3DEXPERIENCE on the Cloud infographic


Creative Design & Styling
From 3D sketching, subdivision surface, class-A modeling to 3D printing, reverse engineering, visualization and experience, the solution provides everything you need for product design.

  • Shape & material creativity
  • High level of surface sophistication & quality
  • Virtual prototypes

Mechanical Engineering
Gain insight into key factors of quality and performance early in the product development phase. Digital prototyping, combined with digital analysis and simulation, allows you to virtually create and analyze a mechanical product in its operating environment.

  • From rough 3D sketches to fully detailed industrial assemblies
  • Unbreakable relational design
  • Smooth evolution from 2D- to 3D-based design methodologies

Systems Engineering
Quickly evaluate requests for changes and develop new products or system variants with a unified, performance-based systems engineering approach.

  • Master cross-discipline systems development
  • Develop complex «cyber-physical» products


  • Single source of truth
  • Actionable dashboarding
  • Global Collaboration
  • Security and reliability
  • 24/7 IT support and system availability
  • Knowledgeware for automation
  • Reduced costs of system and product development


Configured Product Development
Collaborate using a multi-discipline product definition that includes the product structure and Bills of Material (BOMs). Efficiently define, standardize and execute change management.

  • Maximize reuse of existing IP and assets
  • Manage the complete product definition from early definition to release
  • Implement a closed-loop change process that includes every stakeholder

3D Product Intelligence
Enable stakeholders to participate in real-time collaborative reviews on a virtual prototype. Analyze product data to identify issues and track through to resolution.

  • Bring project stakeholders together around a single product definition
  • Analyze 3D design in real-time with a complete set of technical analysis tools
  • Perform interference checks to identify clashes and validate their resolution

Project Management
Use real-time project information to make better decisions.  Manage projects top-down or use team-based planning to collaborate on smaller projects and shared tasks.

  • Perform simple and assisted iterative planning, execution, and monitoring
  • Track project execution using real-time, automated deliverable updates
  • Manage and share project information with team members


Virtual prototyping optimizes designs, improves quality, and reduces development risk. Today’s complex products require a fully featured simulation capability that links to the engineering requirements and uses versioned geometry directly within the design environment. Simulation for product design improves product reliability and reduces cost and time to market.
