How Sany uses 3DVIA Composer to provide intuitive training and operating instructions.


3DVIA Composer has been used in a very effective way by one of our clients that belong to Industrial Equipment Industry in their training and operating instruction creation process and we wanted to share their use with you.

SANY Group is the sixth largest construction machinery producer in the world, with a diverse product line of concrete machinery, excavators, crawler cranes, truck cranes, pile driving machinery, road construction machinery, port machinery, and wind turbine solutions.

Sany is using 3DVIA Composer in 3 Steps :

Step 1

Process engineers import product 3D models into the application, design and create the assembly animation, adding necessary collaborators and annotation.

Step 2

In the operation standard editor, process engineers embed the animation in the correct posit...

3DVIA Composer brings virtual online training to “A Roof in My Country” in Argentina


This announcement was posted a few days ago:

“Un Techo Para Mi Pais,” (UTPMP), recognized by the United Nations as one of the non-governmental organizations best suited for public-private partnerships, gives disadvantaged families a new start by offering the security found in a new home,  along with the social, educational and micro-financing services needed to create a responsive community or “barrio” where they can thrive.

But like many volunteer organizations, UTPMP faces the challenge of how best to train new volunteers while capturing the lessons learned by others leaving the organization.  To do this, UTPMP is creating a real-time and online 3D community for sharing and retaining organizational knowledge.

3DVIA Composer to the rescue! This sort of remote training is ideall...

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...

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:

Gone are the days of trial and error, along with expensive mistakes and long training periods inherent in using static data. 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...

3D Digital Manufacturing: Treehuggers Unite!


tree hugger

I was just reading Patrick Michel’s article in Manufacturing Business Technology. It’s a pretty good read, as he makes people aware that “being green” in manufacturing doesn’t necessarily mean implementing the stereotypical alternative fixes such as solar panels on the plant roof.

While he is mostly talking about plant layout and simulation, using 3D web based digital manufacturing solutions, what really caught my eye was the comment someone gave at the end of the article:

The use of paper is still utilized and graphics and instructions are created for hand off to mechanics. It is in many cases too difficult to provide a laptop with the information, the laptop becomes cumbersome and difficult to maneuver and the opportunity for damage and theft to occur rises.

When you think about digital...

Taira Promote Deploys 3DVIA Composer and 3DVIA Virtools


Taira Promote, a customer in Japan, is making great use of 3DVIA products to liberate 3D data out of engineering and into the hands of technical publications and training manuals. They are using 3DVIA Virtools and 3DVIA Composer to develop and launch their “i-manuals”. These are in-depth , interactive, and on-line technical manuals to communicate and simulate highly complicated concepts.
