Agile Product Development with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
Design for the Future
The SOLIDWORKS landscape is changing. With the 3DEXPERIENCE Cloud Platform, SOLIDWORKS is now connecting people, ideas, data and solutions in a single environment, faster than ever before. Here at SOLIDX we want our customers to rest assured that these changes are nothing but positive and that, fundamentally, nothing is really changing – just improving.
Dassault Systèmes, the parent company of SOLIDWORKS, is home to many additional products that, until now, have not been part of the SOLIDWORKS universe. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows SOLIDWORKS users access to these additional technologies, whilst still keeping the SOLIDWORKS we all know and love front and centre and at the heart of your design team.
These tools are designed to augment the SOLIDWORKS experience and to use new, powerful, cloud-based technologies to make your life easier. SOLIDX’s knowledge and experience helps customers of all sizes to leverage these new tools to improve their processes, increase efficiency, and stay competitive in the fast-moving world of mechanical design.

Network licenses offer fantastic flexibility for companies needing to share licenses between multiple users and machines, managing the distribution of licenses from your company server. But what if you’re working away from the server? How can you still use SOLIDWORKS? The ability to “Borrow” a license from the server for up-to 30 days is your solution.

From 2023, all information and applications that were previously controlled through the SOLIDWORKS Customer Portal, have now switch to the 3DEXPERIENCE Customer Portal. In order for a SOLIDWORKS user to access the subscription benefits of their company, they will need to be added as a user by the company’s SOLIDWORKS Administrator.
