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 that you can use. The Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role grants access to the Design with SOLIDWORKS app.

With the Design for SOLIDWORKS app, you can:
  • Search for, store, and manage SOLIDWORKS files in collaborative spaces on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform in the cloud.
  • Share SOLIDWORKS files with members of your team and collaborate using product lifecycle management features such as lock and unlock, tags, and revisions.
  • Access services in the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace | PartSupply widget.

The app runs in the 3DEXPERIENCE tab of the SOLIDWORKS Task Pane once you install it and the 3DEXPERIENCE Add-in is loaded.

Additional 3DEXPERIENCE apps available with the Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS role are:
  • Inspect with SOLIDWORKS Inspection
  • Render with SOLIDWORKS Visualize
  • Derived Format Converter

See Render with SOLIDWORKS Visualize and Inspect with SOLIDWORKS Inspection for details.

Details about the Derived Format Converter are available in Derived Format Converter in Dassault Systèmes User Assistance. Access to Dassault Systèmes User Assistance requires 3DEXPERIENCE credentials.
