SolidWorks for students was developed to foster successful career goals. SolidWorks Student Edition 2014-2015 Software allows you to sharpen your skills outside the classroom as you learn to design and cultivate more sophisticated projects. This edition includes SolidWorks Premium software, simulation tools, animation functionality, eDrawings and much more. By learning to work with SolidWorks software, you’ll gain vital skills in mechanical CAD, design validation and data management. A degree program alone is not enough to establish a clear advantage in today’s job market. It is important for students going into a professional engineering or industrial design industry to obtain real world experience.  Let this easy-to-use software give you the competitive edge you need.

SolidWorks for students preps for high-demand careers

The SolidWorks | Student Edition Software comes equipped with many features to help students understand the skills needed for engineering and industrial design. The following are just a few of the features we find most helpful.

  • eDrawings is a feature that helps students collaborate with others through product development. It is the first email-enabled communication tool that offers unique point-and-click animation capabilities. Anyone with a PC can receive and interpret your 2D or 3D design data.
  • SolidWorks Plastics is an easy-to-use injection molding simulation used by designers of plastic parts and advanced CAE analysts. It simulates how melted plastic flows during the injection molding process so designers can predict manufacturing-related defects on parts and molds.
  • SolidWorks Motion allows the designer to view beyond the free drag movement available in a CAD environment and into an actual physical calculation of the forces and motions of an assembly as it would move under external forces and/or internal loads. This simulation can calculate the effect of forces, springs, dampers, gravity, bushings and contact between compnonents.
  • Library of Standards is a feature that establishes design standards and allows you to easily check drawings or models to create uniform designs and proper documentation. With it you can automatically correct nonconforming design and drafting issues.

Whether students are looking to gain relevant work experience or explore their design abilities, SolidWorks for students software is a great resource to get them started. This edition gives students access to industry tools with a 12 month term-of-use license.
(Please note that SolidWorks Student Edition 2014-2015 Software  is for use on Windows® 7 and 8 operating systems ONLY)
