SOLIDWORKS User Forum joins the 3DEXPERIENCE Swym Communities

Article by Scott Durksen, CSWE updated April 27, 2021


If you’ve recently browsed to the SOLIDWORKS Forums, you will find yourself connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE Swym Communities.

This gives you access to the same great content that was available in the previous layout but opens up more opportunity.  Connect with other communities like DraftSight or learn more about SOLIDWORKS Connected and other 3DEXPERIENCE Apps.


You can still log in with your original SOLIDWORKS ID, so no need to create a new account.  Check out the Getting Started Video on the welcome page.

Once logged in, you’ll see many communities in the left panel.  Drag and drop your favourite communities to the top of the list.

All previous posts are being migrated to the new platform.  If you have a bookmarked link or find a post with a URL to the old forum platform, the page provides an option to Open in Forum.  The migration is still in progress so Open in Forum may not yet be available for all posts.
