‘ b l e u ’: The CATIA Design Showcar

By Arnaud

How were CATIA designers and engineers able to work in concert to produce an aesthetically innovative and aerodynamic design under a very tight schedule ?

Discover ‘ b l e u ’: Excellence of design through creativity, sophistication and innovation. Based on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, ‘ b l e u ’ – the CATIA Design showcar – was developed thanks to Dassault Systèmes’ latest technologies.

10 Tips for Better Design

By Aude

As a designer, I’m always looking for new ways to improve my creative process, in order to fit my design intent from the first sketch to the final prototype.

This year, I had the opportunity to work with CATIA for Creative Designers in order to give life to my 3D Printed Jewelry Project which draws its inspiration from nature.

I’d like to share with you the experience I had on this project, through some tips which may help you increase your own creativity!

If you liked the presentation, feel free to share it! :-)

Disrupt Dixon’s Design [D3] in 3D

By Fred

Dassault Systèmes and famous British designer Tom Dixon have teamed up to create the first open design competition based on a modular concept!  :-)

Tom Dixon gives to participants an access to as many files as tubes of different lengths and different types of junctions, and challenge contestants to re-configure and remix these 3D pieces into different functional objects.

Dixon’s design uses a simple, elegant system: aluminium tubes arranged into a functional form by interconnecting junctions. These junctions are created in additive manufacturing using 3D printing technology, provided by our partner Sculpteo.

Launched at MOST Salone in Milan during Design Week, the competition is accessible via a Dassault Systèmes online community. Through this online community, participants will get access to software to assemble and experience their design project in 3D, share projects, media and ideas, and interact with other members.

The winning entry, chosen by a jury including Tom Dixon, will receive an iPad, his concept being 3D printed and assembled, and be awarded and featured at “Maison & Objet” trade show in Paris, September edition.
