Working with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and 3DEXPERIENCE Apps

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a business experience platform that provides product lifecycle management capabilities. It enables you to collaborate with team members to design products and bring them to final release.

Your roles determine which 3DEXPERIENCE apps and services you can use. Mechanical designers on collaborative teams use the Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role.

With the Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role, you can:
  • Search for, store, and manage files in collaborative spaces on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in the cloud.
  • Share files with members of your team and collaborate using product lifecycle management features such as lock and unlock, tags, and revisions.
  • Access additional apps and services in the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace.
The following 3DEXPERIENCE apps are available with the Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role:
  • Design with SOLIDWORKS
  • Render with SOLIDWORKS Visualize
  • Derived Format Converter (Optional)

The apps run inside SOLIDWORKS and SOLIDWORKS Visualize.

Details about Render with SOLIDWORKS Visualize is available in Working with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

Details about the Derived Format Converter are available in Derived Format Converter.
