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.

Military Embedded Systems article


Interesting editorial in the Military Embedded Systems Technology Feature, written by Jeff Covert. There is a 3DVIA Composer video sample in the side bar.

I like his introduction to the side bar:

For example, when the avionics module is redesigned, the changes are automatically updated in the training materials. That means zero rewrites, quality checks, or out-of-revision documentation. This completely efficient process is made possible by leveraging the data found inside your PLM system.

The rest of the article is also interseting, and covers several other use cases.

The connection of PLM to the product documentation offers one additional benefit: the ability to hav...
