It’s Here! 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers is Ready for You

We have some great news! The world’s best design tools are now available for your personal projects!  As a hobbyist, you design, create, and share your incredible ideas with others.  With our intuitive cloud-connected Computer Aided Design (CAD) modeling tools that the professionals use, you can make marvelous things your way.


3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers includes 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS. This powerful parametric modeling tool has the user interface and features you know and love. 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS CAD installs locally on your computer and saves your design data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, keeping everything safe and secure on the cloud.

But that’s not all. With 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers, you can design anywhere with our fully online design solutions: 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor. 3D Creator allows you to create precise parametric designs, and 3D Sculptor lets you mold with digital clay while designing online with Sub-D modeling. You can easily switch back and forth between these two different design tools, and connect and share information with 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS. 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor are fully browser-based and can be used anytime, anywhere, on any device—all you need is an internet connection.

Want to connect with other makers? Any maker can join with the six million (and growing!) strong SOLIDWORKS users in our community. We created special online communities just for makers. The Makers Support community can help you with any questions about our digital tools.  If you want to connect and share your designs, ideas, and expertise with other makers from across the globe, the Made in 3D community is the place for you.

Sound fun? Then it’s time to start making! 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers is currently available for $99 a year, with monthly subscription services coming Fall 2021. There are no limits on the things you can create. We are ready for you—let’s start making together!
