Virtual vs Digital Twin, what is the difference?

Discover the difference between virtual vs digital twin with our on-demand webinar below:

What is a Virtual Twin?

Virtual Twin technology enables the creation of advanced virtual models of real-world products, facilities, assets, and processes powered by real-world data. It allows manufacturers to collaborate, model, optimize, and execute effectively. By simulating the outcomes of multiple scenarios within the virtual model, producers can establish the most effective strategies following their commercial and sustainability goals. 

What is a Digital Twin?

A digital twin is a virtual representation that serves as the real-time digital counterpart of a physical product, building, or process that includes both 3D models, simulation, and other related information. This technology is being used widely, across all industries, including simulating a space shuttle getting out of a building. By being able to test digitally, businesses can reduce risk, cost, and potential product/process failures.  

The difference between Virtual vs Digital Twin

Virtual twin experiences make it possible to visualize, model, and simulate the entire environment of a complex encounter. They encourage environmentally responsible business innovation throughout the product’s whole life cycle. 

A digital twin is just a digital representation of an item, a virtual copy of the original. Virtual twin experiences are substantially more potent than digital twins, and Dassault Systèmes gives them to our key clients in traditional industries, healthcare researchers, and individuals upgrading their houses. You can develop a 3D model of your environment using virtual twins, after which you can test and simulate it to guarantee that it is flawless. 

Virtual Twin Technology on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

You can quickly receive vital insights into the real-world performance of goods and processes by utilizing the Virtual Twin technology on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. The Virtual Twin technology allows you to improve operational resilience, reduce costs, and gain a competitive advantage with cloud-based manufacturing solutions.

A virtual model of a physical system is what’s known as the “virtual Twin Experience in the cloud.” This model updates the “digital twin” version of the system by incorporating real-world learning and experience. This closed-loop capability symbolizes the full and final realization of the benefits that gain from the convergence of the Virtual and Real Worlds.
