A few days after Orlando, we have now landed in Brussels where we are delighted to meet you for the 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM Europe. The agenda of these two days is pretty dense but it is really worth attending! (By the way, we had the chance to ear Joseph Pine in Orlando, we're sure you'll appreciate his speech too...).

We've just finished to set up the PLM MarketPlace booth in the Agora where we found a lot of logos we are familiar with. See by yourself, you will have the chance to meet 13 partners part of the PLM MarketPlace. Keonys, Tata Technologies, Technia, Processia and T-Systems on the PLM Solutions Partners (VARs) side. Geometric Ltd, IGE+XAO, OPTIS, Theorem Solutions, Transcat and AIRBUS CIMPA on the Software Partners side. Last but not least, our Technology Partners AMD and Noomeo will be there too to showcase their latest innovations.

Don't hesitate to stop by the PLM MarketPlace booth at any time, should you need more information about our partners or the program. We are here to help!

And, as for Orlando, follow the #3DXforum hashtag on Twitter to get live news from the forum!

See you tomorrow, now it is time for a "gaufre" and a "bière" :-)

Jaguar Land Rover is using OPTIS solutions integrated in CATIA V5, to improve the design and lighting of their car interiors, as well as the visbility and legibility of information on their dashboard instrumentation.

OPTIS solutions enable OEMS and suppliers around the world to answer questions like : 
- How will my car interior look using this new dashboard material? How will it look if I change the color? How will it appear at various different times of day and in various different places around the world? 
- I’m designing a convertible, I need to be sure that when the hood’s down, our customers can still see the controls... 
- Will the driver be able to see the dashboard controls when the sun is shining directly on them from the side window? What would happen to the visibility if I altered the angle of the display, or changed its background material ? Is all the information on my new control panel legible; can I reduce the number of light guides but still maintain the legibility? 
- How can I be sure that components from different suppliers will ‘look good’ when I integrate them in my car interior? 
- I recently drove a car which had a really annoying reflection of the dashboard in the windscreen. It was so bad it was almost dangerous. I have to be sure our future car won’t have any, but how can I be certain before I produce the first physical prototype?

OPTIS rendering and visualisation solutions are unique in taking into account the optical properties of materials and surfaces, giving the customer the guarantee that their simulation results will be how the final product will really appear. They are also unique in taking into account human vision, and can even detect potential problem areas such as unwanted reflections, glare, areas of low visibility and stray light.

Note that OPTIS solutions, including the SPEOS for CATIA V5 product range which is available on the PLM MarketPlace, are used in various industries, including: aerospace, high-tech, automotive, CPG,...

We're back in Dassault Systèmes HQ after two very great days at ECF 2011. It was the opportunity for us to meet our partners and see some live demos of their solutions. I must confess that year after year, they push the limits of innovation. Each of them came with brand new products or new features. Ready for the tour?

We first met Angela and René from OPTIS. OPTIS is a world leader in optics simulation. They were presenting their new solution THEIA RT, the world's first truly physics-based real time rendering. On the SPEOS side, there is a new feature: Digital Vision & Surveillance. This allows to enhance camera monitoring before manufacturing the good. For instance, based on the source of light, plane manufacturers can now place a camera at the right place in the cargo hold. Pilots will then have a better vision of the situation in case of fire.

David of IGE+XAO introduced the latest features of See Electrical, the company's electrical harness design solution. See Electrical v4 is now multi-user in addition to be collaborative. IGE+XAO is becoming more and more present in the rail industry (they will be present at the BCN Rail tradeshow next week in Barcelona, Spain). Last but not least, they won some significant deals recently, including ISS Reshetnev in Russia (aerospace), Mühlenberg Interior in Germany (aerospace), Agusta Westland (flight simulation) in Italy or Rolls Royce Marine in Canada.

Next partner I visited was Theorem Solutions. Martin gave me an overview of all the translators available and their future migration on the V6 platform. The company is also increasing its presence in the field of consultancy with their solution called Theorem Process Manager. Theorem Solutions is also now offering a data archiving service allowing customers to maintain legacy data for long term storage.

Finally, I had the chance to see the Transcat team from Germany. Martin told me about the latest release (v1.5) of Q-Compare.

Q-Compare delivers extra functionality for the comparison of two CATIA V5 files. Not only geometrical differences are detected, but also modifications of attributes, colours, naming, elements and many more. It is possible to compare drawings, parts and products, either interactively or in batch mode. With Q-Compare Version 1.5 the highlighting of model diviations right within CATIA has been improved. A new function allows to show the compared models in one single window, which makes it even easier to visualize differences. Download the flyer and release note for more details. 

As you can see, our partners came with their bags full of new solutions and features. Remember that all these solutions are available on the PLM MarketPlace and that you can request more information and even a quote online!

Now, I'd like to hear from you! Did you attend this year's ECF? What did you think about it? Something you saw/heard and want to share with us? I give you the floor!

Huge companies in the Silicon Valley started their business in a small garage, with one to three people. Then their innovative products made them successful companies. It is quite the same story for our partner Optis. 21 years ago, Jacques DELACOUR launched Optis in a container and now the company has 65 employees with offices in North America, Germany and Japan.

Jacques DELACOUR has been awarded the prestigious distinction of Chevalier de L’Ordre National du Mérite, the National Order of Merit, awarding his success as CEO.

The medal was presented to DELACOUR by Bernard CHARLÈS, on behalf of the French President.The National Order of Merit is the second highest award accorded to civilians by the French Republic, behind the Legion of Honour.

Leadership sharing

J. Delacour, is also invested in several organization both locally in the Var region (Management progress association, Toulon Var Technologies) and nationaly (Richelieu comity, OSEO Excellence)

Optis is now working for huge companies like Airbus, Audi, Jaguar, Thales, Bombardier, ... doing light simulation based on physics, integrated into PLM Process for ergonomics and safety.

Read the full success story.

Modelling optical performance of devices in conventional CAD packages has proved either impossible or extremely time-consuming. However, managing light and lit appearance are crucial for lighting systems, style signature and human machine interfaces.

OPTIS has announced that its 3D Textures application will soon be available into SPEOS CAA V5 Based, the CATIA V5 integrated version of OPTIS’s SPEOS light simulation software. SPEOS enables engineering designers to model complex integrated mechanical and optical engineering tasks seamlessly within CATIA V5.

Using 3D Textures For SPEOS CAA V5 Based, a designer can easily create tens of millions of modelled points on surfaces, directly inside CATIA V5, in view to manage the way light is propagated and comes to the final user’s eye.

With the integration of LED sources in more and more systems such automotive tail lamps, luminaire design, lit buttons and backlights in electronics including PDAs and mobile phones, it becomes necessary to generate 3D Textures motifs applied on complex compound surfaces.

SPEOS 3D Textures enables a 3D model to include tens of millions of patterns thanks to a memory requirement optimization (150Mb needed for 1 million patterns), a rapid loading time and fast simulation time (16min for 4 million patterns). It also offers fully optimised multithreaded and 64bit operation, which other packages cannot match.

3D Textures For SPEOS CAA V5 Based will offer advanced optical design capabilities, including modelling CAD patterns onto any possible CAD shape and surface and modelling based on mixing diverse materials of construction.

With this unique 3D Textures function, SPEOS CAA V5 Based will enable both improved design functionality and time-saving in challenging applications such as modelling backlit displays, and the latest designs of automotive lights.
