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 […]

12 Days of InFlow – 3DExperience Platform

Introduction to the 3DExperience Platform On my last blog of the series and closer than ever to Christmas, I’ve decided to focus on the foundation of the 3DExperience Platform. There are hundreds of different things we can discuss. However, understanding the fundamentals of the platform is key before we start elaborating on its different tools. Most of the 3DExperience capabilities were derived from ENOVIA, a high end product life-cycle management solution offered by Dassault Systèmes. This cloud enabled collaboration will […]

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 […]

Transition from CATIA V5-6 to 3DEXPERIENCE: At First Glance

3DEXPERIENCE is Dassault Systèmes’s answer to the ever-growing and ever-demanding marketplace of today. While the main difference between Dassault’s CATIA V5-6 and 3DEXPERIENCE is their adaptation of a Cloud-Based & Data-Driven platform, there are some significant changes to their 3D Modeling Interface layout as well. We will cover those differences here. Upon opening the platform, you immediately notice that the interface has been completely re-vamped and has adapted a more sleek and modern look. CATIA V5 Interface 3DEXPERIENCE Interface Another […]
