    Your Complete Guide To 3DEXPERIENCE World 2022

    January 13, 2022

    This February, 3DEXPERIENCE World brings a vibrant community of designers, engineers, entrepreneurs and business leaders together to learn, engage, share knowledge and drive innovation. This is all centered around our 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio for our SOLIDWORKS customers.


    Designing for Today: SOLIDWORKS Cloud Tools Series

    January 10, 2022

    This next series of blogs about tools available on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform will focus on SOLIDWORKS Cloud. SOLIDWORKS Cloud is a set of tools that allows us to complete a vast majority of our design work right inside a web browser. There is no need for expensive high-end hardware or CAD workstations. This opens design workstation possibilities to multiple platforms and devices. Mac, PC, Linux, iOS and Android are all now options for an engineering PC. Unlike virtually hosted machines, these are tools designed, built and run as browser-based applications. This eliminates the need for installing applications. You simply open a browser and start to design.

    3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Maker Increases Accessibility

    December 22, 2021

    Makers, hobbyists and DIY’ers everywhere are excited about 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers. Gaining access to cloud-connected Computer-Aided Design (CAD) modeling tools allows you to design, create and share your ideas with others from anywhere. A lot of engineers have hobbies that this tool can greatly enhance at the minimal cost of $99 per year. From deck building to robot competitions, this may just be what you're looking for to up your design game! And if you are a hobbyist that wants to get into CAD professionally, this also gives you a leg-up with the ability to open all standard part files that SOLIDWORKS certification courses require.


    Apache Log4j Vulnerability

    December 15, 2021

    With the recent identification of the security issue related to open-source Apache Log4j Utility (CVE-2021-44228), TriMech would like to provide details from Dassault Systèmes regarding the impacts on the SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE solutions and products that our clients may be utilizing.


    SOLIDWORKS Simulation or SIMULIA?

    November 22, 2021

    Which one do you choose, SOLIDWORKS Simulation or SIMULIA? This is quite a common question when solutions overlap with each other a little bit. But a true answer to this question arises not only from the kind of studies we are able to perform but also from what happens upstream and downstream of the design process.



    November 15, 2021

    SOLIDWORKS 3DEXPERIENCE gives users the opportunity to use advanced designing and collaboration features that positively change the way we create and build. If you are currently a SOLIDWORKS desktop user and considering a move to the cloud, there are differences that you should be aware of. Below we will review some of those differences as well as take a look at the process involved when making the switch.


    What to Do When You’ve Been Invited to a 3DEXPERIENCE Project

    October 11, 2021

    Learning how to use a new and unfamiliar tool can be intimidating. Think back to the days when you first learned how to use a computer. You had to learn how to type on a keyboard, you had to know where your files were stored, which applications performed which tasks, what each button of the mouse actually did, etc. You probably had some guidance along the way too. After a while, using a computer became pretty intuitive, and you were creating spreadsheets and typing up documents like a pro. It's the same with 3DEXPERIENCE. Just like that first computer, it can be daunting when you’re first introduced to the platform. Fortunately, TriMech is here to help and guide you through the steps when you’ve been invited to a 3DEXPERIENCE project.
