FAQ

Frequently asked question about the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Listed are some the most common questions we have been asked from our 15,000+ customers about the platform, it’s roles and apps.

What is the 3DExperience Platform?

3DEXPERIENCE is a cloud based business platform that offers various functionalities including mechanical CAD design, industrial CAD design, data management, and project planning.

What can I buy from the 3DExperience Platform?

The platform is divided into roles, which in turn are made up of apps. Apps provide the actual functionality of the platform, for example, the xDesign app gives mechanical CAD design, while the Project Planner app provides project management, task assignment, and progress tracking capability.

What do I need to get started with the platform?

The underlying architecture of the platform is a secure portion of the cloud server called a “Tenant”. This tenant is then where a you can build your custom dashboard and invite in their colleagues and suppliers. Without this tenant, you can only access public dashboards (i.e. DraftSight) via a web link. A tenant is ordered alongside the roles for a you to begin using the 3DEXPERIENCE.

What are the different roles available?

The are hundreds of roles available but only a few of them are likely to be applicable to our typical SOLIDWORKS customer. See the roles above for a guide. The roles cover 3D Modeling, Generative Design, Simulation and Collaboration.

How much does the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform cost?

With hundreds of roles available there is no one price for an individual app/role. For a rough guide, the cost of a 3D Creator role is £???? per user. This includes the apps xDesign, SOLIDWORKS Connector and Derived Format SOLIDWORKS.

How do I buy a licence or 'role' to use on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform?

To purchase a licence for the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, you can contact a member of our team who will discuss what your requirements are. From there you can arrange a quote, trial or free demonstration.

Simply contact us on 01663 741 405 or complete the form below.

As we are part of the Solid Solutions Group all of our SOLIDWORKS quotations are provided by Solid Solutions.
