For over 20 years, SOLIDWORKS has sponsored student teams that partipate in regional, national and international competitions. We have walked the fields, paddocks and pits, in all kinds of weather, to talk to students. The SOLIDWORKS Edu team and our... Continued
As an educator, creating exams take time – especially for multiple sections and courses. In today’s competitive job market, your students need every advantage they can get. The SOLIDWORKS Certification Program gives your students a proven edge for employment and... Continued
The DPS Software SOLIDWORKS Student Design Contest is a 22-year-old initiative for those who want to build their future in 3D CAD design. Since its inception, over 700 unique projects have been submitted. The story below is told by Kamil... Continued
Jeremy Fielding is an invertor, teacher and influencer with a simple goal, “Draw people to mechanical engineering with amazing projects, inspire them with ideas, then teach them how to do it.” We are fortunate to work with Jeremy on projects... Continued
From SOLIDWORKS, save an assembly to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Launch the Mechanical Scenario Creation App with the Abaqus solver to create two virtual bolt connectors with nuts. Create a Surface-Based contact. Surface-Based contact defines the interaction behavior between two discrete surface regions in the model.... 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
Educators and students have been teaching and learning SOLIDWORKS for over 25 years. The SOLIDWORKS Education Edition gives students the tools to engineer, simulate, document and visualize their designs. As SOLIDWORKS has changed, so too has education. There are more... Continued
In the previous lesson, we created a linear structural simulation study using SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Simulation technology. Now modify the study and create new Simulation contour plots. Review the plots to interpret the results for Von Mises Stress, Factor of Safety, Reaction Force and Displacement.... 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
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
