Take Advantage of SOLIDWORKS Cloud Solutions for Your Business


Cloud,SOLIDWORKS / November 29, 2022

Working in the cloud has become common for so many applications that it is now the expected norm for businesses of all sizes. And for good reason. Cloud solutions provide organizations with the scalability and flexibility they need to succeed in today’s digital world. For PDM and CAD designers, the cloud has made it possible to create designs and simulations that can be accessed from any device, anywhere.

SOLIDWORKS Cloud Solutions provide you with the tools and resources you need to create high-quality designs and simulations. Your team will be able to take full advantage of a suite of features that make collaboration on design easier than ever.

Here’s how to take advantage of SOLIDWORKS cloud solutions for your business.

Working Remotely is the New Normal

As in so many of your business’ other functions, the trend these days is for remote work. With the cloud, that trend has only become stronger. With remote work, you not only save on expenses by working from anywhere in the world, but you also get the added benefit of increased collaboration.

With SOLIDWORKS cloud solutions, the seamless cloud integration and mobility make it easy to get your work done from anywhere. You can access your designs and simulations from any device and easily share them with your team. The same convenience and power you are accustomed to for other applications is a major advantage for SOLIDWORKS.

The Critical Need for Secure and Consistent Data Management

As your business grows, so does the amount of data you need to manage. That can be a challenge, but with the help of the cloud, you can take advantage of advanced data management tools. These tools make it easy for you to access and use data in the way that best suits your needs, across teams, anywhere in the world.

PDM is a critical part of your business, and the cloud can help you to keep up with the ever-growing demands for data management. SOLIDWORKS cloud solutions provide you with the tools you need to manage data with precision and accuracy.

Move Desktop PDM to the Cloud

Desktop PDM is a great tool, but it can be a bit cumbersome to use. That’s why many businesses have chosen to move their PDM to the cloud. With the cloud, you can access your PDM from any device, and you can use it to create designs and simulations.

Your product data management might be a bit more complicated than your CAD data management, but the cloud can help you to manage both with ease.


Another great option for PDM and CAD designers is the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. This platform offers a great deal of flexibility and scalability, making them perfect for businesses of all sizes.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Works platform is a completely cloud-based solution for collaboration tools, PLM-level data management, and a lot more. It differs slightly from  SOLIDWORKS solutions, as it pulls many of the Dassault solution families together. This includes DELMIA, SIMUIA, SOLIDWORKS, and ENOVIA.

Each solution is usually purchased as a role, and those roles will come with a specific app.  These will match different job requirements and will have the right technologies and tools for each user .

Cloud Workspaces

Cloud workspaces take collaborative CAD design to the next level. Let’s say you have a design that you need to share with your team. With a cloud workspace, you can easily share the design, manage permissions with your team, and they can start working on it right away.

With cloud workspaces, you can easily access your designs and simulations from any device, which updates with the latest version live.

Offline and Online Collaboration

SOLIDWORKS cloud solutions make it easy for you to collaborate with your team, even if they are not all located in the same location. With the cloud, you can easily access your designs and simulations from any device, and you can easily share them with your team. You can also use our powerful collaboration tools to help you work together on designs and simulations.

In addition, you can access your designs and simulations even if your team is offline. With SOLIDWORKS solutions, you can work on your designs even when you’re not connected to the internet, and they will update when you are online again.

Security Built In

While offline solutions have a single point of failure making your data less secure, SOLIDWORKS cloud solutions are designed with security in mind. With cloud solutions, you can easily protect your data with our powerful security features. You can create user profiles and passwords, and you can easily encrypt your data, with multiple points of access and accounts so you don’t get stranded from your data.
