The Platform for Design Teams

All aspects of your design process from early concept to production on a single platform

One Platform, Endless Possibilities

Imagine a virtual space where designers can collaborate seamlessly, unleash their imagination and bring ideas to life. That’s what the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers: A unified environment where designers and their colleagues connect, create and innovate together. 


The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables design teams to unleash creativity and design amazing products and experiences. It offers a portfolio of powerful and intuitive design applications to create stunning 3D designs, organic shapes, and more. 3DEXPERIENCE also helps bridge the gap between design and manufacturing processes by performing simulation during the design phase. It accelerates innovation using guided simulation to evaluate and improve performance of the current design.

Unlocking the Benefits of Transformation for Design

reduced lead-time

Reduced Lead Time

Reduce lead time by allowing for fast back and forth between ideation, design, development and testing in a single 3D environment.

More Hollistic Collaboration

More Hollistic Collaboration

Connect all participants to the innovation process with secure, real-time collaboration across all disciplines sharing a unified infrastructure available anywhere, anytime, on any device.

Increased Productivity

Increased Productivity

Provide better visibility into projects with traceability of changes and decisions with a single digital representation shared by all.

Greater Visibility into Projects

Greater Visibility into Projects

Make better and more informed decisions based on real-time data with traceability of changes and decisions.

Faster Experimentation

Faster Experimentation

Create virtual twin experiences that add knowledge and know-how in one continuous cycle while eliminating the gap between experimentation and learning.

Explore Some of the Design & Styling Use Cases

Connected Team

The platform digitally connects all participants to the innovation process with secure, real-time collaboration across all disciplines. By sharing a common infrastructure, it enables everyone to share ideas, designs and plans using a common language and product definition. Individuals working remotely or teams not previously involved in the development cycle can now contribute to the innovation process. This holistic way of approaching work – and more specifically innovation – promotes excellence across all disciplines.

Remarkable Designs

Draw inspiration for shapes and movements found in the natural world and translate your ideas into remarkable designs. The 3DEXPERIENCE provides the agility and technical versatility to imaginesketchdevelopsimulate and optimize products and experiences. Use generative shape design to quickly model simple or complex shapes. Create surfaces and use them for parametric design. Create volumes and surfaces that take into account the requirements of mechanical, electrical, fluid flow or connected systems. No more interruption between vision and engineering.

Showcase Your Design

Use intuitive natural sketch apps to create concept volumes in 3D, which makes it easier to show intent to collaborators. Use storyboarding to show how your concept looks at each stage from start to finish. Explore styling patterns using powerful algorithmic generative modeling. Allow customers to see your work in an immersive 3D experience. View, share, annotate, discuss, visualize and manage rendered output from any device with a simple web browser.

Virtual Twin

The platform provides the ability to create virtual twin experiences that add knowledge and know-how in one continuous cycle while eliminating the gap between experimentation and learning. Real life data combined with data-driven and model-based solutions powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enable teams to simulate and evaluate impacts before manufacturing products and services or deploying processes. Continuously experiment, derive knowledge and optimize it by exploring all possibilities and scenarios.

Frequently Asked Questions

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables designers to collaborate with other stakeholders such as engineers, managers, customers and suppliers by sharing models, data, feedback, ideas in real time. You can manage projects from ideation to delivery on a single platform and avoid the pitfalls of using disparate systems.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform supports sustainable innovation by enabling industrial designers to address environmental challenges in their design process. They can use the Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) integrated to the platform to assess the environmental impact of their designs, such as carbon footprint, energy consumption, etc. The platform helps industrial designers to create products and experiences that are not only functional and attractive, but also responsible and beneficial for the planet.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is not a CAD software tool, but a comprehensive solution that covers the entire product lifecycle, from ideation to delivery. It integrates multiple applications and tools for design, simulation, manufacturing, data management, collaboration and innovation. It offers both on premise and cloud-based options. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is designed to help designers create better and more sustainable products and experiences.

The platform accelerates the process of innovating and testing new designs as it allows for fast back and forth between ideation, development and simulation in a single 3D environment. By connecting all disciplines, the platform acts as the single version of the truth required to transform ideas into innovative products and experiences. It streamlines collaboration and reduces the time between the concept phase, the development and the simulation of prototypes, thus shorten the time to market for products, services, and experiences.
