Accelerate your product innovation with cloud

 Stay informed and keep updated with cloud ,3DEXPERIENCE portal is the gateway for all of the product creation needs, offering access to an increasing suite of effortlessly collaborating solutions.

Here we'll see collaborative business innovator providing basic apps, helping users create dashboards and social networks, securely gathering and sharing data, connecting people, skills and knowledge at one location

Collaborative Business Innovator enables us to address the following needs, such as lack of collaboration due to the Scattered Team, difficulties in accessing design data securely, difficulties in employee engagement across departments, IT Administration & Organizational Information Control. Here are a few of the major applications used

Business Innovator role includes, but is not limited to, the following apps and services

• 3DDashboard – interactive workspaces

• 3DSwym – collaborative networking for teams

• 3DDrive – file management and exchange

• 3DSearch – semantic search

• 3DPlay – immersive 3D visualization

• Users Group – collaborate and share with groups of users

3D dashboard:

Develop your own interface and customize it to match your needs by inserting widgets and tabs to display topics of your interest, welcome members as readers, contributors and owners to your dashboard where read-only access is possible and contributors can edit widget content but cannot change the dashboard 's configuration or property or location or widget scale. Owner will edit the content of the dashboard and widget configuration, change the dashboard property and delete the dashboard.


It helps people to create shared communities, and it is a wide-ranging social media web organization by building team, mission, and department focused groups. You may add post here for publishing a material within a group.

We can add collaborative media in the community to share the video, 3D model and screen capture. We can also create tasks within the community and assign them to members, and the assignor can quickly change the status within the community such we can add ideas , questions and surveys within the 3D swym.

3D Drive

3D drive allows you to upload your files to the platform and share them securely with other members, allowing you to share them on the basis of permissions such as viewing, editing and sharing external links with non-platform users

With 3D drive synchronization, the file can be handled directly from the Windows Explorer.3D drive combined with solid works using a 3D adapter so you can access files directly from the solidworks task screen.

3D play

It's an online viewer used to preview files anywhere it helps you to interview 3D designers, take measurements and blast, build and download engineering data with the aid of 3D play so we will post a snapchat of concept feedback to 3D swym

Therefore, we can use the aid of Collaborative company innovator

De-Constructing Designs is not a Big Deal

 A 3D mesh is the structural build of a 3D model consisting of polygons. 3D meshes use reference points in X, Y and Z axes to define shapes with height, width and depth.

3D Mesh modelling is required for clients who need vector representation of irregular or organically shaped object.

Let’s see how we can deal such kind of scenarios in SolidWorks 3D CAD. In general, we handle mesh files (Extracted from 3D Scanning, Cloud Points) inside SolidWorks is the big deal for CAD users.

Every year SolidWorks team work for the users to benefit their productivity. In that order we are going to see how the latest enhancement tools helps in improving the accuracy of the day to day work in terms of mesh files.  

We can open Mesh Files directly in SolidWorks and can perform various editing options in the file. One such operation is creating surfaces from mesh bodies which is available from SolidWorks 2018 Version and now let’s see how we can create it.

Creating a Surface From Mesh Feature

The Surface from mesh tool helps us in creating surface and solids from an imported mesh object. (“.obj” , “.stl” , “.off ” , “.ply” , “.ply2” ,  “.3mf ”). 

The tool has the ability to pick the various faces with regular prismatic geometry from the mesh body and create a surface from it.

For eg: we are able to select either plane , sphere , cones or cylindrical surfaces individually.


1.Open a mesh file and import it as a Graphics body.

2.Under Mesh Modelling Tab > click >Surface from Mesh



3.Under the Facets, we can select the required type of surface that is to be created under the default icons.

Note: we can select a group of facets even in the graphics area to specify the surface areas that are to be created by using paint select Facets.

4.By holding the Left mouse button we can drag the pointer in the graphical area over the components faces to be created as surface.

Note: Areas that intersect within selection circle will be highlighted as shown in the image. (To deselect the unwanted faces hold ALT + Left mouse click)

5.We can also specify the extended distance of the surface created using Extend Surface Size option.

Note : The Extended surface will exactly fits with the surfaces selected.

6.Clicking  will add the Surface From Mesh feature in design tree.

On the whole, with help of SolidWorks 3D CAD, compact your design with Mesh Files that leads to increase in output accuracy with reduction of time and take your product to the market at the earliest.

 Have you ever wanted to check the real time dynamic movement of a part in your 3D assembly?

Look no further, SOLIDWORKS 2020 introduces a new capability which brings your part to LIFE.

SOLIDWORKS prior to 2020 had the capability to show the working of a subassembly in the main assembly. Now with the new enhancement we can now also show the working a part in an assembly.

Some of the practical examples include

· Springs

· Bellows

· Hinges etc.







With the new enhancement you can massively increase efficiency in visualizing and validating assemblies with motion.

Have the Things in your Hands!

Just imagine! What if you become the President of The United States of America? What if you could have a control on stopping the bullet train with 320kph within a second in some chances of critical situation? What if the UNO announces you to monitor the whole nations in the world? Very curious. Let we break it out. In 2013, SolidWorks has introduced one of the biggest assets to the management who handle large Designs. 

We can also say it is one of the most welcome tool that meets our users and management’s expectation. The tool none other than is CAD ADMIN DASHBOARD.

CAD Admin Dashboard would have a collection of details about the process and operations that are carried out in the Design area with respect to the graphical data representations.

Let we have just three simple steps to attain the core capabilities of CAD Admin Dashboard and feel why the users sense this tool as an asset.

STEP 1 CAD Admin Dashboard shall be seen in Customer Portal which is inside SolidWorks website. To access this tool, the user must hold a SolidWorks Customer Portal account. 

STEP 2 SolidWorks Account Tab displays. Login to the portal using your User ID and Password.

If You don’t have SolidWorks Customer Portal Account, please reach your VAR and hold an account asap. It is an added benefit tool.

STEP 3 Once you get Login. Go to References-> CAD Admin Dashboard.

Core Capabilities of CAD Admin Dashboard

Once you complete the above steps (1-3), you will be seeing the complete details of the CAD Admin Dashboard window.

The things which we get here is,

  • Account Details Information
  • Machine Details
  • Lastly Updated Status
  • Serial Numbers
  • Service Pack details
  • Groups
  • Actions Taken
  • Performance of the Machine
  • Session Details

Really interesting right? The complete set of details about the SolidWorks Licenses, recent service packs installed, last updated status with date and time and moreover the performance of the machine hardware memory level and graphics support details. As we seen above, the session details of each designer’s activity [login and logout date & time] shall be taken with graphical form. Once everything noticed, the user can export the required details in EXCEL format.

However, the complete actions which shown above should have a definite source of master key to fetch [observe/monitor] all these details and displays cumulatively in a single window. In other words, there should be some source working behind these scenes. Right? Yes, here is the key. To observe/ monitor the complete set of actions, the designers should,

Open SolidWorks-> Go to System Options-> General Tab-> Enable the check box “SOLIDWORKS CUSTOMER EXPERIENCE IMPROVEMENT PROGRAM” option. This is the master key which helps to capture each and every process in the CAD Admin Dashboard. 

On the whole, I would like to express everything in simple words. “Have the Things in your Hands”. Catch up soon next. Have a great day.
