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.

Wednesday, 10 November 2010

This is day 2 of this year's Dassault Systèmes Customers Conference (DSCC2010). With PLM MarketPlace being there these two days, in a way, all our Referenced Partners made the trip to Florida!

But as we said in some previous blogposts, a few of them are really present in Orlando. This is the case of Forcefive (Gold sponsor) and CoastalLogic (Silver sponsor). I invite you to know a little bit more about them...

I first met the Forcefive team made of Stefan Bikanic, Christian Fritz, Thomas Schmidt and Ian Phillips. Forcefive held a conference based on an usecase at BMW: "Accelerating innovation in global automotive development" which was successful in terms of attendees. Their solution, Fast Concept Modeller, enables very fast creation of models and their variants and reduces cycle times at the early concept stages. Stefan was pretty happy to be there at DSCC2010, "where everything is done the American way, everything is huge". If you did not have the opportunity to meet the Forcefive team in Orlando, they'll be present at ECF 2010 in a couple of weeks in Paris and will present some fresh content during a session.

The Forcefive Team

My next visit was to Shaun Dawson, Khanh Dao, Wayne Hoit and Andrea Young, the CoastalLogic's team. CoastalLogic joined PLM MarketPlace a few months ago. At DSCC2010, people had the opportunity to enjoy live demos of two of their products working with ENOVIA: printLogic for batch printing and convertLogic for PDF rendering. These solutions allow high customization and are very easy to use. "DSCC was for us an opportunity to interact with existing clients and prospects. It was an enjoyable experience" Shaun told me. He'll be also in Paris for the ECF 2010 looking forward to meeting new people.

The CoastaLogic team

From my perspective, I had a really good time there, networking with experts from our partners but also with customers. It is always a pleasure to make them discover our ecosystem of partners and the value they can bring to their Dassault Systèmes configuration.

It is now time to fly back to Paris, have some post-DSCC2010 calls and meetings. And also to prepare our next big event: ECF 2010! Don't miss the opportunity to meet us there!

See you in Paris in a couple of week.

Anthony Rosendo, on behalf of the PLM MarketPlace Team

Recently, Coastal Logic became one of our newest PLM Marketplace members. We thought it would be interesting to share some additional information about this dynamic company.

Coastal Logic is the leading provider of out-of-the-box printing and PDF rendering solutions for Enovia MatrixOne.

The company was founded in 2002 in response to a demand for capabilities lacking in PLM database software systems. Many PLM users have the need for robust, enterprise-controlled batch printing and PDF rendering solutions. Coastal Logic was formed to address the growing demand for commercial, out-of-the-box solutions that help companies ensure regulatory compliance, increase efficiency and accelerate profit.

Today, Coastal Logic solutions are globally deployed in a wide variety of industries including Aerospace, Industrial, Medical, and Energy manufacturing. One such client installation is at Smith and Nephew.

Smith and Nephew is a global medical device manufacturing company with operations in 33 countries and annual sales of over $2.6 billion. Prior to adopting Coastal Logic software, Smith and Nephew was running on a legacy custom-built platform for printing documents and drawings on the shop floor. As with many internally-built systems of this sort, this solution became brittle and difficult to maintain over time. One challenge of this Coastal Logic successfully installed printLogic to handle their printing requirements, along with some additional custom interface development to make the system work with their current shop floor processes. The resulting installation works seamlessly with their existing process and has the benefits of full support and maintainability. The project has been a huge success.

The out-of-the-box Coastal Logic solutions include two flagship products, convertLogic, which automatically stamps documents and renders them to PDF, and printLogic, which gives Enovia users a "print" button, right in the web interface, that allows them to print metadata-stamped documents without needing to use viewing software or native applications.

convertLogic helps to enable regulatory compliance and increase document transportability by converting files into secure, metadata-stamped PDF or TIFF files. Conversions are triggered automatically by PLM lifecycle events and occur on dedicated servers, so there is no additional load on the RMI servers.

printLogic enables Enovia users to create secure, metadata-stamped prints directly from the Enovia web interface. Prints can be queued one or hundreds at a time, and virtually any data can be extracted from the database and applied to prints. 

What are some issues that you have had with Enovia with regards to printing or file format conversions? Tell us about it in the comments.

Shaun, for Coastal Logic
