SolidWorks Simulation integrates a virtual test environment with your design process. You can answer the most complex "what if" questions to explore new ideas, reduce design risk, and make better design decisions. You can improve product quality, reduce costs, and finish your products faster. 2012 highlights include the ability to investigate motion characteristics, such as actuator force, joint loads, and part displacements to help source the best components for your design.
