Dewoitine D520 in 3DVIA Composer!



With apologies to our bilingual friends who have already seen this in a previous post, I am pleased to present to you a sample 3DVIA Composer file created by Laurent BEAUVAIS, a PLM Dassault Systèmes Consultant and also a big fan of fighter planes.

With his digital mockup of the Dewoitine D520 plane, Laurent created this assembly sequence during the weekend right after his first introduction to the product. (I especially like the part about how our users enjoy using 3DVIA Composer so much, that they like to use it in their spare time!)

That’s enough talking… click on the link below to download and explore this self executable file...

3DVIA your iPod #60: “Using 3DVIA Sync Integration to programmatically update your product deliverables”


In a previous podcast, you watched Jonathan use 3DVIA Sync to automatically update his product deliverables. It is a very powerful demonstration, and I encourage you to watch it again.

This week, you will see a similar demonstration, but with a very key difference: all of the CAD conversion and publishing to 2D formats is done using 3DVIA Sync Integration. Using scripting and XML job file definitions, 3DVIA Sync Integration offers a powerful way to equip your PLM systems with the ability to automatically trigger the creation of 3DVIA Composer files and publish them into several deliverable formats.

Most importantly, with 3DVIA Sync Integration your PLM system can take engineering modifications and perform incremental updates to the 3DVIA Composer content, re-publish your deliverables, and...

Dewoitine D520 dans 3DVIA Composer



Nous avons le plaisir de vous présenter la dernière animation de BEAUVAIS Laurent, Consultant PLM Dassault Systèmes mais aussi passionné de maquettes et aviation.

Sa maquette numérique du Dewoitine D520 en poche, Laurent s’est lancé dans l’expérience 3DVIA Composer juste après une première formation. Un week end plus tard il nous proposait l’animation du montage de la maquette du célèbre avion.

Mais trêve de bavardage, je vous laisse plutôt télécharger et explorer cet exécutable !

3DVIA your iPod #58: “3DVIA Safe, Part 2”



In Episode #54, Jonathan introduced 3DVIA Safe, and demonstrated how Secure 3D can be used to protect your intellectual property from reverse engineering. This week’s podcast shows another capability of 3DVIA Safe: “Right Manager”. Right Manager enables 3DVIA Composer authors to enable or disable certain functions in the 3DVIA Player.

Imagine if you had the flexibility to allow one 3DVIA Player user the ability to create cross-sections but not labels, or another user the ability to take measurements but not save them, or another user to only open the file for the next 10 days. With the Right Manager options of 3DVIA Safe, this flexibility becomes a reality. And not only can you set these options from within 3DVIA Composer, if you watch the previous podcast again, you will see Jon...

3DVIA your iPod #57: “Using 3DVIA Sync to automatically update product deliverables”


3DVIA your iPod #57: “Using 3DVIA Composer Sync to automatically update product deliverables”

In any video program — podcast or network television — there’s occasionally a “can’t miss” episode. Number 57 — this episode — is one of those must see episodes.

In just about five minutes, this episode really puts it all together for you. Watch it over and over again to see the subtleties of what is going on and you’ll get the full understanding of what we mean by product information everyware.

In just a few minutes, Jonathan Riondet shows content creation, creating several deliverables so easily that it looks like one smooth motion. Then he shows how those deliverables can be automatically updated when the underlying product definition changes, such as when the CAD information changes. Of course, this data can be managed by a PLM system. And remember, we mean any 3D...

Let your voice be heard!


For many of us, today is the first day back from the holidays. To start the New Year, we have implemented a personal blogging tool in our 3DMojo forum. Now you can write your very own blog, and we’d like to hear about your daily, weekly, or monthly thoughts about all things 3D.

So head over to our 3DMojo forum, and start blogging! Tell us how you’re using 3DVIA Composer, or about how you are using 3D data in your current job, or heck, feel free to write about your pet gerbil! The more people participate and share their thoughts, ideas, and suggestions, the more everyone can benefit from our growing 3DMojo community.

All the best for 2009!

3DVIA your iPod #55: “3DVIA Composer data sheet


This 3DVIA Composer screenshot shows how users can work in 3D and produce all the deliverables they need, including 2D line art…as compared to 2D-based tools like PTC Arbortext IsoDraw

This week, I am putting a new data sheet for 3DVIA Composer into the podcast feed instead of our usual video “vignette”.

I wanted to make sure everyone has an opportunity to see it, as it contains the first screenshots we have published with the 3DVIA Composer UI. Past PDFs we have put into the podcast feed have been extremely popular.

The blog and podcast will return in early 2008. Until then, everyone at 3DVIA wishes you and yours a happy holiday season.
