If you have been spending too much time and money re-designing your products and making costly prototypes to test your designs, it might be time you consider simulating your product performance earlier.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation is an affordable 3D design simulation solution with powerful engineering capabilities that help you predict your product performance before you even consider prototyping. 

How to predict product performance before prototyp

With SOLIDWORKS Simulation you can analise your designs for the top 5 mechanical failure modes:

And you can also make your engineering work easier by using assembly productivity tools, such as Optimisation; Connectors and 2D Simplifications to get better results with faster and easier set ups.

Most of our customers share the same concerns when they first start looking at simulations tools. Some think they won’t use as frequently, while others are just interested in testing for a particular aspect, such as strength. However, there are many other tools available that can be picked up and used at any given time in the design process, as they are fully integrated within SOLIDWORKS. We cannot emphasize enough how SOLIDWORKS Simulation can help you paint the complete picture and lets you test your assemblies, no matter how complex or the nature of the test in question (i.e. durability, pressure, vibration issues).

Find out here how SOLIDWORKS Simulation helps companies avoid design and performance errors earlier on in the product development process.
