RobotWorks works in SolidWorks to simulate and program all kinds of industrial robots. RobotWorks lets users perform reach studies and collision tests to choose an appropriate robot and fixture. Simulations run with all security functions activated so there will be no unpleasant surprises when a real robot runs the generated program. The software also translates code from one robot to another, and can import models from major CAD systems.
