This opens new ways to create and refine engaging customer experiences faster.

3DEXPERIENCE platform users including industrial designers, mechanical engineers, marketers, project managers, manufacturing planners and other decision makers in any industry, can plug and play an HTC Vive Business Edition head-mounted display and work at their desktop with natural navigation in a stereoscopic virtual reality environment. This new way to access, view and explore a native virtual model on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform during product development delivers an enhanced spatial impression for a deeper understanding of an object’s depth, solidness and design that cannot be achieved with a computer screen alone. 

“Virtual reality has transcended consumer applications and is now establishing its strategic value for more informed decision-making in business,” said Olivier Ribet, Vice President High-tech Industry, Dassault Systèmes. “Virtual reality paired with our industry solution experiences on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform provides a new and intuitive way to push the boundaries of creativity. Designers and engineers can facilitate the convergence of product aesthetics and technical requirements while a marketer can better influence the user experience for more personal and emotional impact.”

“The Vive Business Edition allows Dassault Systèmes’ customers to use virtual reality at a large scale at low cost,” said Hervé Fontaine, Vice President Virtual Reality Enterprise and Business Development, HTC. “With the Vive’s laser tracking system providing sub-millimetre precision and very low latency, it is an ideal fit for Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA applications users who can now check their work in real time as they modify their design.”

Virtual reality on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform supported by the HTC Vive Business Edition furthers the collaboration between Dassault Systèmes and HTC to drive virtual reality into the enterprise space. In April 2016, the two companies announced plans to showcase the HTC Vive and 3DEXPERIENCE applications for business and government at select global events.

Dassault Systèmes will unveil the immersive virtual reality experience at CES in Las Vegas January 5-8, 2017, at its booth #42530 in halls A-C, level 2.
