SOLIDWORKS xDesign – Sign up for Beta access to the new Online Design Product

Article by Rod Mackay updated February 1, 2016


During the Monday General Session at SOLIDWORKS World 2016, DS SOLIDWORKS CEO Gian Paolo Bassi announced SOLIDWORKS Xdesign – a new online SOLIDWORKS design product that works in your web browser for desktop and mobile devices. Actually during the presentation Gian Paolo showed it working on an iPad and an iPhone which was nice, so this is SOLIDWORKS for any OS then?!



Now we don’t know much about SOLIDWORKS Xdesign at the moment, and I’m sure more information will be forthcoming from DS. But what we do know is it features a lot of cool tools we’ve seen in SOLIDWORKS Industrial Designer, and also has animation and MBD functionality. Xdesign also includes the new SOLIDWORKS Xdrive app for sharing and working on SOLIDWORKS files online which was also announced during the session. Check out the video below to see the inspiration for SOLIDWORKS Xdrive.
