Validate Designs for Life with 3DEXPERIENCE Works Simulation

Why is durability important? Usually, when companies think about using simulation, they think about increasing product strength and stiffness while reducing weight. However, this approach neglects a pervasive failure mode that is readily calculated: metal fatigue.  Up to 90% of all in-service mechanical failures are due to fatigue when repeated loading and unloading weakens the […]

Breaking Simulation Barriers for All (Part Two)

In part one of this simulation article, we discussed finite element analysis (FEA) tools. Not only are FEA tools often difficult to learn and use, but in some cases they also require expanded computing resources. However, SOLIDWORKS® delivers a scalable simulation portfolio accessible to everyone, including students, designers, engineers, and high-level FEA specialists. The 3DEXPERIENCE® […]

The Future of Design and Manufacturing

Powerful computers and fast communication networks are more affordable than ever. Cloud-connected tools, such as those offered on the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, enable superior collaboration and the ability to keep everyone on the same page—all in a single environment. We have talked lots about how designers benefit from an integrated environment. But what about manufacturing? It […]

Breaking Simulation Barriers

Simulation can be a key differentiator for companies who develop innovative products. Unfortunately, many finite element analysis (FEA) software products are too difficult to use, unless you are a highly trained expert. Plus, limitations in functionality and computing power have also crippled FEA adoption into mainstream design and engineering departments. A survey done by Tech […]

Top 3 Reasons to Connect SOLIDWORKS to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Managing product changes in an ever-changing work environment can be a challenge for even the nimblest product development teams. Most designers and engineers are familiar (sometimes painfully so) with PDM and PLM solutions that typically leverage onsite servers. When working offsite in this scenario, VPN or Remote Desktop connections are typical, and often fickle and […]

What’s New in Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS

Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS® connects the SOLIDWORKS application to the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, enabling you to securely view, edit, share, and save SOLIDWORKS data to the platform. This environment enables your design team and extended teams (vendors, suppliers, and customers) to connect. Communication becomes second nature. Design reviews are a snap. And data management is […]
