Integrating Next-Generation Technology: 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace

Note: This is part five of a five-part series on integrating next generation technologies into your design workflow. Click the links to read parts onetwo, three, and four

Global manufacturing demand for both traditional as well as new technologies such as Additive Manufacturing (AM) is on the rise. Companies are accelerating their product lifecycle processes rapidly. Supply chains are being transformed to accommodate customer needs instantaneously. To keep up with this disruptive change, online service bureaus are providing a seamless way to go straight from design to production parts.

In this last installment of this Design to Analyst Process Solutions blog series, we will discuss the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace, an online service tool that provides a platform for on-demand manufacturing and intelligent part sourcing. This tool is accessible from within the SOLIDWORKS environment as shown below.

As a SOLIDWORKS user, you can use the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace add-in to:

  1.        Upload your design
  2.        Optimize / Customize it LIVE
  3.        Choose a manufacturing process and manufacturing partner
  4.        Request and receive a quote
  5.        Approve and track
  6.        Receive your custom parts

You can now collaborate with leading digital manufacturers worldwide with this single one-stop shop instead of jumping across multiple web sites to get your parts made!
