In line with our Da Vinci community and thanks to the partnerships we have with the Chateau du Clos Lucé and Scala Archives, Dassault Systèmes has decided to launch a Da Vinci-themed 3D design competition. This competition is opened until April, 18th 2014.

Leonardo Da Vinci, famous for the biggest Italian renaissance polymaths and one of the brightest minds of all times, had a real passion for complex machine concepts.

Even though most of them were genuine visionnary creations, some would not working properly in real life. By complementing the intelligence and vision of the human mind to modern software and hardware tools, we can have those strange machines come to virtual life and simulate their behavior! This contest was launched to illustrate this complementarity.

Based on any of the provided Da Vinci codex, design one of his creation in 3D!

The 1st prize will be awarded to the best design and best post: one HP ZBook 14, plus a chance to have his 3D model exhibited at the Clos Lucé.

The 2nd and 3rd prizes will be awarded to the two runner-ups, who will respectively receive an AMD FirePro W7000 graphic card and an AMD FirePro W5000 graphic card.

JOIN THE COMMUNITY to participate and to find all the detailed submission information, including an existing list of rare codex!

And a lot of competitors!

Christmas time is coming and we all know the feeling and excitement that come along when you open your presents. We are curious to know what's inside, how it works, etc... This was the challenge faced by our partners AMD and Dell: demonstrating the power of their respective 3D graphics cards and workstations working together.

Partnership is all about joining forces to deliver the best to the market. This is why AMD, Dell and 3DVIA teamed up to demonstrate that the AMD FirePro W7000 graphic card coupled with the Dell Precision T7610 workstation is the ultimate combination for CAD and engineering professionals.


The demonstration enables users to easily step through the 3D experience which identifies the key features of each component, while also explaining how the products operate and are installed. (download the whitepaper by clicking on the image on the right)

This is the perfect tool for the companies' sales teams to use and get from a general overview of the product to very small but important details.
Customers now have a cool experience to understand better the interaction between AMD FirePro graphic cards and Dell workstations. 

And the use of both technologies to run Dassault Systèmes' 3DVIA Composer is the perfect proof of the power and capabilities of this combination!

A few weeks ago during the CES held in Las Vegas, AMD offered visitors a pretty interesting experience called the "SurRoundHouse". You thought that immersive 3D environment couldn't make it home? Then, you're wrong!

As Forbes describes it, "SurRoundHouse is a hyperbolic demonstration of just how immersive computing output can be. The demo is actually a house, which will be situated outside the Las Vegas Convention Center. Viewers will enter into what looks like a “farm cabin” with 10 windows, each of which is actually a 55” LED TV. These TVs are tied together by AMD Eyefinity display technology, which allows them to be run from a single PC with three AMD FirePro graphics cards.".


Did you have the chance to be at the heart of this 3D experience during the last CES? Which usages do you imagine with such technology?

AMD had a strong participation at SolidWorks World, next to Hewlett-Packard booth.
On the last day of the event, Bernard Charles, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dassault Systèmes stopped by the AMD FirePro booth to check out some of the new ways enhancing the working experience with SolidWorks using AMD FirePro graphics solutions.


Antoine Reymond presenting to Bernard Charles, President and Chief Executive Officer of Dassault Systemes and Monica Menghini, EVP, Industry, Marketing and Corporate Communications the value of graphics and small form factors in the hands of all manufacturing engineers for managing and monitoring work-in-process on a factory floor. Bernard was just amazed of the level of graphics and ability to port a full DS product such as 3DVIA Composer on a tablet.

AMD FirePro™ Technology and user-experience demonstrations included: 
• a 6-monitor AMD Eyefinity multi-display set-up driven by a single AMD FirePro™ V9800 graphics card showing an 18 Million triangle airplane model loaded into SolidWorks 2012 and rotating in RealView mode with full shadows, textures and environment reflections. Total combined display resolution was 5760X3200 pixels. 
• a 4-monitor AMD Eyefinity multi-display set-up running on an HP EliteBook 8760w. This technical documentation/publication workflow demonstration showed multiple simultaneous applications (all displayed simultaneously) and included SolidWorks, 3DVIA Composer and various 3DXML players. This demonstration walked visitors to the booth through a workflow that showcased design, engineering, and creation of working manufacturing and maintenance instruction for a new vehicle. 
• an AMD FirePro™ 3D stereoscopic technology demonstration utilizing enhanced (prototype) AMD FirePro Catalyst Pro driver software. This demonstration used active 3D stereographic technology (via head-mounted shutter glasses and a specialized 120Hz display) and allowed for viewing and exploring of an animated aircraft engine dataset/model from within both e-Drawings and the standard SolidWorks 2012 viewport. 
• A demonstration system powered by the brand new AMD FirePro™ V3900 professional graphics card just announced at SolidWorks World. The AMD FirePro™ V3900 provides an unbeatable workstation-class experience at an unbeatable entry-level price ($129 USD). The demonstration showed a FirePro™ V3900 powering a multi-monitor set-up with two very large, datasets (thousands of parts) simultaneously displayed in RealView mode from within SolidWorks 2012. 
• An AMD/Windows-powered handheld tablet prototype running a full version of 3DVIA Composer. This leading-edge technology prototype clearly showed implications and increasing feasibility for using Windows-powered portable computing to assist in a broad range of use-cases from shop floor & industrial manufacturing, to field maintenance -and beyond.

DSCC2011 has now closed its doors and, from what I've heard and read, everyone really enjoyed the event. Two days of plenary sessions with executives from our customers and Dassault Systèmes (3DS), technical sessions including customers testimonies and a Technology Showcase where people had the possibility to meet 3DS experts and our partners. This was DSCC2011 and I hop you get the most of it and brought lots of ideas back at the office!

On the PLM MarketPlace side, it was a pleasure for me to see our American customers and partners and share ideas and opinions on what is going on in the industry. Our software and hardware partners came here with very exciting products. This was also a huge opportunity to present the benefits of the program not only to partners but also to our customers. PLM MarketPlace is also made for them and it was great to show them what our partners have to offer them.

I had the chance to meet Emmanuel from DPS. He gave me more details about his company's latest software called Mid Surface Mesher. You can find it on the PLM MarketPlace. Basically, Mid Surface Mesher is a tool aimed at providing CATIA V5 users specific capabilities for generating and meshing medial surfaces of thin structures. They're working on sone nice projects, you should hear more about it soon!

Also, it was a pleasure to see Shauwn and his team from CoastalLogic. This company is regularly present during 3DS events. They have just released convertLogic v5.8 (seamless, automated PDF conversion and metadata stamping of files from your ENOVIA database). This new version brings some new enhancements, including on demand streaming. Stay tuned to CoastalLogic, they've got some exciting new products on the way!

Last but not least, our fellows from AMD were present too. They were demonstrating all the power of their FirePro 3D graphics cards on a DELL workstation and laptop. From a single graphics card, the scenario goes from design using CATIA V5 – for design content creation to technical illustration (3DVIA Composer – technical publication content creation) to 3D XML and web-based assembly instructions (content consumer) used on the field or on the shop floor. The benefits are the great performance on multi-display, the reliability and great value-add of having 3 full HD displays to master the complete workflow. Displays can be arranged side by side to create a giant extended desktop, which can help support such advanced, multi-application workflows. The workflow uses a radio controlled radio controlled R/C car. See by yourself:


Another demo, this time using a Dell Precision M6600:


Impressive, isn't it? And I've got a good news for you if are attending the ECF in a couple of weeks: the AMD team will be there to show you it working live!

Well, that's almost all for DSCC2011 from a PLM MarketPlace perspective! This was our second participation to this event and again, this was great to be there meeting our American customers and partners. 

If you are in Europe, we really look forward to seeing you in two weeks in Paris at the European Customer Forum. We'll be present on the PLM MarketPlace booth located in the Technifair during these two days.

For those of you who want to have a refresh on the key messages of DSCC2011, a good way is to follow the hashtag #DSCC11 on Twitter as our attendees sent thousands of tweets during these two days! And if you want to see what the event looked like, we've uploaded some pictures on our Facebook page. Don't hesitate to share yours too!

I guess it's now time for me to see what's happening in the casinos before heading back to Paris! Wish me good luck ;-)

ECF2010's second day has started with lots of interesting sessions all day long. For those who were not able to visit all our Partners' booths, we continue our tour of Agora started yesterday.


We've met Antoine Reymond, AMD Strategic Alliances Senior Manager, who shared the booth with four other partners. Folks from 3dvia used ATI 3D graphic cards, running on Dell workstations, to run a 3D experience on six screens at the same time. The idea was to offer a deep view of an oil platform, offering a really interesting immersive experience. Combined with the ATI V7800, Fujitsu was able to display very high resolution pictures on their Celsius W380. Techviz was presenting immersive solution and rendering using CATIA and folks from Barco were there to showcase visualization and projection systems. Listen to Antoine and see what the renderings are like on these devices:

Romain Lavault from Intercim stopped by our booth and gave us his impressions on the event. You can find out more about their product Pertinence Suite (simplifying communications between engineering, production operations, ERP systems and across the supply chain) on PLM MarketPlace:

Our tour ends with David Sabot, from IGE+XAO. David performed a live demo of their electrical harness design solution See Electrical Harness. As a Gold partner of Dassault Systèmes and having several common customers present here at the event, David and his team were really eager to be at ECF2010. Find out more about See Electrical Harness in the following video:

We hope you enjoyed ECF2010 too and found this "virtual" tour of the event interesting. What are your feeling about the event? Did you enjoy it as much as we did?


We've published some photos and videos in our PLM MarketPlace page on Facebook, have a look at it and don't hesitate to share yours too!


We hope to see you for the next ECF!

Last week, Dassault Systèmes hosted two major events at its Paris DS Campus: the SwYm Conference (formerly DEVCON) and the 2010 Partner Summit. Attendees had the opportunity to enjoy cool demos of 3DVIA Studio: the game Billions and a realistic 3D and interactive view of a city.

Guests were wowed by this experience thanks to two of our technology partners: Hewlett-Packard who brought its latest HP Z800 Workstation and AMD with its high-end ATI Eyefinity technology 3D graphics card.

Using ATI Eyefinity multi-display technology allows professionals as well as gamers to get the most out of the 3DVIA product range to have superior lifelike experiences. The 3D professional graphic cards are also fully certified for working with a variety of other Dassault Systèmes brands, including CATIA.


Watch Antoine Reymond (AMD Senior Strategic Alliance Manager) and Tom Schorr (Dassault Systèmes Technology Partner Programs Manager) demoing the power of 3DVIA Studio and ATI Eyefinity technology running together.

If you attended the SwYm Conference / Partner Summit, what are your impressions about the ATI Eyefinity 3D graphics card showcased there?

Untitled 1 For product designers, simulation specialists and manufacturers, there is an ongoing desire to increase innovation and reduce design time and costly errors. To help address that need, the new ATI FirePro desktop and mobile workstation professional graphics delivers ground-breaking features and performance for Dassault Systèmes’ CATIA users working with challenging design and engineering projects, while helping boost productivity and pushing designs to the limits throughout the manufacturing process.

For example, the ATI FirePro V8800 features 1600 Stream Processing units that offer up to 2.6 TeraFLOPS of power with 147.2 GB/sec of memory bandwidth1. Using ATI Eyefinity technology, 2CATIA professionals can increase their desktop real estate and workflow productivity to view large scale models and multiple applications by running up to four independent and simultaneous 30-inch displays from a single card3.

The ATI FireProTM product range includes:
- Entry Level: Workstation quality for balance price and performance
ATI FirePro V4800 Professional Graphics Cards
- Mid-Range: Advanced features and outstanding performance for complex visualization

See and do more, without necessarily spending more

ATI Eyefinity technology is a revolutionary graphics technology from AMD that takes the relationship between workstation and display to the next level.1 This powerful new technology enables CATIA® and Dassault Systèmes users to run up to four simultaneous high-resolution displays with a single graphics card to create a hugely expanded visual workspace, and supports Dassault Systèmes’ strategy for immersive virtual reality.

For professionals in areas such as design, manufacturing, engineering, and technical publications, who work with large visual data sets, the ability to see full-screen 3D images and video across multiple displays working as a single desktop workspace is empowering. In addition, more space for multiple concurrent application windows greatly increases speed and productivity for your PLM workflow.

Until now, this high-performance, multi-screen capability has required additional expensive logic, but with ATI Eyefinity technology, all you need is a cost-effective, ATI Eyefinity-enabled ATI FirePro™ professional graphics card to complement your workstation. Furthermore, workstations can use multiple cards in concert to support even more screens to create truly massive on-screen workspace that’s budget friendly.

Tomorrow’s technology today

By leveraging the latest advances in graphical techniques, ATI Eyefinity technology brings immersive, panoramic personal computing to a wide audience of commercial and technical users and provides them with a stunning visual experience.

Key features include:

• AMD’s 10 bit video output technology supporting emerging display devices standards for dramatically improved depth of colour
• Innovative bezel management for seamless transition of moving images across display borders for a more realistic view
• Comprehensive support for the next generation of software standards including the sophisticated Microsoft DirectX® 11 interfaces and OpenGL 4.0

Ready to go out of the box

This groundbreaking technology is provided by a range of competitively priced, industry standard ATI FirePro™ professional graphics cards that are compatible with a wide range of existing graphics software applications out of the box. High resolution, multi-screen projects can now be accomplished on a wide range of PC workstations, from entry-level models through to high-end professional systems.

"See what you mean" is our motto here at Dassault Systèmes. This slogan refers to what our PLM solutions can do and how they can improve the user experience. But seeing is not just a matter of software. You can use the best software in the world (these can be found here ;-)) but without a good 3D rendering, it is very difficult to “see what you mean”.

Advanced Micro Devices (aka AMD) is one of the key Dassault Systèmes' Technology Partners. Today, we are proud to announce that their ATI FireProTM professional graphics 3D cards family is referenced on the PLM MarketPlace. Users are now offered the possibility to ask for information about AMD's device and be connected to one of their people!

At Dassault Systèmes, we consider AMD's products as one of the key enablers to deliver the power of our software. Take a look at Fred's video in which he explains how are AMD 3D graphic cards provide accelerated performance:

Have a look at what these guys do, 3D rendering is simply amazing! Also, don't miss their new ATI FireProTM V8800 Professional Graphics, setting new standards.

Wednesday, 30 December 2009

Well, 2009 is really coming to its end, and after last week’s retrospective, and as promised, it is now time to look at the future! As we said, we’ve got really cool things to announce for the PLM MarketPlace community. In 2009 (also applies for the previous years ;-)), we spent time meeting our customers, partners, resellers online but also for real (COE, DEVCON, ECF, …) and tried to find out how we could do better to help them.

Of course, today, it is still too soon to disclose everything, but this, for sure, what you will get from the PLM MarketPlace in 2010.

A growing catalog

The software catalog will welcome two new post-processors providers: ICAM and IMS. Their offers should be available online mid-/end-January. Note that in the field of post-processors, CENIT referenced their offer a few weeks ago.
On the hardware catalog side, we are very proud to announce that AMD decided to join the PLM MarketPlace! Their offer is scheduled to be available next month, a special announcement will be made once it is online, stay tuned!
Finally, we remind our services providers that we are still looking for candidates to be referenced on the Services Catalog of the PLM MarketPlace. The referencing mode is very flexible and made to comply with your business habits. Don’t hesitate to contact us to know more!

You remember IBM?

In October, Dassault Systèmes announced the acquisition of IBM PLM and its 700 Sales Reps. These guys showed interest in the PLM MarketPlace and the easy way it represents to deliver more value to customers. This is why, in the coming weeks, IBM PLM Sales Reps will be able to resell the solutions available on PLM MarketPlace! This represents a good opportunity to make a connection between customers and referenced partners… Again, “connecting partners” is our motto!

Buy one, get…

… maybe not one free :-) but, for sure, in 2010, there will be special discounts from our referenced partners, even new ones! Check regularly the homepage (www.plmmarketplace.com) to discover the current discounts available and ask your VAR for more details!

2010 will be a year of new challenges and maybe, for some of us, of a new start. We want to remind you that we are here to help you find the best way to develop your activity, your business, meet your challenges,…

Consequently, whatever (well… almost :-))you need, feel free to contact us and ask, we’ll do our utmost to help you.

Customers, resellers, solutions providers, this program is yours and we are open to make it change the way you think it will help you. This is our challenge for 2010.

On behalf of Jacques and Alexandre, I wish you all the best for 2010!
