3D Design

Innovation ‘right the first time’: The dawn of three-dimensional surface design.

It all started in 1981 with the launch of our first software solution, CATIA, that brought three-dimensional surface design for objects and products to transform industry.

3D Digital Mock-up (DMU)

Innovation through collaboration: 3D Digital Mock-Up (DMU) for three-dimensional design of entire complex systems.

In 1989, we took our ambitions to new heights, collaborating with Boeing to create the first virtual twin of their Boeing 777. At this stage, we started representing the inside of complex systems.



Innovation at every stage of the value chain: 3D Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) across the development lifecycle.

Just before the turn of the millennium in 1999, we expanded our focus to end-to-end product lifecycle management entirely in 3D. This began the phase where we started representing time in our solutions, considering every stage from design to production to distribution to recycling.

Innovation through experience: Creating value through product usage.

In 2012, we introduced the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to provide virtual twins to navigate, evaluate, and holistically experiment with and improve an idea in the virtual world to make it reality. Our customers needed to adapt to the experience economy, where experiences are more important than products themselves, so we brought the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to market to help our clients to create delightful experiences desired by consumers.


Virtual Twin Experience of Humans

Innovation in the organic world: Applying our experience transforming industry to transform human experience.

Imagine being able to model, test and cure a human body as well as we do with a plane or a car. That what we expanded our focus on in 2020, taking our decades of experience improving the inorganic world to expand our focus from things to life. The new era demands nothing less than the virtual twin experience of the human body itself.
