More news on the strategic partnership front to promote the use of 3D as a universal media. CAD and PLM leader Dassault Systems is teaming up with Seemage Inc. to build tighter integration between their respective product lines.
Together with the Dassault lineup, Seemage’s tools, used to deliver product information and CAD data in different formats throughout the enterprise, will provide customers will a seamless link between product documentation and PLM product-related data. Company officials say the integration will help eliminate all disparities between product-related IP and any required product documentation, including animations, training illustrations, maintenance manuals and service procedures.
Seemage’s XML-based architecture integrates with other enterprise systems and allows users to exploit 3D data from CAD platforms, meaning that content can be created for any desired output in formats, including Microsoft Office documents, PDF and HTML.
Other PLM vendors have already built similar bridges in the area of digital product content production. PTC, for one, has been working towards this goal following its acquisition of Arbortext.
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
