Flex Your Design Muscles and Bend the Rules of Design with 3D Sculptor

3D Sculptor offers a variety of specialized functions that let you quickly create highly stylized 3D geometry by letting you push and pull, or sculpt, your geometry to the shape you desire. But there are several tools in 3D Sculptor that you may not know about that help automate and control your geometry more easily. […]



Get It Done Faster: Product Development Productivity Apps

Everyone uses smartphones for way more than merely a telephone or a device for their favorite music playlists. Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS are platforms for a host of useful (and fun) apps. Productivity apps, news apps, social networking apps, and so much more. (At last count, according to Statista, Android has ~2.5 million apps […]



Successfully Manage Entire Engineering Teams from Any Location

We get it. Sometimes you just have to get the job done. And, you probably don’t have the time (or the resources) to start setting up a PDM server and VPNs so you can work from home. So, you copy files to a memory stick and take them home with you—maybe not an ideal set up […]



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 […]



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 […]


Leverage Machine Learning in 3D CAD

3D Creator is a 3D parametric modeling solution built on the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. You can use it as a dedicated tool or to complement your SOLIDWORKS® 3D CAD with flexible design workflows and a seamless interchange of design data. With its single modeling environment for parts and assemblies, 3D Creator lets you focus on […]


3D Sculptor: Reverse Engineering and Sub-D Modeling

You can easily and quickly create and share organic and ergonomic 3D models with 3D Sculptor, but did you know that 3D Sculptor’s xShape app can also help you make quick work of reverse engineering, including transforming tessellated geometry, like the mesh geometry output from topology optimization or generative design, into smooth surfaces? Surfaces from […]


3DEXPERIENCE WORLD 2020: Innovate with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

SOLIDWORKS CEO Gian Paolo Bassi took the stage on day two of #3DXW20 to introduce arguably the most important session at this year’s event: Innovate with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This R&D session is especially critical for getting familiar with the capabilities of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and understanding how entire organizations can leverage 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS today. […]



What is 3D Sculptor? Conceptual Modeling Made Simple

You can quickly create 3D models that are organically and ergonomically-shaped with 3D Sculptor, a browser-based 3D subdivision (sub-D) modeling solution built on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. 3D Sculptor is a lot like clay modeling but on a computer. Most designers typically start with either a sketch, imported image, or actual 3D models as a reference […]
