Increasingly there is a need to be armed with resources and strategies that enable us to work from anywhere and/or any device. Most designers and engineers are familiar with software solutions that typically access servers at their physical location. When the need arises to work away from your workplace VPN or Remote Desktop seem to be gaining ground. However, these solutions often become fickle and slow, proving cumbersome to use. With the Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS®. you can connect your application SOLIDWORKS to the platform 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud-based, so data management functionality is already integrated into the workflow.

#1: Work anywhere, from any device.

It's critical to maintain the efficiency of your business, even when resources are in different workplaces. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform not only accommodates all your team's project work, but also allows customers, suppliers and managers to have secure access to the data they need.

Collaboration between the whole team on a single platform is becoming increasingly necessary, with the possibility of document sharing and exchange of ideas in real time. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows the review of 3D models from any device, helping to streamline processes and product development times. Thus, the design can be delivered clearly and efficiently to colleagues or suppliers through the platform's virtual product development environment.

#2: Integrated Data Management

Connecting to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform increases your ability to make informed decisions faster by benefiting from all the data you need in real time. Advanced data management capabilities such as revision control, product maturity, permissions management and more are benefits of integrating SOLIDWORKS with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This platform also provides a technology infrastructure to manage product design data and documents in SOLIDWORKS directly connected to the Cloud.

#3: Ease of access and use

O Collaborative Designer allows you to manage and share data SOLIDWORKS securely, as well as access the information you need from anywhere with an internet connection. All stakeholders are instantly updated with immediate access to project status anytime, anywhere.

Lack of server space, cooling issues, network infrastructure, backups or reliance on dedicated internal services are no longer a problem. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform concentrates all information, project data and design data in a single Cloud environment, contributing to a more effective and efficient corporate collaboration. In addition, software updates such as service packs and downloads occur automatically.

When using the Collaborative Designer connected to the platform 3DEXPERIENCE designers can continue their work in SOLIDWORKS from any location, while design data becomes part of a unified product definition, enabling seamless use with input from all necessary stakeholders.

Working together has never been easier

A 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables teams to streamline their communication flow and improve productivity. All platform applications required for product design are directly available within the environment SOLIDWORKS. Multiple teams can work on a product definition in a simultaneous, secure, real-time computing ecosystem.
