What is 3DEXPERIENCE® platform by Dassault Systemes?

Software solutions for every organisation in your company

Industry Solution Experiences

3DEXPERIENCE® is the next step after Product Lifecycle Management (PLM). It is a business experience platform in which companies employ 3D modeling, social collaboration, simulation, and information intelligence technologies to create delightful experiences for their ultimate clients or consumers.

Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE® platform provides software solutions for every organization in a company – creating value and differentiating consumer experiences.

3DEXPERIENCE and today’s marketplace

In an age where businesses need to look beyond the aesthetics of a product or the practicalities of a service, where consumer engagement and loyalty count far more than features and benefits alone, where consumers expect to interact with or even influence suppliers – not just be sold to;

Products are no longer enough for today’s consumers who value experience over all else.

The Age of Experience has arrived

The key to making the consumer experience the true focus of innovation is to capture insights and expertise from across a business’s entire ecosystem.

Shaping the right consumer experience requires not only the involvement of, but the collaboration between, all the roles within a company – from engineering to marketing to sales.

Only by connecting all the dots between people, ideas, and data can a business drive consumer loyalty, engagement, and value.

Dassault Systèmes brands and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform

Dassault Systèmes Brands develop applications that form the building blocks of the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform

  • Social and Collaborative (ENOVIA, CENTRICPLM, 3DEXCITE)
  • Simulation (3D VIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA)
  • Information Intelligence (EXALEAD, NETVIBES)

The applications are used to create Industry Solution Experiences (ISE)—Industry-focused offerings that deliver specific value to our clients and/or to their end-users in a particular Industry.


What is it? What do you mean by Collaborative Framework? Does On-Cloud platform control documents? How do I manage my other CAD formats (including ECAD data)? and more questions answered.


In simple terms and videos, we explain capabilities and power in delivering the platform to design and collaborate, helping you understand the On Cloud platform and how it gets you to next level of design productivity.



How to use sensors in MSC Adams

Using Sensors to Latch a Mechanism

Sometimes with a mechanism simulation you need to trigger a change in the mechanism when an event such as a latch engaging to stop a component from moving any further. You can model the geometry and use a contact model to capture the physical engagement of the geometry, but this can add to your simulation run time and require a lot of tuning to get working happily.

An alternative is to control the behaviour of the latched component directly using motions that are triggered by the use of Sensors – detecting when the event occurs using a measure and then altering the connectivity of the model to reflect the new configuration with the latch engaged. 

This simple example illustrates how the user sets up this type of simulation ….
