Dassault Systèmes Launches My.SolidWorks

Easier Access to Content and Expertise Enables SolidWorks Applications Users to Create Faster, More Efficient Designs

VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France — April 15, 2013 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today launched My.SolidWorks, a free community that provides one single access to any SolidWorks content. Today’s designers are under constant pressure to create better designs in less time and SolidWorks is a key tool for achieving those productivity gains. My.SolidWorks lets these users tap into the knowledge and experience of two million users and more than 400 value-added resellers in the SolidWorks Community.

“My.SolidWorks allows me to quickly find new and old posts to help me with my current job. It makes it much quicker and easier to participate in the community,” said Scott Baugh, CAD administrator, Berry Plastics Corporation. “I can see what folks are asking or talking about right now, and share my ideas and opinions with colleagues.”

My.SolidWorks offers many improvements to the SolidWorks Community, in several different categories:
• Experience: My.SolidWorks provides a consolidated view of the latest updates from around the SolidWorks community.  The latest blog posts, discussions and videos are presented in an easily digestible format. They can be filtered based on users’ individual needs and interests.
• Find: My.SolidWorks lets users search the entire SolidWorks community at once, making it much easier for users to find the tips and insights they need to get the most out of SolidWorks. They can also share what they find with colleagues, peers and friends with the social capabilities built into My.SolidWorks.
• Engage: My.SolidWorks makes it easier for new and existing users to engage with the community; stay on top of current design topics, and add their own knowledge and expertise to the discussion.

“With My.SolidWorks, it’s much easier for me to search for and find the answers I need, whether that’s from a video post, a discussion in the forums, from the Help menu or somewhere else within the SolidWorks ecosystem,” added Anna Wood, design engineer/CAD administrator, Auer Precision.
