Solidworks 2017 Premium
Users can test product performance against real life motion and forces with our rich simulation capabilities. Ensure manufacturability and resolve complex assembly issues early in the design process with tolerance stack-up analysis tools. Quickly incorporate printed circuit board data into your 3D model, and create and document layouts for electrical wiring, piping, and tubing with the extended toolsets of SOLIDWORKS. You can also work with 3D scanned data in SOLIDWORKS Premium. Experience all the benefits of a complete 3D design solution with SOLIDWORKS Premium.

Maintain direct integration of native CAD files from PTC® Creo®, Autodesk® Inventor®, Siemens® NX, SolidEdge®, and CATIA®, and treat them like native components.Avoid fixing errors or problems due to SOLIDWORKS awareness of all components in the native CAD files, like face and edge IDs.Directly open imported files and treat them like Base Parts, so you can freely make design modifications without affecting the native file.Update both part and assembly files as design changes take place with Update Model feature.
Create multiple variable chamfers in one simple operation with the enhanced Chamfer tool that now includes advanced options found in Fillet.Switch any pre-existing Chamfer to a Fillet and vice versa to apply design changes in seconds.Capture and access previous hole definitions and apply pre-saved specifications in an instant with Advanced Hole specification.Construct stepped holes faster with one operation using Advanced Hole specification, eliminating the need for complex revolve cuts or multiple features.
Create geometry on any surfaces, with improved wrap features.Drag and drop features into place, then decide whether to wrap it as emboss, deboss, or just a 3D Curve.Offset 3D Curve on a surface, and offset edges or complete faces.Define a suitable offset value and use the new 3D Curve as a reference for other features.
Easily layout components with the new mate capability Magnetic Mates.Publish parts and assemblies as assets with appropriate connection points for easy drag and drop mating.Reposition models easily by un-snapping and re-snapping to new locations according to design needs.Create super lightweight model version or Speedpak configuration, including published references.
Link a note to a table cell - You can link a note to the contents of any BOM or hole table cell.Jagged Outlines - Crop and detail views support jagged outlines. Break views support jagged cut break line styles.Mirror drawing views - You can display model, relative to model, and predefined drawing views as mirror views without creating the mirror components. Projected and other derived views use the mirror state from their parent view.Emphasize outlines - In section views, you can emphasize the outline of cut faces in compliance with ISO 128-50. Typically, this means setting the outline of the faces thicker than other model lines in the section view.Create crop and detail views with no outline
View more native CAD formats, such as CATIA® V5 and Autodesk® Inventor®.Manipulate geometry, markup, and measure CAD formats accurately, just like any other eDrawings file.Give manufacturers the information they need to get their jobs done faster by supporting more neutral formats (such as 3DXML, IGES, OBJ, and STEP AP242) with 3D product manufacturing information from the original CAD system.Gain easy access to product data anywhere with mobile apps for both Android® and iOS® devices.Add 3D reality to design views with Google® Cardboard.
