Thank You For Your Interest In SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Designer


One of our SOLIDWORKS Experts will be in touch.  In the meantime, take a look at SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Design.

SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Designer delivers a flexible, innovative conceptual design environment. It’s complementary to SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software, so you can focus on quickly solving design challenges; develop, verify, and present your concept; and then easily transition to building part and assembly structures. Continuous file saving keeps design files current, safe, and secure. And with your data accessed via the cloud, development teams can communicate from anywhere, anytime to easily innovate and collaborate.


You can capture ideas digitally, quickly create 2D and 3D concept models, get feedback from internal and external stakeholders, and easily manage multiple concepts before committing engineering time for further development.

SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Designer works with Platform Contributor to easily save and manage your information in a safe, secure environment. It is complementary to SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, allowing you to validate your concepts, then transition the model to SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD to complete the detailed designs and documentation.

Key capabilities include:

Sketch Motion
Evaluate your concepts for fit and function with early stage concept validation using trace paths, area sweeps, and alerts to help ensure you always move forward with the best design.

Deformable 3D Geometry
Get instant performance verification with realistic 3D components that behave as they would in the real world.

Mechanism Synthesis
Define a partially dimensioned layout of your mechanism and how it will be positioned at discrete steps, and SOLIDWORKS Conceptual Design will calculate the undefined dimensions.

Additional Capabilities:

  • Single Modeling Environment
  • Concept Management
  • SOCIAL/Collaborative
  • Cloud/Connected
  • Mechanism Design
  • Synthesis + 2D to 3D Motion
  • Direct Editing
  • Predictive Computing
