3D Printing: Fact vs. Fiction


3D printing (a.k.a., additive manufacturing) has lately been a hot theme in engineering and manufacturing, and it's still in its infancy. I've attended several product lifecycle management (PLM) and computer-aided design (CAD) conferences lately, and all had flashy displays from 3D printer providers, such as Stratasys or 3D Systems.

What’s New in the World of Design Components and Kernels?


Those folks that follow the 3D and 2D computer aided design (CAD) space are aware that all major design, manufacturing, and engineering software products are based on geometry modeling kernels and a variety of other development components.

If There's One Thing CRM Tells Us: Don't Do PLM the Same Way


Product lifecycle management (PLM) doesn't work, but it should. Industry's general approach and attitude to PLM mimics the early days of customer relationship management (CRM) adoption, and lessons from that experience should help when tackling the "ifs" and "hows" of PLM investment.

Challenge 1: Understand the Importance of Integration First and foremost, CRM Read More

Facilities Management is Moving Forward with Technology

Customization Drives Complexity - Why It's Hard to Design, Sell, and Produce "Simple" Products


It seems counterintuitive, but the process of selling, designing, and producing what appear to be "simple" products becomes surprisingly complex when manufacturers introduce high levels of customization. How can manufacturers of configured products address this complexity to streamline their processes, reduce cost and increase customer responsiveness?

Autodesk Expands Its Visualization Technology Footprint


Autodesk has been making significant investments to enhance its portfolio of visualization and computer-aided engineering (CAE) software, primarily by acquiring niche software vendors. In an effort to achieve more depth in its visualization portfolio, Autodesk has acquired PI-VR, a privately held German software vendor that focuses on 3D visualization technology. This acquisition is in line with

PLM (Vendors) and Lean Product Development -- Part 2: Dassault Systèmes


Part 1 of this blog post series discussed in general the relationship between product lifecycle management (PLM) and lean product development (LPD), and pointed out that various PLM vendors may have different interpretations of PLM functionality, as well as different levels of support for users’ LPD initiatives. In this and a few future blog posts, I will choose some PLM vendors and talk about the

Shifts in Payment Models for CAD Deployments


Given the recent desktop virtualization move for PTC Creo, it will be interesting to watch whether PTC will start offering subscriptions for some Creo apps (and Dassault Systèmes for SolidWorks). This is especially interesting in light of the recent move of Siemens Solid Edge to subscription licensing, and also since Autodesk is now offering its desktop and other design products on a pay-as-you-go

3d cad shareware  In terms of comparing 3D computer-aided design (CAD) offerings, one can put SolidWorks, Autodesk Inventor , Solid Edge, and even PTC CoCreate (now Creo/Elements Direct ) in the mid-market category, and Dassault CATIA, Siemens NX , and PTC Creo Parametric (formerly Pro/E ) in the large enterprise category. For the latter, I don’t see subscription or cloud models coming any time soon. The reason for Autodesk to do pay-as-you-go is that it fits with the vendor’s overall strategy in how it targets Read More

Best-of-Breed Versus Complete CAD-PLM Suites: The Debate Rages On


The PLM world is currently witness to fervent debate on the most appropriate type of PLM/CAD software. Best-of-breed solutions offer the needed capabilities and hence integrate the necessary software modules as per the customer’s needs, whereas all-in-one CAD/PLM suites attempt a “one size fits all” approach. In his report, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic provides his view on the intricacies of these two approaches.
