From structural analysis and computational fluid dynamics to injection moulding simulation and advanced, cloud-enabled capabilities powered by Abaqus, SOLIDWORKS® and 3DEXPERIENCE® Works Simulation provide integrated analysis tools for every designer, engineer, and analyst. Predict the impact of stress, heat, vibration, and much more by virtually testing cad models.


Structural Simulation solutions available to SOLIDWORKS users provide a comprehensive set of structural analysis capabilities to guide design decisions and improve product performance and quality.

  • CAD-embedded structural analysis solutions using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) to predict real-life performance.
  • Easy to use, comprehensive capabilities solve everything from a simple linear analysis of single components to complete simulations of full assemblies with contact and non-linearities.
  • Cloud-enabled solutions deliver access to powerful, proven, and scalable Abaqus technology from SIMULIA.
  • Understand product performance early in the design process to innovate more and avoid rework.

Fluid Dynamics

Perform fluid flow and heat transfer simulation to improve quality and avoid manufacturing issues.

  • Explore fluid flow and thermal performance of products to accelerate product innovation
  • A wide range of capabilities provides tools to easily predict steady-state and long transient flow and thermal behaviour of products
  • Fully integrated multidisciplinary environment to quickly and easily conduct CFD analyses.
  • Collaborate with project stakeholders around fluid flow simulation results for informed decisions

Plastics Injection
Moulding Simulation

Share real-time product development information with sales and marketing teams to create the perfect plans, high-quality graphical assets, and interactive 3D content — even before the product is built.

  • See what your products look like in the real world with photorealistic product shots
  • Create immersive VR content for enhanced internal reviews and viral consumer experiences.
  • Collaborate on creating the perfect go-to marketing content before any product has been manufactured
  • Stay connected to a “single source of truth” throughout the product development lifecycle
