  • Strictly Come Engineering – the Modern Partnership

    If you are working in a modern engineering business using the latest tools, cracking the impossible problems and delivering market leading products and services then you’ll be familiar with the latest technologies designed to optimise your engineering. These technologies deliver; analysis and realistic simulation to designers so that they can quickly appraise and validate new concepts, collaboration (real time) with anyone/anywhere and are able to present and utilise your most valuable...
  • How Will You Find Your Unique Advantage in Big Data?

    Since the emergence of the Internet of Things and the exponential growth of items producing data, discussions and thoughts of how organisations will adapt to locate their advantage in a future characterised by big data has been a heavily discussed topic on the internet. As we know, big data essentially is large volumes of data either structured, unstructured stored by organisations to manage, measure and analyse. Within more recent times, more and more of our daily activities have shifted towards the internet....
  • 3DEXPERIENCE on Windows 10 (with 4K screens)

    Despite being released in the age of Windows 10, 3DXPERIENCE 2015x is not officially supported on Windows 10. And as Windows 7 reaches the end of its life, it may be necessary to find an alternative. Luckily, it is possible to run 2015x on Windows 10, if you are willing to sacrifice some display quality. . Additionally, because many new high-end Windows 10 workstation laptops have 4K screens, these problems can also occur on later versions of 3DEXPERIENCE....
  • My 3DEXPERIENCE Experience

    This summer I have been working as an Intern for Intrinsys & Integral Powertrain as a Design Engineer. I’ve recently completed my first year at the University of Portsmouth where I’m currently studying BEng Mechanical Engineering. Before starting at Intrinsys, I completed their CATIA V5 Fundamentals Training Course. This was extremely useful, as I only had previous experience using CATIA alongside very basic Autodesk AutoCAD. Naturally, I felt a little nervous jumping straight into...
  • Cannot save CATIA V5 files open in your CATIA session?

    Ever had an issue where CATIA refuses to save your file(s) that is/are open in your current CATIA session? Does the error below look familiar? The most probable cause for this error is that the original file opened in session has been deleted from its original location. For example, in the above case: The file is currently open in the CATIA Session. However when browsing to the location listed in the error message (where the original file was opened from), you can see it is missing...
  • Create a Customised Drawing Border in 3DEXPERIENCE

    The standard ‘Out of the box’ Drawing Borders in 3DEXPERIENCE provide a basic solution for adding a frame and title block to a Drawing. The functionality will add a template to the background view and further options are provided to add a revision ladder, assign a checker/designer, as well as resizing and deleting the template. The majority of information on the title block without automated functionality can be edited by accessing the background view.....
  • Inheriting Surface Colours of Surface Based Features in 3DEXPERIENCE

    Within 3DEXPERIENCE, it is possible to allow solid-based features to inherit the colours of the surface-based features used to create them. For example, if a pink surface is sewn onto a grey solid body, the part body can be set to be unaffected and remain grey. Alternatively, the part body can be set to inherit the colour of the surface and become pink. The default behaviour of 3DEXPERIENCE in this respect can be set within Preferences...
  • Manage DSLS Licence Authorisations

    If you have a large pool of licences available on a single DSLS licence server, then it often becomes more difficult to manage the licences available. For example in CATIA V5, a single user can select all available licences. The problem with this is that the user can consume several licences in one session of CATIA when in reality the user only requires a single licence. In the DSLS Licence Administration Tool you can set authorisations on each licence to...
  • CATIA V5 to 3DEXPERIENCE Transition: Creating a Revision from Saved As Geometry

    When using CATIA V5, the 'Save As' option can be used for creating a copy of an object which can then be used independently from the original file, often to evaluate different options during the development process. Sometimes, it is desirable to use one of these 'saved as' objects as the next new revision of the original product. 1) Search for both parts in 3DEXPERIENCE...
  • CATIA V5 to 3DEXPERIENCE Transition: Save As Function For Duplication

    When using CATIA V5, the 'Save As' option can be used for creating a copy of an object which can then be used independently from the original file, often to evaluate different options during the development process. Sometimes, it is desirable to use one of these 'saved as' objects as the next new revision of the original product. In 3DEXPERIENCE, the 'Save As' option is available in the “Save with Options…” drop-down menu...
