Putting a Finer Point on Multi-CAD

Multi-CAD. Multi-CAD. Multi-CAD. It is all the rage today. You hear about it on webinars. You see it flashed at user conferences. It’s in many an eBook. But the more discussions I see on multi-CAD, the more I wonder if folks are really talking about the same thing. You see, there are many different facets to multi-CAD.

Is the Long Term Archival Landscape Changing?

Some things never change. Attend a CAD or PLM related conference and you’re bound to come across some angst-ridden presentations. Sometimes, it’s about software quality. Other times, it’s about the most requested feature that just never makes it into the new release. Consternation builds, and many worry such issues will never be resolved. Read the …

TransMagic: A Secret to Enabling Direct Modeling?

CAD translation constantly eats into engineering productivity. This post looks at TransMagic’s tools to enable Direct Modeling modifications of imported geometry.

Leveraging 3D CAD Data

Have you ever read Evan Yares’ stuff? If not, you’re missing out. He’s a really smart dude covering this space. Evan and I got to catch up at the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress, where I presented findings from the 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Study. A couple weeks ago, Evan wrote up his own analysis of the findings in a post titled Leveraging 3D CAD Data. And he didn’t just regurgitate statistics. He provided some pretty deep analysis. And it’s good.

Transition from 2D to 3D Design Hasn’t Been a Clean Break for Most, Study Finds

In todays product-development environments, 3D models play an important role in design as well as the overall development process — there’s little doubt about that. But how far have we really come in the adoption and use of 3D data for product development?

Validation Grows in Credibility at 3D Collaboration and Interoperability Congress

  “Users who participate in standards committee deliberations must be patient,” Jackson added. “Solution providers have to incorporate capabilities into future releases of their software to support these new standards. Users sometimes wait for years to see a definition they helped create implemented in the software applications, if it is implemented at all.” Real progress, …
