PREREQUISITES: Some previous SOLIDWORKS experience is preferred.
DESCRIPTION: The 3DEXPERIENCE User Essentials: Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS course is intended as a first pass introduction to the basic functions of the SOLIDWORKS CAD Connector. It focuses on interacting with the Platform through the Connector within the SOLIDWORKS user interface. The CAD Connector may be referred to as Design with SOLIDWORKS or the SOLIDWORKS Add-in. The user will be able to perform basic data driven functions through the Connector interface in the SOLIDWORKS Task Pane.

Self Paced Training
Accessing the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform
This lesson describes the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, logging in, and the user interface. It shows the settings required in desktop SOLIDWORKS to connect to the Platform. Two simple parts, an assembly and assembly drawing are created and saved to the Platform. LifeCycle management tools are shown as well as graphically displaying the parent/child relationships from the SOLIDWORKS Task Pane.
Simulate working in a collaborative environment where multiple users will work concurrently on the same assembly. Each student will be responsible for their own component and making modifications. It discusses the changes to the user interface as components are being locked, modified, released and new revisions made. Many of the concepts presented apply to single-user environments as well as multi-user environments.
Finding Data on the Platform
This lesson illustrates how to find data after storing it to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. The 3DSearch and Bookmark Editor Apps are discussed and demonstrated to find files and to delete files from the Platform.
Learn how to create SOLIDWORKS Configurations to change the size of a component and to change its location in the assembly. It illustrates how SOLIDWORKS Configurations are handled on the Platform. The 3EXPERIENCE Physical Products, Representations and CAD Family file formats are discussed along with the file conversions when saving a SOLIDWORKS file to the Platform.
Bookmarks and Save Options
This lesson continues modifying the assembly to search, find and insert an existing component stored on the Platform. Bookmarks are updated and the local cache is discussed. The options within the Save with Options dialog box are present
In this lesson you will take a brief look at additional apps available in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Tasks are assigned to other users (or to yourself) to help prioritize work, enhance productivity and keep projects on track. The Compare app is launched to graphically highlight the differences between two different revisions of our components and of our assembly.
