High-Technology Design Solutions for the Innovative Engineer

SOLIDWORKS solutions for the High Tech industry give designers and engineers the tools necessary to achieve business goals, while creating the next generation innovations that are faster, lighter, connected and smarter than current products.

If you’re looking to accelerate design and production, you’ve come to the right place. From collaborative and integrated design tools to technical communication, SOLIDWORKS design solutions help engineers and designers achieve results in an easy-to-use, intuitive environment. Best of all, we cover all aspects of product development, offering tools that help you conceptualize, visualize, test, and document your 3D designs.

Surface Generation Limited

Surface Generation added SOLIDWORKS Electrical design software to its set of SOLIDWORKS mechanical design, finite element analysis (FEA), and computational fluid dynamics analysis (CFD) tools to realize similar productivity gains in the development of electrical systems for its industry-leading composites manufacturing machines to those that it’s enjoyed in mechanical design using SOLIDWORKS solutions.
