards to perform stress analysis, and determine the environmental impact of components.


SOLIDWORKS Premium is a comprehensive 3D design solution that adds powerful simulation and design validation to the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional, as well as ECAD/MCAD collaboration, reverse engineering, and advanced wire and pipe routing functionality.

SOLIDWORKS Professional

SOLIDWORKS Professional builds on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Standard to increase design productivity, with file management tools, advanced photorealistic rendering, automated cost estimation, eDrawings® Professional collaboration capabilities, automated design and drawing checking, and a sophisticated components and parts library.


Get up to speed quickly with SOLIDWORKS Standard and unlock the benefits of this powerful 3D design solution for rapid creation of parts, assemblies, and 2D drawings. Application-specific tools for sheet metal, weldments, surfacing, and mold tool and die make it easy to deliver best-in-class designs.

Dassault Systemes has chosen to include the Xpress version of DriveWorks (DriveWorksXpress) inside all licenses  of SOLIDWORKS Premium, Professional and Standard. This is a great measure of market demand for Design Automation and for proven DriveWorks technology.

DriveWorks Solo and DriveWorks Pro are SOLIDWORKS Certified Gold Products.
