What is the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace?
As a leading 3D design software provider, it’s only natural that Dassault Systèmes would further leap into the additive manufacturing ecosystem, and it has done so with the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace.
The 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace by Dassault Systèmes is a comprehensive group of services that cover almost every aspect of a product’s life cycle, from design and engineering to manufacturing, sales, and more. These numerous, diverse services can be found under three main segments:
- 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make
- 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Part Supply
- 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Engineering
With the above, Dassault Systèmes aims to provide a fully-fledged business experience where each process fits into an integrated and intuitive workflow. Today, we will be zooming into the Make service of the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace, where you can obtain instant quotes and order certified, traceable parts.
A closer look at 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make

CNC machining, 3D printing, and more
One of the marketplace’s key advantages is its diversity. While many additive manufacturing services only or mainly have 3D printing to offer, the 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make ecosystem lets you choose between other important production techniques as well.
3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make’s arsenal of manufacturing methods namely comprises of:
- 3D printing
- CNC machining

Software add-ins (SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, …)
Dassault Systèmes has developed a dedicated 3DEXPERIENCE Marketplace Make add-in for several of their software suites. With the add-in, engineers and designers can instantly obtain quotes during the modeling process when using SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, eDrawings, or Draftsight.
You are able to simultaneously adjust designs and see how much or how little the changes impact a specific part or prototype’s price. The add-in also lets you reach out to service providers for advice and discuss orders.
