    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 6: 3D Mold Creator

    September 8, 2021

    One of the benefits of working in a connected design ecosystem like the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is having the ability to create, modify or update designs no matter where you are, as long as you have an internet connection. For this phase of our circular saw project, we are doing everything from the comfort of a hotel room, hundreds of miles away from the rest of our team members. Because the xMold xApp is accessible from a web browser, we can communicate seamlessly with the team and won’t miss a beat.

    Understanding 6W Tags on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

    May 24, 2021

    The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is your central hub for all things collaboration between you and your team. You can store files, share content and even do some design work all in your internet browser, along with a host of other powerful tools. However, with all of this design and social collaboration, there needs to be a way to filter through it to find a specific piece of information you are looking for. Whether you have been on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform since its launch or you recently joined to follow along with the SOLIDWORKS Forum, you know that one of the most powerful tools at our disposal are the 6W Tags.

    The Difference Between SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks

    March 16, 2021

    One of my favorite things about SOLIDWORKS is being able to take a design from my head to a 3D Model and then from the 3D model into G-Code that can drive a CNC machine. Almost everyone knows that creating 3D models is a core SOLIDWORKS function, but what about programming for a CNC machine?

    Since 2018, SOLIDWORKS CAM and CAMWorks have been an integral part of the SOLIDWORKS design ecosystem, allowing us to use our 3D models to create parts on a CNC machine. Like many products within SOLIDWORKS, there are different packages to fit your needs, whether you're milling, turning or doing advanced machining operations. Keep reading to learn more about our CAM offerings, as well as which package might suit you best.
