SOLIDWORKS Plastics Capabilities Breakdown
Find the Right Package For your Requirements
Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is fully embedded within SOLIDWORKS CAD, so you can analyze and modify part designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional Builds upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard with added support for mold design analysis.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium contains advanced simulation functionality enabling you to analyze mold cooling line layouts and part warpage.
