SolidWorks is a 3D modelling package with a strong focus towards CAD/CAM.

Solidworks is a "process-based" 3D modelling package where parts are constructed from primitive motions such as extrudes (to give a basic block) followed by operations such as cuts and revolves.

This lends itself well to manufacturing using machines such as lathes and CNC milling machines and other machines which require a strong programmatic approach to manufacturing.
