SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services

Browser-based tools for file storage, design sharing, collaboration and more!


What are SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services?

In July 2023, Dassault Systèmes released new functionality for SOLIDWORKS users known as SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services.

These services empower engineering and design teams to solve modern challenges and minimize mundane tasks by providing tools to improve collaboration, cloud data management, and design sharing.

All new purchases of SOLIDWORKS CAD include Cloud Services as part of their subscription, while licenses purchased prior to July 2023 can be upgraded for a nominal fee.

These services are integrated within the SOLIDWORKS interface and seamlessly connect SOLIDWORKS to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, opening the door for you to access even more powerful tools for formal data management, advanced simulation, freeform modeling, marketing, and more.

Share and Markup with SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services

Share and Markup

Need to share your designs with colleagues, contractors or clients? Now you can do so from directly within SOLIDWORKS.

Whoever you're working with can then view the files from any browser, without requiring any downloads or additional installations.

Better yet, they can redline, add detailed markups, and comment directly on shared files, making it easy to keep track of collaboration history while maintaining a single source of truth.

Storeand Revise filse with SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services

Store and Revise

Access secure cloud-based data management and file storage directly within your SOLIDWORKS interface or internet browser.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is CAD-intelligent so it can understand how files relate and provides tools so that you can easily share, revise, and review your designs.

Collaborating with other designers is streamlined via the ability to lock files you're working on, revert to previous revisions, and provide feedback directly on files through comments and markups.

Manage and Control Data with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Manage and Control

The SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services come with active task management, so you can assign users tasks, manage resources, and eliminate data silos.

Plan projects, control engineering change, resolve issues, and discover new possibilities by managing your CAD data on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.

As your business grows, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can scale with you. Add new roles to gain access to advanced process, project, and file management for greater control over your data and workflows.


The Cloud Services are Made for SOLIDWORKS Users

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

The SOLIDWORKS Cloud Services are the entry point to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and offer fantastic benefits to SOLIDWORKS users.

However, these simply scratch the surface of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform's capabilities for designers and engineers.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a business-wide tool that provides access to Dassault Systèmes huge range of engineering software solutions, enabling teams to design, test, manufacture, and market their products.

The platform is modular, and its functionality is broken down into different job roles which can all be licensed separately. Each role unlocks access to tools from one of Dassault Systèmes' major software brands including CATIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA, and many more.

Introducing traceability and seamless connectivity between files and applications helps companies improve collaboration between departments, simplifies product lifecycle management, and provides easy access to key information.
