Solidworks is an intuitive CAD software designed for designers and engineers to streamline the product development process. By simplifying the work steps, innovative designs can be brought to market faster.

Processor power

Solidworks unfolds its full potential with a quad- or six-core processor with a high clock frequency from 3.5-4.0 GHz. Almost all tasks are done with the processor unit and the main memory. Solidworks uses the CPU cores of your workstation for rendering and simulation to process and render the 3D CAD model. The more cores, the faster the rendering process will be.

Memory Advantage

At Solidworks, the main memory is the pivotal point of all computing tasks. We recommend to provide at least 16 GB RAM for your applications. For the use of Solidworks Simulation we recommend at least 32 GB RAM. We will be happy to test whether this is sufficient for your application.
Optimal graphics performance

The Solidworks modules Photoview, Photoworks and Visualize take advantage of nVidia's CUDA core technology, which can process rendering in parallel and much faster than the workstation's CPU. The load is distributed to the graphics processor and the rendering time is significantly reduced by this process. The number of CUDA cores on your graphics card affects the time Solidworks takes to render your CAD models. The higher the number of CUDA cores on your graphics card, the shorter the render times for your CAD models will be. We recommend using a nVidia Quadro series graphics card certified for Solidworks. Certified graphics cards offer you the highest quality and detail for your CAD design to achieve 100 percent accurate calculations. Further advantages are the optimal driver support. Solidworks works closely with nVidia developers to continuously improve and enhance the productivity, stability and reliability of 3D graphics for Solidworks users in combination with Quadro graphics cards. Depending on your budget and CAD requirements, we'll find the best graphics solution for you.

Hard Disk Accelerator

Choosing a hard drive has a significant impact on performance, especially if you don't have enough memory. With an SSD M2, the workstation boots and loads the program much faster. Depending on the requirements, we recommend a correspondingly large SSD and, if necessary, an additional hard disk as a storage medium.
