Your online collaborative hub for complete product development

What is the 3DEXPERIENCE platform?

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a business-wide tool that provides access to Dassault Systèmes' huge range of engineering software solutions to enable complete product development through browser-based applications.

As a modular solution, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is scalable, and can be adapted to grow with your business and empower collaboration between departments.

How does the 3DEXPERIENCE platform work?

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is comprised of purchased roles which contain individual applications.


What are Roles?

Functionality on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is broken down into different job roles which can all be licensed separately.

Each role unlocks access to tools from one of Dassault Systèmes' major software brands including CATIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA, and many more.


What are Applications?

Every role contains a unique set of tools that are the software applications.

For example, the Project Planner role contains applications for project management, while the Structural Engineer role contains applications for linear FEA analysis.

What is the Digital Thread?

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is built around the concept of the digital thread to aid collaboration across departments.

This ensures all users work on the same files by eliminating data silos and file duplication with complete product lifecycle management.

Where do I start with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform?

Explore the three core methods for implementing and using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Client Testimonial

Dexai Robotics - Transforming Commercial Kitchens

"There’s a big human component that I really appreciate about TriMech. It’s very easy to get on the phone with them or email them and get an answer.

Even as we were researching 3DEXPERIENCE and comparing it with other products on the market, they seemed to have unlimited time to go through the decision-making process, which was amazing. And later, TriMech allowed me as an individual with no IT experience to roll out a PLM product to a big team."
