What is 3D Experience ?


The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a cloud-based environment that connects your product development process from design through manufacturing and delivery. Ideal for organizations of any size, as your organization and needs evolve, you can access an expanding portfolio of interconnected tools to manage every aspect of your product lifecycle. The platform provides a single source of truth so your teams can share data securely from anywhere. It empowers organizations to collaborate in real-time from any device, connect with customers and suppliers, and track progress so you can deliver unrivaled products and customer experiences.


A 3DEXPERIENCE ID is your unique authentication account for all Dassault Systèmes services. It is not the same as your SOLIDWORKS ID. However, you can use your SOLIDWORKS ID to log into the platform if you already have on

Customers can create a 3DEXPERIENCE ID when they are invited to join or use any service on the platform. If they already have one, they can use that ID to sign-in.

3DEXPERIENCE WORKS roles are available with the following pricing structure:

  • YSC: Yearly Service Charge
  • QSC: Quarterly Service Charge
  • PSC/ASC: Primary Service Charge (one-time upfront service charge) and Annual Service Charge (recurring yearly charge due the first year and every subsequent year of usage)
All the data is saved on the customer’s 3D Experience Platform. Designers, engineers, team members or any other employees can be invited to the platform to access company data, from anywhere and at any time.
The customer always owns the data. It is just stored securely on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Customers are always n control. They define who has access to their data by inivting other peopl to their platform and granting them access to communities, 3DDrives or Collaborative Spaces. Additionally, because everything is stored securely on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, users can instantly grant to revoke access.
Dassault Systems has deployed multiple datacenters around the world to support public cloud applications. Application performance varies depending on the customer’s proximity to the datacenter.
