What is SolidWorks?

SolidWorks is an industry standard computer-aided design and computer-aided engineering solid modeling application developed by Dassault Systèmes.

How do I obtain SolidWorks?

If you are enrolled in a class or Independent Study that requires SolidWorks, and you haven't been provided with instructions, please contact the Pratt IT help desk. It should be noted that our SolidWorks Education Edition license is for educational purposes only.

Can I access SolidWorks from a Mac?

We are currently recommending that MAC users install SolidWorks on a VCM virtual machine, and access it through Microsoft Remote Desktop. Although Intel Macs supported Boot Camp, and could run SolidWorks on a Windows partition, Macs with Apple processors do not support this feature.

How do I install SolidWorks?

Please contact your instructor or the Pratt IT help desk for directions.
