Use social innovation and collaboration for better design

SOLIDWORKS xDesign Design Guidance

Working on the cloud provides significant value during the product development process without needing to leverage enterprise data management tools. With transparent data management, embedded social innovation, and extensive collaboration capabilities, you now have the ability to share, communicate, and control your projects. SOLIDWORKS xDesign gives you an easy-to-use, cloud-based project collaboration infrastructure that will help YOU:

Design Guidance

When facing tough structural design challenges, let Design Guidance offer possible solutions. Simply provide the part connection points and force conditions and Design Guidance will give you insight into what your part should look like sparking your inspiration. Keep it as a guidance reference or use it in your model.

Mass Reduction for Manufacturing

One of the critical objectives of product design is ensuring that the cost is as low as possible. xDesign Mass Reduction helps you redesign models for lower part mass, while ensuring the desired form, function, and performance.

Project Management

Take control of your business and understand workflow progress by creating collaborative tasks, assigning and linking them to the parts you are working on. Manage the tasks and monitor the progress of execution through navigating with a project management dashboard.

No Hassle Cloud

Being cloud-based, with no software to install configure or manage, you are always working with the latest version of xDesign on all your devices.


SOLIDWORKS xDesign shares the same data model as the rich portfolio of 3DEXPERIENCE roles and applications, such as SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer, Product Designer and others. This allows users to easily extend their portfolio of tools as their business grows and their designs evolve. Whether you are a two-person startup or a multinational enterprise, this lets you seamlessly scale your design and manufacturing process using the full power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.


SOLIDWORKS xDesign is hosted on infrastructure owned and operated by Dassault Systemes.  After being in business for more than 35 years, and gaining the trust of more than 200,000 companies worldwide.
