3DEXPERIENCE: Why Analysis in the Cloud is the Next Evolution of Digital Engineering

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Since the advent of PC computing, engineering has evolved into a hybrid science, a cooperation of man and digital machine. First was 2D computer drafting which eliminated the need for vellum paper. Then came 3D drafting, which allowed for full digital representations of geometry. Also, during this time, came the advent of advanced CNC manufacturing processes and G-code which allowed for translation from digital 3D to real life products. Other digital technologies like Model Based Definition (MBD), additive manufacturing, and […]

Creating Revisions with 3DEXPERIENCE PLM

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

There are several ways to generate new revisions with the 3DEXPERIENCE Data Management tools. Some manual and some fully automated. This is great because it gives each company the ability to be as simple or as complex as they want with their formal change process. Keep in mind that these capabilities could be limited to just certain users or groups of users, or could be opened up to anyone, all depending on how things are set by the platform administrator […]

Project Management on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Reduce resource and overall project execution costs by enabling lean optimized team planning along with delivering projects on-time and under budget. In today’s world, many companies still manage their main programs with resources from disconnected platforms for projects and authoring applications. With that process, their tends to be a lot of manual and time-consuming activities with lots of room for error that takes place. This data drives critical business decisions that can have a detrimental impact on the company and […]

Introduction to the Simulation Collaborator Role

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

There is probably no greater power on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform than the simulation roles. Granted, I may be a bit biased, but I do feel that the simulation capabilities are a big draw to the platform. I’ve covered lot of the capability of the simulation roles in several other blogs (see Fluid Cavities Analysis, SPH Particles, Phone Drop Test, and Simulation Steps), but today I would like to talk about a simulation-adjacent role: Simulation Collaborator. The Simulation Collaborator role is […]

Collaborative Designer for DraftSight Enhancements

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Many organizations are adopting DraftSight to create robust 2D CAD geometry. Among these organizations many are choosing DraftSight over their previous 2D CAD due to DraftSight being more affordable and that it can connect to the 3DEXPERIENCE cloud data-management platform. The Collaborative Designer for DraftSight and 3DEXPERIENCE connects your DraftSight software, your colleagues, and your data, without the need to set up and maintain a local database. With the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, Dassault Systèmes, together with SOLIDWORKS, protects and backs up […]

The Benefits of Connecting with 3DEXPERIENCE Visualize

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Professional and 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS Premium both include 3DEXPERIENCE Visualize Professional. As a point of comparison, the desktop version of SOLIDWORKS Professional and Premium, on subscription, include only a seat of Visualize Standard. In Visualize Standard you can create photo-quality static images with ease. Visualize Professional contains all the features and functionality within Visualize Standard, plus it includes advanced capabilities such as a full animation suite, user-defined lighting, a rendering queue and lots more. For more information on Visualize, […]

Requirements on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Quality Design Methodology: Implementing Traceable Requirements to drive a robust and efficient design process. Quality designs start with requirements. Requirements are the specifications that we design to. Written, verbal or implied, requirements give us the baseline to know when our designs are complete or ready to release/manufacture. Requirements are one of the base pillars of the MBSE (Model Based Systems Engineering) design methodology. Requirements usually come from 3 sources: Government (or regulatory), Stakeholders and Indirect (“INPUTS” shown above). Regulatory Requirements […]

Dashboard Sharing on 3DEXPERIENCE

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

CATI does a lot of 3DEXPERIENCE platform implementations and one of our biggest goals is helping users get up to speed on working in the platform as quickly as possible. This is key during this implementation phase. This is where we like to push a dashboard template to users with the same job functions.  A good example would be CAD users. We try to give them a dashboard layout that works for them. That includes functions for navigation, exploration, and […]
