With SOLIDWORKS Routing, you’ll enjoy greater design efficiency, better designs, improved bill of materials (BOM) accuracy, faster time-to-market, and lower costs. You will be able to perform routed system design tasks easily and automatically and speed up the process of routing tubes, pipes, electrical cable, harnesses and electrical conduit.
SOLIDWORKS Motion enables engineers to size motors or actuators, determine power consumption, layout linkages, develop cams, understand gear drives, size springs or dampers, and determine how contacting parts behave.
TolAnalyst™ is a tolerance analysis tool used to study the effects tolerances and assembly methods have on dimensional stack-ups between two features of an assembly. The result of each study is a minimum and maximum tolerance stack, a minimum and maximum root sum squared (RSS) tolerance stack and a list of contributing features and tolerances.
CircuitWorks is designed to bridge the gap between SOLIDWORKS and Electrical Computer-Aided Design (ECAD) systems by providing an intuitive tool that allows users to import and export Printed Circuit Board (PCB) designs between SOLIDWORKS and ECAD systems.
ScanTo3D reduces the time required to build complex 3D models of real-world items, such as sculpted objects, and anatomical items. 3D data such as point clouds and mesh (which is attained from laser scanners and other devices) can be imported, parsed, manipulated, modified, and ultimately turned into 3D solids and surfaces.
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. Therefore, it is necessary to accurately determine or estimate the size and shape of the surfaces in their flattened state in order to be able to cut the material from the flat sheet.
Conduct life cycle assessment (LCA) on parts or assemblies directly within the design window. Search for comparable materials and see in real time how they affect environmental impact. Create detailed reports that explain a design’s sustainability.
