3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional Offer (Quarterly)

This product is for a quarterly subscription to the 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional offer which includes SOLIDWORKS, xDesign, xShape, Visualize, and the Derived Format Converter.

SOLIDWORKS offers are available with subscription terms of 3 months, 12 months, or 36 months.

If you're looking for a lower cost solution focussed on part and assembly modelling, 2D drawing, and basic stress testing, take a look at the SOLIDWORKS Standard offer.

If you need everything in the Professional offering, plus stress and time-based motion analysis, advanced cable routing, and more, check out the SOLIDWORKS Premium offer.

SOLIDWORKS Professional

SOLIDWORKS Professional is everything included with SOLIDWORKS Standard, and much more. As a foundation, SOLIDWORKS Standard gives you part & assembly modelling, 2D drawing, basic stress analysis for individual parts, rapid 2.5-axis CAM programming, design review tools, filetype translators, an XR Exporter, collaboration tools, and more. View our page here for full details on SOLIDWORKS Standard. With SOLIDWORKS Professional, those tools are expanded and you get access to everything below as well.

CAD Libraries
The SOLIDWORKS Toolbox CAD libraries provide easy access to prebuilt 3D CAD models and commonly reused CAD data.

Cost Estimation Tools
Fully integrated with the 3D CAD data, automatic cost estimation tools continuously check designs against target costs. Monitor manufacturing costs as you go in an effort to avoid redesigns and delays. SOLIDWORKS cost estimation tools also help automate the quoting process.

Electrical & Mechanical CAD Tools
Use CircuitWorks to share electrical CAD (ECAD) and mechanical CAD (MCAD) data with collaborators. Quickly resolve electrical and mechanical issues by sharing, comparing, updating, and tracking design data.

Design Validation Tools
Establish design standards and check 2D and 3D projects to ensure uniform designs and documentation.

eDrawings for Quick Markup and Previewing
Use eDrawings to view both 3D models and 2D drawings in an email-ready format. Quickly and accurately view, measure, and mark-up designs.

Tolerance Stack-Up Analysis
Use TolAnalyst to automatically check the effects of tolerances on parts and assemblies to ensure correct fittings and verify tolerancing schemes before production. If a dimensioning or tolerance change is made, tolerance analysis can be rerun.

Photorealistic Renderer
Visualize Standard lets you create visual content of your 3D designs. Using photorealistic imagery early in the design process means that useful feedback can be received and more informed decisions can be made moving forward.

Point Cloud to 3D
With ScanTo3D reverse engineering, you can recreate designs based on ones that already exist. Accelerate product development, reduce risk, and save time by importing, editing, evaluating, and creating solid geometry from point cloud and mesh data.

  • Adjust textures and texture maps for parameters.
  • Combine normal and displacement maps.


xShape is an "xApp" which means it runs in a web browser and is available anywhere, at any time, on any internet-connected device. There's no software to install, configure, or manage, and you will always be working with the latest version.

xShape is a subdivision modelling tool which helps users create smooth, organic, freeform shapes in a workflow that feels a little more like sculpting than CAD modelling. xShape has a simple push-and-pull approach that begins with a primitive shape with surfaces divided in different directions. Manipulate faces, edges, and vertices, and apply symmetry to quickly draft ideas wherever inspiration strikes.


xDesign, another "xApp" helps you model 3D shapes quickly and easily within a single modelling environment. xDesign is integrated with Cloud 3D printing and a network of FabLab machines, and you can use PartSupply to search, access, and pull in 3D components provided by a number of suppliers and manufacturers. Sketch parts by extruding and revolving, and refine with shells, fillets, and chamfers. Convert surfaces to solids, and create assemblies capable of motion.


SOLIDWORKS Visualize (formerly known as Bunkspeed) uses your 3D CAD data to create high quality images, animations, interactive web content, and immersive virtual reality experiences. It is a suite of standalone software tools ideal for quickly and easily creating visual content for designers, engineers, marketing personnel, and other content creators. Think of Visualize as the camera for your CAD data! Cut costs by accelerating the time it takes to get compelling imagery to market.

Within a single Visualize project file, users can rapidly generate multiple design variations with different materials, environments, camera angles, etc. Then with one click, render out all of the configurations at once. The perfect tool to present projects with multiple part or material options.

Visualize includes a full animation suite which makes 360° turntable animations, exploded views, sequence animations, and camera animations a breeze to produce. You can even check how light falls across your model with Sun Study.

Derived Format Converter

The Derived Format Converter for SOLIDWORKS takes the exact geometry in .SLDPRT and .SLDASM files and provides data for use in other 3DEXPERIENCE modelling and simulation apps such as DELMIA and SIMULIA.


The 3DEXPERIENCE platform gives you access to a suite of applications to design, simulate, inform, and collaborate. You can start a project, and then invite collaborators to one unified virtual space. Each user will have their own set of personalised apps, known as a "Role", which gives them tools relevant to their responsibilities in the project.

With 3DEXPERIENCE, everything is stored on the cloud. This means you and your team can access everything from any internet-connected computer, securely, and always on the latest version.

It is from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform that users access a portfolio of web-based and desktop apps, a cloud platform that is host to onboarding programs programs, e-learning modules, and a dedicated community, and the industry marketplace to connect with qualified industrial service provides all around the world.
