Freehand Sketching in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer software
SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer removes the constraints of traditional industrial design software to give you a flexible, intuitive, powerful modeling environment that will allow you to express your creativity without compromise. Quickly capture, develop, and communicate your design ideas directly in the digital model.
SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer (SWID) enables you to create multiple 2D and 3D industrial designs concepts, where product aesthetics are being evolved and judged. In this phase, many ideas are captured and developed in response to a design brief or problem statement. These ideas are then reviewed by internal and external stakeholders before investigating further and refining the best designs.
WHY CHOOSE SOLIDWORKS INDUSTRIAL DESIGNER?
- Intuitive freehand sketching allows you to capture your design ideas directly in a 3D environment
- Expand your ideas in 3D with freeform sculpting techniques – simply push and pull geometry on screen
- Easily snapshot multiple design ideas in Concept Archives and then share them throughout your design community to gauge customers’ reactions

Features of SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer
Simplify and Amplify your industrial design process
Capture your Ideas
SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer breaks down traditional design process barriers by offering your business:
- Quickly capture your ideas in a natural, instinctive way using the screen as a virtual sketchpad.
- Concept sketching provides easy-to-use tools for creating sketch-based concepts and ideas.
- Simplified design evolution quickly moves your concept from sketches to complex 3D geometry helping accelerate time-to-market.
Expand your Ideas in 3D
Expand your ideas in 3D with freeform sculpting techniques – simply push and pull geometry on screen like virtual clay until you achieve the desired result:
- Integrated freeform and parametric surface/solid modeling merges the benefits of freeform sub-division, parametric solid, and surface modeling with direct editing.
- Direct editing easily transforms both native and imported solid geometry, reducing remodeling time and allowing you to focus on innovation.
- Realistic rendering tools enable you to produce stunning images to help convey exactly how the finished product might look.
