ParetoWorks Guide

ParetoWorks Logo

Installation and overview

This guide will go over installing and activating ParetoWorks in SolidWorks.

Completed Optimization

Basic Optimization

Learn how to load an existing project file, perform finite element analysis (FEA), and optimize a simple part.


Assign Design Conditions and manufacturing constraint

Learn how to assign design conditions to your model to simulate forces for optimization.


optimize models with radial symmetry

Learn how to impose radial symmetry on your model for optimization


optimization objectives

Learn how Pareto can differentiate when solving topology optimization for stiffness, strength, or vibration.


Advanced topics

In this section, we will go over topics like multiple loads on one model and multi bodied models.



In this section, we will review the different menu options relative to the Pareto 5-step process.
