Adaptive to Present at COExperience 2019

Join us at COE 2019
February 24-27
New Orleans Marriott

Join Adaptive at this three day event that brings together expert users of Dassault Systèmes solutions. In addition to the keynote presentations be sure to attend presentations by Adaptive’s own Jon Gable, and Michael Craffey, Brian Lau, and Jonathan Scott from Razorleaf.

These include:

Create an Achievable Roadmap for Implementing 3DEXPERIENCE

Presented by Jon Gable, Director of Sales, Adaptive and Uwe Rieger, Global Manager, PLM & CAD, nVENT

The Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE solution can touch most aspects of a company’s processes to conceive, develop, deliver, and service a product.  Yet, the people most often tasked to investigate 3DEXPERIENCE often come from the product design function.  This presents a challenge for how to make others in the company recognize the benefits of 3DEXPERIENCE beyond traditional PDM solutions.  Attendees to this session will learn:

How to get cross-functional buy-in for your 3DEXPERIENCE project

How to create a 3-5 year roadmap for success

How to achieve your first success to build momentum

3DEXPERIENCE Visualization Options

Presented by Michael Craffey, Razorleaf, supported by Brian Lau of Razorleaf

3DReview, 3DPlay, AutoVue, PDF viewing, and more are various ways of visualizing data in 3DEXPERIENCE. But do you need ALL of these capabilities? What are the pros, cons, and challenges of each of these visualization capabilities available on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, and when might you use one over another? This session will dive into all of these questions, and demonstrate several of these capabilities in the context of common day-to-day scenarios.

Getting Back on Track with ENOVIA & 3DEXPERIENCE 2017x

Presented by Vetri Chidambaram, Oceaneering, supported by Jonathan Scott, Razorleaf

Digital transformation has become essential for companies who wish to remain competitive. Oceaneering recognizes, and is acting on, this important trend. Although ENOVIA (and MatrixOne) have been in use at Oceaneering for many years, the system is undergoing significant reinvigoration within OLL’s business units. By developing a comprehensive PLM strategic roadmap, and then executing on that plan with deep support from Adaptive and Razorleaf, Oceaneering has been able to expand its global footprint of ENOVIA usage & adoption with 3DEXPERIENCE 2017x. In this session, we will describe how Oceaneering brought more value out of PLM than it costs, and how we turned the “PLM ship” around in the last few years. We will discuss Oceaneering’s strategic direction of de-customization to stay closer to out-of-the-box (OOTB) capabilities, to enable faster cycle time for upgrades, as well as to support the organization’s need for up-to-date CAD software in our multi-CAD environment.

Multi-CAD Nirvana with POWER’BY

Presented by Brian Lau, Razorleaf, supported by Michael Craffey, Razorleaf

The challenges of working with different CAD formats within the same product design have been obvious for years (decades). With the introduction of POWER’BY, some of those problems finally go away. Attend this session to see several practical examples of how multi-CAD design activities are made simpler through the use of POWER’BY on 3DEXPERIENCE.

Real-World Examples of the Digital Thread

Presented by Jonathan Scott, Razorleaf, supported by Brian Lau, Razorleaf

Digital Thread gets a lot of discussion, but everyone’s definition is different. In this session, we will discuss the definition of the Digital Thread and why it is important before continuing forward to look at some real world examples of a Digital Thread. Live software will be demonstrated to show the Digital Thread.

Convergence and Contact in Abaqus/Standard Webinar

December 6
3 p.m. EST

Join Dassault Systèmes  for the webinar Convergence and Contact in Abaqus/Standard on December 6.

Convergence of the nonlinear solution method in Abaqus/Standard is of interest to everyone who uses the code. Nonlinear simulations very often include contact. Convergence and contact are therefore closely connected. This eSeminar is an overview of the nonlinear solution method and a discussion of contact modeling in Abaqus/Standard.


  • Understand how Abaqus/Standard produces results for nonlinear models in general, and for models with contact in particular
  • Learn about the latest recommended contact methods
  • Learn more about the Newton-Raphson nonlinear solution method and contact in Abaqus/Standard
  • Enhance your ability to build robust nonlinear simulations

Who should attend the eSeminar?

Engineers and engineering managers who have a working knowledge of the code and interested to know more nonlinear solution method and contact in Abaqus/Standard are invited to attend.

Register now.

Markforged’s Guide to 3D Printing on the Production Line

Markforged has released a new Guide to 3D printing on the production line. 

3D Printing on the Production LineMany manufacturers have realized significant cost savings and productivity improvements by integrating high strength additive manufacturing (AM) technology into their business, especially in support of their maintenance, repair and operations (MRO) strategy. For many more, identifying where additive will be most impactful to their business can be a daunting task, and increasingly one that corporate leadership has directed plants to investigate. This white paper provides structure and clarity to that ask by demonstrating strategies and applications for integrating high strength AM opportunities on the manufacturing floor.

Use Simulation to Power Innovation in Life Sciences

Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death worldwide. Surgical intervention, including the use of balloon angioplasty and stent insertion, remains a life-saver for many patients. Stent designers and manufacturers are continually searching for the most efficient way to produce their product to the highest standards of quality.

By refining designs early in the conceptual process, computer simulation is helping leading medical device companies understand the in-vivo performance and surgical delivery of coronary stents to further optimize device behavior for better patient outcomes.
