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.

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.

And the winner of the “Seating Experience” CATIA Design Contest 2013 is…

By Arnaud

First things first, we would like to thank all participants for the wonderful projects provided for the CATIA Design Contest “Seating Experience – When Shape meets Function”! Great job :D

Then, we are pleased to announce and congratulate our winner Vinay Reddy for his “SPACE TIME” Seating Experience Project!

Vinay Reddy is coming from Bangalore, India. He is interested in many topics including Product Design, Industrial Design, Product Design, Social Innovation, Affordable Healthcare, Solar lighting and Energy! Vinay is particularly motivated by the creation of innovative products. Both contemporary and aesthetic, his “SPACE TIME” project provides many features all the while saving space. It truly fits with the spirit of the CATIA Design Contest 2013 “When Shape meets Function”!

Vinay shared with us the creative process he followed to develop the “SPACE TIME” concept:

It took about 3 Weeks for Vinay to complete his project : about 2 weeks for idea development and concepts generation; and another week to finish modeling, rendering and presentations. Vinay has been using CATIA for over a year, he got to learn how to use it during a previous work experience at Ashok Leyland — designing automotive components. He is familiar with surface and solid modeling. He used the CATIA V5 – Mechanical Design workshop to design “SPACE TIME”.

Last but not least, we have the great pleasure to give away to the TOP 3 Seating Experience projects a 3D print of their respective seats!  :-)
