    What is Advanced Manufacturing?

    December 1, 2021

    As technology continues to advance, industries have found new ways of integrating these technologies to improve their manufacturing processes. Traditional manufacturing has been based on the use of dedicated production lines, which limits the flexibility that these manufacturing processes can have. Through advanced manufacturing, companies are making use of technologies and techniques to gain a competitive edge. In order to achieve this level of competitiveness and flexibility, one must understand how the wide spectrum of relevant technologies available can be integrated towards a focused goal.


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 5: Sheet Metal Creator

    September 7, 2021

    We are continuing with our 3DEXPERIENCE platform circular saw project by tackling the design of the base plate. The current design is fairly simple, consisting of a flat sheet metal plate. For the redesign, we are going to take advantage of some of the tools available inside of the xSheetMetal xApp in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to add some features and complexity to the part, while ensuring manufacturability.


    Cloud-Based 3D Design with xApps - Part 2: Project Planner

    September 2, 2021

    The success of any project starts with a good plan and a team that understands what that plan is. In this second part of our cloud-based design series, we will cover how the Project Planning application on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform can assist us in ensuring the success of our projects through better data visibility, improved collaboration and purpose-built project management applications. With the right tools, your team can collaborate securely with a task-specific file repository, activity stream, real-time summary charts, real-time notifications, a schedule to help meet project constraints and resources and much more!

    How to 3D Print from 3DEXPERIENCE

    December 21, 2020

    Additive manufacturing technology has opened up possibilities for product design that only a few years ago were not even possible. Similarly, the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes has opened up possibilities for product development we didn’t have a few years ago. By leveraging the two together, we can take advantage of the collaboration, analysis, and on-demand capabilities available to make our designs and prototypes better and quicker than ever before. In this blog, we are going to explore the different tools and solutions available (at the moment) to print your 3D designs inside of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.
