A comprehensive Simulation design solution
SolidWorks Plastics brings easy-to-use injection molding simulation directly to the designers of plastic parts and injection molds, as well as advanced CAE analysis. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process to predict manufacturing-related defects on parts and molds. You can quickly evaluate manufacturability while you design, to eliminate costly mold rework, improve part quality, and accelerate time to market. A Results Adviser provides troubleshooting steps and practical design advice to help diagnose and avoid potential problems.
Listed below, are some of the powerful features that SolidWorks Plastics users benefit from. With the addition of standard part libraries, utilities that will search for design errors, fasteners and tools that will automatically estimate your manufacturing costs, the capabilities are endless.

SolidWorks Plastics Standard
For plastics part designers, SolidWorks Plastics Standard enables you to optimize parts for manufacturability in the early stages of design. Easy to learn and use, SolidWorks Plastics Standard is fully embedded within the SolidWorks CAD environment so you can analyze and modify designs at the same time you optimize for form, fit, and function.
SolidWorks Plastics Professional
SolidWorks Plastics Professional gives anyone who designs or builds injection molds an accurate, easy-to-use way to optimize them. You can quickly create and analyze single-cavity, multi-cavity, and family mold layouts, including sprues, runners, and gates. You can even balance runner systems and estimate cycle time, clamp tonnage, and shot size, enabling you to optimize feed system design and avoid costly mold rework.
SolidWorks Plastics Premium
SolidWorks Plastics Premium includes everything in SolidWorks Plastics Professional plus advanced simulation functionality that allows CAE analysts and mold designers to analyze mold cooling line layouts and predict molded part warpage. Users can design and analyze simple or complex mold cooling line layouts, optimize cooling system design to minimize cycle times and decrease manufacturing costs and optimize part and mold design, material selection and processing parameters to reduce or eliminate molded part warpage.
