Critical Collaboration: How the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform Can Help

Times have certainly been tough lately. Business is changing quickly and drastically in response to the global pandemic and subsequent fallout that we’re all facing. The good news! We’re all in this together.

The time to come together—in all that we do—has arrived. Collaborative, integrative, and creative ways of working together are the way of this new now, and the future and those of us involved in the design process can model the way! This is particularly true when we use innovative products like the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, one of the top 3D design software suites available today.

We’ve seen quarantine, isolation, and lockdowns across the board lately. But when times get tough, we must get tougher. We must look for fresh ways to leverage the best available technology to keep our businesses running seamlessly, even in the most restricted scenarios.

Let’s take a look at how using 3DEXPERIENCE (3DX) can enhance your efforts when collaboration is critical, as it is now and as it will continue to be going forward.

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

If these times have shown us anything, it’s that working together is the ultimate form of working smarter. 3DEXPERIENCE is a Dassault product that consists of a cloud-connected suite of design apps known for bringing collaboration to life. We all know that a multidisciplinary, integrated process that facilitates collaborative efforts from design through delivery is the way to go.

That’s exactly where the 3DEXPERIENCE platform excels!

This software allows for a cloud-based and seamless product development workflow process. What’s more, the platform claims to be a fit for organizations of all sizes. Per the product website, it’s “an expanding portfolio of interconnected tools to manage every aspect of your product lifecycle.” Yes, please!

The Top 3 Ways 3DEXPERIENCE Supports You When You Need It Most

With SOLIDWORKS 2020, Dassault is weaving SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform together to create what’s called the 3DEXPERIENCE.WORKS portfolio. This integrative approach results in three amazing benefits for you, the user, when collabs are critical.

1. Collaboration is Built Right In

Sharing data and designs is a key component of the 3DX platform. Regardless of where your best teammates are physically located in the world, with 3DX, they can all collaborate, share, learn, and work together to create the very best possible solutions.

Right now, when we’re not sure when we’ll be able to see each other again face-to-face, collaborative software solutions and platforms have risen to fill our most basic needs. Connection, communication, and collaborating are made easy with 3DX. What’s more, your business is able to keep right on keeping on!

2. Security and Shared Access Come Standard

With version, access, and reviewer controls as standard features in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, you can rest assured that your designs are secure. Not only that, but it comes with all the benefits of shared, web-based access to allow your team to contribute from anywhere, even from home!

That said, the default setting for designs is read-only. Only those team members that you grant access are able to unlock (reserve or unreserve) your designs at the levels you’ve granted to them. Any device with an internet connection will work with the 3DX suite, and you’ll always know who has done what exactly.

3. Three Words: Collaborative Business Innovator

The Collaborative Business Innovator is a foundational tool inside the 3DX platform that helps facilitate quality content management. With secure storage and organization in mind, the Collaborative Business Innovator gives you a scalable solution for managing design, simulation, and manufacturing planning in one place. Now that’s easy!

With SOLIDWORKS and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, you get the best-integrated tools, maximized team efficiency throughout the product development process, and complete transparency and security. The team can work together anytime, anywhere, and on any web-connected device.

Seamless communication, connection, and collaboration mean that you’ll get the best from your team when it’s critical, regardless of what’s going on in the world around you.
