SIMULIA Jun 04, 2024

Simulation becomes more important by the day for competitive product innovation, but it comes at a cost. Can you do a more sophisticated simulation while keeping the budget under control? The answer is “yes” thanks to a new type of universal licensing and cloud compute for Abaqus, CST Studio Suite, and the other SIMULIA and 3DEXPERIENCE SIMULATION tools.

In a previous blog, we discussed how to access the history of a file in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform using the Collaboration & Approvals app. Until the April 2024 FD2.0 update, this was the only way to see this information on a file. It's now even easier to view these details (and with a lot more information) with the new History tab in the information window.

You've probably heard that CATIA has better performance for large assembly CAD, but better by how much? We ran some tests comparing SOLIDWORKS to CATIA V5 and 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA, and here's the answer.

SIMULATION Apr 16, 2024

Composite Analysis functionality has long been enabled by powerful solvers like Abaqus, and the foremost composites design tool is CATIA. Both solutions are industry leaders, and the advent of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform has enabled these functionalities to be merged into a single solution for a Modeling and Simulation (MODSIM) unified workflow for all of your composites needs.

As a SOLIDWORKS or CATIA company, making the correct design decisions while juggling a stack of competing requirements is hard. Luckily, there's a cloud-powered design optimization tool to exhaustively and realistically simulate thousands of variants at once, ensuring your product is the best it can be: The Multidisciplinary Optimization Engineer role on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.


The word “generative” has certainly risen in popularity over the last couple of years. Most people probably jump to “generative AI”, which is usually understood to mean sitting in front of a computer, making a relatively simple request (often a text prompt), and – with no direct involvement in the generation process – receiving a complete output that matches that request, be it a piece of writing, an image, a song, or even a video. But what about in the design and engineering world?

In 3DEXPERIENCE, a dashboard displays content and resources for any topic or activity you are a part of in your company. Every dashboard is made up of Tabs that contain Widgets/Apps that are used to perform different tasks. The Widgets/Apps listed in each of these tabs depend on what Roles you have access to.
