Organized by Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE World 2020 event stood true to its new name and presented the entire set of solutions from the company. Earlier known as SOLIDWORKS World, this year’s edition brought together 6,000 designers, engineers, entrepreneurs and business leaders from around the world at Music City Center in Nashville, Tennessee. A glimpse from the event…

The maiden 3DEXPERIENCE World was built on the 20-year legacy of Dassault Systèmes’ SOLIDWORKS World event that was dedicated to the 3D design and engineering community. The event introduced SOLIDWORKS users to new strategies for business innovation through discussions and demonstrations of 3DEXPERIENCE WORKS and the company’s portfolio of digital applications on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for collaborative design to manufacturing.


Evolving manufacturing

Gian Paolo Bassi, Chief Executive Officer, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes, opened the show with the theme ‘To be human is to




dream’, and welcomed DELMIA, SIMULIA, and ENOVIA solutions to the event. Bernard Charlès, Vice Chairman of the Board of Directors & CEO, Dassault Systèmes, then shared how Dassault can prepare for future, recalling the transition from
2D to 3D, and about the progress and evolution of technology and setting the stage for the spot-light topic – the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. He put it simply, “We are changing the way we collaborate on projects and the way we manufacture.”

In sync, Bassi shared, “On the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, everything and everyone involved in the concept, design, simulate, manufacture, sell, and service processes are connected and integrated in one continuous loop. Of course, our SOLIDWORKS customers can continue to work on the standalone SOLIDWORKS desktop version if they prefer, but our new option will free up time to think, create, and get things done.”

Inspiring sessions

The most awaited segment of the event is always the keynote sessions that bring forth success stories of grit and gumption. This edition was graced by the presence and insightful stories of the company’s customers, innovators and partners such as Sam Rogers, Additive Design Lead & Jet Suit Pilot, Gravity Industries; Mikael Kajbring, CTO, Awake, makers of the Awake electric surfboard; Mike Schultz, Founder of performance Prosthetic Manufacturer, BioDapt; Matt Carney of the MIT Media Lab Biomechatronics Group; Charles Adler, Co-founder & Former Head of Design, Kickstarter.com, Kickstarter and many more.


In the 3DEXPERIENCE Play-ground (previously Partner Pavilion), the spotlight was on Magic Wheelchair, a non-profit organization that builds costumes for kids, and BioDapt that designs and manufactures high-performance lower limb prosthetic components used
for action sports and other similar activities.

3D printing

Several announcements were made by significant players in the 3D printing sector such as Stratasys launching
its J826 printer which is based on PolyJet technology and offers all the capabilities of the J8 series including Pantone-validated colors and a range of materials such as VeroUltraClear that allows to prototype for glass, clear polymers, or transparent packaging.

RIZE and Sindoh announced a strong partnership to expand opportunities for safe and sustainable 3D printing. The companies revealed that the first step in their collaboration would be to integrate the RIZIUM portfolio of materials, known for their zero emissions, sustainability and durability, into the desk-top 2X and the industrial 7X printers from Sindoh.

Dassault Systèmes and Xometry Partner

Xometry is Dassault Systèmes’ first ‘prime partner’ - a new category of partners providing buying experiences to users of MAKE Market-place, the latter’s on-demand manufacturing service. This new category recognizes qualified service providers having industrial-grade quality certifications, and production capacities to answer demanding needs as well as high satisfaction rates. Engineers can get their designs made faster with instant access to Xometry part manufacturing price quotes without leaving SOLIDWORKS and CATIA design environments.
