  • Microsoft Windows 10 Compatibility with 3DEXPERIENCE

    Dassault Systèmes (DS) have certified various levels of CATIA V5, CATIA 3DEXPERIENCE and various other DS applications on Microsoft Windows 10. However, what is not obvious is that it is only certified on certain build levels of Windows 10. This means that if you allow your Windows 10 to update automatically, or if your local IT department push out Windows 10 on your behalf, this could potentially be harmful to your DS applications.
  • 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...
  • 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...
  • 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....
