Academic-specific limitations

Digital tagging (also known as "watermarking")

Files produced by the academic version of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform may be digitaly marked preventing their usage onto a commercial installation.


The realistic simulation applications that are part of this role include the same functions as our commercial codes.

Model sizes are limited to 250,000 nodes for structural and plastics models, and 1,000,000 nodes for computational fluid dynamics simulations. User subroutines are not supported.

Jobs must be executed on the same machine as the open Graphical User Interface (GUI).

Parallel processing: Role includes support for execution on up to 4-cores for structures and plastics and 8-cores for fluids. Increased parallelization is not available.

Immersive capabilities

Immersive Visual Experience (IHD) tokens are not available in academic environments to support immersive walls and caves.

Head Mounted Devices do not require the use of IHD tokens in academic environments.

Project Planner

The Project Planner applications are exclusively available on the cloud.
