Understanding 3D CAD in a Post-Pandemic World

    April 18, 2022

    When the pandemic hit, it turned our understanding of how a workforce operates on its head. In the past we might have been used to a huge office building full of employees all working in close proximity to each other. However, in a post-pandemic world we are seeing a predominantly remote workforce that seems more connected than ever. Fortunately, the flexibility with our design tools has allowed the shift from in-person to primarily remote happen seamlessly.

    Sub-D Designing in xShape from Start to Finish

    April 14, 2022

    Subdivision modeling is a completely different workflow from your typical CAD with parametric dimensions and history-based feature trees. In this tutorial, I will walk through the steps of designing a new handle using sub-d designing in xShape from start to end.


    What is 3DEXPERIENCE?

    April 5, 2022

    “3DEXPERIENCE on the cloud provides you with a complete suite of industry-leading solutions which gives you everything you'll need to bring your idea to reality, including design & engineering, manufacturing & production, simulation, governance & collaboration.” - Dassault Systèmes

    The 3DEXPERIENCE Platform from Dassault Systèmes is a cloud-based collaborative environment built with design teams in mind. The Platform is an interconnected online ecosystem where your data management, collaboration and design tools are all housed in one common interface. The Platform hosts a portfolio of enterprise-class technologies including: SOLIDWORKS, CATIA, SIMULIA, DELMIA, and ENOVIA. In this article we will take a closer look at a few key traits of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform.
