SolidWorks Simulation Professional

Fully integrated with SolidWorks CAD software, SolidWorks Simulation Professional provides powerful tools that expand the capabilities of SolidWorks Simulation, so you can investigate more tests and operating environments on both parts and assemblies.

  • Study and optimize assemblies of all sizes
  • Understand the effects of temperature changes on parts and assemblies
  • Simulate vibration or buckling in your designs
  • Optimize critical dimensions and conceptual design features
  • Simulate drop tests using your parts or assemblies
  • Study the effects of cyclic loading and fatigue
  • Predict Buckling or Collapse with SolidWorks Simulation
  • Create motion simulations based on events and actions

* Must have SolidWorks to use this product.

Subscription Service: 1 year

Support your design team with tools and resources to help them work faster and smarter. As a SolidWorks® Subscription Service Program member, you receive automatic upgrades to the latest versions of your licensed SolidWorks software for design, simulation, technical communication, or data management; live technical support from Computer Aided Technology, your local authorized Value-Added Reseller (VAR); and software enhancements designed for Subscription Service members.

Operating System

Supported Systems:
  • Windows 10, 64-Bit
  • Windows 8.1, 64-Bit
  • Windows 8.0, 64-Bit
  • Windows 7 SP1, 64-Bit
  • Windows 7 SP1, 32-Bit
Not Supported Systems:
  • Vista Business x64 SP2
  • XP x64
  • 32 bit Windows

RAM

64 bit: 8 GB, or more – recommended for large assembly work and Simulation.

Video Card

• A SolidWorks certified OpenGL workstation card with 2GB of RAM – recommended.
• A SolidWorks certified OpenGL workstation card with 1GB of RAM – minimum requirement.
• Visit www.solidworks.com/sw/videocardtesting.html for a list of certified cards and drivers.
• Nvidia Quadro or AMD FirePro.
• Intel integrated graphics and gaming cards (Nvidia GeForce and AMD Radeon) are not certified and not recommended.
• Quadro NVS are not recommended; they are 2D only cards.
• While a certified video card is important SolidWorks is a CPU bound application, you’ll see more performance gains from a faster CPU.

CPU

• Current generation Intel or AMD with SSE2 support processor – as fast as you can afford.
• The Intel i7 Sandy Bridge series are the fastest CPU’s today.
• SolidWorks will take advantage of multi core and multi CPU architectures. Typically these processors give about a 10-15% increase in performance.
• All SolidWorks Simulation products take advantage multi core and multi CPU architectures.

Hard Drive

• 7200 RPM SATA minimum.
• RAID 0 configuration if drive speed is critical.
• SSD (solid state drive) if speed is critical.

Laptops

Very few laptops that have the certified graphics cards for SolidWorks:
• Dell Precision mobile workstations.
• HP EliteBook mobile workstations.
• Lenovo Thinkpad W series.

Microsoft Products:

Internet Explorer: IE 9, 10, 11
Excel and Word: 2010, 2013, 2015

Benchmarks

SolidWorks has created a benchmark to gauge system performance.

Additional Notes:

  1. Though these recommendations are a good starting point for specing out a SolidWorks machine, it is always a good idea to conduct your own hardware/software tests before purchasing any workstation, computer hardware, or video card for SolidWorks.
  2. End Of Life corresponds to the last SOLIDWORKS release where a Microsoft Product is supported. SOLIDWORKS releases after this are not supported and for operating systems, SOLIDWORKS installation is blocked
  3. SOLIDWORKS Product Support Lifecycle defines the End Of Support for SOLIDWORKS versions
  4. Windows Home Editions and Windows To Go are not supported
  5. Microsoft Office ‘Click-To-Run’ feature is not supported
  6. We recommend using the latest Microsoft SP of Windows, Office and Internet Explorer
  7. Apple Macintosh® based machines running Windows using Boot Camp are not supported
