In today’s rapidly evolving product design and development landscape, we encounter many challenges, most of which are caused by poor or inadequate collaboration. With 3DEXPERIENCE 3Dswymer, we can easily overcome these challenges. Collaboration can be between the design team, the managers, or any other stakeholder in the company from any department such as simulation, procuring, production, quality, selling, marketing, management etc. In some cases, collaboration goes beyond the boundaries of our company with our clients, customers, vendors, suppliers, etc.

But, the collaboration of the people, ideas, data and processes happens in disconnected silos with disconnected tools without proper traceability.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the one stop solution for any engineering team which requires collaborating and managing their people, designs, non-CAD data, processes, ideas and solutions for design, simulation, governance and manufacturing on one unified platform.

Anyone on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has access to the essential collaboration capabilities with 3DSwymer role as follows.


Create product/project specific dashboards as per your needs. Drag and drop webapps to view your designs, manage them, approve them and hundreds of other webapps to help you carry out your product data and lifecycle management activities as per your role in your organization.


Store any data in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform and manage them in folders with options to integrate the files and folders in your computer or just drag and drop the files to upload. Share files with anyone inside your organization or any external collaborator.


A widget which you can place on your dashboard to view and examine your SOLIDWORKS designs with exploded views, section views and more within a web browser from any device. Measure your products and annotate them to communicate changes and suggestions efficiently. Also, you can view your drawings, STEP files and even any non-CAD documents with any device.


Data search, being the most frustrating task for any engineer consumes most of the time in a day. With advanced 6W tags search capabilities, you can get any of your data like designs, documents, tasks projects, issues, changes, and more. Filter the results with 6W tags like what, who, when, where, how and why or with any SOLIDWORKS custom property your designs has.


Create multiple general, product or project specific communities with appropriate access to selected people where everyone can post 3D content, photos, videos, tasks ideas, questions, surveys and manage wiki pages and others can react or comment back and stay updated on status of the project.


Web based whiteboard to explain any concepts to your team by directly initiating video calls from the 3DEXPERIENCE team. To explain more complex concepts, use the 3D sketch widget where anyone can explain their ideas in 3D without any CAD experience.


Create intuitive presentations with ability to use SOLIDWORKS designs in your slides and all these with a web browser. Access these presentations to explain it to anyone or edit as you wish with any device from anywhere at any time.


Create user groups for providing permissions, sharing content, tagging in conversations or posts and so on for your organization based on departments, team, projects, products, designations and more.


Create several chart widgets with your own data and place them on your desired dashboard. Any modifications made in the original data on your local files reflect instantly on the chart with synchronization capabilities available on 3D Drive. Share these dashboards with anyone with view only or edit access.

Coming together is a beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.

These are just few of the basic collaboration capabilities of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, but there are lot more product data and lifecycle management capabilities and solutions to explore.
