Designing for Today: SOLIDWORKS Cloud - Drafter

    February 28, 2022

    In this blog, we will be taking a look at Drawings on SOLIDWORKS Cloud. Creating drawings with SOLIDWORKS Cloud is the only portion that is hybrid in its approach. Drawings are created through the Drafter role. The Drafter role requires the installation of an application on the local machine called “Drawings". This application runs locally and saves the data to the cloud automatically.

    Drawing creation is the only non-browser-based application that still requires a Windows machine and a local installation. With that said, we are referring to traditional 2D detailed drawings. For 3D model-based drawings, we have Product Document Creator which is browser-based and more information can be found in this blog.

    3DEXPERIENCE World 2022 Recap

    February 23, 2022

    That's a wrap! 3DEXPERIENCE World was originally planned as a hybrid event with both in-person and virtual sessions streaming live from Atlanta, GA. There are many reasons why people can’t attend in-person such as travel restrictions, not meeting the venue requirements or limited funds for the trip. A hybrid event gives attendees the flexibility to design an event experience that suits their individual needs. As I mentioned, that was the original plan. Unfortunately, with rising concerns of COVID, the in-person portion of the event was cancelled. This disappointed a lot of people including myself. I was looking forward to the normal in-person experience at 3DEXPERIENCE World.    


    Designing for Today: Manufacturing Definition Creator

    February 21, 2022

    If you have been following along with this series so far, you’ve seen some of the powerful design tools included with SOLIDWORKS Cloud. Additionally, if you read through the last post in this series, you would have seen me creating a model on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform using tools to create structural members from standard or custom profiles.

    Today, we’re going to use the same set of tools from SOLIDWORKS Cloud except for this time we’ll see how we can add our Product Manufacturing Information (PMI) directly to a 3D model.


    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 Structure Creator

    February 14, 2022

    One of the best parts of the SOLIDWORKS Cloud offer is that it allows me to take all the tools I know and love from desktop SOLIDWORKS and puts them on the 3DExperience Platform. Not only does this help me stay connected to my team and keep them updated on my tasks but it also allows me to let the creative juices flow and create designs from anywhere I can access an internet browser. No matter where I am, I’ll be able to stay informed on the design process and make sure my work stays current with the rest of my team.

    Designing for Today: 3D SheetMetal Creator

    February 7, 2022

    SOLIDWORKS Cloud offers a number of browser-based tools to help in the design process. One of those tools is 3D SheetMetal Creator. In this tool is an app called xSheetMetal. This app offers unique features to sheet metal part creation in the browser environment shared with xDesign. This will allow the creation of a bent sheet metal part and the corresponding flat pattern within the same easy-to-use interface.
