Dassault Systèmes has been a trusted provider of CAD solutions since 1981 when they introduced CATIA to the world, and then SOLIDWORKS in 1997. Dassault Systèmes listens to the user community and has consistently provided software adjustments and improvements focused solely on customer feedback, streamlining design and manufacturing processes. Today, millions of SOLIDWORKS users trust Dassault Systèmes to provide their solution for 3D parametric design, simulation, data management, and collaboration.
Today, the biggest technology trends revolve around the cloud, and cloud CAD has been making huge strides. 3DEXPERIENCE offers the latest technology, making a big splash when it comes to 100 percent browser-based CAD, data management, PLM, and simulation. These cloud solutions can either complement your local installation of SOLIDWORKS or run independently in the cloud.
3DEXPERIENCE Cloud-Based Design
The latest offering, 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud CAD, provides a solution for those looking to switch to a fully cloud-based modeling system. This includes a set of web-based applications for parametric CAD, sub-division (sub-d) organic modeling, simulation, and data management. Cloud computing also reduces or eliminates the need for high-end computer hardware, server infrastructure, and IT resources.
3DEXPERIENCE Cloud Data Management
Switching to 100 percent cloud-based CAD, however, is not required in order to take advantage of cloud data management. If you currently own SOLIDWORKS, 3DEXPERIENCE data management tools work with your current CAD data. This is done through a small add-in that enables 3DEXPERIENCE cloud data management right in the SOLIDWORKS interface, just like traditional SOLIDWORKS PDM but using a cloud vault.
The Future With Cloud Computing
Cloud computing is here to stay, and it really is the latest in disruptive technology. Since the 1980s, there has been a battle of supremacy between hardware and software. Hardware gets faster and then software catches up, pushing hardware to its limit. What if that wasn’t necessary? Taking advantage of cloud computing relieves the requirement for high-end hardware and is quite possibly the way of future technologies.
