SolidWorks software is a 3D CAD program that lets designers quickly sketch out ideas, experiment with features and dimensions, and produce models and detailed drawings. Nowadays, it is the most widely used software by engineers and designers throughout the design development phase. SolidWorks models are transforming ideas into reality, by having the ability to simulate the concept design through different cases. Testing during each phase, starting from designing concepts and ending with product development, is significant. Medical products need the correct understanding regarding how products are going to work and it is important to examine carefully whether the final products will behave as desired.

SolidWorks uses the principle of parametric design and generates three kinds of interconnected files: the part, the assembly, and the drawing. Parameters refer to constraints whose values determine the shape or geometry of the model or assembly. Parameters can be either numeric parameters, such as line lengths and circle diameters, or geometric parameters, such as tangent, parallel, concentric, horizontal, vertical, etc. Numeric parameters can be associated with each other with the use of relations, which allows them to capture design intent. SolidWorks enables the user to import and translate data, also securely store them and retain their versatility and accessibility.

SolidWorks provides easy-to-use surface modeling capabilities allowing user to create high-quality ergonomic surfaces that give to the products a cutting-edge design while ensuring it is robust, fit-for-purpose, and can be easily manufactured. SolidWorks uses a 3D design approach. A 3D model can be created from the initial sketch to the final result. Using this model, the user can create 2D drawings or mate components consisting of parts or subassemblies to create 3D assemblies. User can also create 2D drawings of 3D assemblies. 3D models can help to automate production procedures and are useful for organic shapes as they define 3D features and not 2D geometries. SolidWorks generates Geometric Dimensioning and Tolerance based drawings per ANSI/ ISO standards for correctness and completeness. SolidWorks simulation helps determine factors of safety, Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF), Vibration Level Monitoring, Efficiency Estimation, Development time and Reduction in Product Cost. SolidWorks ensures the medical equipment to meet stringent safety and reliability standards

Applications in Healthcare

SolidWorks software is a digital tool of choice for many manufacturers of diagnostic and clinical equipment, surgical tools, implants, drug delivery systems and pharmaceutical packaging systems. Concerning the Product Engineers who use SolidWorks software to design Medical Device, the testing prosses during each stage of product development is crucial for understanding how products will work and whether they will behave as desired. Product engineers have to predict the life of implantable devices accurately so that patients can have them removed or replaced in a timely, non-life-threatening manner. Implanted devices, such as cardiovascular stents, have to be error free because failure can cause fatalities. Orthopedic implants, such as hip and knee replacements, must function flawlessly to avoid pain and the danger of fracture to patients
