Embark on a digital transformation

Connect the present to the future

Benefit from the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform without migrating data or disrupting existing processes

3DEXPERIENCE PLM Collaboration Services (formerly known as 'Power'By') is Dassault Systèmes' new functionality delivered on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform which allows CATIA and non-CATIA models to be brought into the platform natively to leverage other capabilities of 3DEXPERIENCE, most notably DELMIA for manufacturing and SIMULIA for advanced analysis. Other benefits include data management, project management and search capabilities which are embedded in the platform. The goal is to be more inclusive and to make platform capabilities easily accessible to all regardless of their chosen design tool.

Embark on the 3DEXPERIENCE transformation

CATIA R2018x release opens up the power of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform to users of CATIA V5. Even users with a single seat of CATIA V5 can have instant, seamless access on the cloud to the 3DEXPERIENCE for Simulation, Manufacturing, Collaboration and unique additional Engineering capabilities.

Engineers can continue to use CATIA V5 to create new models and make these and their existing V5 models available on the platform instantly. Here they are secured, managed, tagged, visualized and shared with all product stakeholders. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform brings out-of-the-box capabilities to share and collaborate, and integrate fully with non-specialists across the value chain, making all your data instantly more valuable.




Highlights include PLM Collaboration Services; Human Experience app; multiple enhancements & additional roles to make your job easier & more productive.

Benefit from all 3DEXPERIENCE Services

Immersive Collaborative Experience means teams can now collaborate in immersive virtual reality: 'plug and play' HTC Vive head-mounted display to immediately jump into a shared virtual reality experience, and walk around and interact with the product.

For Designers: the new Human Animation app lets designers explore and animate the physical interaction of a human with their product. Designers can choose and mix several modelling mathematics to create shapes with CATIA’s Unified Modelling Environment.

For Engineers: the new CATIA Stamping Die Designer role delivers high-quality right-first-time tooling by guiding users through conceptual planning to detailed tooling design of complex stamped sheet metal parts. An extended AEC solution now addresses all participants in the end-to-end building process. The unique Function Driven Generative Designer role has been enhanced to allow non-specialist designers to automatically generate optimized conceptual assemblies from functional specifications.

For Systems Engineers:  extended Cyber Systems Engineering solution provides digital continuity to design, validate and experience mechanical, electronic and software systems within a systems engineering approach. The 2018x release brings new roles for Electrical and Electronic Architects, System Quality Analysts and System Safety Analysts.
