My friend Scott is teaching a new SOLIDWORKS-based course at a local university. I wanted to share my answers to his questions with you and add some valuable resources for the new instructor or a seasoned educator. What is SOLIDWORKS?... 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
Why do I teach my freshmen about simple stress analysis using 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation? I want them to get excited about their 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. Begin with a SOLIDWORKS model and explore 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation workflow for a structural domain.
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
July is “learning month” for Dassault Systèmes’ employees. But I thought it would be nice to share with all engineering students our 3DEXPERIENCE Physics Simulation playlist on YouTube. It doesn’t matter if you are just about to start your engineering journey... 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
SOLIDWORKS desktop in education is now connected to advanced simulation with SIMULIA Technology through the 3DEXPERIENCE Engineer offer. Our new engineering simulation portfolio of products allows educators to cover structural mechanics, computational fluid dynamics, multibody dynamics and electromagnetic field simulation... 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
The Formula SAE Michigan event tests students’ engineering skills in automotive design, business practices, presentation skills and teamwork. The students here are from all over the world and have been working tirelessly for months to get their cars ready to... 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
Engineering and Science educators are always the first to embrace new technology while developing students’ understanding of foundational theory. Working for the largest engineering and software company in the world, provides me great insight into trends in industry that are... Continued
