The adoption of cloud technology has provided many companies with better ways to communicate and collaborate in a more streamlined manner. This was especially important in 2020 when having a proper remote communication mechanism and data repository became a need rather than a want for many companies in order to adapt. With that said, integration with cloud products whether for file storage, communication, or even running native apps, isn’t for everyone. It’s important to understand why cloud integration may not be appropriate for your team, why some integrations fail and why the Dassault branded 3DEXPERIENCE platform could be a better solution.

Most people think of SOLIDWORKS as a powerful design tool, full of robust features and well-developed workflows that allow engineers and designers to create incredible products. While all these people would be correct, the role of SOLIDWORKS software extends beyond design into other areas of the product lifecycle. One area that SOLIDWORKS excels at is the inspection process.
SOLIDWORKS Composer Check is an add-on module for SOLIDWORKS Composer, a popular tool for creating graphical content from existing 3D CAD models. Composer itself, while part of the SOLIDWORKS family of products, does not require users to also have SOLIDWORKS. In fact, it supports a wide variety of other CAD formats.

So many improvements in SOLIDWORKS 2021, so little time! With the vast amount of upgrades and additions they make each year, it can be overwhelming trying to sift through them all, and often, useful tools and changes are missed. To ensure you are getting the most of your software, we are providing eight on-demand webinars full of demonstrations, updates, explanations and explorations of SOLIDWORKS.
The eDrawings software serves as a communication tool designed to share 3D drawings and 3D models across various teams. The software creates a highly compressed version of these files that are easy to share. Most people know of eDrawings as a standalone tool for viewing SOLIDWORKS files for individuals who do not have SOLIDWORKS. That was true and still is, but incremental improvements have been introduced in the last several iterations that will enhance your experience with the software. There are different versions of the software, including eDrawings Viewer which you can download for free, and eDrawings Professional which is integrates with SOLIDWORKS software products. In this article, we go over some of the most relevant features in the software.
For some, working in AutoCAD feels like a comfortable, well-worn glove. The menu layout, the command line, the color scheme and all the customized buttons and LISP routines you’ve painstakingly created over the years combine to form a cozy, familiar environment you’re more than a little reluctant to leave behind. Let me tell you, I’ve been there. For more than twenty-seven years, I used AutoCAD but it was time to change, so I switched to DraftSight and have never looked back. In this article, I’m going to talk about the features I discovered that made me switch from AutoCAD to DraftSight and why I think you should too.
