New 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight Data Management capabilities

3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight connects your preferred 2D CAD solution to the cloud for access to new data management (and design) capabilities.


With 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight you can securely save and access DraftSight CAD data from the Cloud.

Review tasks and open design data on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform without leaving DraftSight. Design on the fly with web-based mark-ups using your CAD files for team review and analysis, scale cloud storage, track drawings, and projects, manage tasks and find the right file every time.

The ability to manage product data throughout its lifecycle is a proven tactic organizations use to effectively plan, design, manufacture, and manage their products — all the way from concept to product delivery. While data management tools have been around for decades, new cloud-based data management solutions are opening the door to increased flexibility and convenience, while also decreasing upfront costs and ongoing IT investments for organizations. Built-in revision and change control make it easy to release your products and collaborate with stakeholders to get their valuable feedback. You can also check in on designs and access the data you need from any device and from anywhere.

Bringing your key stakeholders together

3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight is part of the 3DEXPERIENCE Works portfolio of cloud solutions, bringing all your key stakeholders together on a single collaborative platform. Once you connect to the platform, you are connected to multiple purpose-built solutions through your role. 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight is part of the Design/Engineering role, enabling designers to create and share designs quickly and easily, and allowing key stakeholders to give feedback throughout the product development phase with all the design data stored securely in the cloud.

3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight enables you to manage drawing files and data on the cloud in a collaborative environment connected with DraftSight. Your designs can now be stored online, easily reused, and securely managed. Data cannot be lost or deleted accidentally.

Make Better Decisions Faster

With all the data in the same place, everyone has real-time access to a single source of truth. This helps teams avoid the risk of being out of sync on drawing revisions.

Connect the right people with real-time information and the right tools—on one unified platform—to make better decisions faster. From concept to reality.
