Collaborating on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform using the 3DPLAY App

The 3DPlay App on 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a powerful tool that enables collaboration of many different disciplines. One of them is the ability to share the simulation results from Structural Simulation Engineer (SSE). This is very similar to eDrawings in SOLIDWORKS where the simulation results can be shared with someone who may not have the […]



Welcome to the 3DEXPERIENCE Certification Center

In 1998 a project was set in motion at SOLIDWORKS to figure out how to gage the success of the newly launched training program for customers. Late that year the Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP) exam was born. For nearly eight years, the CSWP exam was an eight-hour long exam that could only be taken at […]
