At a Glance: SolidWorks
Founded by an MIT graduate in 1993, SolidWorks produces one of the most commonly used 3D computer-aided design (CAD) software suites in the world. Engineers, manufacturers, and designers across the world use the software to transform product concepts—whether pencil sketches, imported images, or other data—into CAD drawings, models, and animations that can be used for product prototyping and production.
Computer-aided designers experienced in SolidWorks are proficient not only in the software itself but also in related aspects of mechanical engineering and prototyping. In addition to rendering your design in 3D in an industry-standard file format, the SolidWorks designers on Upwork can make suggestions on the designs themselves, potentially saving you time and money further along in the production process. They can reverse-engineer from existing designs to help create improved models as well as add electrical, hydraulic, pneumatic, or other systems to otherwise completed designs. These professionals have experience in a multitude of specialties ranging from housing components to biomedical equipment to furniture, making it easy for you to find someone to accommodate your project’s precise requirements.
