Keep ahead in CAD

The landscape for 3D CAD and engineering design is constantly changing. New innovations in the technology created by the largest vendors can mean it can be difficult for users to keep up with the latest changes.

Before its acquisition by Solid Solutions in 2016, Cadtek was one of the longest established resellers of SOLIDWORKS in Europe. As part of Solid Solutions we have over 15,000 customers in the UK using SOLIDWORKS, one of Dassault Systeme’s portfolio of products.

This website is designed to look at new technologies across the whole spectrum of CAD taken from the view of a typical SOLIDWORKS user.


We will begin by exploring the SOLIDWORKS portfolio with in-depth detail on the features and capabilities of the core CAD packages and those in virtual testing, the Simulation packages. We will also explore the 3DExperience platform to demystify what it is and what it has to offer for SOLIDWORKS users.

Using customer examples we will also explore the technology now in use around Virtual Reality and Extended Reality along with reverse engineering and taking a closer look at the scanners available.


Use simulation to assess the integrity of products under a wide range of loading conditions to guide decisions on product performance and quality.

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Premium

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Professional

SOLIDWORKS Simulation Standard


The  3DEXPERIENCE platform is a Business Experience platform. It provides software solutions for every organisation in your company – from engineering to marketing to sales – that help you in your value creation process to create differentiating consumer experiences. With a single, easy-to-use interface, it powers INDUSTRY SOLUTION EXPERIENCES – based on 3D design, analysis, simulation, and intelligence software in a collaborative, interactive environment. It is available on-premise and in public or private cloud.

Virtual Testing – SOLIDWORKS Simulation

The flagship product for SOLIDWORKS is Premium. Two other editions are available, Professional and Standard. To look at them in detail and compare capabilities:


SOLIDWORKS Professional


Computational Fluid Dynamics

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation takes the complexity out of computational fluid dynamics. You can quickly and easily simulate fluid flow, heat transfer, and fluid forces that are critical to the success of your design. 

SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation

Plastics Maunfacturability

SOLIDWORKS Plastics makes it easy for companies that design plastic parts or injection molds to predict and avoid manufacturing defects during the earliest stages of design, eliminating costly rework, improving quality, and accelerating time-to-market.
