SOLIDWORKS 3D Designer for Education
Nurture real-time collaboration and easily manage all your students and their projects with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. Quickly create, review and evaluate 3D prismatic models with 3D Creator. Create organic shapes with 3D Sculptor. All on the cloud – from any device, anywhere, including Macs!
SOLIDWORKS 3D Designer for Education - OBJECTIVE
3D Designer for Education is a collection of 3DEXPERIENCE Platform roles and apps created for schools, educators and their
students to collaborate seamlessly on a single platform. 3D Designer for Education provides more than just a CAD modeling tool— the 3DEXPERIENCE platform will change the way educators teach students and how students communicate with their peers.
3D Designer for Education is here to support educators and students by helping them think differently and dream
bigger. The technology landscape evolves and changes at a rapid pace, and educational institutions need to keep their educators and students ahead of the curve. 3D Designer for Education enables the workforce of the future with a suite of cloud-based apps specifically cultivated to prepare them for the workplace of tomorrow.
SOLIDWORKS 3D Designer for Education - HIGHLIGHTS
3D Designer for Education was designed to help educators and students collaborate and organize, while giving them access to the best CAD products available. But it is so much more than just CAD. With the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, educators and students will enter a new era of educational technology. Educators can utilize the many apps included in 3D Designer for Education to organize and maintain their classes with customized dashboards, class announcements, dedicated cloud storage for each student class/team, and so much more. Students can connect, design, and learn in new ways, and have the freedom to choose their own devices – even Macs, tablets and Chromebooks!
Using the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform solves several hardware issues, too. Students are now empowered to choose their own device when using the platform, anytime, anywhere. All educators and students need to access the platform is a high-speed internet connection. Schools will no longer have to stretch IT budgets on large software installations and hardware upgrades. With the entire platform in the secure cloud, there is no installation required, no overhead and no more time spent on annual updates.
WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH 3D DESIGNER FOR EDUCATION
Collaborative Business Innovator
Collaborative Business Innovator unites schools, educators, and students into a single framework for sustainable innovation. Collaborative Business Innovator includes access to 3DSwym and 3DDashboard, where students and educators can come together in a social media setting to collaborate and share ideas. Educators can organize classes, collect student projects, and more from one single platform.
Collaborative Business Innovator also comes with the 3DDrive app, which provides cloud-based document sharing capabilities, along with 3DSearch and 6WTags for educators and students to organize and search for data across all of the apps on the platform. These tools are perfect for improving collaboration for student team projects.
Collaborative Industry Innovator
Collaborative Industry Innovator provides apps and tools to organize, manage, and collaborate on content in real-time. Using the 3DSpace app, educators and students can create and manage collaborative spaces, add members with different permission levels, and provide access to any stored content. Access to any collaborative space is secure. Data is managed and stored in one unique environment and one single database, providing security and promoting collaboration.
Collaborative Industry Innovator also comes pre-loaded with best-in-class Product Data Management (PDM) apps, teaching your students valuable data management skills and preparing them for their future workplace.
3D Creator is a browser-based 3D modeling solution that enables designers and engineers to create, review, and evaluate 3D models through easy-to-use parametric modeling capabilities. 3D Creator grants access to the xDesign app, which complements SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD with flexible design workflows and a seamless interchange of design data. Educators and students can work together to create all sorts of models, with Design Guidance powered by Artificial Intelligence. Also included is the helpful Design Assistant feature, powered by machine learning, to instantly complete repetitive tasks like sketches, fillets, chamfers and more.
3D Sculptor is a 3D subdivision (sub-d) modeling tool that enables current and future industrial designers, engineers, and artists to create stylized ergonomically or organically shaped models faster and more easily than traditional parametric tools. 3D Sculptor introduces users to the xShape app, which complements the parametric workflows of SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD with intuitive push-pull subdivision modeling and seamless interchange of design data.
3D SheetMetal Creator
3D SheetMetal Creator is a browser-based modeling tool that provides a focused user experience tailored specifically for designers and engineers to bring sheet metal components and enclosures to life. Validate designs early with an instant flat pattern tool, highlighting any manufacturing issues. Easily create industry-standard joints in a click, and automate repetitive tasks with the help from the Design Assistant, using machine learning technology.
SOLIDWORKS Connector allows SOLIDWORKS Desktop and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to communicate bilaterally in either direction. If a school is already using SOLIDWORKS desktop, they can connect existing projects seamlessly to the Platform, introducing features and workflows beyond SOLIDWORKS desktop capabilities. The best of both worlds at your fingertips – the choice is yours.
Project Planner allows educators and students to stay on track and meet project deadlines with easy-to-use task planning, execution, and monitoring, all in a flexible collaborative environment. This app is a must-have for team projects: it enables team members to collaborate and rapidly define, refine, see project status and complete their activities and deliverables – all in real-time – meeting key milestones and delivery dates. With an integrated commenting tool and linked cloud storage, team projects and planning couldn’t be easier.
With its growing app portfolio and secure cloud technology, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables you to manage all facets of your product development process while reducing infrastructure costs, IT overhead, software maintenance and complexity. All 3DEXPERIENCE solutions work together seamlessly making data management, sharing and collaboration easy. 3D Designer can take advantage of the following platform capabilities:
