17 April 2013
Dassault Systèmes, a provider of 3D design software, 3D digital mock-up and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions, has launched My.SolidWorks, a free community that provides one single access to any SolidWorks content.
The company believes that today’s designers are under constant pressure to create better designs in less time and SolidWorks is a key tool for achieving those productivity gains. My.SolidWorks lets these users tap into the knowledge and experience of two million users and more than 400 value-added resellers in the SolidWorks Community.
'My.SolidWorks allows me to quickly find new and old posts to help me with my current job. It makes it much quicker and easier to participate in the community,' said Scott Baugh, CAD administrator at Berry Plastics Corporation. 'I can see what folks are asking or talking about right now, and share my ideas and opinions with colleagues.
Dassault says My.SolidWorks offers many improvements to the SolidWorks Community, in several different categories:
- Experience: My.SolidWorks provides a consolidated view of the latest updates from around the SolidWorks community. The latest blog posts, discussions and videos are presented in an easily digestible format and can be filtered based on users’ individual needs and interests;
- Find: My.SolidWorks lets users search the entire SolidWorks community at once, making it easier for users to find the tips and insights they need to get the most out of SolidWorks. They can also share what they find with colleagues, peers and friends with the social capabilities built into My.SolidWorks; and
- Engage: My.SolidWorks makes it easier for new and existing users to engage with the community; stay on top of current design topics, and add their own knowledge and expertise to the discussion.
