Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 3: 3D Creator with 3DP Prototyping

    September 3, 2021

    As we move further into our 3DEXPERIENCE design process for our circular saw project, we are now going to work with the mechanical design using xDesign. This 3DEXPERIENCE application (xApp) is a 3-dimensional parametric design tool that operates under the 3D Creator Role in the platform. Since the xApps don’t care what operating system is being used because they are cloud-powered, today’s walk-through will be done using a Macbook Pro. Traditional CAD environments require Windows as the operating system as most continue to use it. However, using this platform we are expanding our options and can use a number of operating systems to design, share and collaborate amongst our team.


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 2: Project Planner

    September 2, 2021

    The success of any project starts with a good plan and a team that understands what that plan is. In this second part of our cloud-based design series, we will cover how the Project Planning application on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can assist us in ensuring the success of our projects through better data visibility, improved collaboration and purpose-built project management applications. With the right tools, your team can collaborate securely with a task-specific file repository, activity stream, real-time summary charts, real-time notifications, a schedule to help meet project constraints and resources and much more!


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 1: Kickoff with SWYM

    September 1, 2021

    The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is a place where everyone on your team can collaborate for successful design results. To help demonstrate this, we are going to walk you through a  project where we will make various changes to a design and package it up to show stakeholders. Today, we are kicking it off by setting up our SWYM (Say What You Mean) Communities.

    Think of a SWYM community as a message or project board. It is a place where the entire team, from concept to final production, can communicate on a project. Easily align sales, marketing, engineering, production, shipping, all to a common goal. Since SWYM communities are project boards within the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, they are geared toward a design environment. This makes them better suited as project boards than other tools available. Let’s get started!


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Collaborative Project Series

    September 1, 2021

    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.

    In this multi-part video series, we will be walking you through the design completion and stake-holder presentation of a circular saw prototype using only a web browser and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This will give you a great idea of how this tool can empower you and your team to create using a real-time ecosystem that connects people, ideas and data.

    5 Advantages of 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS over Online Licensing

    August 24, 2021

    Last month, SOLIDWORKS announced the phasing out of online licensing. SOLIDWORKS 2022 will not offer this licensing methodology, and it will stop working for prior versions in February of 2022. However, this change does not mean that the benefits of using SOLIDWORKS anywhere have to be abandoned! We have a solution to this with 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS.

    How to Leverage Industry 4.0: Big Data

    August 16, 2021

    Big data is the foundation of Industry 4.0 that enables factories and businesses to compete globally. In this global competition, big data could be thought of as the literal field in which we all play. It’s the grass in the field, the ice on the rink, the hardwood on the court. It’s the foundation. So, if you are looking to transform your business, big data is a great place to start!
