Simplify Your 3D Models: Collaborative Engineering From Design to CAE and Downstream Processes

Increasing digitalization and global value-added networks have a strong impact on collaborative engineering. Companies are facing large amounts of data that need to be stored securely, transferred efficiently between partners, customers, suppliers, etc., and handled in various tools in defined business and engineering processes. 3D data is playing an important role as a communication medium throughout the entire product lifecycle - from conceptual design to downstream processes including CAE analyses, manufacturing, and after-sales - and therefore requires reliable IP protection. The value of 3D product information is even increased through approaches like Model-Based Enterprise and Model-Based Systems Engineering. This 20-minute webinar, demonstrates how 3D models serve as a key enabler for successful digitalization in heterogeneous system landscapes and efficient reuse of CAD data in CAE analyses and downstream processes as only the necessary information are processed. This webinar features CADdoctor by Elysium, available through the Altair Partner Alliance.

Simplify Your 3D Models – Collaborative Engineering Based on Lightweight CAD Data

In collaborative engineering environments, handling large-size 3D CAD models with a high level of detail is becoming more and more challenging. Especially sharing of 3D CAD models between OEMs and suppliers as well as utilization in downstream processes require file size reduction for sufficient performance and IP (Intellectual Property) protection while maintaining the initial design intent. In this context, simplification of 3D geometry provides a valuable solution to companies through enveloping, defeaturing, and extraction of inner/outer surfaces. Lightweight CAD models enable the efficient sharing and communication of relevant 3D product information as the storage of redundant and confidential data is avoided. This is an important basis for efficient collaborative engineering in globally distributed development.

Simplify your 3D Models: Use Cases for Automotive Engineering and Simulation

This webinar will cover the latest trends in 3D CAD data optimization and what you will see in the latest version release of CADdoctor. In automotive engineering and simulation, it is becoming more and more challenging to handle large size 3D models with a high level of detail. This is especially true when sharing 3D models between OEMs and suppliers in the design stage, as well as utilization in downstream processes and manufacturing required file size reduction for sufficient performance and IP (Intellectual Property) protection while maintaining the initial design intent. In this context, simplification of 3D geometry provides a valuable solution to companies through enveloping, defeaturing and extraction of inner/outer surfaces. Simplification accelerates the creation of simulation models. Using advanced healing technologies, a consistent quality level can be ensured. Furthermore, lightweight 3D models enable the efficient sharing and communication of relevant 3D product information as the storage of redundant and confidential data is avoided. This is an important basis for efficient automotive engineering and simulation in globally distributed development.
