“The Goal is to turn Data into Information And Information into insight”  – Carly Fiorina

Data creation and managing resources happens throughout the lifecycle of any engineering process and piles up till it reaches a point where a simplified process of managing unstructured data becomes important. 3DEXPERIENCE is the answer that SOLIDWORKS has developed with years of research and development. So, what is 3DEXPERIENCE and how can we use it?




3DEXPERIENCE is a platform that can manage data created, captured, and consumed across the entire organization and more in a structured approach. Each person across various departments in the organization is given a role in 3DEXPERIENCE that consists of a set of personalized apps, that hunts and delivers the relevant information required by them and the best part is, it can be done by just using your web browser, no installation, and available on any device at any time.


With the current culture of working from various locations, 3DEXPERIENCE provides an efficient way to collaborate not just with your internal team but with every individual in the organization enabling them access and contribute to one single structured stream of data. Individuals no longer need to work with disconnected applications and can rely on 3DEXPERIENCE to provide you all the tools required under one roof. 3DEXPERIENCE has the power to become one source for all under the organization. It could be Engineers, project managers, decision makers, stakeholders, executives, non-CAD users and more, everyone will have the ability to communicate and interact for better product development.

3DEXPERIENCE: One Cloud Platform, Endless Possibilities

3DEXPERIENCE, one source for all

Every Engineer knows the value of data management and with 3DEXPERIENCE managing your data is built in from the foundation of the platform. Advance data management capability like revision control, permission management, issue management, change management and resource planning are all built into the platform giving you real time information.

The complete 3DEXPERIENCE is a solution that was developed to keep implementations as simple as possible. The entire platform is one plug in solution that can be easily implemented throughout the entire organization. There is no need to rely on local servers for storage, backups, or recovery plans. Additionally, updates to the applications and the platform are automatic and always stay up to date. Now that we know what is 3DEXPERIENCE and why it is needed, that concludes with one question. What solutions do we need in 3DEXPERIENCE? So, let’s look at the different solutions in 3DEXPERIENCE that you can have right now.


Now those of you who wanted SOLIDWORKS as a SaaS model can utilize 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS which gives you all the capabilities of your favorite design solution with the 3DEXPERIENCE flavor built right into SOLIDWORKS. No longer do you need to sit and install SOLIDWORKS with downloading the setup files and filling in the License Numbers to install SOLIDWORKS. Since its built in 3DEXPERIENCE it directly installs SOLIDWORKS with User Based Licensing approach. All the software updates and maintenance of both SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE is also automatic. The 3DEXPERIENCE can be accessed directly in the SOLIDWORKS user-interface giving you access to all the powerful data management tools.
