Save time and development costs, avoid redesigns, and increase productivity by continuously checking your designs against cost targets with automated manufacturing cost estimation tools fully integrated with SOLIDWORKS Professional and SOLIDWORKS Premium software.

SOLIDWORKS automatic cost estimation tools are fully integrated with 3D CAD, enabling designers and engineers to continuously check their designs against cost targets. Easily monitor manufacturing costs as you design, thereby, avoiding costly redesigns and production delays later on. Manufacturers can also utilise SOLIDWORKS cost estimation tools to automate their quoting process.

Key Benefits

  • Automatic Manufacturing Cost Estimation and Quoting
  • Assesses manufacturing cost for sheet metal and machined parts in real time, with automatic updates every time the design is changed
  • Customisable costing inputs, based on company and regional conditions
  • Design optimisation for cost, function, and environmental impact
  • Can change design, remove material, or change material based on the results generated by simulation tools included with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software
