Learn how to analyze and fix SOLIDWORKS performance in your models and drawings.

You can be in control of the performance of your SOLIDWORKS model. Because the speed of your models directly depends on how you model them. 

I have read every article and watched every video on SOLIDWORKS performance I could find, so you don't have to.

After 200 hours, I have condensed everything down into a 127-page ebook, written in the style of my blog posts.

After shuffling through it, I already see so many things I had no idea would make a performance difference. This is amazing, thank you!

Lauritz Berg - Product designer - Leisure Travel Vans

Hi, I'm Peter Brinkhuis. I'm a mechanical engineer by trade and have been using SOLIDWORKS since my first internship 15 years ago. I started CAD Booster in 2017.

Over the years, I have designed some crazy machines in SOLIDWORKS. Our large assemblies and drawings often became slow, so I gathered a lot of random tips to improve SOLIDWORKS performance. But I never really understood what determined the speed of my models.

So last year, I set out to properly research the topic and to write down everything I could find about performance and SOLIDWORKS. The result is ten times the size of my biggest blog posts.

Then, I decided to raise the quality. I hired an editor to improve my writing and hired a designer to make everything look awesome. I am happy to present our results to you now.

Mates are calculated before assembly features, so if you mate to assembly features, all mates are calculated twice.

I got a part to rebuild in 293 seconds, 92 seconds and 2.9 seconds. All three parts had identical geometry in the end.
