Freedom to Innovate Enable creative design anywhere and on any device with SOLIDWORKS

Design on the Go Introduction SOLIDWORKS offers powerful applications for creative design anytime, anywhere on any device. The applications include 3D Creator, 3D Sculptor, and 3D Pattern Shape Creator. These roles are designed to meet the expectations of today's designers with flexibility, creativity, automation, and digital continuity.

3D Creator, 3D Sculptor, and 3D Pattern Shape Creator

  • These roles are designed to meet the expectations of today's designers with total flexibility, unmatched creativity, automation, and digital continuity.
  • The applications require no installation and can be opened from a simple web browser, mobile device, or tablet.
  • 3D Sculptor features xShape, an app to quickly create and explore organic shapes using a digital clay modeling approach based on Subdivision (Sub-D) Surface Technology.
  • 3D Creator uses the xDesign application to provide users with an innovative and consistent 3D modeling workflow.
  • 3D Pattern Shape Creator uses the xGenerative Design application to enable the rapid generation of intricate irregular shapes and patterns inspired from nature for style exploration.
  • Only 38% of procurement functions have the skills and capabilities to understand business functions to add value.

3D Sculptor: A SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD Software Solution

  • Powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud, 3D Sculptor complements parametric workflows of 3D Creator and SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD software.
  • It features advanced subdivision (Sub-D) surface modeling capabilities, covered with an easily manipulated polygon mesh.
  • It works seamlessly with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD and all apps on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, allowing changes in xShape to propagate throughout SOLIDWORKS.
  • Sub-D modeling is freeform, allowing for easy changes like pushing, pulling, and creasing the shape.
  • It provides a C2 level of curvature continuity across all surfaces, creating high-quality solid geometry for downstream processes.
  • 3D Sculptor allows users to explore and design shapes, allowing them to make changes on the fly for immediate feedback.
  • It offers an intuitive, easy-to-use modeling solution, allowing users to switch from conceptual to detailed modeling environment and change the shape of the product at any point in the development lifecycle.

Key features include

  • Integrated Design Guidance (topological optimization) for additive manufacturing. Simplified data sharing and collaboration around 3D design. Create parametric 3D models anywhere and anytime. Eliminates the need to plan assembly structure with a single modeling environment. Iterates rapidly without the rework associated with typical parametric modeling tools.
