About SOLIDWORKS Collaborative Designer

Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS® connects SOLIDWORKS Desktop to the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform allowing designers to securely save SOLIDWORKS data to the cloud and access it from anywhere with a browser. All 3DEXPERIENCE solutions for design, simulation, manufacturing and governance can leverage the data once it’s on the platform.

  • Save on the Cloud: Save your CAD data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and make it available to all solutions on the platform.
  • Review tasks and data: Review tasks and open design data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform without leaving SOLIDWORKS.
  • Share your SOLIDWORKS data: Enable stakeholders to use your design data along with all available business data in the cloud while you continue to work in SOLIDWORKS.
  • Collaborate on any device: Share your SOLIDWORKS designs within your business ecosystem from any device, at any time.
  • Perform Livecycle Operations: Search, explore, and select relevant design contexts from a web browser, and perform lifecycle operations including revise, release and lock/unlock.
  • Manage on the Cloud: View, share, annotate, discuss and manage designs from anywhere, at any time and on any device with a web browser.
  • Visualize online: Visualize 3D components instantly from any web-enabled device. Navigate tabular and 3D design data simultaneously and easily validate the differences between two product structures.
  • Seamless Interaction: Avoid rework and data translation errors through seamless interaction with 3DEXPERIENCE design tools such as SOLIDWORKS 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor.
  • Securely Manage & Revise: Securely manage your data and all facets of your product development process on the platform. Control revisions with specialized tools.
