3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS is the next generation of SOLIDWORKS you can use anywhere.
Login to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform from the web on any PC to download and launch a full SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD installation that saves and manages your CAD data in the cloud, with integrated PLM functionality so that you can easily collaborate with other 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS users.
No fixed licenses, no database servers, no VPNs, just efficient design and engineering from anywhere.
“We chose a 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation solution because it’s cloud-based, which supports our remotely located engineering organization, works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS design data, and incorporates the Abaqus Explicit solver, which is best suited for the types of simulation studies that we need to conduct on our parts, which can involve hyperelasticity, creep, fatigue, and contact.”
– Thomas Morgan
Part and Assembly Modeling
Handle all aspects of your part and assembly modeling and transform ideas and concepts into virtual 3D models.
Create production-ready 2D drawings that are always current and clearly communicate how to manufacture and assemble your designs.
Easily analyze, compare, check and report on your designs.
Design Reuse and Automation
Simplify the reuse of existing design data with search, automation and configuration tools that help you speed up the creation of new designs.
Before going into production, verify in 3D that your parts and assemblies will fit, assemble and operate correctly.
Review your designs for Draft, Undercut, Thickness and Hole Alignments early in the development process to ensure manufacturability.
Set up tasks to automatically update legacy data and take advantage of the newest capabilities in later versions of SOLIDWORKS.
Advanced CAD File Import/Export
Convert incoming CAD data into SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD format and export SOLIDWORKS data to other CAD applications using 30+ translators.
Standard Fastener Library
Use thousands of pre-built, customizable 3D components available in a standard fastener library.
CAD Standards Checking (Design Checker)
Establish design standards and check drawings (or models) against them to create uniform designs and documentation.
Advanced Task Scheduling
Save time setting up and executing advanced SOLIDWORKS tasks such as outputting drawings and exporting neutral CAD formats.
Automated Tolerance Stackup Analysis (TolAnalyst™)
Automatically check the effects of tolerances on parts and assemblies to ensure consistent fit of components and verify tolerancing schemes before manufacturing your designs.
Design for Cost (SOLIDWORKS Costing)
Continuously check your designs against cost targets with automatic cost estimation tools fully integrated within the 3D CAD solution.
Reverse Engineering (ScanTo3D)
Recreate designs with the ability to import, edit, evaluate and create solid geometry from scanned point-cloud and mesh data.
Advanced Photorealistic Rendering
Easily create photographic-quality images from your 3D models early in the design process to get feedback and make informed design decisions.
ECAD/MCAD Collaboration (CircuitWorks)
Share, compare, update, and track electrical design data so users can quickly resolve electrical-mechanical integration and collaboration issues.
Advanced Surface Flattening
Flatten complex, nondevelopable surfaces typically encountered in products made from textiles, like clothing, or sheet metal, like metal stampings.
Pipe and Tube Routing
Simplify the design and documentation of piping and tubing for a wide range of systems and applications, including machinery, skid systems and process plant piping.
Electrical Cable and Wiring Harness Routing
Quickly add cables, wires and harnesses to your design. Create flattened drawing representations of your 3D cables and harnesses with wire lists, connection information and bills of materials.
Rectangular and Other Section Routing
Route rectangular and round sections that include ducting, cable trays, conveyors, material handling chutes and other systems.
Time-Based Motion Analysis
Realistically visualize your product moving throughout its operational cycle world, measure the forces and loads on your design, and use the data to correctly size motors and ensure product performance, quality and safety.
Linear Static Analysis for Parts and Assemblies
Calculate the stresses and deformations of geometry using Finite Element Analysis (FEA) methods, and running linear stress analysis to determine the response of parts and assemblies.
Parametric Modeling in the Cloud
Create, review and evaluate 3D models through an intuitive parametric modeling solution that interacts seamlessly with the 3D CAD solution.
Subdivision Modeling in the Cloud
Create organic shapes quickly and easily with an intuitive modeling solution that interacts seamlessly with the 3D CAD solution.
Data Access and Management in the Cloud
Store, share, access and manage the latest product design information from a centralized, secure location.
Product Lifecycle Management in the Cloud
Manage the lifecycle of any type of content, such as CAD files, simulation models and documentation, across disciplines and CAD solutions. Track issues, changes and routes, and reduce conflicting edits from multiple contributors with revision control.
Collaboration in the Cloud
Collaborate in real time using configurable dashboards, social communities, Kanban-style task management, activity streams, persistent chat and video calls. Easily search, visualize, explore and mark up SOLIDWORKS and other files directly in your browser.
Governance in the Cloud
Monitor license usage, manage members, and assign and remove licenses from a single administrative dashboard, lowering administrative overhead. Easily stay up-to-date and benefit from the latest enhancements.
Access industrial service providers online, download 3D components from supplier catalogs, and find engineering help for your most challenging design tasks.
