Happy New Year! As my first post of 2024, I am excited to announce Dassault Systèmes, SOLIDWORKS, and 3DEXPERIENCE EDU sponsorship, to all FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC) teams, with FREE software and student community support. Kickoff CRESCENDOSM presented by Haas,... Continued
In the Dassault Systemes family, we have free student software tools – no matter what your grade level. You may use SOLIDWORKS or you have no software experience. You may be an engineer or an artist. You may attend university... Continued
Cornell Hyperloop is an engineering student project team that designs and builds a hyperloop pod, a novel form of transportation in which pods are sent through vacuum-sealed tubes at hundreds of miles per hour. This year, the Cornell Hyperloop team... Continued
The future of innovation begins with nurturing young minds, and we are thrilled to share some exciting news from Ahmed Abdelnaser, SOLIDWORKS User Group (SWUG) Committee Leader for Africa, the Middle East and North Africa. SOLIDWORKS is embarking on a... Continued
Next month, thousands will participate in the ancient Hindu festival of Chhath Pooja or Chhath Puja. The festival honors Surya, the Sun God and his wife Usha (Chhathi Maiya). The festival is celebrated in the Indian states of Bihar, Uttar... Continued
Learn the proper workflow to upload a SOLIDWORKS part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and perform a Simulation study using the Structural Model Creation App. Create a Finite Element Model (FEM) from the Sheet Metal part. Apply boundary conditions and load. Create 3 Simulation contour plots.... Continued
Why do I teach my first year engineering students about simple stress analysis using 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation? I want them to get excited about their more advanced classes over the next 4 years. Learning the theory to derive complex formulas to understand the variables is essential, but getting early exposure to simulation software, brings theory to reality with instant visualizations and what-ifs. This shows the students the potential of using simulation in the real world. In this lesson, learn the proper workflow to upload a SOLIDWORKS part to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and perform a Static Linear Simulation study using the Abaqus solver.... Continued
3DSwym is your communication center on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It’s a communication tool built with design teams in mind. The 3DSwym App is the Social and Collaborative App for students, engineers, scientists and other professionals to view, participate, and create in Communities of common interests. Only a web-browser and a 3DEXPERIENCE ID is required.... Continued
Job Skills. Employment. Retraining. Words we hear over again. We need qualified designers and machinists. We need training for young adults that need skill sets for great jobs. The Deeplocal organization is a group of creative engineers who invent interactive... Continued
Engineering students from Université Catholique de Louvain, Belgium are ready for this year’s Eurobot Autonomous Robot Competition. To prepare for competition, UC Louvain’s project became an integral part of the students training as engineers in electromechanical – mechatronics. Five teams created... Continued
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
In this lesson, we will address how to open a file, using the Browser, within SOLIDWORKS. To open a file in the Browser requires searching for the file. No Apps are required. It should remind you of using Google or any other search engine.... Continued
Under the direction of Viacheslav Kharzhevskyi, Khmelnytskyi National University, Ukraine, DSc, Professor and head of the SOLIDWORKS Center in the Ukraine, over 500 students and educators have received Certified SOLIDWORKS Associate (CSWA) or Certified SOLIDWORKS Professional (CSWP) certifications. Khmelnytskyi National... Continued
With SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, students need to understand both Windows and cloud-based Apps. This lesson takes you through creating a collaborative space on the platform then using a Bookmark to save a SOLIDWORKS assembly to the cloud platform.... Continued
