One of the main functions of a SOLIDWORKS Application Engineer is to teach people how to use the software. As such, our team has had the opportunity to introduce many users to the program. We’ve seen what new designers tend to get stuck on and the topics proven to be most important to them. We’ve compiled many of these findings (along with countless insights from colleagues) into seven specific topics.

Issue Management on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is a central location to create and manage issues. In it, you can create issues and attach models, drawings, or anything else you may store on the platform. You can also assign users to issues, suggest resolutions, add comments, and visualize their history. Check out how Issue Management makes it easier for you to track potential problems and resolutions all in one place.

Xact Metal's technology combines Metal Powder-Bed Fusion, (also known as Selective Laser Melting or Direct Metal Laser Sintering) with their own innovative advances to create a new standard for pricing and performance within additive manufacturing.



For designers and manufacturers, the end goal is usually the same - to make products stronger, cheaper, and lighter and to iterate designs that are easier to manufacture. To do this, many engineers use SOLIDWORKS Simulation software for testing and running analyses as well as realistic rendering software like SOLIDWORKS Visualize to portray real-life products for customer demonstrations and marketing initiatives.
