Unlike familiar Windows folder-based systems, files on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform are not organized into folders but into a single collaborative space. There are many benefits to storing data in this manner, including faster retrieval, optimization of resources, and more. However, one of the side-effects is potentially problematic navigation to saved files. We can create a similar organizational scheme for users used to the windows folder storage scheme using bookmarks. This is a handy feature and helps in many ways.
For users using simulation tools in 3DEXPERIENCE, this post will show how to make a tool to access all their saved simulation cases in one place. This widget and several other apps will give users full access to and control over their saved simulation cases.
Creating the Simulation Case Widget follows the following steps.
That's it! There are not many steps here, but getting the search widget set up this way allows users to find simulation cases much faster.
When finished, the widget (shown below) can be resized to fill as much or as little of the tab as needed.
Setting up a tab with this search widget along with the Collaborative Lifecycle, the Simulation Manager, and the Simulation Job Monitor widgets is a good starting place for organizing and locating your simulation data.
