Creating and Using User Groups on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Creating User Groups on your 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is something you can do to save a lot of time when making assignments. First let’s take a look at creating a User Group. If you are a platform administrator, you will have access to an app from the compass called User Groups.  The easiest way to find it (or any role/app) is to search for it. Once you have launched the app you can hit the new group button to create a […]

How to Automate Bolted Connections in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform!

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is an extensive solution platform with multiple roles and software applications that can be a great compliment to SOLIDWORKS desktop. Among the many great applications on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, are the simulation roles: Structural Performance Engineer (SFO) and Structural Mechanics Engineer (SSU). Both simulation roles contain numerous simulation applications to solve advanced Finite Element Analysis (FEA) problems. In today’s blog I am going to show some automated meshing techniques on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform that make applying connections very easy! […]

Top 5 Tasks with Collaborative Business Innovator

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

You’re in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for the first time and you open up the compass. As you look around, you notice “My Roles” along the left. So, you expand it. Inside, there is this role that says “Collaborative Business Innovator”. Naturally, you’re curious and click that as well. Suddenly, you see that looks like the image on the left. “Okay, but what can I do with this?” That’s what we’ll talk about today. Let’s go through the top 5 tasks […]

SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS- Import via SOLIDWORKS Connector

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Lately, many of my blogs have talked about the power that SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS adds to the SOLIDWORKS Simulation suite. Whether it’s advanced FEA, plastic injection simulation, or fluid dynamics, there is almost certainly a role on the platform that can help any engineer with complex simulations. I haven’t written a lot about the link that exists between the geometry in SOLIDWORKS, and the new 3D Experience environment. So today, I’d like to discuss the first of two methods for […]

Overview 3DEXPERIENCE has two ways to load existing SOLIDWORKS data into a cloud tenant. Both methods move only the latest version of files. This means that if you add files to your cloud tenant, they will be set as the systems’ initial revision value. Each method has their pros and cons, but these options are: Bulk load EDAT FTK (File based Transfer) There are some similarities between the tools in what they do and how they do it. However, in […]

Upload SOLIDWORKS Files to 3DEXPERIENCE – EDAT FTK

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Overview 3DEXPERIENCE has two ways to upload existing SOLIDWORKS files into a cloud tenant. Both solutions do latest version of file only, so you won’t have version history for the initially migrated data. Instead, you’ll have every file set as the system’s initial revision, typically A. Now those two methods I mentioned a second ago are as follows: Bulk load tool EDAT FTK (File based Transfer) Both processes have some similarities in what they do and how they do it. […]

SOLIDWORKS just announced that the Beta version of SOLIDWORKS 2022 is scheduled to go live near the end of June. Like in previous years, SOLIDWORKS will have a Beta program that will allow users to test the new software. What is the SOLIDWORKS Beta Program? Participating in the in the Beta program is more than just taking the next release of SOLIDWORKS for a test drive. It is about connecting with the BETA community, interacting with the SOLIDWORKS R & […]

Why SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS? 3D Experience Simulation and SPH Elements

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

There are many reasons businesses have been shifting to the cloud over the last few years; flexible licensing schemes, data backups & security, downsizing internal IT overhead, the list goes on. All sorts of industries are moving in that direction, and design verification and simulation are no exceptions. Cloud based simulation benefits from all the items listed above, and more. Today, I would like to cover a feature that differentiates SIMULIA for SOLIDWORKS on the 3D Experience Platform from SOLIDWORKS […]

Saving Templates to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Utilizing approved templates can standardize the CAD information your users create. For organizations that are implementing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, templates can be saved and shared through the organization’s 3DEXPERIENCE tenant. Both SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS can create and access templates in the cloud, but they follow different workflows. On the organization’s cloud tenant, templates are saved to the Common Space. The Common Space is the default data vault on an organization’s tenant, and as such, its contents are available to […]
