Paris 2017: Dassault Systèmes focuses on 3D
Dassault Systèmes will be highlighting its recently inaugurated 3DEXPERIENCE Center on the Wichita State University (WSU) Innovation Campus.
At this year’s Paris Air Show (19th-23rd June), Dassault Systemes - a specialist in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions - will highlight its 3DEXPERIENCE Center, located within the Experiential Engineering Building (EEB) on the Wichita State University (WSU) Innovation Campus.
The centre, officially opened on 27th April, allows companies to engage in advanced systems development and the manufacturing of next-generation materials and technologies.
Born through a partnership between the National Institute for Aviation Research (NIAR) and Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Center offers expertise and technology to companies from the aviation sector and other industries.
The Innovation Campus will consist of 29 buildings located on 120 acres, including nine partner buildings, with Airbus already occupying the first.
Bringing together the virtual and the real, the 3DEXPERIENCE Center offers a range of capabilities to accelerate the innovation from concept to take-off:
• Customer Collaboration Rooms allow teams up to 8 people across all functions to work together in one place on a single platform. These rooms include high resolution screens, web conferencing and other collaboration tools along with the full suite of solutions from Dassault Systèmes.
• Virtual Reality Technologies deliver experiences as they are being designed. It is possible to explore new designs in fully immersive 3D and see the results of multiple simulations including bird strikes, multi-physics analysis and many others.
• Additive manufacturing allows engineers to create custom parts as well as optimize standard parts for cost and weight – typically resulting in a 70% or more reduction in cost and weight.
• Multi-Robotics Additive Manufacturing (MRAM) makes it possible to explore any shape without restriction and reduce material waste by up to 90% as well as optimize manufacturing techniques using the latest in robotics. MRAM can 3D print chopped fiber composite, mill, scan and execute many other advanced manufacturing techniques to accelerate production, lower the number of parts and eliminate manufacturing waste.
• Reverse Engineering and Inspection allows engineers to scan complex parts to create new virtual representations as well as to inspect new parts for certification and quality control.
On the Dassault Systèmes booth in Paris, an interactive experience will be available for visitors demonstrating the use of 3D to enhance the performance of field operations, extending value of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to MRO using augmented reality. Field operators will be guided through the reconfiguration of the UAS to accomplish a specific mission.
