SOLIDWORKS Premium further expands on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional to deliver the premier 3D design system in the SOLIDWORKS family. A complete 3D MCAD product, providing designers with all the mechanical design, verification, motion simulation, data management and communication tools that they need in one package.

Rich simulation capabilities let users test product performance against real life motion and forces. Tolerance stack-up analysis ensures manufacturability and helps resolve complex assembly issues early in the design process.

Extended toolsets help layout and document electrical wiring, piping, and tubing, and let you quickly incorporate PC board data into the 3D model.

SOLIDWORKS Premium can also work with 3D scanned data.
