Installing 3DEXPERIENCE Apps

If you manage data using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, you can purchase the Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role to connect your Desktop environment to the platform.

The Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role grants access to 3DEXPERIENCE apps, which allow SOLIDWORKS Desktop products to save, search, and manage data stored on the platform.

You install and license these apps from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, not the SOLIDWORKS Installation Manager. For installation instructions, in the SOLIDWORKS Help, see Working with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and 3DEXPERIENCE Apps > Installing the 3DEXPERIENCE Apps.
