3DExperience Platform

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform takes design, project collaboration, document storage, and communication to a single, cloud-based environment.

3DEXPERIENCE Platform - Getting Started - SOLIDWORKS
What Is The


3DEXPERIENCE WORKS is a portfolio of best-of-breed solutions connected to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, an intuitive, product-development-centric environment in the cloud. Combining the ease of use of SOLIDWORKS with the power and breadth of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, portfolio solutions seamlessly work together to help you innovate and accelerate every aspect of bringing products to market. Benefit from roles (applications) in multiple domains such as design, governance, simulation, and manufacturing.


Step 1 - Choose A Category

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform includes four main catagories:

Step 2 - Assign Roles

Once you have determined your category, you can begin to assign roles within your organization.  Roles are grouped by job function and contain different sets of applications in order to ensure the best possible tool for each employee.

Step 3 - Unlock Apps

Now that you have assigned roles within your organization, your users will be able to access the apps associated with their role. Apps provide the actual functionality of the platform, for example, the xDesign app offers mechanical CAD design, while the Project Planner app provides project management, task assignment – all in a collaborative environment.
