By leveraging the 3DEXPERIENCE Smart Manufacturing 2024 tools, you can put your company’s future in the driver’s seat by having real-time communication between the shop and the engineering department, which is critical to getting parts out the door on time. Communication across a company is important, but companies must ensure everyone has access to make decisions based on the same data.

This article is part four of a five-part blog series that provides guidance on how to optimize your workstation purchase for different CAD workflows. This blog covers flow simulation—often referred to as CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics).

The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is a cloud-based environment that connects an organization’s business activities using a unified data model. When you become a 3DEXPERIENCE customer, Dassault Systèmes provides you with a Tenant. The Tenant is your cloud-based environment, your space, in one of the Data Centers (Cloud Servers) located around the world.

Designing rotating machinery requires a thorough analysis of potential vibrational feedback that could occur in the system during operation. If proper precautions are not taken, excessive vibrational excitations in rotating systems can create catastrophic failures. In this article, see how we used 3DEXPERIENCE STRUCTURAL roles and Abaqus FEA software to perform an analysis workflow focusing on the identification of critical speeds where large vibrational excitations are most likely to occur.

In this article, we'll cover some of the features and tools in 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA for assembly design, part design, drawing creation, sheet metal tools, and more. The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is the backbone of 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA, giving it some advantage over the traditional CATIA V5. For smaller to medium-sized companies without ITAR requirements, a cloud version of the platform is a great option.

In this tutorial, we provide step-by-step instructions for how to install 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA. From retrieving the installation files to first launch. 


The Fluid Dynamics Engineer Role on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform allows users to select between three turbulence models: Spalart-Allmaras, SST k-ω, and Realizable k-ε. In this article, we'll break them down to help you gain a better understanding of the differences between them and the strengths and limitations of each. 


3DEXPERIENCE has two easy ways to upload existing SOLIDWORKS files into a 3DEXPERIENCE cloud tenant. Both solutions do only the latest version of the file, so you won’t have version history for the initially migrated data. Instead, you’ll have every file set as the system’s initial revision, typically A. The two upload methods are: Bulk load tool and EDAT FTK (file-based transfer). The processes have some similarities in what they do and how they do it, but there are some important differences between them.
