Overall Satisfaction with SOLIDWORKS

To Design different products having multiple Configurations and high number if components which needs to be assemble further in the later stage and have high complexity of assembly. We use complete features for designing, maintaining Bill of Material, Configuration Matrix, Assembly, Material properties, To make 2D Drawings out of it and many more features.
  • Isolate feature
  • Configuration Matrix
  • Material Properties Selection
  • Assembly
  • Bill of Material
  • Material Properties like Weight and Volume
  • Self Verification of Design
  • Design for Manufacturability Integration
  • Web Version of SOLIDWORKS
  • Mobile Version of SOLIDWORKS
  • Integration with Sharepoint or onedrive for data
  • Assembly
  • Configuration
  • Designing
  • Average not much exciting result but yes it is a good product
  • Improvement needed as competitor are doing pretty well.
Creo is basically focusing on pure solid 3D modeling, while on the other hand the SOLIDWORKS' modeling approach is more parametric type and it is suiting for my purpose of use. Easy to use interface of SOLIDWORKS as compared to Creo. Features are easy to use. Just one click away while in other softwares things are more complex.

Do you think SOLIDWORKS delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with SOLIDWORKS's feature set?


Did SOLIDWORKS live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of SOLIDWORKS go as expected?


Would you buy SOLIDWORKS again?


Ah! For the Configuration maintenance of the product in which lot of configuration are available, SOLIDWORKS is the best to use and switch between those configuration and the plus point is if you update one area, other will automatically update. The worst is Bill of Material feature and the integration with other cloud application like one drive etc. and they should provide the web version for the licensed one as to access few files while not on workstation.
