3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight Features
3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight can take advantage of the following platform capabilities:
Store on the cloud
With the 3DSymer Role you can secure data and product lifecycle management on a cloud-based platform
- Store all your drawings in a centralized, secure location and manage them from any device without any installation.
- Manage the lifecycle of DWG and DXF™ files, simulation models and documentation across disciplines and CAD applications.
- Track issues, changes and routes, and reduce conflicting edits with revision control.
Collaborate across your entire business
Use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for centralized team collaboration that can:
- Locate relevant drawings quickly by keywords, file formats, attributes and tags.
- Preview drawings. Zoom, pan and mark up drawings with multi-touch gestures directly in the browser.
- Create dashboards for personalized views into information from all sources and set alerts for data feeds.
- Share unstructured and structured content through activity streams, chat, video and user-tagged comments.
Access Industrial Service Providers
The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace provides on-demand capabilities for getting your products from design to manufacturing. It offers services for both manufacturing and intelligent part sourcing capabilities.
- Make - Leverage a worldwide ecosystem of qualified industrial manufacturing service providers and identify the best partner based on your specifications, across all manufacturing processes: 3D Printing, CNC Machining, Injection molding, sheet metal and more.
- Part Supply - Source components directly from your design environment, with the most comprehensive and intelligent online 3D components catalog.
