The Design roles on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform combine robust 2D and 3D modeling capabilities – allowing you to collaborate with team members quickly and efficiently. Users can seamlessly switch Design roles without losing design history. The new 3DEXPERIENCE Design roles complement the SOLIDWORKS desktop solution giving users increased functionality.
The 3D Creator role is perfect for designers and engineers who require cloud-based CAD software. Create parametric parts and assemblies with the xDesign application, edit and revise features, bodies, and surfaces with the Unified Property Manager, and collaborate with team members in other locations easily all on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
With the 3D Sculptor role, designers can create complex organic shapes and advanced surfaces using subdivision (Sub-D) modeling with xShape. These complex shapes can be used with imported geometry or existing parametric designs from xDesign, in a unified modeling environment. xShape is cloud-based and integrated on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
xDesign and xShape run within your web browser and on any device - no download required! Simply log into the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, launch an application, and start designing.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a unified interface that allows designers to easily use components to create parts, assemblies, and sub-assemblies. Important design history is automatically captured as you work, allowing you to roll back the design history and make changes when needed.
With the SOLIDWORKS Connector, engineers using SOLIDWORKS desktop can access tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Native SOLIDWORKS files can be uploaded to the platform for review and collaboration, then brought back to SOLIDWORKS through the connector for native design changes. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides your team with a single location to share data and collaborate on projects seamlessly without the need for expensive IT infrastructure.
