EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

On July 14, CATI is launching our 3DEXPERIENCE focused user group. The user group will meet on the second Wednesday each month, midday, to make it convenient for customers and enthusiasts to attend. You do not need to be a current CATI customer or 3DEXPERIENCE user to attend. All are welcome. Each session will consist of one or two presentations. Our 3DEXPERIENCE team will present topics and best practices related to the roles and applications available, and users are invited […]

SOLIDWORKS Feature Recognition When Importing SOLIDWORKS Files Into DELMIA – NC Shop Floor Programmer (NSR)

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

To Begin, go to SOLIDWORKS 2021, System Options, Hole Wizard/Toolbox, ‘Include data for DELMIA applications’.  Feature Recognition in DELMIA recognizes threaded hole data from imported SOLIDWORKS part files with hole wizard data when programming a machining process inside DELMIA.  When importing the SOLIDWORKS part file into DELMIA, have the system option checked to Include data for DELMIA applications.  When hole wizard holes are created in SOLIDWORKS and converted to the platform using the Derived Format Converter (UES) into DELMIA the […]

Saving Templates to the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Utilizing approved templates can standardize the CAD information your users create. For organizations that are implementing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, templates can be saved and shared through the organization’s 3DEXPERIENCE tenant. Both SOLIDWORKS and 3DEXPERIENCE SOLIDWORKS can create and access templates in the cloud, but they follow different workflows. On the organization’s cloud tenant, templates are saved to the Common Space. The Common Space is the default data vault on an organization’s tenant, and as such, its contents are available to […]

Accessing and Using Your Data in the Cloud with Bookmarks for 3DEXPERIENCE

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Storing data on the cloud is one of the most sought-after features organizations are looking for. We see the ability to access, manage, and share data through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is streamlining workflows and reducing overhead for our customers. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform stores data in a collaborative space A collaborative space is your data vault. Collaborative spaces can contain and control thousands upon thousands of files. Because of how they handle data, they are not organized with a folder structure […]

Back to the basics: Farming Intelligence on the 3D Experience Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

This blog is a follow up to my previous blog on navigating the 3D Experience Platform. You can find that blog linked here. In the previous blog we used the analogy of being a primitive hunter gatherer to the process of beginning work with the 3D Experience Platform. We looked at several ways to find and organize data on the platform, but we only made it so far. To carry on with my analogy, we have only barely made it […]

Mirror Body workaround for xShape in 3DEXPERIENCE

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Currently the xShape Sub-Divisional modeling app on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform does not have a command to Mirror Body.  This is a highly requested item, and hopefully is in the updates coming this year.  Until then however, you can still get the same results by using this workaround to mirror a body.  1.       Create the body you want to mirror  2.       Create a new Ordered Geometric Set  3.       Copy and Paste the original sub divisional body into the Ordered Geometrical Set […]

Top 3DEXPERIENCE xApp Enhancements in 2021x FD03

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

As new Functional Deliveries are released, we will present some of the top enhancements that can make designing and collaborating on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform with xDesign, xShape, and xSheetmetal, an even better experience. Request Access to Reserved Components One of the top product lifecycle management benefits of working in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is the ability to reserve a specific file (or group of files) and have the sole rights to make changes to those files while you have them reserved.

Common Workflows for Getting SOLIDWORKS Geometry INTO the 3DEXPERIENCE “xApps”

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

In the 3DExperience Platform, when we speak of an “xApp” we are referring to the xDesign, xShape, xSheetmetal apps (and more coming all the time) that run in a browser and are available anywhere, anytime, on any device. Today I am going to discuss some different workflows of getting CAD data into the 3DExperience “xApps”. Which method is the “best” all depends on what you need to do with it. Sometimes you may just be wanting to “build around” an […]

Back to the basics: Hunting and Gathering on the 3D Experience Platform

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Imagine the most primitive state of humankind. Most will probably come up with the hunter-gatherers prevalent before the advent of cities and agriculture. I’m no anthropologist by any means, but I feel like the people we refer to as “hunter gatherers” behaved as they did because they were unaware of many of the mechanics of how the world around them worked. To them it was easier to just grab what they could directly consume and move on. Now, for the […]

3D SheetMetal Creator: A 3DEXPERIENCE Design Tool

EmailFacebookLinkedInTwitterShare

Why? As the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is starting to grow, more design tools are being released. One such tools for sheet metal designers is the 3D SheetMetal Creator role that is available today. The question applies here, “ Why would I want to use this tool (aka role)?” Well it provides a browser-based solution with associative parametric sheet metal design capabilities. In so simple of terms, it allows you to build components, assemblies, and enclosures out of sheet metal without having […]
