SolidWorks is a CAD software by SolidWorks Corporation. SolidWorks is one of the leading mechanical drawing software programs, and is the most sold mechanical design system in Israel. Compared to Autocad, which is designed mainly for the field of architecture and building, SolidWorks is more oriented to mechanical engineering.

 Note: If you are using an older version of SolidWorks (e.g. 2019) but would like to have the newest features included in 2021 SP3, please uninstall your current version completely, do a computer reboot, delete all the old folders, then do a brand new installation of SolidWorks 2021 SP3 by following below instructions. If this is your first time to install SolidWorks, skip to Step 9 directly:
  

1. As best practice, deactivate your current SolidWorks license before proceeding.
Double-click to open Solidworks 2019 and navigate to the top-right corner, click Question Mark then select Deactivate Licenses…
