Aras Provides Embedded CAD to 3D PDF Converter in PLM
During its ACE 2013 user conference, Aras, an open source product lifecycle management (PLM) software provider, announced a computer-aided design (CAD) to 3D

2d cad  3D (and typically not 2D drawings, schematics, etc.), require separate licenses, and force content lock-in. Aras uses the HOOPS technology from Tech Soft 3D for the conversion of all the major 3D CAD formats including Dassault CATIA and  SolidWorks, PTC Creo, Siemens NX ,  JT, and STEP . Thus, 3D content created by CAD can now be converted to standard PDF and then used in work instructions, technical publications, digital mock-up, and more. Various stakeholders can collaborate via 3D measurements,

Dalian Shipyard Transforms Shipbuilding in China with PTC Product Development Tools


After adopting two-dimensional computer-aided design (2D CAD) in the 1990s, Dalian Shipyard discovered that 2D technology didn’t meet the real-world challenges facing ship designers. For example, 2D CAD could not graphically reproduce real ship design challenges, such as collisions. Dalian Shipyard needed better product lifecycle management (PLM) tools. The solution: CADDS 5i—a complete 3D CAD tool for shipbuilding.

The Different Evolutionary Stages of ERP and PLM


The product development life cycle - innovate, conceptualize, plan, design, procure, produce, deliver, service, and retire - naturally includes multiple people, operating in multiple departments, and typically from multiple companies, each with locations in multiple countries around the world. Solving inherent difficulties that result from managing this complexity are the raison d’être for PLM solutions.

2d cad  Different Evolutionary Stages of ERP and PLM The State of the PLM Market Given the relative immaturity of the product lifecycle management (PLM) movement, PLM often means different things to different people. Namely, due to its deep engineering roots from the 1980s, it still often gets confused with computer aided design (CAD) and/or product data management (PDM) systems. While CAD involves the use of high-resolution graphics in a wide range of product design activities, allowing quick evaluation and mo Read More
