SolidWorks is capable of numerous useful features for better designer performance. CAD animation has easy-to-use tools that can help the user create a dynamic product presentation, thus saving more time and increasing output. It also has revision control, where you can track changes to designs with easy access to the most updated files available. You can save time and development costs by continuously checking your designs against cost targets with automated manufacturing cost estimation tools included in the SolidWorks software. You can create photorealistic renders and animations with the use of PhotoView 360. Other available features include part and assembly modeling, tolerance analysis, interference check, and a CAD library, where you can view and access pre-built CAD models and other CAD data.
