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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

From InFlow Technology: The Future of PLM and Beyond – SOLIDWORKS World 2018 Recap

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

At SOLIDWORKS World 2012 in San Diego, California, Vice Chairman and CEO of Dassault Systems, Bernard Charles, introduced the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to the SOLIDWORKS community. Bernard explained the concept as “beyond PLM” connecting companies, users, and processes. The idea was introduced as a simple compass that represented the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Over the next 6 years, the SOLIDWORKS community has been slowly introduced to details about the platform, further explaining the vision of the 3DEXPERIENCE. This year at SOLIDOWKRS World 2018 […]
