    What is the difference between 3DSpace and 3DDrive?

    July 5, 2022

    3DEXPERIENCE Platform offers two ways to store files in the Dassault Cloud. While Cloud storage offers many benefits, the two protocols (3DSpace and 3DDrive) employ very different ways in how files are shared and tracked.

    At the heart of 3DEXPERIENCE is data management. With data, the Platform can offer a rich experience connecting users across the world with a myriad of possibilities: design, communication, project management, lifecycle operations, etc. The Cloud has provided immediate benefits to design teams of all sizes and in all sectors.


    Deep Dive the Quintessential 3DEXPERIENCE App: Bookmark Editor

    June 23, 2022

    The Bookmark Editor is best correlated to File Explorer for anyone that’s used a PC environment for the last 20 years, which is common amongst us SOLIDWORKS users of many years. Having visited many clients, I have seen grand, complex folder paths with specific files choreographed to populate unique directories. One would browse to a particular folder based on a set structure for release of various products. With a well-designed structure, finding a file usually is very quick.


    3DEXPERIENCE Lifecycle and Collaboration Settings

    May 11, 2022

    For many, the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform provides an easy-to-use and ready-to-go data management ecosystem. For those, changing settings inside their tenant is not necessary. However, there are many people who want to customize the experience.


    Transition Rules for Latest 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Release

    May 3, 2022

    When it comes to 3DEXPERIENCE, there is possibly no better benefit than an integrated, ‘out-of-the-box’ data management system with very little to no setup.

    With that said, the system can be modified quite heavily, and depending on your application, this may make sharing and collaborating on ‘your terms’ even better.

    It would be atypical to release an assembly, without releasing the parts and subassemblies underneath that top level product as well. There are 2 ways to handle this.

    How Does SOLIDWORKS Communicate Data on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

    March 25, 2022

    If you’re looking for an all-inclusive environment that lets you create parts in 3D CAD, test your design in real-world conditions, collaborate with teammates and store your files without worrying about overwriting, then the  3DEXPERIENCE platform might be what you’re looking for. This article explains how 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS communicates data with Simulation, Sheet Metal and Visualize on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to better enhance your working environment.

    3DRender is a role in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform that includes xStudio, a cloud-based, ray tracing rendering application. 3DRender provides designers with a way to paint their models realistically and get an advantage in marketing competition.


    How to leverage Industry 4.0: Smart Revolution with 3DEXPERIENCE

    February 16, 2022

    Industry 4.0 is the Smart Revolution. Referring to the past blogs on the subject, this means that we have the infrastructure to connect, be intelligent and have flexibility in automation.

    Understandably, these are simple terms; however, in the application of such terms creates much complexity when applying these terms to a design ecosystem.


    Designing for Today: 3D Sculptor

    3DSculptor is a role in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform that includes xShape, a powerful Sub-D modeling software. With 3DSculptor, users can create organic shapes easily and interact with discrete, parametric modeling tools like SOLIDWORKS and xDesign. 3DSculptor is an immensely powerful asset in the creation of unique and complex consumer product designs.


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 7: Product Document Creator

    September 9, 2021

    Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform circular saw project is over halfway done! At this point, the design for the rotating guard handle is complete, but we want to make a few modifications and create a drawing that can be shared with fabricators and other external members. Using the xDocument xApp for this, we will continue the work on a Macbook Pro because xApps don’t care what kind of computer we choose!
