Frequently asked questions
To make an informed choice about 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS, you need all the relevant information. Here are the answers to the questions we are asked most frequently.
What are the benefits of 3DEXPERIENCE?
Design, share, manage and invent differently
Approach your innovation differently by combining forces from R&D, engineering, production, marketing and even your customers and manufacturing partners in the same holistic environment. De-siloing your organisation, embracing talent diversity and opening up for external input empowers your creativity and makes you innovate.
Shorten time to market
Competition is fierce – this is the case in most industries. Your competitive edge hinges on your ability to bring your innovations to market fast. With 3DEXPERIENCE you can iterate designs in sync with your colleagues, test performance, keep everyone updated and share your designs with manufacturers and customers – quickly and easily. 3DEXPERIENCE introduces the structure you need to connect your organization, strengthen collaboration, accelerate your innovation and thereby shorten your time to market.
By connecting people, ideas and data in a continuous cycle, you can distinguish your products to forge true innovation. Track brand performance, product experience and various other key metrics in one central hub. We can help you take full advantage of our technology to create products that meet consumer demand and beat your competition to market.
Increase your productivity
With 3DEXPERIENCE you can implement a continuous digital process that covers all aspects of your business and value chain. 3DEXPERIENCE offers complete transparency for all stakeholders involved in your projects, as the data is centralized and always reflects the latest state of the entire process or innovation project. Users can effectively leverage this real-time perspective and interconnect in one central environment to increase productivity.
How do I get started with 3DEXPERIENCE?
3DEXPERIENCE gives you everything you need to turn your ideas into reality, including design and engineering, manufacturing and production, simulation, project management and collaboration.
The fastest and easiest way to start using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is our FastTrack service. Your organization will be thoroughly introduced to the features and functions by our local experts. To learn more, get access to an extensive range of free educational material on our support site, YouTube, LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram.
What size company is 3DEXPERIENCE right for?
3DEXPERIENCE is a scalable solution, which offers advantages for companies of all sizes. Different functionalites can be deployed as your company grows and complexity increases. Our 3DEXPERIENCE customer Andreas Lyder from Lifeline Robotics explains:
“3DEXPERIENCE has the capabilities that we may need in the future. The system is not limited, and we don’t need to change system, as it also supports a larger organization. As a small organization, we can use the bits and pieces that we need now, but then we also know, that when we move forward, we can bring in the functionality that we need as we grow.”
Contact our local experts to find the right solution for you.
Is 3DEXPERIENCE available on cloud?
3DEXPERIENCE is natively a cloud-based solution and this infrastructure offers you flexibility to stay connected with your team and work from anywhere, at any time, and on any device based on your user rights.
Is my data safely stored in 3DEXPERIENCE?
Yes. Security is at the heart of 3DEXPERIENCE, as your business depends on your intellectual property. The platform complies with the following industry standards and best practises:
ISO 2700x standards (Implementation Guide ISO 27002)
NIST 800 series

What is a role?
A role is a pack of applications that work together to help you achieve you desired result. You can buy one or multiple roles on the platform so that your team can perform their tasks by having exactly what they need for their daily work.
What do I get when I purchase a role in 3DEXPERIENCE?
Once you purchase a role you get a subscription for the amount of time you buy (3 months, 6 months or 1 year). It includes a set of applications, plus cloud storage and cloud computing resources for your data for the duration of your subscription.
You need to purchase more than one role in case multiple team members need to use the same applications. Each role is dedicated to one team member.
Can I use my purchased role on multiple devices?
Yes, you can use web applications on laptop, tablet or your smartphone. For desktop applications, please refer to certified hardware.
What is a 3D Passport and why do I need it?
3D Passport helps to keep you data secure on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. When registering using your own 3D Passport you are able to access all your purchased roles, applications and services.
What kind of support do I get once I purchased?
