The software tweaks and hardware upgrades that provide as much as a 5.5 times increase in SolidWorks’ performance.

For years, CATI’s Adrian Fanjoy and Josh Altergott have been testing various SOLIDWORKS environments for optimal performance. This whitepaper will show you results of these extensive studies and teach you how to optimize your SOLIDWORKS environment for best performance.

The research consisted of a series of rigorous, controlled tests against a typical workstation environment along with a series of actions that represented tasks commonly performed by users in a typical workday.

A Sample of the Research Findings:

  • Simple changes, such as adjusting the default Windows and SOLIDWORKS settings, or setting up models properly, can make a big difference without costing a dime.
  • Changes in modeling methodology can greatly improve performance.
  • Investing in a Intel® Xeon® processor-based workstation with more RAM, robust processors and faster hard drives will increase SOLIDWORKS productivity.
  • Typical ROI achieved in 6 Months.
