What is 3DEXPERIENCE?
3DEXPERIENCE platform is a collection of cloud-based applications. Just like with a smart phone, there are different applications, included by default or that you can add, which allows you to access certain functionality from your web browser. That means nothing to install or download on your computer or tablet.
What Does the Compass Mean?
The “compass” is really a menu icon that groups all the different available online apps into four categories: 3D Modeling, Social & Collaborative, Simulation and Information Intelligence
Within the platform, you can access all apps by clicking on the different quadrants of the compass icon at any time. You can and even customize a dashboard-space with tabs and widgets that showcase the information that is most important to your team and the project.
How Does This Help Me as a SOLIDWORKS User?
The platform is very powerful and you may not need to use all the tools that it can provide. Below are some practical uses for someone who is new to the platform.
Access Web-Based Design Tools – There are several cloud-based design applications, like SOLIDWORKS xDesign that you can use through your web browser or even a mobile device like a tablet. Since they are cloud-based, you are not limited to a single computer and have the option to design and edit files from multiple devices in multiple locations.
Shared File Library – Search the same set of files as everyone else on your team. All files are at the latest version and access/permissions can be customized. You can connect to this shared library directly via the task pane in your desktop version of SOLIDWORKS, accessing all your design information without leaving the SOLIDWORKS interface.
Direct Access to Manufacturers – Once a design is finished, you can use the “Marketplace Make” application within the platform to access a network of manufacturers in order to get your design created. The platform allows you to connect and get quotes from a variety of different suppliers that can be sorted by process, timeline and estimated cost.
The cloud-based marketplace is a trading platform for digital design, engineering and manufacturing transactions. It helps designers across the world to connect with manufacturers, find standard parts, or hire temporary engineering.
