    Top 11 Features in the Latest 3DEXPERIENCE Update (FD07)

    September 21, 2021

    Due to the stay-at-home nature of many of our occupations now, maintaining a strong sense of communication between collaborators, manufacturers and clients is crucial. Whether it’s training new engineers to hit the ground running, find more flexible ways of accessing CAD tools or filling the need for an easy-to-use data management system, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform has tools for everyone. Because of the browser environment these new CAD applications are on, many of the user’s computer resources become freed up for other tasks.

    3DEXPERIENCE has been on a fantastic streak of updates, and the updates that come with FD07 are no different. To cover this update, we’ll go over new features that will continue to improve the user’s experience in  and develop a workflow that benefits teams in ways that desktop applications never could.

    Inserting Anchor Columns in GrabCAD Print

    September 17, 2021

    As more advanced and reliable solutions come to market to offset the percentage of a market owned by traditional manufacturing methods, additive manufacturing is consistently looked at with admiration. This new technology is currently positioned as a complement to subtractive manufacturing and will continue to do so until certain variables can be tamed with near-flawless accuracy and precision. One step closer to perfection is the addition of anchor columns in GrabCAD Print. Let's take a look at how this works.

    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 11: Wrap up using a 3DStory

    September 15, 2021

    Our 3DEXPERIENCE saw project is coming to a close, but we want to end it with a flourish to demonstrate the success we have experienced. We are using the 3DStory app to share those wins even when the recipient is not on the platform!

    When we think of product design, whether it’s creating something new or updating a previous version, we typically think of the CAD component. Just as important as creating the CAD components is having the ability to communicate our work effectively. This can be difficult to achieve in various CAD platforms because some programs allow you to only place text and pictures. The 3DStory app can help us put our work in the spotlight it deserves.

    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 10: Product Release Engineer

    September 14, 2021

    Now that our 3DEXPERIENCE circular saw project design is complete, we’ll see how we can use the Engineering Release xApp to finalize the information about the components, release the part files, and generate multiple Bills of Material. Files can be released individually or as an entire set and any created BOMs can be exported as a CSV file to be used in other processes in the engineering cycle.

    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 9: 3D Render

    September 13, 2021

    Using tools in the 3D Render Role, we can create photorealistic renders we can use to make great-looking marketing material as well as make more informed decisions on the aesthetics and form of our designs. Today in our 3DEXPERIENCE circular saw project, we are using xStudio xApp to take advantage of its browser environment to create a CAD rendering using a fine balance of efficiency, simplicity and quality that can be used on any device.

    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 8: Product Communicator

    September 10, 2021

    Communicating with the customer is key and we need to make sure that the instructions that accompany products are clear and concise. For this part of our 3DEXPERIENCE project, we are working on instructions that show the user how to remove the saw blade in order to clean or replace it. We will use xHighlight through the Product Communicator Role on the platform to generate technical illustrations that will be included in our User Manual.
