3D Designer for education includes several design tools: browser-based 3D Creator, 3D Sculptor, and 3D SheetMetal Creator. Plus, it includes Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS, which enables you to connect SOLIDWORKS® to the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE® platform. When connected, you can easily upload your SOLIDWORKS models to the platform and can leverage various design tools, manage team projects, and plan key milestones.
Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS eliminates the need for clunky connection tools such as VPN or Remote Desktop by linking directly to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the cloud. Let’s explore three reasons why you should take a closer look at 3D Designer for education.
#1: Teaching and Learning Anywhere
Educators must maintain efficiencies even when students reside in multiple locations. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform accommodates all design students while allowing you secure access to their projects from any location or device.
Students connect in a single online environment where collaboration is a snap. The platform enables collaborative reviews of 3D models, helping you to interact with students more naturally. Automatically track and search communication threads, eliminating the need to sift through endless emails.
#2: Data Management Built In
Managing updates is an integral part of designing and engineering products, whether for significant design issues or minor changes. Connecting to the platform enhances your ability to make informed decisions faster by leveraging real-time data. With all data in the same place, you and your students are automatically in sync on project design revisions.
Advanced data management capabilities such as revision control, product maturity, and permission management are automatically enabled when you make design changes on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, providing the technology infrastructure to manage project design data and documents efficiently.
#3: IT Overhead Minimized
With the browser-based apps of 3D Designer for education and pure cloud 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Collaborative Designer enables you to securely view, manage, and share SOLIDWORKS data and access it from any location with an internet connection. Students and teachers no longer need CAD-configured laptops or workstations. With all the data in the cloud, any device can access school projects, and projects are instantaneously updated, so teachers have real-time access to student progress—anytime.
Your school’s IT team no longer needs to worry about server space, physical protection, or other related concerns. Network infrastructure, storage, backups, and disaster recovery plans are simpler. Plus, software updates, such as upgrades, service packs, and downloads happen automatically.
Learning Together Made Easier
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables teachers and students to connect in a unified environment where all project work happens. Virtually eliminate time, location, and device constraints to facilitate optimal learning. What’s more, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables everyone to remain in sync on all project work.
