SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software offers three different packages - Standard, Premium, and Professional - each building in functionality and tiered to best suit the needs of your organization. All three packages utilize the intuitive SOLIDWORKS user interface to speed your design process and make you instantly more productive.





Additional solutions include SOLIDWORKS Electrical and Plastics.
Choose any of the below SOLIDWORKS packages to get more information and see which option is the best fit for your business.


The Premium package is a no-compromises solution for the engineer or designer who wants it all. SOLIDWORKS Premium combines the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Professional with powerful Simulation and Design Validation toolsets, as well as advanced wire and pipe routing functionality. Get designs right the first time with this SOLIDWORKS flagship offering.

SOLIDWORKS Professional

SOLIDWORKS Professional builds on the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS Standard to give you maximum design productivity. The Professional package introduces data management, photorealistic rendering, and a sophisticated components and parts library. Efficiency and innovation increase with this solution, which is used by millions of designers around the world.


The standard SOLIDWORKS package is a powerful 3D design solution for the rapid creation of parts, assemblies, prototypes, and 2D drawings with minimal training. Application-specific tools for sheet metal, weldments, surfacing, mold tool and die make it easier than ever to deliver best-in-class designs. Unlock the benefits of 3D with SOLIDWORKS Standard.


SOLIDWORKS Electrical accelerates and simplifies the 2D electrical schematic creation process with an intuitive interface that gives you faster results. Bi-directional integration in real time with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD also makes collaboration between 2D and 3D easier. This results in fewer product delays, more consistent and standardized designs, lower costs, and faster time-to-market for your electrical components.


This free download is a better way to create, edit, and view your DWG files. DraftSight takes just a few minutes to download and runs on Microsoft Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 (general release available), Mac, and Linux (Mac and Linux currently in beta).
