Stay informed on the capabilities coming in July Get notified

Design is not one size fits all. SOLIDWORKS® user needs come in all shapes and sizes. Whether you need a simple way to share and markup 3D designs with suppliers, a place to securely store and access your designs, or the ability to formally manage design changes, Cloud Services capabilities coming this July to SOLIDWORKS Subscription fit how you need to get the job done.

Watch the video to explore how you can use new sharing, markup, storage, collaboration, and management features at a pace that fits your workflows and comfort level. Get ready to take advantage of these possibilities and pursue your passion for design without limits. 

Share and Markup

Sharing is a life lesson we learn early on, but it has never been this easy. With these new capabilities, you can share 3D designs with anyone directly from SOLIDWORKS. Getting real-time feedback and iterating on your work is now as easy as sharing a link from SOLIDWORKS. It’s just like eDrawings you’ve relied on for years, but no installation necessary, no need to send a physical file, and best of all, it all works from any browser.

Store and Revise

Whether it was a file cabinet or a Windows folder, designers and engineers have always needed a place to store and access their data. This July, SOLIDWORKS Subscription with Cloud Services will include secure, cloud-based storage and sharing, versioning and revision management, and easy design review capabilities. You can save your data to the cloud right from SOLIDWORKS, providing you with a secure hub to store and access your work. If you need to work with other designers, you can lock designs to ensure no one overwrites your work, easily manage revisions, and create detailed markups with redline, measurements, and annotations. Welcome to your single source of truth to keep your tasks on-point and on-time.

Manage and Control

Should you need to progress beyond sharing and storage, the data capabilities progress with you. Those with complex management needs have full access to a suite of tools to help you manage data, work through formal change actions and approvals, and keep project tasks in check. This solution scales with you, no matter your needs. These cloud enhancements connect SOLIDWORKS to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, where your possibilities extend beyond formal data management and into other areas of product development, such as advanced simulation, manufacturing, and marketing.
