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 As such, using a disconnected storage solution is outdated.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 […]

Navigating Large Assemblies in 3DEXPERIENCE with Explore Mode

CATIA has always been known for its ability to efficiently design in the context of large and data-intensive assemblies. Luckily, Dassault has passed down these abilities to its new platform, 3DEXPERIENCE. However, with the ability to design the entirety of a large assembly in one place, there comes the challenge of finding parts that directly affect, or are in the proximity of the part you’re working on. To do so would require the ability to view the entire assembly and […]
