VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France — February 9, 2021 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA) today announced the upcoming launch of two offers that deliver new ways to design, collaborate, share and excel: 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers and 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Students.  The offers, which were unveiled during Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE World 2021 virtual event, will provide makers and students with cloud-based access to the world’s most powerful digital environment for design, engineering and collaborative innovation.

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Makers brings makers, mentors and ideas together to create, connect and collaborate.  Digital hobbyists can innovate using 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional, 3D Creator and 3D Sculptor applications, and share their personal projects with the global Makers Community Madein3D – curated by Dassault Systèmes with the participation of makers, influencers and innovators – for help and inspiration.  

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS for Students helps prepare students for employability in a highly competitive job market by developing the engineering, collaboration, project management and data intelligence skills that are highly sought after by industry today. The offer, which can be used from anywhere, features 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Student, 3D Designer Student and Collaborative Business and Industry Innovator applications, access to a global online community of peers and experts on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and two industry-recognized certifications.

“From products to platform, from connections to relationships … 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS transforms how students and makers learn, collaborate and innovate,” said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. “Students can use the right tools early on to develop the skills sought after by industry and thrive in the workplace.  Makers can be part of a community that shares their passion for making products and is ready to help with its expertise and desire to collaborate.
