Safran and Dassault Systèmes have entered into strategic partnership for additive manufacturing

Also known as 3D-printing, additive manufacturing uses computer-aided design, engineering, manufacturing and materials science software to generate 3D models of parts and subsystems, which are then built using successive layers of materials.

Using Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform and Safran’s expertise in innovative technologies, the companies will develop expertise for virtual validation of an additive manufacturing process.

Dassault Systèmes R&D senior executive vice-president Dominique Florack said: “Our 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s strategy covers all aspects of the additive manufacturing process, from material design to conceptual design, generative design to manufacturing, and certification to repair.

“Together with Safran, we can nurture virtual world processes for a complete approach in this field that will help revolutionise tomorrow’s manufacturing.”

The new process will facilitate upstream material design, downstream manufacturing processes and testing to offer digital continuity for various engineering parameters. Read more..

Are PLM Software Vendors Diversifying?

Human hearts, 3D printers, gold mines, and traffic management are not necessarily the things you would expect out of PLM software vendors, but these are all related to the evolving strategies of these companies. None of those topics may be related to your day-to-day work, but understanding how the major PLM software companies are diversifying could help you make better decisions about aligning with specific PLM vendors.
