3DEXPERIENCE is a business and innovation platform that provides organizations with a holistic, real-time vision of their business activity and ecosystem. It connects people, ideas, data and solutions in a single collaborative environment empowering businesses – from startups to large enterprises, to innovate, produce and trade in entirely new ways.


The platform acts as a single version of the truth to anchor outcome-based processes and capture all activities in one place. It securely connects individuals, teams, departments and external collaborators working together to transform ideas into innovative products, services and experiences.

Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the only platform that is both a system of operations to run a business and a business model to transform a business.


As a system of operations, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables businesses to reach operational excellence. It allows everyone involved – from the research lab to the factory floor – to interact and work together. As a result, it empowers businesses to design and test consumer experiences, from the idea to market delivery and usage, before physically producing them.


As a business model, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows businesses to become “platform companies” that transform the relationships and roles across their business network by removing intermediaries between sellers and buyers, purchasers and subcontractors, service providers and end customers. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform acts as a marketplace that connects customers needing to buy services (3D printing, design etc.) and service providers.

Shorter Time to Market

The platform accelerates the process of innovating and testing new ideas 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 and the development of prototype, thus shorten the time to market for your products, services and experiences.


More Holistic Collaboration

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, plan and work using a common language and product definition. Individuals working remotely or teams not previously involved in the development cycle can easily contribute to the innovation process. This holistic way of approaching work – and more specifically innovation – promotes collaboration and boosts transparency.


Greater Traceability

The platform provides better visibility into processes and projects with traceability of changes and decisions. By combining design, engineering, manufacturing and project management, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a single integrated view to manage projects and processes in real time. This single digital representation allows anyone to visualize the status of a project at any given time and quickly access all project information.


Faster Experimentation

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. Using virtual twins, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform allows for realistic test scenarios in a fraction of the time it would take in the physical world and delivers the best combinations given the desired outcome. Stakeholders continuously experiment, derive knowledge by exploring all possibilities and scenarios.


Know-how Sharing

A unified environment shared with all stakeholders encourages them to pool their expertise and share ideas more freely. Gathering and making available information on past projects such as design libraries, project templates and quality profiles promote the development of best practices. This leads to better products and services. It helps young designers, engineers and professionals entering the workforce accelerate the acquisition of industry knowledge.

The pace of business is getting faster. To stay on top, organizations need to identify new ways of working that remove bottlenecks and silos of operation. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform connects people, processes and data together in a cloud-based environment that is accessible from anywhere, at any time and on any device. As a result, people from across all business functions are able to come together and work efficiently toward a common goal.


Improved Collaboration

There is no single path to innovation. That is why leading companies understand they need to look beyond the delivery of products and services to ensure the continuous delivery of innovation. They need the capability to imagine new ideas, solve big problems and deliver new experiences. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a unified environment where teams can come together and turn imagination into reality.


Greater Innovation

The platform provides better visibility into processes and projects with traceability of changes and decisions. By combining design, engineering, manufacturing and project management, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers a single integrated view to manage projects and processes in real time. This single digital representation allows anyone to visualize the status of a project at any given time and quickly access all project information.


Increased Agility

Change is the only constant. Organizations that anticipate and quickly respond to change are best able to take advantage of new market opportunities and grow their competitive advantage. With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, teams from across the enterprise gain universal access to real-time information, allowing them to proactively identify risks, flexibly adapt to change and collaboratively address problems.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is in use by companies of every size, from start-ups to large enterprises. Startups such as Syroco (yacht design), sewts (automated clothing production), and Canoo (transportation) have adopted the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to drive innovation and disrupt their respective industry. Large, global companies such as Bouygues Construction (construction), Miele (appliances), Toyo Tire Corporation (tires and automotive parts) are using  3DEXPERIENCE platform to accelerate their product development process and  build their next generation of products and services.

Every day leading companies like CLAAS, Digital Orthopaedics, Embraer and Familia Torres turn industry challenges into business opportunities using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
