Agriculture with Technology
Adapting to meet the change
To meet the ever-increasing demand for produce, developing more efficient and productive agricultural machinery is really important. SOLIDWORKS has specialist tools to help develop the next generation of agriculture machinery, including simulating the machineries working environment, to ensure it can cope with the demands asked of it. Whether it be motion, heat transfer, frequency, fatigue or linear buckling, SOLIDWORKS can help to innovate the next agricultural production solutions.
Robust Design
The challenges that agricultural machinery endure requires them to be robust, make sure they're ready by testing them virtually first with SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

Need to update your design based on the results? Making model changes with SOLIDWORKS is simple and all related drawings will be updated at the same time.
Manage Complexity
With an increasing population, demand for food is increasing. With evolving technology and the need for efficiency often leading to larger machinery, SOLIDWORKS helps to ensure components can function together.

As a project develops it can become harder to manage your files and revisions, keep onto of your CAD data with SOLIDWORKS PDM.
Data Efficiency
SOLIDWORKS offers far more than just 3D modelling design, any data you create can be used in a number of ways including: creating drawings, technical communications, driving CAM programs, generating animations, virtual testing, 3D printing and more.

SOLIDWORKS Tools and Solutions use for Agriculture
SOLIDWORKS Professional
Complete the whole process with one package where you can model, visualise and evaluate your designs. SOLIDWORKS Professional expands on SOLIDWORKS Standard by adding data management, a huge library of easily accessible fasteners, rendering functionality and productivity tools such as the task scheduler.
SOLIDWORKS Simulation
Reduce reliance on prototypes and save time and money with SOLIDWORKS Simulation. Virtually testing your designs will allow you to validate loads and motion before anything physical has been created. Visual results clearly display any weak areas that could cause issues.
SOLIDWORKS Composer
Produce high quality illustrations and interactive animations to be used for your technical communications, straight from your CAD data. Any documentation you create remains linked to your CAD data so it's simple to update, you can even begin creating your technical documents before the design is finalized.
Advanced Part Modeling
Material handling in agriculture is vital to help increase efficiency and reliability, by using the flexible advanced part modelling tools you can create complex and versatile products for seeding, housing, fertilising, storing and more.
Sheet Metal
Sheet metal is commonly used for agricultural products, with the specialist sheet metal tools that SOLIDWORKS has to offer funnels, ducting, vessels and covers are produced quickly and the net dynamically updates as the piece develops. Flat patterns of any sheet metal piece can be exported to a DXF with a couple of clicks.
Weldments
Agricultural designs use beam structures, whether they're traditional I-beams, box sections or completely custom profiles. Weldments helps you to quickly create framework in less time with its easy application of corner treatments, trims, welds and the automatic creation of detailed cut lists.
SOLIDWORKS Users in your Industry
Customer Experience - LettUs Grow
LettUs Grow uses aeroponic technology to grow their crops, growing plants in an air or mist environment without the use of soil or an aggregate medium. LettUs Grow is a unique workplace in which engineers work closely with biologists, farmers and plant physiologists to achieve successful products that can perform well in real-life. LettUs Grow uses SOLIDWORKS Standard, Electrical, PCB and Visualize.

"By having these add-on products we were able to model the farm in its entirety as a large, electro-mechanical assembly, using the software integration system that SOLIDWORKS offers, we could closely monitor and control the conditions the plants are exposed to. This has enhanced academic research into how environmental factors can be adapted to match a plant’s growth cycle, optimising farm productivity. The ability to generate photo-realistic renders in SOLIDWORKS Visualize also helped us to accelerate sales and bring our seemingly futuristic concept into reality."
