I’m stuck at home. How to share Solidworks data with my team working remotely? 

Coronavirus pandemic created an unprecedented situation in the world when we are forced to work remotely. For many engineers and product development teams is a new world in which they need to figure out how to communicate with their colleagues and stay productive. 

Tools like Zoom, Slack and many others are here to rescue you, but it solves only half of the problems – communication. The other half is about the data you’re working on. How to share it efficiently with other members of the team? 

What if you’re working on Solidworks assembly and need to share information about product structure, 3D files, and other information. Today, I want to show you how OpenBOM can help you to make Solidworks data shareable in a matter of 3 minutes with just a few button clicks. 

Here are 3 steps you need to do. 

1- Navigate to openbom.com and create a free account. 

2- Install OpenBOM add-in

3- Purchase OpenBOM monthly subscription or request a free trial. 

The following video, which is made in real-time shows you how your Solidworks data will become shareable. 

One more thing, you can still request the access to OpenBOM beta version of integrated 3D Viewer. It is still available for free and you will get full access to 3D view of Solidworks data you can share. 


OpenBOM gives you an easy and simple way to share CAD data from any desktop CAD system with anybody using an intuitive Google Sheet-like web interface with all assemblies, components, attributes, images, 3D viewer and other data. Your team will be as productive as before when you worked in the same office space. 

Check what OpenBOM can do today subscribing to OpenBOM here or request a trial version. 

Best, Oleg @ openbom dot com.

Let’s get to know each other better. If you live in the Greater Boston area, I invite you for a coffee together (coffee is on me). If not nearby, let’s have a virtual coffee session — I will figure out how to send you a real coffee.
