Intelligent Communication

Communicating design information is a key part of any workflow, and the SOLIDWORKS suite of products has three specialized tools to enable Intelligent Communication: SOLIDWORKS Composer for technical illustrations. SOLIDWORKS MBD for product manufacturing information, and SOLIDWORKS Visualize for photo quality renderings. Let’s check out some of the key enhancements to each of these products […]

Getting to Know Collaborative Industry Innovator

Most companies will agree that it is a struggle to keep everyone on the same page—especially in product development. Sharing data across departments and keeping it in sync is difficult and expensive. The Collaborative Industry Innovator role, on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, enables you to manage product design data and documents on the cloud in a […]

Make it Easier to Work as a Team – Collaborative Business Innovator

Irregular and inconsistent communication is usually the norm for most companies. It is entirely natural for each department to discuss issues only among themselves. Even within a single department such as engineering, sharing information, getting feedback, and keeping everyone up to date, can be a pain and prone to misunderstanding. Until now. The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform […]


Remote Working with SOLIDWORKS PDM

Introduction & Background SOLIDWORKS PDM is a Server/Client application. All PDM clients must communicate with the PDM server over a network connection. Additionally, the PDM clients must be able to communicate with server-based SOLIDWORKS SolidNetWork License (SNL) Manager. Usually, all SOLIDWORKS PDM servers and clients are on a company’s ‘Local Area Network’ (LAN), so access […]

Contact Visualization Plot is now available to all SOLIDWORKS Simulation users

What is the Contact Visualization Plot? If you have not used the Contact Visualization Plot, then you should! It is a useful tool that allows you to quickly and easily set-up large assemblies with lots of contact while avoiding common contact set-up errors. When you import an assembly into SOLIDWORKS Simulation, by default, the software […]


Project Management on the Cloud for Everyone

All project managers do is boss people around and waste time in meetings. This stereotype is common at some companies. Ask a typical design team member what a project manager does, and they probably won’t be able to tell you exactly. They don’t see how their tasks relate to other deliverables. The Project Planner role on […]

What’s New in SOLIDWORKS Visualize 2020

SOLIDWORKS® Visualize is truly a timesaver. Engineers and designers love it because Visualize enables all stakeholders, especially executives, marketing, and other non-engineering personnel, to get a crystal-clear idea early in the design process of how the final product will look. Along with helping to make top-level product development decisions easier and earlier in the process, […]
