A 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. Read full article »
The recent introduction of SolidWorks Plastics got me thinking about which injection molding simulation software would improve user performance the most.
SolidWorks Plastics has an advantage because it’s fully integrated into SolidWorks. The program was actually developed by SIMPOE SAS, a SolidWorks Gold Partner, and therefore offers “single window” convenience to more quickly optimize part and mold designs for manufacturability. Read full article »
The SolidWorks technical team has put together a series of 23 new video presentations in what they call the SolidWorks Demo Library. Read full article »
Writing about the drawbacks of the current state of simulation and how its typical integration with CAD creates performance-limiting bottlenecks, Malcolm Panthaki of Comet Solutions declares, “The geometry-centric approach has to be retired.” Read full article »
CATIA’s recent commitment to composites got a major seal of approval from the new UK National Composites Centre (NCC), a government-funded, industry-directed and university-owned £25m think tank. The NCC chose Dassault Systèmes’ Version 6 3D Experience platform to help achieve its mission of “facilitating the widespread industrial exploitation of composites.” Read full article »
