Do you want to develop innovative and successful products?

Do you need to improve efficiencies and make the right decisions while reducing development time and costs? 

Dassault Systèmes has developed “My Design”, an integrated solution that expands your growth and helps increase your margin, making sure you develop a successful product that your consumers will love.

Click here to discover how a typical furniture company has rapidly developed a new office chair, with an integrated approach, from ideation to market launch. Imagine that all internal and external players can easily collaborate together.


Marketing and Innovation

What if marketing and innovative departments could keep abreast of market needs by managing the free flow of ideas and providing multimedia dashboards?

With a few clicks, the Marketing Manager can easily consult design trends and blogs and monitor project status, all in real-time. Together with her colleagues, she can perform a detailed review of key trends, challenges and consumer expectations. With this visual information, managers can assign maturity levels bumping them up from proposal status, to concept through to validation.


Creative Design

What if industrial designers and stylists used powerful and intuitive tools that allowed them to focus on innovation?

With CATIA, industrial designers can create freeform 3D sketches. It’s fast and easy to use allowing the user to explore more design scenarios in a short amount of time. He can transform ideas into a 3D reality while exploring detail design variations directly on 3D objects. Sketching combined with the intuitive act of painting demonstrates the power of realistic 3D modeling. Using subdivision-surface technology, the industrial designer can very quickly sculpt in 3D, while keeping surface curvature continuity under control.


Decision Review

What if you could improve efficiencies and make the right decisions while reducing development time?

It’s time for important decisions to be made during a design-review session with the product manager, the CEO and the marketing manager. To ‘sell’ his ideas, the industrial designer is now using CATIA to present and promote projects with a high-end visualization and rendering solution.


Concept Development

What if you could reduce development costs by enabling industrial designers and mechanical engineers to work in the same integrated environment?

Mechanical engineers can quickly design Sheet Metal parts by taking capitalized know-how and manufacturing constraints into account early in the design process. The engineer can intuitively manage the forming process directly in 3D and automatically generate flattened views from the 3D design part.


Simulation and Validation

What if decision makers could harness accurate information to define the best consumer experience and make the right choices?

Integrating simulation in the design workflow improves quality and reduces the cost linked to physical testing. Now that the product is completely defined, all actors and decision makers can easily experience the final product in context and digital assets are ready to be re-used for marketing purposes.



“My Design” is an integrated solution based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform for Consumer Goods companies. It allows the free flow of ideas through social innovation and provides multimedia dashboards to keep abreast of market needs. With “My Design”, your company can develop innovative products faster and cheaper and deliver products consumers love.

Further to our previous post about ‘b l e u’: The CATIA Design Showcar, we wanted to let you know more about the backstage.

CATIA bleu

To begin with, I’d like to invite you to read this Car-Design-News online article and discover details of the making-of and all workshops and tools in CATIA used by the CATIA Design team to complete this project. ‘b l e u’ virtual showcar was fully developed inside Dassault Systèmes’s 3DEXPERIENCE social collaborative environment with CATIA Creative Design and CATIA Surface Refinement solutions.

CATIA bleu

From the initial inspirations and the marketing brief, to CATIA Natural Sketch used at the ideation phase to rapidly translate ideas into 3D, CATIA Imagine & Shape for sculpting volumes, proportions and character lines, CATIA Icem for Surface Refinement and advanced surface modeling and CATIA Live Rendering for photorealistic visualization. You will path through the full creative design and development process at the end of this article you will find links to replay the two related webinars and pictures gallery of this showcar.
