  • CATIA V5: Last Save Version & Release

    More often than not, CATIA V5 users save their models in the correct release. The release number is often defined after the version number, for example CATIA version 5, realease number 20 would be known as CATIA V5R20. It is important that users working in collaboration with customers, suppliers, and other users ensure that all models are saved in the same version and release of CATIA. CATIA is only backwards compatible, meaning that if the user saves a file in CATIA V5R20, they would no longer be able to open...
  • Design Data Management with CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE

    As with everything else with modern CAD, the goal is for you to stop thinking about your software and focus more on what you love – designing! That’s why CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE has not only improved the way you model, but also has eliminated the aggravation and hassle of organizing your CAD data. The problem is with files. Old CAD systems constantly require engineers to locate, validate, organize and...

  • Breaking down the barriers to Enterprise PLM

    Product Lifecycle Management software has long been regarded a disruptive technology for large organisations and whilst that may have been the case over the last 20+ years, more recent developments have started to change that reality. Whereas it was once the norm to carry out mass customisation to meet a business requirement, this can now be achieved with an array of industry solutions and out of the box functionality...
  • Supercharge CATIA V5 with the new "Power'By" 3DEXPERIENCE

    CATIA V5 has been revitalised for 2018 and beyond, with the introduction of “Power’By 3DEXPERIENCE” (available February 2018). In a nutshell, it is now possible to natively manage CATIA V5 data in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform (On-Cloud or On-Premise) using the same data structure as the 3DEXPERIENCE native apps (e.g. CATIA V6). This allows V5 customers to benefit from the performance and flexibility offered by...
  • 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.

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..
  • 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.....
  • 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...
