Think of 3DDrive as another online storage space such as OneDrive, Dropbox, or Google Drive to keep files organized and shared through folders.
Are there other free cloud storage options? Yes, but having data stored with Dassault Systèmes that understands your content is the differentiator for me.
3DPlay is the universal player and viewer on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, with access through your web broswer. Students can use 3DPlay to view 3D models, image files, PDFs, 2D drawings, Power point presentations, and assembly instruction files. For design reviews, 3DPlay provides the ability to explode and collapse components in the assembly while making hand or typed markups and measurements.... Continued

The 3DEXPERIENCE Add In provides access to cloud storage and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) apps that enable student teams and organizations to control and track large amounts of SOLIDWORKS data from part and assembly files to simulation scenarios and manufacturing documents. With PLM, you can teach good engineering practices to help students not only in school but in future jobs.... Continued
SOLIDWORKS continues to be a necessary job skill for design and engineering professionals and as a result is taught in schools from middle school and high schools, technical institution and college and universities. SOLIDWORKS desktop is connected to cloud... Continued
In my experience, most students do not fully understand that they need to save their assembly document along with the reference components in the same folder (Save vs. Save As). I’ve had numerous students open their assembly or drawing only to ask, “Where are my parts?” This lesson uses Bookmarks and cloud storage to help students understand references and delete them – all within the SOLIDWORKS session....

Students need to understand how to save files, where to save files, how to name files, and create revisions, especially when using assemblies. One of the best simple practices for SOLIDWORKS data is to create bookmarks upon the initial save to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.... Continued
