New “Rep Types” can be defined as non-BOM relevant CAD Documents, e.g. “CAD_KIN” for kinematics. All “Rep Types” can be handled easily with the full CATIA-integrated GUI of PDM Workbench. A step to improve usability in large structures like Aerospace is the possibility to load just portions of a structure, but maintaining the geometrical context – hence reducing data traffic and load time in CATIA. Also the handling of configuration information is improved by enabling the handling directly within CATIA. Please visit our homepage to see the full list of new functionality in the release notes.

Open Source

What is it all about? June 01, 2011

I ett telefonsamtal i veckan med Leon Lauritsen på Minerva i Danmark talar vi om att man i varje samtal där begreppet "open source" förekommer, först behöver enas om vad det betyder. Leon är representant för Aras Innovator (PLM) som använder uttrycket Enterprise Open Source om sin produkt. Han säger också att open source-budskapet ibland gör kunderna oroliga. Att köpa eller hyra ett program är liksom enkelt. Men när det handlar om open source så blir affärsmodellen betraktad från alla håll den också, inte bara själva produkten som kan komma att användas. Och det är klart att det inte är så dumt att syna sina affärspartners oavsett om det handlar om ett köp, hyra eller "open source-användning". Men inget säger egentligen att det skulle vara helt tryggt att köpa och hyra eller helt otryggt att ta hem en vara "open source"? Det handlar kanske mera om att vänja sig vid modellen. Det menar i alla fall de som jobbar med "open source".

User interface customization and BREP export: KISTERS 3DViewStation V2014

Tablet-PC optimized new release of DMU tool February 01, 2014

3DViewStation V2014 ships with a fresh Office 2013 compliant user interface and provides functionality, which can be leveraged by the user quite intuitively. The focus of the latest developments has been set to customization of the user interface and BREP export capabilities.

The KISTERS 3DViewStation now provides several additional ways of UI customization: a pure left mouse button mode has been added to simplify the usage for occasional and also tablet-PC (finger) users. Mouse users now can determine, which functions should be performed when pressing the middle or right mouse button. The quick access toolbar can be customized and is pre-set now, so that frequently used functions are available without accessing the ribbon menu. Also, accelerator keys are defined for several functions and can be customized as per the user’s needs. Finally via XML the complete UI of the KISTERS 3DViewStation can be redefined.

Minerva launching new tool for Aras Innovator

Improve your data transfers with Minerva's Import Tool March 01, 2012

A company implementing PLM faces many challenges. One of the typical challenges is to get data from sources like CAD into the PLM system. Having an automatic integration between the PLM system and CAD is an option, but it is often costly, and for many companies the number of CAD users is too low to justify the investment.

Do Your Detective Work in 3D

BusinessTechnology - Article on Page 3 June 01, 2011

Imagine an organisation with thousands of products broken down into tens of thousands of parts. Now consider their drawings repository, all tagged with non-uniform descriptions and part numbers, often shared across several departments and offices. What a nightmare! How do they find a specific part in a hurry? Hope the description was entered intuitively? Rely on the accuracy of the part number? What about duplicates – aren’t they costly and confusing? ShapeSpace solves the problem. Shape-Space is a unique 3D search engine which enables you to re-organise, re-catalogue and eradicate duplicates in your massive drawings archive in hours.

Open Source

What is it all about? June 01, 2011

I ett telefonsamtal i veckan med Leon Lauritsen på Minerva i Danmark talar vi om att man i varje samtal där begreppet "open source" förekommer, först behöver enas om vad det betyder. Leon är representant för Aras Innovator (PLM) som använder uttrycket Enterprise Open Source om sin produkt. Han säger också att open source-budskapet ibland gör kunderna oroliga. Att köpa eller hyra ett program är liksom enkelt. Men när det handlar om open source så blir affärsmodellen betraktad från alla håll den också, inte bara själva produkten som kan komma att användas. Och det är klart att det inte är så dumt att syna sina affärspartners oavsett om det handlar om ett köp, hyra eller "open source-användning". Men inget säger egentligen att det skulle vara helt tryggt att köpa och hyra eller helt otryggt att ta hem en vara "open source"? Det handlar kanske mera om att vänja sig vid modellen. Det menar i alla fall de som jobbar med "open source".

Shape Searches Eliminate Duplication

Eureka - The Site for Engineering Design March 01, 2011

Because design engineers often lack browse and search capabilities, the business of finding a part within a large component library can be complex and time consuming, especially when the name or part number is unknown. Naturally, this problem tends to make finding and reusing existing parts extremely difficult. A solution to this problem is available in the form of ShapeSpace, a 3D shape search technology provides engineering companies with a comprehensive 3D CAD search tool.

A Leaner Manufacturing Case Study

by ProcessFlows Magazine January 01, 2011

Control valve manufacturer Bifold wanted to drive changes in their manufacturing processes which would cut costs and deliver measurable improvements in reliability and performance. Using ShapeSpace 3D search technology to search their entire part reference library and identify all parts manufactured from the same raw material, Bifold were very quickly able to consolidate manufacturing processes and improve efficiencies. “As well as being leaner, greener and more efficient, we are able to turn around customer orders in a more reliable timeframe as the majority of parts are always ‘on the shelf’," said Mike Peacock, General Manager at Bifold.
