3DExperience Platform

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

3DEXPERIENCE Platform - Getting Started - SOLIDWORKS
A NEW WAY TO

Collaborate

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.

EXPERIENCE
