3D EXPERIENCE gives users all the tools they’re familiar with but access to an extensive cloud platform with additional tools for design and collaboration.

Startups Get SOLIDWORKS Free

New design and engineering startups can access 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS and all 3DEXPERIENCE tools completely free for the first year. Some terms apply.

Design & Collaborate in the Cloud

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS gives users access to desktop SOLIDWORKS, the 3DEXPERIENCE online collaboration platform as well as cloud based parametric modelling (3D Creator) and subD modelling (3D Sculptor).


Classic desktop SOLIDWORKS - but also integrated into 3DEXPERIENCE. Existing users can keep their workflows but also access all the other benefits.

Cloud Collaboration

Plan, discuss, design and evaluate in the cloud. 3DEXPERIENCE is the ecosystem for design and enginering teams to collaborate easily – regardless of location.

SubD Modelling

Fast and clean modelling with 3D Sculptor. Extend the capabilities of SOLIDWORKS, quickly evolve precise, organic forms.

Parametric Modelling

Fast precise parametric modelling in the cloud with 3D Creator. Access from the 3DEXPERIENCE dashboard – no powerful workstation required, just a connection.


Extend your tools with rendering, simulation and more. Add traditional plugins to desktop SOLIDWORKS whilst leveraging all the features of 3DEXPERIENCE.

No Upgrade Process

No managed upgrade processes needed. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform and tools are regaularly updated behind the scenes. You’re always on the latest version.


It’s a powerful design tool meeting Spark’s needs. The platform saves us time; it is simple and very intuitive to use.

Mélanie Péquet

Mechanical Engineer, Spark Techology

By designing parts and assemblies in SOLIDWORKS, 3D printing them, and then trying them out, we were able to iterate very quickly and launch the Reach a year ahead of schedule. We knew that we had something good, and our enthusiasm coupled with the efficiency of our design tools helped us to advance our design faster and reduce prototyping requirements on the back end.
