How to activate SOLIDWORKS Xpress Products

All SOLIDWORKS CAD licenses come with some fantastic lightweight Simulation tools called SimulationXpress and FloXpress.

These are cut down version of the bigger packages. While included with every desktop CAD License, they need to be activated before they’ll be accessible.

Step 1

Launch a SOLIDWORKS session and navigate to the Tools tab.

Hover over the Xpress Products menu and select the tool you wish to launch from the right hand fly out. You will also see DFMXpress & DriveWorksXpress, which can be activated in the same manner. In the example below we’ve slected SimulationXpress.


Step 2

The first time you launch the add in, you’ll be presented with a pop-up window, where you can enter the Xpress Activation Code.

Click link.
