Unleashing the Power of 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight for Data and Project Management

3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight is a cloud-based solution for designing, managing, and sharing data and drawings. It busts common myths about data management and project management, making it easier for technical teams to collaborate.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is designed to address the common challenges that arise when managing the process between creating a drawing and its full release. In large projects, such as hospitals or airports where the volume of drawings can be overwhelming, ensuring that the right people have access to the info they need and obtaining the necessary approvals can be challenging. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform solves these problems by connecting people, data, and ideas into a single collaborative ecosystem that offers structured and unstructured collaboration.

Users can use DraftSight to manage data, create new revisions, and track the maturity of their drawings. With just one click, they can save their drawings directly to the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The platform also offers powerful tools for tracking tasks and managing projects. All of the work done in the cloud is reflected in the desktop application in real time, keeping users connected and in sync throughout the project process.

Streamlining Construction and Development Projects for Placetailor and Columbia Construction

Placetailor is a construction and development company focused on future housing. They recently shared how they used the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to effectively communicate and exchange data between their teams. The platform enabled them to easily upload large files and videos to show progress, share agendas and meeting minutes, and track tasks.

The wiki page feature was especially useful, as it allows users to go back in time and review conversations, comments, and concerns that were shared by outside team members. In addition, the platform allows them to send out notifications and manage the project timeline in cases where the project had to be postponed due to a power outage.

Columbia Construction is another company that used the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to manage a large chiller unit project located on the roof of the Waltham, Massachusetts campus. The platform was user-friendly and allowed them to easily communicate with their team members and stakeholders. They were able to hit tight deadlines, stay on budget, and collect valuable data that can be used for future projects.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform combines the power of DraftSight with the collaborative lifecycle app to give organizations the ability to manage their data, projects, and content. It enables users to manage CAD files, as well as PDFs, documents, images and more.

Young Industries Finds Cost-Effective Solutions with DraftSight 2D CAD

Young Industries has been in business since 1947, designing and manufacturing material handling equipment and custom made-to-order solutions for customers in the chemical, pharmaceutical and food industries. The design and engineering team is made up of six to seven engineers who specialize in problem-solving and creating unique products. DraftSight was selected as the 2D CAD solution to replace the company’s previous product and was seamlessly integrated with its existing 3D modeling software and PDM.

The intuitive design of DraftSight has allowed the team to quickly transition and benefit from its cost and flexibility. They now use it for plant layouts, process and identification (P&ID) diagrams, legacy drawings and even renderings for proposals. With DraftSight, Young Industries can more effectively communicate and collaborate with its customers and vendors to quickly solve its unique problems and create the best possible solutions.


In addition to its benefits, 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight offers a variety of resources and tutorials to help users master the fundamentals and explore the latest features of the software. Its user-friendly platform helps improve efficiency and save time, thereby increasing business and improving quotation accuracy. Users can visit the website and YouTube channel for more information about the platform. Watch the full session on 3DEXPERIENCE DraftSight on-demand.
