  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • New Option to ‘Hard Metal Machining’ in 3DEXPERIENCE 2017x

    Development of ‘Hard Metal Machining’ is continuing at a pace at Dassault Systemes, with the introduction of a new option for ‘Profile Contouring’. In versions before 3DEXPERIENCE R2017x, the option to select multiple radial cuts with a ‘concentric’ tool path style (used for Hard Metal cutting) was present but the user had to juggle the number of cuts required along with the depth of the radial cuts to make it clear the area required...
  • Changes In Aerospace Development Process Trends

    In addition to knowledge management, collaboration is another key aspect of today’s engineering world. Due to the aforementioned more complex and diverse engineering projects, the classic waterfall type of information flow is inadequate to successfully complete design projects within ever stricter time and resource constraints.....
  • Does the 3DEXPERIENCE platform beat BREXIT?

    The media like throwing logs on the fire of a good story and the supposed uncertainty of business life after BREXIT will become enflamed as more logs than most are thrown at as we, yes you and me, work our way through the next couple of years. Just the other week I was at the UK Intelligent Engineering Forum (which I had the dubious pleasure of organising) with more than a few friends, colleagues and partners...
  • How to Engrave Your CATIA V5 Model

    One of the most commonly asked questions by trainees on one of our CATIA V5 Fundamentals courses is “How do I put engraving on my model?” By this, they usually mean adding text in the form of a pad (emboss) or pocket (deboss) to permanently identify the part. A simple alpha-numeric text string on a flat surface either raised or embedded by a millimetre or so will suffice. CATIA V5 does not have this function built in as a directly available modelling feature....
