How to Find SOLIDWORKS Xpress Product Codes

Wednesday March 15, 2023 at 9:00am

SOLIDWORKS Xpress tools come with every seat of SOLIDWORKS and can be unlocked using a product code.

Let’s walk you through how to find SOLIDWORKS Xpress product codes in 5 simple steps.


Xpress codes are generated by SOLIDWORKS so they can monitor how many people are using these applications and keep them relevant and updated.

There are 5 Xpress products available to SOLIDWORKS users:

Click each product in the list to find out more about them.

Xpress products must be activated before they can be used in SOLIDWORKS by an Xpress product code.


  1. Open SOLIDWORKS and navigate to Tools > Xpress Products and select the product that you wish to activate.
  2. Click the link to take you to the MYSOLIDWORKS website.
  3. Log in using your 3DEXPERIENCE ID.

    Note that the 3DEXPERIENCE ID has replaced SOLIDWORKS IDs, but your login will be the same.

    If you don’t have a 3DEXPERIENCE ID, then you can create one here using your SOLIDWORKS serial number.

  4. A code will be generated for you.
  5. Copy and paste the code into the SOLIDWORKS dialog box and click Okay.
  6. The Xpress product should open and be available for use.

Xpress product codes should only need to be generated the first time you use them on each installation of SOLIDWORKS.
