Benefits of 3DEXPERIENCE CATIA for Composite Design & Manufacturing

Posted by Geoff Haines on 20-Jun-2019 16:16:00

Paying attention to the careful design and material selection guidelines in the design and manufacturing of composites is vital to ensuring structural integrity of parts. Without adherence to guidelines in designing composites, this can lead to the development of poor-quality parts, which isn’t going to help anyone.

This is extremely important as the benefits of strong composite designs include the production of lightweight, impact resistant and strong parts compared to standard metal products. Ultimately, this leads to the manufacturing of better quality parts for a better-quality product, especially when these parts will be used in aircraft where safety protocols are extremely stringent. 

The production of better-quality parts is also important due to Governmental crackdowns on carbon emissions, particularly for aircrafts. But with composite design, the reduction in fuel costs and carbon emissions based on the production of lightweight structures helps to adhere to Governmental pressures.

#BeyondBIM2019

Posted by DTE on 27-Feb-2019 16:12:00

Current practice in architectural and engineering design involves workflow methods that can have many stages and steps that challenge the efficacy and quality of the design and construction process.  Unnecessary costs accrue through design collaboration delays and redesign or rework at any stage which challenges the business model of all participants.

Modelling methodology in CATIA V5 Article Series

Posted by Alex Fernandes on 27-Sep-2018 16:13:10

Round-up

Over the past couple of months, we published a series of articles related to Modelling Methodology in CATIA V5.

The presented articles discuss the entire process for parts that are mainly prismatic in shape, with single body.

Multi-body and surface based modelling will be covered in future articles.

To recap, the topics and articles links are below:

Adaptive Building Design

Posted by Geoff Haines on 26-Jul-2018 09:56:00

In recent years many papers, both government whitepapers, research document and industry guru’s have voiced concern on the poor productivity within the construction industry.

Comparisons have been made with manufacturing industry where overall productivity has doubled over 20-30 years. So how did that industry achieve such gains and construction didn’t?

CATIA Composer with Composite Part Data

Posted by Justin Brash on 05-Apr-2018 12:01:00

In this short video, see how CATIA Composer can import native CATIA V5 Composite parts, and preserve all of the Composite Design and Analysis data for use in creating rich 3D documentation.

A simple example of a CATIA V5 Composite part is used in the video, modelled using the 'Zone Approach' with one main laminate and four thicker, reinforcement laminates. 

Learn how to open and select the CATPart from your file browser and see how it replicates in Composer, with all the geometry included.  You will now have the ability to design and capture multiple scenes (or views) as well as create high quality key-frame based animations.

Training Certification - why do it?

Posted by Geoff Haines on 09-Jan-2018 14:20:30

How do you get recognition of your skills or you want to be involved in better work or been seen as making a difference - how do you show your difference?  

It’s all about having something unique that gives value to your employer.

  

Or if when job seeking how do you differentiate yourself from the rest of the pack? I had a friend who said you should draw pretty flowers on your CV! – whether he ever did that I don’t know, but in the competitive world we live you have to have a difference. That’s what sells. In sales jargon it’s called a Unique Selling Point, and when going for a job or looking to improve your position, that’s what you need.
