SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Modeling Software

SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD is known world-wide as an easy-to-learn, powerful modeling software. 

Improve Design & Manufacturing Processes

If your manufacturing company is looking to become a market leader, it's critical to have the latest cutting-edge technology for your business to operate at its full potential. 

We understand the pain points that manufacturers experience when producing design and engineering efficiency. That's why we're proud to offer SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD, a product suite that's easy to learn, as well as powerful and effective. SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD is a modeling software that helps businesses design products, tools and equipment. We currently offer three different types of software depending on your requirements and needs.

Our most robust 3D design solution.

Make your 3D design experience the most productive. Gain industry-leading part, assembly, and drawing capabilities with built-in simulation, cost estimation, rendering, animation, and product data management.

SOLIDWORKS Premium is the gold standard when it comes to creating a 3D design experience. Our software comes with both professional and standard capabilities and tests your products’ performance using real-life scenarios through simulation processes. 

Equipped with linear static analysis, advanced surface flattening, piping and tubing design and conduit design, our 3D modeling software can take your engineering practices to the next level.

SOLIDWORKS Professional
A powerful 3D design suite.

Get all the power of the SOLIDWORKS Standard package, plus additional capabilities to collaborate between ECAD and MCAD systems, automate cost estimates, check designs and drawings, and gain an advanced library and renderings.

SOLIDWORKS Professional helps manufacturers work more effectively. Our high-end software has all of the features of the standard package alongside automatic cost-estimating tools, file management, photo renderings and conversion tools.

Equipped with CAD libraries, advanced design and CAD standards checking, this robust engineering tool can quickly improve business operations and streamline processes.

Easy-to-use, essential software.

Create fully detailed parts, assemblies, and production-level drawings, plus generate complex surfaces, sheet metal flat patterns, and structural welded assemblies.

SOLIDWORKS Standard provides the building blocks needed to achieve cohesive modeling. Straightforward and easy to use, SOLIDWORKS helps manufacturers create fully detailed parts, assemblies and drawings. This allows you to create complex surfaces, structural welded assemblies and more. Designs can even be automated with the wizard tool, allowing you to find out more about your components, such as their environmental impact. 

Our software comes equipped with part and assembly modeling and lets users create 2D drawings.

SOLIDWORKS 2023 Premiere

Learn the new user-requested features in SOLIDWORKS 2023 as well as improved performance and quality enhancements.


The great thing about SOLIDWORKS CAD software is that you get to choose the software that suits your needs and budget. We always recommend using 3D software for a high-quality modeling experience. 

There's a reason why SOLIDWORKS is used by most people in the engineering design space today. It helps people and companies turn their ideas into tangible designs. The software's remarkable 3D rotation capabilities enhance the user experience, bringing designs to life like never before. 

SOLIDWORKS is used to evolve mechatronics systems from start to finish. The software helps people plan, visualize their ideations, model, create prototypes and assess whether or not the creation is feasible. 

The software then designs the various elements that go into the project, such as mechanical, electrical and software components, to ensure it functions as it should. 

The great thing about our 3D software is that it's more than just an application. SOLIDWORKS comes equipped with premium support. With a goal of driving growth across companies through 3D engineering, we're there to help our customers each step of the way.

Why Prent chose solidworks

We found the SOLIDWORKS environment to be a better solution for several reasons. SOLIDWORKS is easier to use. In fact, a lot of engineers right out of college know how to use it, which reduces training requirements. It's better for integrating with our customers and partners, and provides the integrated design, analysis, and PDM tools that we need at the best price.

Design for Plastic Thermoform Packaging

Prent Corporation moved to SOLIDWORKS from Unigraphics. As a global, 600-person company, they needed automated, streamlined design for their custom packaging supporting medical, electronics, and consumer products industries.


They doubled throughput and saw a significant, similar jump in global sales.

Upgrading From 2D to 3D Helps You Succeed

No matter what you design, moving to 3D will help you do a better job. It's that plain and simple. You automatically generate time, cost, and material savings by expanding into this technology.
