Getting Started with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is a business experience platform that provides transparent data and lifecycle management. You can search, save, manage, and share files, in collaborative spaces on the platform in the cloud.

Two product offerings, 3DEXPERIENCE CONNECTOR for DraftSight and DraftSight Connected, are available for DraftSight Professional and DraftSight Premium. Both offerings provide access to all the 3DEXPERIENCE services and apps that you are entitled to use based on your role.


This app lets you continue to use the DraftSight application that is installed on your computer. When you install the app, it appears as the 3DEXPERIENCE tab in DraftSight.

This offering provides a lightweight connection between your DraftSight application and the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. You can manage data and lifecycle operations in the app. You can also navigate and browse to communities and social collaborative apps.

DraftSight Connected

This offering installs a full version of the DraftSight application on your computer from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It gives you extended capabilities on the platform and when you are online and connected, it gives you the flexibility to work anywhere and at any time.

DraftSight Professional

This app contains the same DWG capabilities of the individual DraftSight Professional, but it adds online collaborations on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It is installed, launched, and licensed from the 3DEXPERIENCE platform
