The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and its portfolio of applications and online services serve as a hub for all your product development needs with customizable content tailored to your organization's specific needs. SOLIDWORKS Customers on an active Subscription are eligible for an enhancement that will help to not only push those boundaries, but improve the way they design, build and market their products.

Enable your team to collaborate online quickly and easily so you can share content directly with members of your organization throughout the design process in real-time.

Key Features of Social Collaboration Services Include

The Most Relevant Information All in One Location

Dashboards are the cornerstone of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, allowing you to quickly share metrics with your executives and customers. Choose a wide variety of apps to tailor the experience and display the information that is most relevant to you and your organization in one convenient location. Update the whole project team by sharing any type of media, including images, videos and any CAD files.

Intelligently Store Engineering Content

Store everything in the cloud with a storage solution that understands the relationships between the different files you create. From within the dashboard app, you can easily add, access and share your engineering content as desired. Visualize, annotate, mark-up and comment on any files, and share them directly with anyone involved in your project.

Collaborate Through Communities

Build communities with 3DSWYM to share and collaborate on ideas and information for any project. Chosen team members can easily share information just as they would on any social platform. Your team can see your social posts and engage with your ideas and the design process in real-time, enabling a truly collaborative experience. Meanwhile, changes to the engineering files are updated through 3DDrive and your interactive content shared through the 3DPlay app is always up to date.

Connect to SOLIDWORKS Desktop

Connect your traditional desktop experience with SOLIDWORKS to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Integrated directly into SOLIDWORKS, the 3DEXPERIENCE Desktop connector allows you to access all of your information from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform right from within SOLIDWORKS. This workflow allows you to combine the power of SOLIDWORKS to quickly create and edit your engineering designs, with the collaborative features of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
