3DEXPERIENCE Platform

From design and manufacturing to service and marketing. It's time unite your entire company under one collaborative, interactive environment in the cloud.

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is our cloud-based environment for every stage of your product development and process. From design through to testing, manufacturing, delivery and lifecycle management, the ever-growing collection of apps available on The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform can do it all.

What are the benefits of an online cloud solution?

Teams of all sizes can collaborate in real-time on projects, sharing live CAD data securely, wherever they are. You can even use it to connect with customers and suppliers, tracking project progress live as you go. It’s not just for CAD users either, everyone in the company can get involved. All you need is a web browser-capable device connected to the internet and you’re all set!

What do I get access to when I buy a 3DEXPERIENCE license?

The applications you’ll have access to will depend on the ‘Roles’ you purchase. For example:

Collaborative Business Innovator: Your entry point to the platform providing a single managed environment with access to communication tools, file sharing, 5GBs online storage and more. Get the datasheet.

Collaborative Industry Innovator: Adds features like data management, collaborative tasks, 20GBs of extra online storage and more to the mix. Get the datasheet.

Collaborative Designer for SOLIDWORKS: Connects your SOLIDWORKS Desktop application to the 3D Platform, giving you all the benefits of the cloud directly from the user interface you’re used to. Get the datasheet.

How to get a quote or trial of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform...

Everyone’s needs are different, so we recommend getting in touch with us to discuss your requirements. We can then advise on the best Roles and Apps to provide the functionality that you need. We can also set you up with a free trial or demo of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform if you’d like to see what it can do.

Watch: The fundamentals of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

How the 3DEXPERIENCE works.

Step one

Step one


Choose your category below and customise your perfect 3DEXPERIENCE based on your exact requirements. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform covers Design (powered by SOLIDWORKS), Simulation (Powered by SIMULIA) and Data Management (powered by ENOVIA).

Step two

Step two


When you've decided which categories you need, you can start to define 'roles' for your team. With hundreds of different roles available, everyone (not just designers!) can start collaborating on the cloud using a customised 3DEXPERIENCE dashboard configured for exactly what they need.

Step three

Step three


Once everyone in your team has been assigned a 3DEXPERIENCE role, they can unlock and start using category-specific apps for collaboration, both internally with colleagues and externally with suppliers, manufacturers and even customers!
