Why choose SOLIDWORKS Plastics?

SOLIDWORKS® Plastics takes the guesswork—and the risk—out of designing plastic parts, allowing you to accurately assess manufacturability, functionality, and quality, throughout the design process. The result is shortened cycle times, reduced defects, and the elimination of costly rework.

When designing injection-molded plastic parts, the proof will set you free. Using virtual testing prior to manufacturing ensures your design will emerge from the injection molding machine as intended.

SOLIDWORKS® Plastics delivers easy-to-use simulation for analyzing plastic parts and injection molds. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects so you can quickly evaluate part manufacturability while you design.


SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard

Ensure parts are manufactureable during the design process.  Easy to learn and use, SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard is fully embedded within SOLIDWORKS CAD so you can analyze and modify part designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit and function.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional

Builds upon SOLIDWORKS Plastics Standard to analyze mold designs.  With easy-to-use tools you can quickly analyze single-and multi-cavity and family mold layouts including sprues, runners and gates to estimate cycle time and to optimize feed system design.

SOLIDWORKS Plastics Premium

Includes SOLIDWORKS Plastics Professional with advanced simulation functionality to analyze mold cooling line layouts and part warpage.  Optimizing cooling line minimizes cycle times and decreases manufacturing costs.
