SolidWorks is a solid modeling software that allows you to design products in 3 dimensions. The technique is generally to sketch 2D profiles then use methods like extruding and lofting to produce the solid shape. Here are some examples:
To model a paperclip, sketch the profile then sweep the wire diameter along it.
To model a washer, sketch the inside and outside diameters then extrude the profile to the thickness required.
To model a sheet metal box, sketch the base rectangle, extrude a solid cuboid, select a face and the bent edges then convert to sheet metal. Finally, flatten to see the flat pattern.
