Accessing and Using Your Data in the Cloud with Bookmarks for 3DEXPERIENCE

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Storing data on the cloud is one of the most sought-after features organizations are looking for. We see the ability to access, manage, and share data through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is streamlining workflows and reducing overhead for our customers. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform stores data in a collaborative space A collaborative space is your data vault. Collaborative spaces can contain and control thousands upon thousands of files. Because of how they handle data, they are not organized with a folder structure […]

Back to the basics: Farming Intelligence on the 3D Experience Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

This blog is a follow up to my previous blog on navigating the 3D Experience Platform. You can find that blog linked here. In the previous blog we used the analogy of being a primitive hunter gatherer to the process of beginning work with the 3D Experience Platform. We looked at several ways to find and organize data on the platform, but we only made it so far. To carry on with my analogy, we have only barely made it […]

Currently the xShape Sub-Divisional modeling app on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform does not have a command to Mirror Body.  This is a highly requested item, and hopefully is in the updates coming this year.  Until then however, you can still get the same results by using this workaround to mirror a body.  1.       Create the body you want to mirror  2.       Create a new Ordered Geometric Set  3.       Copy and Paste the original sub divisional body into the Ordered Geometrical Set […]

Common Workflows for Getting SOLIDWORKS Geometry INTO the 3DEXPERIENCE “xApps”

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In the 3DExperience Platform, when we speak of an “xApp” we are referring to the xDesign, xShape, xSheetmetal apps (and more coming all the time) that run in a browser and are available anywhere, anytime, on any device. Today I am going to discuss some different workflows of getting CAD data into the 3DExperience “xApps”. Which method is the “best” all depends on what you need to do with it. Sometimes you may just be wanting to “build around” an […]

Back to the basics: Hunting and Gathering on the 3D Experience Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Imagine the most primitive state of humankind. Most will probably come up with the hunter-gatherers prevalent before the advent of cities and agriculture. I’m no anthropologist by any means, but I feel like the people we refer to as “hunter gatherers” behaved as they did because they were unaware of many of the mechanics of how the world around them worked. To them it was easier to just grab what they could directly consume and move on. Now, for the […]

Viewing (and MORE) with 3DPlay in 3DEXPERIENCE

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

One of the great, easy to use tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is 3DPlay. 3DPlay is used to view data on the platform but it can also do a lot more! Everyone who has the role of Collaborative Business Innovator, the base role that you need to gain access to the platform, has access to the 3DPlay app. It is accessed through the compass (like all apps) and can be added as a widget to any tab on your dashboard.  […]
