Why Products Are No Longer Enough: Consumers Today Buy Experiences

By Therese

Take a minute and think about the products you manufacture. Whether it’s in the area of High Tech, Consumer Goods, Transportation & Mobility, or any other industry, at the end of the day, it’s what motivates consumers to purchase that matters the most. And what motivates them more than the actual experience?

The consumers of today buy experiences—products are no longer enough. At the 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM North America, you can learn how to go beyond delivering great products and move to creating memorable experiences for your customers. Virtual Reality presents a significant impact on your customers and use of DELMIA solutions can take them there.

#Rosetta: 3D-Modeling and 3D-Printing Comet #67P

By Fred

On November 12, 2014, Philae will land (or not!) on the Churyumov-Gerasimenko comet! Also known as “67p” or its nickname “TCHOURI”.

The Rosetta mission started 10 years ago by the European Spatial Agency (ESA), went through more than 6 billions kilometers, and Rosetta engineers will hope to make space history by landing the “Philae” robot on the surface of this icy comet for the first time, the comet being about 2.4 miles (4km) wide. You can follow the latest news on the ESA website, this a real challenge, a world first!

Thanks to many photos took by the Rosetta cameras while in orbit around the comet, a 3D model of the comet has been reconstructed based on images from the OSIRIS and NAVCAM cameras.

Because roughly 30% of the ‘dark side’ of 67P/C-G has not been resolved and analysed fully yet, the shape model is very incomplete over those regions. As a result, some of the derived parameters for the comet are only best estimates at present.

3DS Fablab worked hard to create 3D Printed parts from the 3D model generated from photos, and for this special event, hosted by “La cité des Sciences” in Paris, in which 3D prints will be offered to VIPs invited to witness this unique event live. Using the Form1 printer from FormLabs, the result is quite impressive, and will give attendees an opportunity to better feel and understand the shape and surface of this comet. Watch the video of the project below:

Dassault Systèmes is proud to be a partner of this event, but you too can 3D-print the comet by downloading the 3D file provided by the ESA on the MadeIn3D Community!

The event will be held at La Cité des sciences et de l’Industrie, in multiplex with ESA center in Darmstadt, Germany and the space museum in Toulouse, France. People will be able the see the first landscape from the comet landing viewpoint, and get the first scientific data transmitted by Philae. This moment should be of great emotion! The event program should begin on November 12, 2014 at 3.30 PM Paris time (exact hour can vary, you’ll understand why :-) ). Till then, you will want to watch this fantastic short film directed by Oscar-winning Tomek Bagiński and starring Aidan Gillen—Littlefinger of Game of Thrones—about the importance of the Rosetta mission:

#IFWE Challenge prizewinner to pitch at GreenBiz #VERGECon

By Aurelien

Milos Milisavljevic

Milos Milisavljevic, co-founder and CEO of Strawberry Energy, and prizewinner of the #IFWE Challenge will be pitching today at VERGE Conference in San Francisco, an international event “where tech meets sustainability” organised by our partner GreenBiz.

Indeed, not only Milos will be attending the conference (as part of his perks for winning the 2nd prize of the #IFWE Challenge), but he has been selected among tens of other candidates to pitch about his projects in front of a large audience of sustainability professionals, media, and investors.

See his application pitch below:

As a matter of fact, Milos is already used to such exercise as he brilliantly spoke at the New Cities Summit 2014 event (organized by our partner New Cities Foundation). Watch his presentation below: YouTube Preview Image But for now, let’s wish best of luck to Milos’ pitch today, between 10:05 and 10:30 (San Francisco time)! If you’re not physically attending VERGE Conference, you can still attend VERGE Virtual Event by registering for free.
