3DEXPERIENCE Learning and Support

3DEXPERIENCE Learning Resources

3DEXPERIENCE is powerful and transformative software, so learning to make the most of it isn’t trivial. Thankfully, Dassault Systèmes and CATI provide plenty of resources on the path to proficiency:

  • Official and custom-tailored classroom training
  • Online training courses on the Learning Space
  • CATI’s quick-response technical support
  • Extensive official documentation
  • Dassault Systèmes Knowledge Base of supplemental materials, technical articles, and support tickets
  • CATI simulation mentorship programs
  • CATI consultative methodology development


Computer Aided Technology (CATI) has been implementing solutions on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform since 2012. No one has more experience when it comes to 3DEXPERIENCE Platform solutions, especially when it comes to implementing the platform with SOLIDWORKS or CATIA.

Watch this video to learn more about why companies choose to partner with CATI for 3DEXPERIENCE solutions and get started today.
