TodCast #27 CATIA Composer Moto Demo



Here is just a few possible use cases for CATIA Composer showing some nice examples in Sales and Marketing, Quality Assessment, Customer Support and Services, Manuals and Technical Documentation, and Engineering and Manufacturing using imported PMI from CATIA.

BTW,  We are still looking for customer demo videos, possible tips or any other Composer skills you would like to highlight. One Customer has just submitted one and I’ll be posting it soon.

Come on, lets see what you got, show off your skills impress your co-workers.

TodCast #26 3DVIA becomes CATIA Composer


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 3D Communication Strategy Forum


At this year’s Dassault Systèmes Customer Conference (DSCC 2011), we will be launching our first-ever strategy forum for 3DVIA.

Click here for more details about the forum and DSCC.

3DVIA 3D Communication Strategy Forum – November 10, 2011

Immediately following DSCC 2011, 3DVIA will be hosting the 3D Communication Strategy Forum. This half-day event is designed to promote an open dialogue and exchange of ideas between 3DVIA product leaders and industry representatives who are interested in exploring the use of 3D product communications.

Open to all Dassault Systemes’ customers attending DSCC, the forum will provide attendees with a detailed 3DVIA brand and product strategy, along with an exclusive preview of upcoming 3DVIA mobile and cloud solutions...

3DVIA Composer Breaks Down Communication Barriers


In case you missed it, here is a press release from our SolidWorks team that mentions how 3DVIA Composer is being used by “Design That Matters” to help their efforts in developing countries:

Design that Matters, a non-profit product design group, used 3DVIA Composer to develop high-quality visuals of a phototherapy device to treat jaundiced infants in developing countries. The images enabled the design team to quickly gather feedback from, and gain acceptance by physicians in Vietnam, where it would initially be produced and used in hospitals that may not be able to afford traditional western machines.

Talk about global collaboration! That’s the power of interactive 3D — overcoming international language and cultural barriers:

“We are dealing with a different language, culture, and fina...

3DVIA Composer is Desktop Engineering’s Pick of the Week!


DE Pick of the Week

Check it out! Click here for a nice review by Desktop Engineering.

A quote from the author, Anthony Lockwood:

…3DVIA Composer is, of course, more than a tool to interact with a bunch of images. It’s a robust, flexible toolset for making communications and collaboration easier, better, and sane. It’s a product that brings all of us a big step closer to the promise of product lifecycle management for the everyone in the enterprise.

Komatsu Forest chooses 3DVIA Composer!


Hello all! This press release was announced today, full details can be found from News by clicking here. (NOTE: Link updated September 3, 2009.)

They will initially be using 3DVIA Composer for assembly instructions, to help leverage their CATIA data and provide enhanced assembly documentation and communication. This will speed the time to manufacture as well as improve overall quality. These types of benefits –  enabled by Composer — will naturally progress into extended uses in service and maintenance documentation, dealer and operator training, and marketing.

My favorite quote from the announcement:

“It can be quite complicated to set up our machines...

3DVIA Composer helps to build sustainable energy!



I found this article yesterday from Your Renewable News and thought I’d share it with you.

It mostly talks about the application of Dassault Systèmes software in a very sophisticated and experimental fusion energy devices called JET and its soon to be built ITER. Here’s an explanation from the article about this really cool sustainable energy device:

JET (Joint European Torus), located at Culham, UK, is a an experimental fusion energy device in which, by creating temperatures greater than that of the sun (around 100 million degrees C) and applying magnetic confinement, fusion of atomic nuclei takes place. The next stage of fusion technology development has started with the building of ITER, which is eight times larger in volume than JET...

Democratizate 3D and Win


Win with 3DVIA Composer

Take a look at this article from Industry Week. When discussing about the use of 3D CAD data in downstream departments such as manufacturing, service, training, spare parts, and others, the article states:

People working in those functional areas perform too much non-value-added work having to recreate images because they don’t have access to the CAD data. “Until they integrate these downstream processes, they’re never going to be lean,” Prawel says.

I couldn’t have said it better myself! Enabling downstream users to fully leverage 3D CAD data, and add their relevent context and knowledge into the that data, creates true information that not only improves communication, but improves companies’ ability to compete...
