Watch the video below to learn three different methods of 3DEXPERIENCE revision control.
- The first method explains Saving with Options.
- The second method demonstrates how to add a new revision inside of the SOLIDWORKS window
- The third method shows you how to add a new revisions inside of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform along with the benefits of using this method.
Matt will also explain the branch and merging feature inside of the Collaborative Lifecycle Role. Watch the video now:
3DEXPERIENCE Revision Save with Options
Save with options is the easiest way to create a new revision within the SOLIDWORKS. This will, in one step, create a new revision and place that new revision in the open window in SOLIDWORKS. With this method you can also revise multiple files at once. One important note to keep in mind is that the file will need to be reserved once revised.
New 3DEXPERIENCE Revision
Another method of creating a revision in SOLIDWORKS is to right click on the file and select new revision. The difference with this method is that it leaves the original revision as the revision that is open in SOLIDWORKS. The “+” in the task pane designates that a new revision exists in the vault. If you right click on the file and select “Replace by Revision,” the latest revision can then be loaded into the session.
3DEXPERIENCE Revision in a Web Browser
In the web browser, the Collaborative Lifecycle App can be used to create a new revision. There are a few benefits to this method. First, it provides a graphical representation of the revision history. Second, it allows the creation of revisions on any device including mobile devices.
Efficient processes and procedures are key to successfully executing the evolution of a design and the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform simplifies this effort.
