    Solving Communication Breakdown - Part Two: Cloud Power

    January 21, 2020

    What if you, your team and your clients had instant access to all aspects of your product in a single location? How about having an environment where everyone could be included in brainstorming sessions, provide and receive constructive criticism, effectively manage people and resources and create and validate innovative products? What if you could offer more than just a conference call and a SharePoint site so that no one was ever left out, whether they’re at their desk or in the field? Enabling internal and external users to come together in real-time for the product’s entire life cycle is probably the most significant step in resolving breaks in communication and this is possible by leveraging cloud technology.

    3DEXPERIENCE Enables Faster Collaboration for Eviation Aircraft

    November 14, 2019

    This week's Product Story showcases Eviation Aircraft and their use of 3DEXPERIENCE for faster collaboration in the Cloud. 

    Eviation Aircraft uses 3DEXPERIENCE through the Cloud to create the world's first all-electric regional commuter aircraft Aviation Alice. Aviation Alice is a plane that holds nine passengers and crew, can travel up to 1000 kilometers per charge, has an all-electric battery and is capable of speeds around 450 kilometers an hour and 40 knots at 10,000 feet. Since they are new to the aviation industry, they wanted to differentiate themselves by by using a holistic approach to development. This was built from the ground up to the electric aircraft.

    Using Simulia Structural Simulation Engineer to Run a Snap Fit Analysis

    July 8, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS Simulation is one of the leading design analysis tools that brings the power of simulation into the SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD environment, to conduct design validation early in the design process. Ease of use and tight integration within CAD enables designers and engineers to run different types of simulation from linear static to nonlinear static to dynamic analyses. However, even with its extensive capabilities, there are situations where SOLIDWORKS Simulation needs a little extra help. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at one of these situations, running a snap fit analysis and will walk through assisting SOLIDWORKS Simulation with Simulia Structural Simulation Engineer (SSE).

    Introduction to SOLIDWORKS xShape

    June 17, 2019

    Over the years, I’ve dabbled in many surface editors. I have spent too many hours creating human faces, cars and other complex geometries only to have the most extravagant shapes not make the jump to hyperspace from surfaces to solids willingly. Perhaps, you know from experience, the let-down in creating something with surfaces that looks great in CAD, only to fumble into getting in a solid form so it can be 3D printed.

    Top 5 Apps Included in 3DEXPERIENCE

    March 25, 2019

    At its core, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a collection of cloud-based software applications for 3D design, analysis, simulation and communication. It allows team members to be in the same environment looking at the same data and the same files in order to make changes and comments in real time. Just like with a smartphone, there are different applications available for the platform to customize the experience for your specific project needs. And since the platform is cloud-based, all of what we are about to talk about is accessible through a web browser, not a dedicated computer.

    Designing and Printing With xDesign: Part Two

    March 19, 2019

    In our previous blog, we discussed my need to design a case for my Raspberry Pi, and why I chose SOLIDWORKS xDesign to do it. In part two of this series, I will look at one of the options for creating my design: FDM 3D printing. The entire process from start to finish was easier than you may think.

    Designing and Printing With xDesign: Part One

    March 18, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS xDesign is a cloud-based application that is part of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. One of the most convenient and coolest features is the ability to model from any place with an internet connection. I recently needed to design and create a case for my new Raspberry Pi circuit board and decided to use xDesign to do it, which saved me a lot of time and effort.

    Can I Run SOLIDWORKS On A Mac?

    March 11, 2019

    Yes, but not really. Here's how.

    "Can SOLIDWORKS run on a Mac?" is a question we get all the time. Unfortunately, the answer is no, it does not run natively on a Mac. It can only be installed on a Windows environment. So, the question then becomes "How can I run SOLIDWORKS on a Mac and how well does it perform?" Let's talk about how to get SOLIDWORKS running on your Mac and what you can expect in terms of performance with this kind of set up.

    An Introduction to SOLIDWORKS xDesign

    February 14, 2019

    SOLIDWORKS xDesign is a new way of looking at CAD design. It is one of the cloud-based CAD applications that are part of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Just by being part of the platform allows this software to do some pretty interesting things that you can’t do with traditional SOLIDWORKS alone.
