What's New in SOLIDWORKS 2018


SOLIDWORKS 2018 provides four new solutions to help you simplify interactions between product development teams and ultimately improve your business. Accelerate product innovation and grow your business with these new processes:


Complete solution to bring your ideas to market

For years, companies have survived despite having a separation between their design and manufacturing departments, both by organization, and by the tools they use. SOLIDWORKS Design-to-Manufacturing Process Solution provides everything you need to bring your ideas to market. Design to final assembly work can now happen concurrently in one seamlessly integrated and managed system.

The right data, at the right time, for the right people

Electronic data within organization needs to be easy to access regardless of the format - from documents and spreadsheets to metadata, processes data, and data from enterprise resource planning. SOLIDWORKS Distributed Data Management (DDM) Process Solution can organize all this data so it is easy to access across many disciplines and departments. It also makes it easy to capture non-electronic data and complex electronic data such as 3D shapes.

Connect your smart devices to your customers

As web and app functionalities are added to everything from cars to sunglasses, many companies are looking for intelligent tools that work together so they can design and build the “smart” products today’s markets demand. Recognizing this, one of the easiest and fastest ways to achieve a more efficient process when designing connected devices is to use one single, unified environment.
