3DEXPERIENCE Platform on the Cloud

Transform your company from anywhere on any computer instantly, enjoying all the advantages of the cloud!

3DEXPERIENCE Platform on the Cloud

To start understanding what aspects of the 3DExperience Platform are right for you and your business, we need to understand how it works. The Platform itself is simply a backbone for tools to work within. You can think of the Platform as an operating system. 

Within that system you will have access to your Tenant. Your Tenant is your private space on the cloud to store your data and communications. You can control who has access to this space by assigning licenses to users for specific purposes.

These licenses come in the form of Roles. Think of a Role as a job function. You may assign a designer a different level of access and tool-set that you would to a manager, shop floor technician, or a vendor.

To ease your exploration of the functionally available on the 3DExperience platform, the Roles are organized in five domains: Design and Engineering, Governance, Manufacturing/Production, Marketing/Sales, and Simulation.

In these domains, you will find the available Roles which will outline their purpose, benefits, and key applications. Explore these five domains to learn more!

Reach Operational Excellence

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps companies achieve operational excellence. It enables everyone involved in a project to interact and work together, from the research lab to the factory to the consumer. It empowers companies to design and test consumer experiences before actually producing them, from the idea to market delivery and usage.

Roles For All Your Needs

Our portfolio includes applications for 3D modeling, simulation applications that create replicas of products or production systems, social and collaborative applications, and applications for information intelligence.

Project Task Collaboration Using 3DExperience and SOLIDWORKS

Keeping your engineering tasks organized can be time-consuming. Using SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE Collaborative tasks will not only keep you organized but will also keep other in your organization informed. This webinar digs into how we can organize our tasks within the SOLIDWORKS Design Platform with 3DEXPERIENCE.

Discover The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform On The Cloud

3DEXPERIENCE on the cloud provides you with a complete suite of industry-leading solutions which gives you everything you’ll need to bring your idea to reality, including design & engineering, manufacturing & production, simulation, governance & lifecycle.



Transform innovative ideas into fully developed designs using the 3DExperience Platform. Have you ever needed the flexibility of being able to design your products away from anywhere? From desktop to fully cloud solutions, mechanical engineers and designers can now conceptualize and create new products from virtually anywhere in the world. Browser-based 3D CAD solutions give designers the ability to construct products using parametric, subdivision and direct editing tools. Connected desktop solutions give designers the power of both SOLIDWORKS and the 3DExperience Platform in one fully integrated ecosystem.


Have you ever been in a location with no access to your data and information? The 3DExperience Platform gives you access anywhere! Storing your process information in the cloud introduces a versatility to your team that will bring greater productivity and faster response times. If you’re ready to streamline your processes, see how centralizing your data on the cloud can benefit you!


Make your CAD data work for you with the power of the 3DExperience Platform Simulation tools, powered by SIMULIA. From Structures, to Flow Simulation, to Plastic Injection solutions, any problem that requires expensive and time-consuming physical prototypes is a thing of the past. Validate your designs virtually and get results faster than ever thanks to cloud computing on the 3DExperience Platform. Share and collaborate with global stakeholders directly from your web browser and get your ideas to market faster.

Manufacturing And Production

Take your machine shop to the cloud with the 3DExperience Platform. Enable your machinists to pull live CAD data from the platform to create and simulate CNC programs. Hold hybrid meetings to address action items and easily create tasks without leaving the 3DExperience Platform. Schedule and plan your production workflow in the cloud with lean manufacturing methods.

Marketing And Sales

Marketing and sales content needs to be seen by the masses. Interaction is key to making these resources valuable. We believe this makes this industry ideal for a cloud-based solution. The 3DExperience Platform is a tool that lets the sales, marketing, and technical departments converge to make sure the message gets to your customers correctly the first time. Leverage all of the knowledge in your organization to create content that resonates and enriches your audiences experience with your products!
