3DEXPERIENCE Platform: Learning Everywhere

MySolidWorks 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Do you have a passion for technology? Do you want to learn new technologies, like 3DEXPERIENCE? Overwhelmed with student loan debt and cannot afford expensive professional training at a local training center? Is the risk of exposure to COVID-19 or other viruses too significant?  

If you answered yes to any of these questions, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is for you. In the platform, you can collaborate on unique products with some of the top designers and engineers in the industry. Even if you want to share your incredible designs or enjoy feedback from professionals within the industry, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a place to collaborate remotely and openly. If you are looking to make a career change and technology is of interest, you are at the right place.


Introducing The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

The 3DExperience platform is the latest release from Dassault Systems and is growing in demand. Many companies are taking advantage of it. If you’re interested in a demo of the platform before we get into specifics, you can do so here.

So how can you learn how to use this new technology without depleting your bank account?

You can use the same login credentials for the 3DEXPERIENCE platform if you already have access to the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal. Suppose you do not have login credentials, but you have access to a seat of SOLIDWORKS or another SOLIDWORKS product that is currently on subscription service. In that case, you can use the serial number from that seat to set up login credentials. 

Suppose you do not have a seat of SOLIDWORKS that is currently on subscription service. In that case, immediate access to MySolidWorks will not be possible. You will have to purchase access to the platform. Do not worry; it is very inexpensive.


Purchasing Access to The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform


One way to purchase and gain access to the new platform is to go to MySolidWorks and join directly through their link. This route is the most common way to access the platform to see pricing and other benefits in SOLIDWORKS that can work in your favor in a remote environment.

There is also another site where you can access very low-cost online training on an entire suite of unique technology directly from 3DEXPERIENCE Edu. 3DEXPERIENCE Edu is an especially great resource for individuals working remotely and looking to up their SOLIDWORKS game.


You will need to set up an account on 3DEXPERIENCE Edu to gain access to the platform, but with the low cost, the training you will gain will pay for itself quickly.
