Do It Yourself with 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS

We all love making things. Do-it-yourself (DIY) culture goes hand in hand with designers, engineers, and anyone who likes to take on a project deemed difficult for a non-professional. DIY is great for those of us who like a challenge, but it is also a good way to save money: why buy something when you can make it yourself?

With the design and organizational tools offered by 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, do-it-yourself projects are easy. You can use the browser-based tools on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from any device, anywhere, so it is easy to work from home and tinker with both your digital design online and real-world parts in the garage. All you need is an internet connection: you can use the platform on any device, PC, Mac, tablet, or smartphone.

If you want to see 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS and DIY in action, take a look at what Industry Process Consultant John Martorano III made. Part of John’s job is making videos, and he is always trying to up his production quality. He may be an amateur videographer, but he’s an expert 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS user, so he decided to put his skills to the test and create a homemade, DIY camera slider using 3D Creator, a parametric modeling tool in the 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS portfolio, and parts he had lying around his house.

John was able to design and build a camera slider that gives him buttery smooth shots for a fraction of the cost. With the measuring tools, exploded views, and other capabilities available on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, he was able to check and see if the materials he had available would be enough for his DIY camera slider—no second guessing or waste.

With the freedom provided by 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS, both with the multitude of design tools at your disposal and the ability to use digital design tools anywhere at any time, you have a DIYer’s dream at your fingertips.
