Collaborating on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform using the 3DPLAY App

The 3DPlay App on 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a powerful tool that enables collaboration of many different disciplines. One of them is the ability to share the simulation results from Structural Simulation Engineer (SSE). This is very similar to eDrawings in SOLIDWORKS where the simulation results can be shared with someone who may not have the tools or the software but is still an integral part of a design project. On my 3DEXPERIENCE Dashboard, I can simply drag and drop the analysis model from my shared location called Collaborative Space onto my 3DPlay App and start sharing the analysis results with team members.

Here is a video showing 3DPlay in action, demonstrating some really cool and salient features of this App. I am now a big fan of what this App can do!

PRO TIP: 3DPlay can display the results history of the analysis result from Structural Simulation Engineer. By default, five frames are automatically stored for animation purposes. However, if you want more granularity in your 3DPlay results animation, you can use the “Experience Content.” In Structural Simulation Engineer, under the Action bar, select “Visualization,” then “Experience Content.” In the dialog box that opens up, you can select the results type and the number of frames desired. Make sure you check the box against the result type in the Animate column as shown below.
