SWIFT™
While most designers understand how powerful the capabilities of 3D CAD software can be, many of these same users may have felt they were forced to spend a significant amount of time mastering the system to recognize the inherent benefits. SWIFT is just one of the things that lets any SolidWorks® user realize the benefits of 3D CAD without having to learn complicated techniques. In other words, SWIFT lets you focus less on the CAD tool and more on your design. SWIFT Technology is about letting any SolidWorks user realize the benefits of 3D CAD without becoming an expert
