Why 3DEXPERIENCE and Abaqus

The 3DEXPERIENCE Works Structural Simulation portfolio helps businesses of all sizes (small, medium or large) solve all types of structural problems enabling companies to bring new and innovative products to market faster.

Benefits of this portfolio:

  • Accessible
    • The SaaS model provides the right set of apps for the length of a project (three-month or one-year subscription) for flexibility.
    • It is accessible directly from SOLIDWORKS® and 3DEXPERIENCE® SOLIDWORKS roles for unique and smooth design workflow.
    • Company experts can easily customize the application UI based on internal workflows for everyone in the company to access simulation.
  • Scalable and Powerful
    • All structural roles use the same Abaqus FEA technology, recognized as the industry leader, from the Designer to the Analyst role.
    • This cutting-edge, proven Abaqus technology solves with speed and accuracy from the simple linear static, small-deformation scenarios to the most complex nonlinear dynamic, large-deformation, high-speed events.
  • Connected
    • All structural roles use the same cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform where data is securely stored and easily accessible from anywhere at any time.
    • Making design decisions is faster with simulation results that are easy to review, compare and share from the web dashboard.
    • The cloud computing option lets the user choose when to run simulations in the cloud to free up local computer resources and access unique computing power.
