Video: What is 3DEXPERIENCE?



What are the key features within 3DEXPERIENCE?

  • Business Innovation – base level social elements of the platform
  • Industry Innovation – PLM element of the platform (data management)
  • 3D Component Designer – the connection between SOLIDWORKS and the platform for models to be progressed through workflows
  • Structural Analysis Engineer – Simulation in the cloud powered by Abaqus
  • 3DCreator – the “xDesign” app – 3D modelling in the cloud
  • 3DSculptor – the “xShape” app – organic shape modelling in the cloud
  • Simulation Foundation - review the mesh, material, analysis steps, and results through each stage of a simulation from model and scenario set-up to results.


The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a cloud-based environment that connects your product development process from design through manufacturing and delivery. Ideal for organizations of any size, as your organization and needs evolve, you can access an expanding portfolio of interconnected tools to manage every aspect of your product lifecycle. The platform provides a single source of truth so your teams can share data securely from anywhere. It empowers organizations to collaborate in real-time from any device, connect with customers and suppliers, and track progress so you can deliver unrivaled products and customer experiences.


Connect Stakeholders and Data for Collaboration

Collaboration is the cornerstone of business. Business Innovation, the foundation of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, digitally connects all stakeholders across the product development process. It enables users to create dashboards and communities that empower teams to share, experiment, and innovate with a higher degree of confidence. Further, Business Innovation securely aggregates data from across the enterprise enabling stakeholders to gather valuable feedback and improve productivity. Business Innovation connects your people and your data in one place to make intelligent, collaboration-based decisions.


The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform for Design, Simulation, and Lifecycle Management

Business Innovation is the first step in your 3DEXPERIENCE journey. Now that people and data are connected for collaboration, teams have access to powerful capabilities for design, simulation, data and lifecycle management, and more. Here is an overview of the transformational solutions available on the platform.


Intuitive Subdivision Modelling in the Cloud

3D Sculptor is a browser-based 3D subdivision modelling solution that enables industrial designers, engineers and artists to create stylized ergonomically or organically shaped models faster and easier than traditional parametric tools. Built on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, 3D Sculptor complements and seamlessly connects with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD.


Native Parametric Modeling in the Cloud

3D Creator enables designers and engineers to create, review, and evaluate 3D designs on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It provides intuitive parametric modeling capabilities and seamlessly connects with SOLIDWORKS 3D CAD and other design solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform such as 3D Sculptor. Easily model parametric solids and surfaces to convey conceptual design and/or detailed parts and assemblies.


Advanced Simulation Capabilities in the Cloud

Structural Professional Engineer brings advanced simulation powered by the Abaqus Finite Element Analysis solver to SOLIDWORKS users. Built on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, the solution extends SOLIDWORKS Simulation through tight integration. It enables you to conduct structural static, frequency, buckling, modal dynamic response, and structural-thermal analysis of parts and assemblies.


Data and Product Lifecycle Management in the Cloud

Plan, develop and release your products seamlessly with the data and product lifecycle management solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, helping you to improve productivity, collaboration and innovation. Manage product designs and documentation directly from SOLIDWORKS while making your CAD data accessible on the cloud so you can easily share it with stakeholders. Enable your teams to manage projects in real time and perform lifecycle operations including revise, release, and lock/unlock.
