What is Included in SOLIDWORKS Premium?

Here are a few of the many advanced features you get with an upgrade to SOLIDWORKS Premium:

SOLIDWORKS Premium Simulation software icon

SOLIDWORKS Simulation – Collect accurate predictions on material loading and forecast displacement by using our prized and proven NAFEMS-approved finite element analysis tool, SOLIDWORKS Simulation.

SOLIDWORKS Premium Piping and Routing icon

Piping and Routing – Finish your more intricate designs by connecting components using the agile piping and routing (wiring) tools where you can easily manipulate paths and make changes.

SOLIDWORKS Premium Motion Analysis software icon

Motion Analysis – Observe component behavior and response by creating a Motion Analysis, dodging the expense and the delays of building physical prototypes.

SOLIDWORKS Premium vs Professional

When you upgrade SOLIDWORKS Professional to Premium you gain the most advanced 3D CAD solutions available.  SOLIDWORKS Premium extends on the productivity tools included with SOLIDWORKS Standard and Professional by offering a broad palette to satisfy end-to-end engineering needs.  We reserve our most computationally sophisticated tools for our Premium package.

FEA Linear Static Analysis available with SOLIDWORKS Premium Simulation

Assembly Structural Analysis (FEA)
Compress your development time by testing your 3D models in our easy-to-use and accurate SOLIDWORKS Simulation static analysis add-in, avoiding the need to import/export for analysis. Examine results right in the design platform, so you can immediately make new design decisions or compare materials and re-run the analysis. Concerned about accuracy? This part of the program has been a part of our family for decades and earns the NAFEMS stamp of approval.

Electrical Routing
Our SOLIDWORKS Electrical Routing package is our initial solution to assemblies which require cables, harnesses, conduits, and more. Take control of your routes and borrow from our routing library to make things easier. Need a more complete solution? Learn more about our SOLIDWORKS Electrical Suite.

Motion Analysis
Evaluate the effects of gravity on your design or assess component contact. Observe kinematic interaction, without leaving your desk. Once you see this physics and mathematical marvel in action, you’ll decide you can’t continue without it

Advanced Surface Flattening
For those working with flexible mediums and textiles or those designing complex sheet metal geometries, you can flatten single and multiple complex surfaces using advanced surface flattening. Add relief cuts, view deformation plots, and export to other formats as needed..

Piping and Tubing
This add-in is a popular choice for those in the Energy sector and also for those who design larger spaces, such as power plants. Flexibility in the tool allows you to opt for the auto-route features or choose to manually create your route paths.

Frequently Asked Questions

Not Exactly. The Linear Static Analysis capability is the same between both, but the Simulation Standard also includes Fatigue analysis and Trend Tracker, whereas the SOLIDWORKS Premium package doesn’t include Fatigue.

SOLIDWORKS Electrical Suite is a complete electrical design package. All 3D Electrical components are generated and driven by 2D Schematics, using rules-based routing.

SOLIDWORKS Premium Features

Predict Performance

SOLIDWORKS Simulation continues to be the #1 reason to upgrade to or choose SOLIDWORKS Premium.

Motion Analysis
Our Time-Based Motion Analysis utility forecasts physical interactions between components. Reduce the number of iterations and prototypes by running your assembly setup through our Motion tool.

Assembly Structural Analysis
The easy-to-use interface paired with its accuracy is unrivaled. SOLIDWORKS Simulation allows you to easily set up a study, mesh/run the study, evaluate the results, make changes, and re-run the analysis. With our FEA tool, you can completely bypass the need to import and export CAD files, you can make material comparisons side-by-side, and you can see the effects of design changes instantly.

Complete your Design

Advanced electrical features that give your CAD Designs custom components during development.

Piping and Electrical
Our piping and electrical routing tools help you complete your design with all of the standard components, as well as the flexible components which you need to manipulate on the fly as the design changes and develops.


Bring you CAD designs to life with full rendering capabilities.

Your efforts don’t stop at CAD. You can use the Walk-through feature to explore the entire design or opt for our Visualize Professional upgrade package to give your audience/client a virtual tour of your CAD Design with fully rendered images or  animation.
