3DEXPERIENCE Integration Options

You can specify an option for integrating SOLIDWORKS with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

To specify the option, click Tools > Options > 3DEXPERIENCE Integration.

When this option is enabled, SOLIDWORKS documents are updated for compatibility with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform when you open them.

You cannot revert these changes by clearing this option.

You must close all documents before you can select the option.

This option applies to files that are not saved to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Use the 3DEXPERIENCE Integration Rules Editor to specify which parts and assemblies are updated to physical products and representations.

Update SOLIDWORKS files for compatibility with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform Updates SOLIDWORKS custom properties and configuration behavior to align with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

In the ConfigurationManager: CAD Family tab, assemblies and parts appear as CAD family objects. Configurations appear as physical products and representations .

The Configuration Properties and Properties Summary tabs in the Properties dialog box manage custom and configuration-specific properties.

For SOLIDWORKS models that have multiple display states, the active display state is assigned to the physical product. When you insert a component into an assembly, the component uses the display state assigned to the physical product.

3D Interconnect references for assemblies are dissolved and corresponding SOLIDWORKS assembly and part files are created for each component reference. The SOLIDWORKS part files contain the 3D Interconnect feature link to the neutral CAD part file.

When this option is cleared, you can manually update an assembly or part. To update a model, right-click the top item in the FeatureManager design tree, and click Update for 3DEXPERIENCE Compatibility. After you update, the command is no longer available for that model.

Allow a single physical product in new parts and assemblies Uses representations to show different configurations of a model.

Select this option if you do not use unique part numbers for your configurations.

Available when you select Update SOLIDWORKS files for compatibility with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Allow multiple physical products in new parts and assemblies Uses physical products to show different configurations of a model.

Select this option if you use unique part numbers for your configurations.

Available when you select Update SOLIDWORKS files for compatibility with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
