  • Having JAVA Security issues when trying to access Online Documentation?

    Ever since the introduction of Java 7 updates 25, people have been having problems with accessing the Online Documentation provided by Dassault Systemes. For those not aware, Online Documentation is essentially help files for the suite of Dassault Systeme products. In fact, it is more than just help files, they are a sort of tutorials. Don’t let the word ‘Online’ fool you, they can either be access locally or on the network....
  • CATIA V5 Drawing crashing when creating a view

    Is your CATIA crashing whenever you attempt to create a new drawing view of a large assembly? Does the progress bar freeze without completing? If so, there are a few settings that you can change to improve your chances of getting the drawing you need. ‘Exact View’ is the default view generation setting, which is created from the exact geometry available in the Design mode..
  • 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....
  • Functional Tolerancing & Annotation: A workbench for CATIA

    Model-Based Engineering defines an approach to engineering that uses models that function as the technical baseline for a project and support the product throughout its full life cycle. Established at the conceptualisation of a product, the models are set up to define the product requirements and then subsequently to perform analysis and simulate processes, to specify design details and to validate and verify the...
  • 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...
