While switching 3D software platforms may seem like a daunting task, sticking with an existing platform for sake of ease can cost a company time, money and important resources. If you’ve recently thought about switching platforms, think it may make sense for your company in the future or are not completely satisfied with your current workflow, join us as we take a look at the top 5 reasons to make the switch to SOLIDWORKS.

One benefit of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is that new features are constantly added to the software and platform. So far this year, we’ve had two releases; one in April with "R2021x" and its first Functional Delivery (back in the early versions of SOLIDWORKS we called these Super Service Packs) over the July 4th weekend. The Functional Deliveries update brought significant improvements for a better user experience. In this article, I list and describe my top 11 favorite features.
There are many behind the scenes tools that make a company become and continue to be successful. Much like the more visible people and obvious products, a software running backstage is extremely important and can have significant impacts on a company’s bottom line at best, and its livelihood at worse. If you’re a manufacturing company or one which provides supply chain services, then you have a system in place to serve as the backbone of your business that connects all the various business units. But instead of separate disconnected systems, today’s best in class companies opt for one system that connects all the separate business units, DELMIAWORKS.
DELMIAWORKS is a Manufacturing Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system that is designed specifically for the factory setting to streamline the process and gain visibility and control from end-to-end. Some of the top industries including Aerospace, Assembly, Automotive, Food and Beverage and even Packaging are utilizing it to have a single platform to integrate inventory management, procurement, planning, sales, CRM, shipping, production, financing and even business intelligence. Let's take a deeper dive into each industry to see how they take advantage of DELMIAWORKS.
As the workplace transitions to a remote setting naturally, or out of necessity, being connected with your team is more important than ever. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a great solution for not only the CAD users on your team, but everyone that contributes to the project during its lifecycle. The platform allows global teams to collaborate on projects together seamlessly from any device connected to the internet, thereby eliminating the need for dedicated physical workstations and location dependence in most cases. Being able to leverage skills and knowledge, regardless of where they are and what time zone they are in, gives your project the resource potential of a true 24-hour global workforce.
Now more than ever, design teams are looking for the best ways to stay connected to ensure seamless interactions between different areas of their organization. From idea creation and product design to social collaboration and data management, there are many software solutions that could be used in each step of the process. But with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, all the best tools are incorporated in one interconnected, cloud-based ecosystem.
Typically, the downfall when working with a group is a lack of communication between the different members or even various departments. Throughout this series, we have provided you with ideas and tools that could help you improve your team’s communication. Whether through cloud-based solutions or data management software, there’s a wide variety of solutions to ensure that your team is communicating well throughout the product lifecycle. In this article of our series, we are going to explore different chat tools, their capabilities and how they can help your teams stay connected.
Today, with the right setup, working away from the office can be very effective. In a previous article, we showed you how to set up your SOLIDWORKS license if you need to access it remotely. Now that you know how to access SOLIDWORKS, how about we give you some tips on how to manage data and file information remotely?

“So… should I show the customer ‘MasterAssembly-new-latest-USETHIS-keep’ or ‘MasterAssembly-final-DONOTDELETE-approved-updated’?” Thanks to data management tools like SOLIDWORKS PDM, these phrases in the office are a thing of the past. With SOLIDWORKS PDM, maintaining a file’s history and accessing the latest revision is second nature. Unfortunately, you’d need to be tethered to the PDM Vault to account for the latest updates, even with remote access. You know what would be even better for universal version control, especially when needing to show the latest file version on the fly? Taking the file confidence of PDM and wrapping it into an intuitive social platform, like 3DEXPERIENCE ENOVIA accessible anywhere you’re connected to the Internet.
In this modern digital age, working from home and ensuring that business continues (mostly) as usual is not difficult. For those of us that work with SOLIDWORKS, that means bringing our work laptops home, or installing the application on a home computer. In today’s article, I’ll explain the different ways you can use your SOLIDWORKS license from home.
The cloud is very much a commodity these days. For years, we have been using the cloud to store files that are safe from local penetration (like fires, water damage, theft, etc.), take up less space (rather than piles and piles of paper) and are easier to find (using a simple search command rather than routing through a filing cabinet). However, it is important to understand that the cloud is so much more than just a glorified external hard drive. Now, project teams can immerse themselves in cloud-based tools and applications, not just for storage, but for creation. Just like the cloud offers many benefits over a traditional file storage process, the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform by Dassault Systèmes offers a true start-to-finish design experience that anyone can leverage to be more efficient. You just need to know how to use the software to fit your role in the project.
In this digital age, customers are more informed about the products they buy than ever before, resulting in the desire for a more memorable experience. Everything from the opening of the packaging, to where suppliers source their materials and even a sustainable disposal plan, are now factors that impact consumer decisions. Consumers not only want to be sold to, but they want to influence their manufacturers to help shape their own experience.
