“With 3DLive, Dassault Systèmes is introducing its next generation of online 3D applications, which will use 3D as a powerful online media to expand collaborative product innovation communities,” says Dominique Florack, senior executive vice president, product - R&D, Dassault Systèmes. 3DLive is a revolutionary lightweight solution composed of ‘live’ applications that broaden the collaborative nature of PLM, first available for CATIA, ENOVIA and DELMIA.


“3DLive is a truly revolutionary solution that offers benefits never before envisioned in product development and team collaboration,” explains Al Bunshaft, vice president, IBM PLM Solutions. “The power to conceptualize, develop and deliver products in a shared environment over the Web presents enormous possibilities for customers seeking an advantage in the fast-paced and ultra-competitive markets where they do business.”
