3DEXPERIENCE is a collaborative platform for creating products and services in the cloud, particularly in the area of design, engineering, and manufacturing.
3DEXPERIENCE allows everyone involved to interact and work together on a product: exchange data, contribute to a design, build and test a virtual model.
The platform also has its marketplace for on-demand manufacturing, 3D parts catalog, and engineering services.
Onshape is a CAD software system, delivered via internet. It is focused on mechanical CAD and is used for product and machinery design in many industries, such as electronics, machinery, medical devices, 3D printing, machine parts and industrial equipment.
