    From the makers of SOLIDWORKS, xDesign provides powerful 3D Modeling capabilities in your browser through the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. xDesign is a cloud-based mechanical CAD tool included with SOLIDWORKS Cloud. Here are a few things you need to know about xDesign!


    Creating a Simulation Study in SIMULIA

    January 28, 2022

    The Buckle Group Assembly is a project that our team is working on, and we are collaborating on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to get the job done. The team has gone through an internal discussion on the platform that turned into a poll to see whether there's a need to go ahead and run a few simulations on the buckle and clip. By accessing the 3DEXPERIENCE through a web browser, I can constantly communicate and collaborate with the team using Communities. Check out this blog on how to improve project communication in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The poll is complete and the ‘ayes’ have it. I'm going to go ahead and upload my design data to the platform and run my simulations. I will be able to look at the results and communicate with my team all within the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

    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.
