Part Numbering – 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Part Numbering in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform In my time working with Engineering groups, I have seen a lot of different ways of numbering parts. One thing that’s always true is that this is a passionate topic. Engineers debate this topic constantly. Should we use serial numbers? Maybe smart part numbering techniques to better describe the components? The debate never ends. This is especially true when we talk about part numberings in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform. This topic itself is not super […]

Issue Management on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. We’re getting ready to release our new drone design. We gave it new propellers, improved the design of the body, and installed a better battery. Things are going great, but we’ve got a few issues to fix. I put a comment on the markup and shoot the engineer an email to request the changes. After a week, it doesn’t look like anything’s changed. When I ask what’s going on, my engineer tells […]

Collaborative Industry Innovator – 3DEXPERIENCE

3DEXPERIENCE – Collaborative Industry Innovator The 3DEXPERIENCE platform is an innovative cloud solution that grows with you. It’s governed by roles and apps. Additionally, each additional role gives you access to several apps. Therefore, purchasing additional roles adds more capability to your system. Of course, like any other data management system, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has its base requirements. Last time we spoke, we talked about one of the basic roles on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, the Collaborative Business Innovator Role. This […]

ENOVIA – Compare – 3DExperience Platform

The 3DExperience platform has hundreds of different applications we could write about. With every release, it becomes increasingly hard to pick a specific topic to drill down into. Recently, we discussed what the platform is and what it does. This time around, we are diving deeper into an existing comparison tool which is often overlooked. ENOVIA’s “Compare”, inside the 3DExperience platform allows users to differentiate two distinct versions of a certain file. For instance, how do we determine the difference […]

Custom Drafting Standards in 3DEXPERIENCE

While using 3DEXPERIENCE, some companies may find it beneficial to set standards that all users must adhere to. In Drafting, users can manage and configure standards such as ISO, ASNI_ASME, JIS, or custom enterprise-wide standards. These standards define drafting elements like annotation, dimensions, dress-up, etc. In this demonstration, we will show how to create a custom set of standards and how to distribute them as a default option across an enterprise. We are only focusing on Drafting in this demonstration […]

3DExperience Add-In to SOLIDWORKS 2020

This holiday season, InFlow decided to post daily updates on a snapshot of our daily operations. With that in mind I decided to create a post detailing the new 3DExperience platform add-in to SOLIDWORKS 2020. Today, the internet of things is driving us towards extremely connected systems. As such, using a disconnected storage solution is outdated. In order to bridge the gap between the status quo and high-end PLM solutions, SOLIDWORKS has created the 3DExperience platform. The platform leverages existing […]
