One of the biggest announcements at SOLIDWORKS WORLD this year was the inclusion of SOCIAL COLLABORATION SERVICES (or SCS) at no cost with every seat of SOLIDWORKS on subscription. SCS enables a variety of tools which design teams can use to access their design information anywhere, anytime and from any device. Amongst other things, teams using SCS can create Dashboards to manage their projects, create communities to chat and share ideas, and set up shared 3DDrives to sync files between the cloud and their local hard drive. All of the apps included in SCS are shown in image 1, right.
With the SOLIDWORKS 3D Experience Platform and SCS, you can:
- sync files between the 3DDrive in the cloud to a local drive on your computer
- easily drag & drop and share SOLIDWORKS libraries of templates, sheet formats, and materials across your entire design team
- make sure your team is always working from the same standardised company libraries
See below a few tips on how to install 3D drive and the 3D Experience Drive for Windows.
