Both awards attest to HandyPROBE’s performance versus traditional portable CMMs

Creaform, a worldwide leader in portable 3D measurement solutions and 3D engineering services, today announced that its optical portable CMM, HandyPROBE, has won two awards for being the best quality control product in its class: the MWP Advanced Manufacturing Award 2014 at MACH and the Prix du Copeau 2014 from the French magazine Machines Production.

Creaform developed the HandyPROBE portable coordinate measuring machine (PCMM) to increase the reliability and speed of measurement processes. Thanks to the integrated TRUaccuracyTM technology, which includes such features as dynamic referencing, automatic drift detection and alignment, the HandyPROBE can take highly accurate measurements in any work environment, regardless of vibrations, instabilities and thermal variations. What’s more, the HandyPROBE enables users to achieve substantial gains in productivity and cost savings; measurement errors can be reduced by up to 75% and a control time by a factor of 10.

The MWP Advanced Manufacturing Awards are a bi-annual event that is held in conjunction with the MACH exhibition in Birmingham (UK). The awards celebrate the most innovative solutions available at MACH across a variety of sectors. Creaform’s UK distributor, Measurement Solutions Limited, applied for the award with the HandyPROBE, highlighting the solution’s TRUaccuracyTM technology with dynamic referencing. The HandyPROBE won in the Quality Control Equipment category against both Hexagon and Renishaw.


One week before, the HandyPROBE won two prizes at the Prix du Copeau 2014, awarded by the French magazine, Machines Production at the Industrie Paris tradeshow. The Prix du Copeau honours suppliers’ innovation in helping improve the competitiveness and quality control performance of machining companies. The HandyPROBE again was recognized for its superior performance in quality control, winning second place in the general ranking and first place in the Quality Control Systems category. A jury composed exclusively of industrial machining professional selected the winners from 25 exhibiting companies.

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!

Here we are, the 3DEXPERIENCE Customer FORUM North America is now over. This morning's plenary session was as inspiring as yesterday's one with great testimonies including the angel foundation, North American Eagle or Microsoft. You get a summary of this plenary session by checking our 3D Perspectives blog

Now, let's go back to our software and hardware partners present in the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground. As yesterday we had some great time discovering what they have in the box and have them share with us their latest success stories.

Talking about success stories, we met the Coastal Logic team who told us they have just signed their first contract with a customer in the United Arab Emirates! This is great achievement for this partner getting more and more known and respected internationally by various customers such as General Electric or Cessna. PDF generation in CATIA & ENOVIA V5/V6 is becoming more and more critical for our users and Coastal Logic is offering out of the box solutions to answer this growing demand.

Let's talk a little bit about hardware now. It was nice to meet Scott and Tom from Lenovo. They brought their latest workstation certified for CATIA, the Thinkstation S30. And do you know the funny part of the story? This workstation was designed with... CATIA! The performance and reliability of these workstation are just high level. They bring brand new feature to our users such as the latest Intel Processor Xeon. To get the most of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform!

Last but not least, we had the opportunity to meet with Renée from ITI TranscenData. The company provides solutions for interoperability between the various CAD and PLM systems, which can be useful sometimes.

So this is it! We really hope you could get the most of this 3DEXPERIENCE Customer FORUM North America 2013, being on site or if you followed us online through the various social networks. It was a real pleasure for all of us at Dassault Systèmes to welcome you, discover your new projects, understand your challenges and try to find ways to help you to be successful. 

Some of you asked us about the date of next year's event. We'll keep you posted very soon!
In the meantime, don't forget to check regularly to get the latest news on 3DS partners!

Here we are folks, the first day of this year's 3DEXPERIENCE Customer FORUM North America is over (time for gambling now, maybe ;-)). What a day! We had the chance to share our vision with our customers, partners, analysts, journalists. And, for sure, it looks like the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform gets a positive echo among all our communities.

One of the highlights of the day was Lynn Tilton's (founder and CEO of Patriarch Partners) speech during the plenary session. Her vision of the role of an entrepreneur, the way a company has to adapt to survive, the place of dreams in innovation or how Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE Platform can contribute to make a better world,… is so inspiring!

The possibilities offered by the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform were illustrated by Paul Lomangino, Director of Engineering Applications at Tesla Motors and Olivier Sappin, VP for the Transportation and Mobility Industry at Dassault Systèmes. Connecting the dots within a company and even outside with suppliers, OEMs, etc… is what the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform is all about and perfectly illustrated by the Tesla case.

Now, let's have a look at what our partners brought in Vegas. Amazing things as you can imagine. This is when you go through the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground that you realize how the 3DS ecosystem is rich and the value it brings to customer is huge.

We first stopped by Boxx's booth to meet Brian and Joe. Boxx is a Technology Partner delivering high performance workstations specializing on high performance rendering (several GPUs working in parallel).

Next to Boxx is zSpace. Randy and Gregg welcomed us and presented us combined solutions for immersive 3D virtual learning experiences which was developed in cooperation with the 3DVIA Composer team.

Our well established partner Barco was here too with its huge 3D screen. Huge doesn't mean hard to handle for Barco! See: it only takes 40 minutes to get this 4K 8.5ft x 5ft out of its transportation container and have it running! Add another couple of hours for alignment and you're done!

Back to software now with a famous PLM MarketPlace partner: Geometric Limited. Manish, Jeff and Ashish detailed their different levels of partnerships with Dassault Systèmes which include, among others, software development and reseller. Their final motivation is to "empower the business intent".

One of the Gold sponsors of the event is another PLM MarketPlace partner: CoastalLogic. As you may know, this company develops solutions for batch printing and PDF rendering right in ENOVIA: printLogic and convertLogic. Shaun Dawson, the company's CEO held a session for the Aerospace & Defense industry in order to demonstrate how his solution can help companies to solve document stamping in today's environment of rapidly-changing requirements.

As you can see with this first overview, there's a 3DS partner for almost everything! We'll continue our tour in the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground tomorrow. Bear with us to discover more partners and the value they bring to the market!

Now, it's time for gambling! :-)

One last thing: if you wish to follow the event on Twitter, the ashtag is #3DXforum! And if you have questions, don't hesitate to ask using this ashtag.

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?

An international company and global leader in business aviation service has turned to 3D modeling of the plane’s interior to design, produce, and assemble Boeing B737 BBJ2 furnishings.

There were 2 steps to the project:

1. Conducting a full scan of the plane interior
A team of Creaform 3D scanning experts travelled to the client’s facilities in Germany, equipped with Handyscan 3D scanners, a Leica long-range scanner, MetraSCAN optical CMM 3D scanners with C-Track sensors and a MAXscan for the photogrammetry part. Once the data was acquired and compiled, the files were post-processed before being transferred to Creaform’s CAD Department in Lévis (Canada) for phase 2.

2. Creating 3D model files

Using CATIA V5 software, Creaform designers reconstructed the plane’s interior, including the various elements of the plane’s structure, such as floor beams and plates, frames, longerons, mechanisms, and various types of piping and wiring. Work was broken down into parts according to the plane’s sections. Using digital files, solid models of airplane elements were recreated. These solid models can be sectioned, and planes or surfaces can be built directly on top of them. For objects with continuous sections, solid models were generated either as an extruded section following a direction or as a scanned section following a trajectory. For non-continuous parts (e.g., in the case of certain mechanisms), the elements were broken down into basic pieces that could be redefined using simple geometric functions. Surface models were used to render some objects whose shapes were too complex. The surface models were then thickened to obtain solid models. In the case of this reconstruction, the degree of precision required enabled us to reuse reconstructed elements in different places, such as for the pulleys that guide the control cables.

Finally, all reconstruction files were assembled to produce a 3D model of a Boeing B737 interior, used by the aviation service company to design, produce, and assemble the plane’s interior furnishings to meet the needs of its demanding clientele.

Are you aware of similar projects (in the aerospace industry or not) using the same process?

One of the mottos of PLM MarketPlace has always been "Connecting Partners". We believe that joining forces is the best way to deliver all the value companies can bring to customers. This is what Dassault Systèmes and its ecosystem do.

Today, we would like to share a story we are quiet proud of. You have surely heared of Noomeo, a French 3D scanners manufacturer. They are very active on the PLM MarketPlace blog. Thanks to the PLM MarketPlace, Noomeo found a new business partner located several thousands kilometers away from Toulouse, where they are based!

Noomeo signed a distribution agreement with MediaTec (Mexico) at le Bourget Airshow last June. Both companies came to each other thanks to the PLM MarketPlace of Dassault Systèmes. "The long term cooperation inside the Dassault Systèmes ecosystem gives back results in terms of networking and partners around the world", said Vincent LEMONDE, CEO of Noomeo. 

"MediaTec is proud to represent Noomeo in this area of the world. In Mexico, both the education and industrial markets grow very fast. The orientation of OptiNum and NumiSoft toward the industrial needs corresponds perfectly to the expectations of the customers of MediaTec", said Alfred RODRIGUEZ President of MediaTec.

Bringing Noomeo's solutions to the Mexican market is clearly a great achievement for both companies and will, of course, benefit to local customers. The web has the power to reduce time and distances but when talking about business, proximity and contact in real life are key, don't you agree?

As you read in Alexandre's "ECF2010: first agora tour" blogpost, Noomeo was present at this major customer event, as a Dassault Systèmes' technological partner. We were delighted to welcome visitors at our booth, showing the value and capabilities of the OptiNum 3D scanner. In addition, Ludovic BRETHES, our CSO, held a conference in partnership with Dassault Aviation, about "Automatic control of complex assembly using 3D Digital Mockup and Scanning". As you can see, around 90 people were happy to discover this new and promising cooperation:

For the 3rd year, Noomeo participated at the Euromold trade show in Frankfurt (Germany), from December 1st to 4th, 2010. Once again, it’s a new success for OptiNum and our team!

The OptiNum 3D scanner "shines" and "flashes" again thanks to its innovative features, in front of the 60.000 visitors coming from all around the world. The rich diversity among the exhibitors present this year confirms us the importance of OptiNum's place in the industrial market. The different experts from Moldmaking and Tooling to Design and Application Development were mainly interested by the new features related to "edge measurement" and "point clouds regular sampling".

But... during the show, the elements were against us! We faced flights delays due to the snow which led to some luggage lost, set up the booth in the middle of the night, all of this in a cold and icy weather... We, living in Toulouse and its 20°C in early December, we are not used to that :-). Nevertheless, we found some energy and were in the starting blocks, ready to welcome you!

See you next year!

The number of displays may vary by board design and you should confirm exact specifications with the applicable manufacturer before purchase. ATI Eyefinity technology works with games that support non-standard aspect ratios, which is required for panning across multiple displays. To enable more than two displays, additional panels with native DisplayPort connectors, and/or certified DisplayPort adapters to convert your monitor’s native input to your cards DisplayPort™ or Mini-DisplayPort connector(s), are required. Driver version 8.66 (Catalyst 9.10) or above is also required.

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.
