Cloud-based CAD Modeling Software

Working on the cloud opens up endless possibilities for your team of design professionals. Operate out of one platform for clear, visible data sharing and collaboration from concept to production in real-time.

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

Designing on the Cloud

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a cloud-based environment that connects your product development process from design to manufacturing and delivery. Ideal for organizations of any size, as your organization and needs evolve, you can access a seamless portfolio of solutions to manage every aspect of your product lifecycle and help eliminate design bottlenecks.

3DEXPERIENCE Works Overview

Collaboration is Simpler Online

The platform provides a single source of truth so your teams can share data securely from anywhere. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform 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.

3DEXPERIENCE WORKS for 3D Design, Simulation, and Data & Lifecycle Management

3DEXPERIENCE WORKS is a portfolio of solutions combining the ease-of-use of SOLIDWORKS with the power and breadth of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

With 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS, your teams have access to powerful capabilities for design (SOLIDWORKS), simulation (SIMULIAworks), manufacturing (DELMIAworks) and product data and lifecycle management (ENOVIAworks). The portfolio enables you to extend your product development capabilities and solve new problems faster with detailed modeling
