SOLIDWORKS Hardware Requirements

These are the minimum hardware requirements for SOLIDWORKS and every SolidBox laptop and desktop meets these requirements. You might get by with the minimum SOLIDWORKS hardware requirements for basic part modeling and working with small assemblies. However, the bare minimum won’t cut the mustard for most SOLIDWORKS users. Without a workstation that meets or exceeds the minimum hardware requirements for SOLIDWORKS, you risk substantial loss of productivity. Moreover, if your system doesn’t meet the minimum SOLIDWORKS hardware requirements, it could become unstable and result in lost data. Therefore, if you’re unsure about what is best for your use-case, reach out to us. Give us a call at 877-697-9269 or email us and we can pair you with the right system.
