A special “Touch Mode” for use on mobile and touch screen devices
Main Design app: xShape
Push and pull interaction to create complex surfaces quickly
Sketch guides where images and sketches can be used to create 3D surface geometry
Ability to automatically convert subdivision surfaces to NURBS geometry
Creation of stylized models faster than parametric tools
3D Sheet Metal Creator
Main Design app: xSheetMetal
Create complex 3D sheet metal geometry and automatically generate and view 2D flat pattern geometry
Review and prepare accurate 2D flat patterns for manufacturing that always stay up to date with the folded geometry
Easily design sheet metal assemblies and enclosures around existing mechanical or electrical geometry
Work back and forth with other 3DEXPERIENCE Works tools to design concurrently with your team and create complex assemblies together
3D Structure Creator
Create structure members based on model edges, 2D sketch elements or curves
Choose profiles from a library of standard types and sizes
Automatically trim members at endpoints and corners
Automatically generate a cut-list based on the design to use for fabrication
Seamless integration with other 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio roles, such as 3D Creator and 3D SheetMetal Creator
Manufacturing Definition Creator
Create 2D layouts with no extra effort using existing captured views, annotations, dimensions, and tolerances
Define requirements with drawings tools such as tables, notes, and title blocks
Access sheet formats, and standards for drawing creation
3D definitions translate seamlessly to the 2D drawing so everything stays in sync across the model, 3D definition and 2D drawing
Define dimensions, tolerances, datum symbols, geometric dimensioning and tolerances (GD&T), balloons, and more
Capture various orthogonal, axonometric, and custom views at desired perspectives and zoom levels
Organize annotations into specific views to communicate design intent. Quickly find annotations organized under each view
Choose from various colors, materials and backgrounds to meet design goals and explore other options
Stage your products with multiple ambience and lighting settings to realistically represent products
Quickly output different iterations for color, look-and-feel, and backplates
Quickly generate production-ready 2D drawings from your 3D parts and assemblies.
Drag and drop your 3D model into a drawing to automatically create a view.
Your drawings are always up-to-date as, at the click of a button, they instantly refresh when you modify your 3D model.
Create standard and detail views, sections, and more automatically and accurately based on your 3D model.
Easily apply production-quality dimensions and annotations to your drawings.
Create all necessary symbols, notes and tables.

Collaborative Business Innovator/3DSwymer (new name)
Digitally connects all users through powerful apps and services, providing an immersive space where they can collaborate, experiment, and create together. Utilizing the power of the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform, companies can keep employees, suppliers, partners and customers in the loop, across the globe, anytime, anywhere and on any connected device.
3DDashboard- Create dashboards for personalized views for up-to-date information relevant to you, your teams, and executives
3DSwym- Create conversation chats, voice/video calls, screen-sharing. Create and access communities to share expertise, knowledge, and skills; assign tasks and much more.
3DPlay- An intuitive viewer where CAD models can be visualized, rotated, panned, sectioned, measured, and annotated
3DDrive- Securely store, manage, and share files with other designers for editing or for suppliers to preview
Collaborative Industry Innovator
The role provides the essential tools and apps so companies can easily manage and collaborate on any type of design or document on the cloud, in a single, convenient location with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
Part of the 3DEXPERIENCE® Works portfolio of products, it securely connects all stakeholders during all phases of the product lifecycle, providing time-saving, browser-based product data and lifecycle management tools.
Cloud-based Apps - Easily access apps in a user-friendly interface from any web browser with no installation required
Data-driven design - Managing designs online instead of locally gives you access to the most up-to-date information
Design Markup - Collaborative reviews in 2D and 3D. Effectively communicate design feedback with markups using text, circle, arrows and pictures
Compare Product Designs- Compare designs and product structures to readily identify differences between models or revisions
Collaboration and Data Management - Access up-to-date design data- share, create, modify, open, save revisions and delete content
Task Management - Create, assign, share and manage collaborative tasks with direct access to related content
3D Issue Management- Capture and document issues right on the 3D design to identify and resolve issues more quickly
