Dassault Systèmes to launch two new 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS offers for students and makers


Dassault Systèmes, a developer of 3D design software, has announced the upcoming launch of two new cloud-based offers on its 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Students – to be available in May 2021 – and 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers – to be available in the second half of 2021 – were unveiled during the company’s 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 virtual event, which ran from 8 – 11 February 2021.

Dassault said the offers will provide students and makers with cloud-based access to the world’s most powerful digital environment for design, engineering and collaborative innovation.

“3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Students helps prepare students for employability in a highly competitive job market by developing the engineering, collaboration, project management and data intelligence skills that are highly sought after by industry today,” the company said in a statement.

“The offer, which can be used from anywhere, features 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Student, 3D Designer Student and Collaborative Business and Industry Innovator applications, access to a global online community of peers and experts on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and two industry-recognized certifications.

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers, on the other hand, brings makers, mentors and ideas together to create, connect and collaborate.

“Digital hobbyists can innovate using 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional, 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor applications, and share their personal projects with the global Makers Community Madein3D – curated by Dassault Systèmes with the participation of makers, influencers and innovators – for help and inspiration,” reads the statement.
