    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.


    Designing for Today: 3DRender

    March 7, 2022

    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

    January 24, 2022

    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!


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 3: 3D Creator with 3DP Prototyping

    September 3, 2021

    As we move further into our 3DEXPERIENCE design process for our circular saw project, we are now going to work with the mechanical design using xDesign. This 3DEXPERIENCE application (xApp) is a 3-dimensional parametric design tool that operates under the 3D Creator Role in the platform. Since the xApps don’t care what operating system is being used because they are cloud-powered, today’s walk-through will be done using a Macbook Pro. Traditional CAD environments require Windows as the operating system as most continue to use it. However, using this platform we are expanding our options and can use a number of operating systems to design, share and collaborate amongst our team.


    The Cutting Edge of Design - Part 11: Mold Design

    July 21, 2021

    Developing a tooling split can be an arduous process using lesser design tools. When using 3DEXPERIENCE, the workflow is very direct. With powerful mold tools built in, regardless of what access level you have in 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS, you can efficiently create a tooling split when building molds. With our carving knife handle, this is no exception.

    We reviewed the plastic injection process in our last installment. However, this part started in xShape and from that app we were able to streamline the creation of a very complicated shape. Today we are going to show how the mold tools can be easily utilized for functionality on this updated geometry.
