TodCast #26 3DVIA becomes CATIA Composer

by

You probably noticed some changes when you got to 3DMOJO.

New logo and colors, whats up? You might say, “but I’m not a CATIA user.”  Not to worry, its all good 3DVIA Composer is now called CATIA Composer.  This is an exciting development which promises to be help for all Composer users.

CATIA is Dassault Systèmes’ pioneer brand. It is the world’s leading solution for product design and innovation. As Composer is professional content authoring software for the communication of engineering data, it makes sense to bring it into the CATIA family.

This transition allows us to access the latest CAD technologies, ensuring CATIA Composer is up to date with current versions and features of CATIA, while maintaining the openness that made 3DVIA Composer su...

3DVIA your iPod #64: ENOVIA SmarTeam Integration Sample

by

episode64-21.png

We are often asked about whether 3DVIA Composer can be integrated into a PDM or PLM system. The answer, of course, is a resounding “yes”. With the power of 3DVIA Sync Integration and our open XML architecture, our customers have been able to create very robust integrations to their business systems such as Agile, SmarTeam, ENOVIA VPM, and many others. And the best part is that they were able to complete those integrations very quickly.

Jonathan RIONDET was in Dassault Systèmes Russia last week and had the chance to meet Evgeniy FEDOTOV, one of the application engineers for ENOVIA SmarTeam. To prove how easy it is to integrate 3DVIA Composer into SmarTeam, he was able to insert our free 3DVIA Player ActiveX control into SmarTeam, to enable 3DVIA Player as the viewer for SmarTeam...

3DVIA your iPod #56: “Using CATIA V5 metadata in 3DVIA Composer”

by

3DVIA-Composer-podcast-for-cad-and-plm-users-episode-56-Using CATIA V5 metadata in 3DVIA Composer

It is a real pleasure to begin yet another year with a new amazing demonstration of the power of product information everyware, as implemented by 3DVIA Composer.

One of the questions I hear almost every time we talk to CATIA users is, “what about metadata?” How does 3DVIA Composer re-use this critical CAD data when I want to create compelling product documentation directly from my CATIA V5 3D CAD data?”

And it’s an important question because that metadata — data about the 3D CAD data — is critical to producing accurate assembly instructions, technical illustrations and more. If you can’t easily get the data about the data from the digital product definition into your deliverables, then a significant piece of effectively automating the documentation process would be missing.

As you can ...

Seemage your iPod #39: “Seemage BOM″

by

Seemage podcast for CAD and PLM users, episode 39, Seemage BOM

This week’s podcast shows in less than four minutes several amazing features of Seemage that we talk about all the time. Watch closely as Jonathan shows you how to combine BOM information with CAD models to produce very flexible documentation, including — and this always impresses me — technical illustrations directly from 3D CAD data.

This short podcast episode clearly shows why we believe there’s nothing else available that unites CAD, PLM, ERP and other enterprise systems as quickly, compatibly and easily as Seemage. In short, you can see major proof of our product information everware slogan right in this short video snippet.

If you’d like to see more, please register for a webinar replay here. Thanks for taking a look and donwloading this podcast.

Watch the Seemage webinar replay at your convenience

Watch the Seemage webinar

On July 19, we held a live webinar session that was very well-received. I sent a link to watch the Flash recording of the webinar to those who’d signed up for the live presentation but who weren’t able to attend.

And an amazing thing happened: in addition to the people who got a chance to watch the webinar they’d missed, we noticed that people to whom we had not sent the invite were watching the replay — and forwarding the link along to others to watch it .

So, we’re going to do the obvious: put the link up here in our blog. Please consider this an invitation to register for the replay, even if you didn’t previously sign up to watch the live presentation...

Seemage your iPod #38: “Seemage Update″

by

Seemage podcast for CAD and PLM users, episode 37, Seemage Update 

This week, Jonathan shows us one of the more astonishing capabilities of Seemage: the ability to update content with revised or changed geometry.

Because Seemage can quickly and easily integrate change into content, you never have to wait for the CAD changes or for a PLM system update to prepare product content. Instead of documenting the product when it’s “done” (if it ever really is), you can create content at any stage. Then, when the PLM and/or CAD system information is updated, simply update your Seemage content.

Consider the case where you are writing a service procedure in which a part has to be removed. Seemage makes it clear there a clash or other problem. You can easily make engineering aware of the service impact, then integrate the change as soon as it’s ready.

To see a...

Seemage your iPod #37: “Measurements in Seemage 4.2”

by

Seemage podcast for CAD and PLM users, episode 37: Measurements in Seemage 4.2

This week, Jonathan demonstrates (in less than 2 minutes!) how accurate and easy measurements are in Seemage. Pay special attention to the end of this podcast when Jonathan compares the Seemage measurements to the original measurements taken on the part in CATIA. As you would expect, they are identical. This demonstrates Seemage’s ability to accurately produce product deliverables in full fidelity to the original design.

Once again, there are two versions of this podcast: an AVI file (that requires the free TechSmith codec to play in Windows Media) and an iPod-formatted (and slightly smaller) version for our subscribers in iTunes.

Thanks again to Jonathan and we hope you enjoy the podcast.

Seemage your iPod #36: “Seemage 4.2 coordinate systems”

by

Seemage’s podcast for CAD and PLM users, episode 36: Seemage coordinate systems

This week, Jonathan Riondet shows us something new in Seemage 4.2: the ability to very flexibly manage coordinate systems. Using a CATIA V5 file, Jonathan imports the part directly into Seemage and then does some amazing things with the coordinate systems.

As has become our recent habit, I’ve posted both an .avi file which is both larger in size and bigger in resolution as well as a .m4v file, which iPod subscribers to our feed in iTunes can download directly onto their iPod.

We thank you for your interest in the new series of podcasts showing interesting capabilities in Seemage and, as always, welcome your comments.
