Throughout the year, Dassault Systèmes is involved in a lot of worldwide events promoting engineering education.

From October 15th to 18th was held the first World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. This event brought together the biggest and most important international organizations devoted to engineering education like The MathWorks, HP or Microsoft. The objective was to think and find solutions about sustainable development and social inclusion through engineering education.

As a premium sponsor, Dassault Systèmes played a major role during this event:

Our 3DS booth gathered the Academia team from 3DS HQ, the 3DS Latin America team and Teckdes, our local academic reseller. They met with students, deans and educators, but also hosted several meetings, including a workshop highlighting academic projects authored by Argentinean students.

Our 3DS booth gathered the Academia team from the HQ, the LATAM Marketing team and Teckdes, our local academic reseller. They met with students, deans and educators, but also hosted several meetings, including a workshop highlighting academic projects authored by Argentinean students.

Invited on stage, students from the National University of La Plata and Universidad Tecnologica Nacional presented their projects made with CATIA, SIMULIA, SolidWorks and other 3DS software. Have a look at the projects:

Modelization and analysis of the operational capacity of La Plata airport in order to modernize and improve its capacity.
Made with: CATIA V6, SolidWorks, ENOVIA V6 and 3DVIA Composer

Innovation product design: The Smart Doormat has been designed to clean shoes and to prevent the floors from rotting. Indeed, our houses, hospital and all indoor places in general are   polluted with germs, dirt, bacteria and so on because people don’t take off their shoes.
Made with: CATIA V5 and 3DVIA Composer

An alternative solution for recycling automotive tires: the use of tires as water conducts. The objective of this project was to develop a machine to manufacture a duct for/to drain stacked water.
Made with: CATIA V5 and SIMULIA

Design of a Three Wheel Electric Vehicle:  The vehicle is powered with 19,5 kw/hs Lithium Batteries and has Brushless Type Electric motor.  Its maximum speed is 60 km/h with a range of 300 km.
Made with: CATIA V5 and SIMULIA

You can find on our Facebook page more pictures from the WEEF 2012 event as well as more details about the student’s projects. Hope you’ll enjoy!  :D

 

Paris 3D Saga – Experience it live, online and mobile

Paris 3D SagaA couple years after the Khufu and Giza projects, we’re back into a brand new historical 3D adventure. This time, it’s nothing less than the most visited capital in the world, the City of Lights, also know as Paris ;-)  “Paris 3D Saga” is an educative and entertaining journey in the history of Paris beginning 20 centuries ago. Today, we’re releasing three ways to experience the Paris 3D Saga: a live event (if you have the chance to be in Paris tonight), an online 3D experience, as well as an iPad app. Please have a look at the video previews below!

At a first glance, Paris 3D might just look as a video game. It’s not. Each step of the reconstitution was verified and validated with history experts. An history committee under the supervision of Didier Busson, history expert and archaeologist of Paris city, ensured that the project was scientifically and architecturally accurate. Because in the end, whether it’s for our customers from any industry or for an historical reconstitution, our technology and approach serve the same intent: it’s not about building virtual universes for the sake of virtuality ; it’s about building virtual universes that are the closest to the real world, for the sake or reality. Or, in a single word, 3DEXPERIENCE :)

How Dassault Systèmes’ Support met Matt Wynn, CAA enthusiast

Matt Wynn - Magestic Systems, Inc
Matt Wynn is one of the key administrators of a LinkedIn group called “CAA V5/V6 interFace/Forum: Where CAA Enthusiasts Meet”. This is the story of how he met our experts from Dassault Systèmes Support and became an influent member of our CAA community. First of all, just to be clear, CAA stands for “Component Architecture Application”. It is a development environment for customers or partners to implement applications that are fully integrated with the CATIA, ENOVIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA and 3DVIA product lines. Matt Wynn is one of those partners.

Can you present yourself briefly?
I have two degrees in Aerospace Engineering and have been programming manufacturing automation / CAM software for over 20 years. I work for Magestic Systems, Inc. where I spend most of my time writing code and working with customers. Outside of work I race slot cars at Elmsford Raceway and teach snowboarding in the winter at Windham Mountain.

How did you meet Dassault Systèmes’ products and people?
Magestic Systems has worked with CATIA for many years and became a software partner in 2004. In 2008 I worked in Paris with Dassault Systèmes staff to perform one of the first migrations of V5 partner applications to V6.

What are the things you made with CAA you are the most proud of?
TruLASER™ View Composites CAA for a wind power applicationI am proud of anything that has been successful! Magestic Systems TruLASER™ View applications for Composites, Assembly and Paint templating are the biggest commercial success in both V5 and V6. It has also been very interesting to create some batch programs without a user interface that import to and export from CATIA and other types of data.

Why this CAA community on LinkedIn? How did you come to lead it?
The LinkedIn CAA group “CAA V5/V6 interFace/Forum: Where CAA Enthusiasts Meet” was created in 2008 by Yong Zhao, and I am only one of the managers. I found the CAA group on LinkedIn late in 2008 while I was visiting Dassault Systèmes working on the V6 migration.Somehow, knowledgeable CAA programmers that were willing to share found it and it has been a great resource. As of April 2012, there are over 1200 members, approximately 40-50% are employed as CAA programmers. It is very interesting to watch who is joining the LinkedIn groups, and I try to send each new member a welcome message. This helps them get to know me as well, which is the whole idea behind LinkedIn.

Then you naturally became a member of the CAA community on Swym.3ds.com?
I joined the 3DSwYm community several years ago when I started to use the DraftSight DXF/DWG editing tool. I was invited to the CAA community just before it opened up because I am a V6 early adopter and my leadership of the LinkedIn group.

What do you think those two communities bring to CAA developers?
There is a synergy with 3DSwYm and LinkedIn communities.Both provide important resources to the CAA developers.
The LinkedIn group is open to anyone with an interest in CAA programming. It has had steady growth, with 100 new members every 4 months for several years. It has the ‘critical mass’ required for a community of developers to be helpful to each other.
CAA Community on 3DSwymThe 3DSwYm community can do things that are impossible on LinkedIn. It has had good growth since it went public in December, but not much participation by members yet. There is more opportunity in the 3DSwYm group for difficult CAA questions to be addressed by very knowledgeable Dassault Systèmes people, especially on the topic of V6 CAA. 3DSwYm includes the ability to share documents and code and data samples, which I have found very helpful. Before 3DSwYm, this kind of support required submitting service requests, which I think many developers do not have access to.

For those of you who are interested, you can contact Matt both on Swym.3ds.com and on LinkedIn. :-)

Best,

Matthias
