CCE Updates ‘SmartPicking’ Tools in ReVue

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI, May 18, 2022 – CCE, a leading provider of advanced CAD interoperability solutions, announced additional improvements to the ‘SmartPicking’ tools in ReVue software to increase efficiency of users participating in engineering design reviews using large CAD assemblies.

From the initial introduction earlier in the year where users were given the ability to toggle between multiple sub-assemblies when they pick a specific tool and see the results of the operation in real time, to the more recent update where they can hide that component from the viewable area or open it for full-screen display, the goal has always been to provide a richer experience for users, especially those working with large assemblies. In this latest update, users can now interactively select a part or sub-assembly and not only move the component in linear X,Y,Z directions along the axis, but also be able to pick planes to rotate the part along the axes. All this can be done using minimal mouse travel and clicks.

“We are going all-in on making it easier for people to collaborate using large CAD assemblies. A lot of our users deal with data from formats like CATIA V5 & NX. We are singularly focused on making them more efficient,” said Vinay Wagle, CCE’s VP of sales and marketing.

EnSuite-Cloud ReVue is a revolutionary web-based real-time engineering design review software that allows users to securely review CAD data across the Product Development Lifecycle. Whenever there is a need to review 2D/3D CAD data in the product development process, ​ReVue provides a secure platform for collaboration with your team or suppliers.​ Users can review 2D/3D designs of all the latest versions from CATIA V5, 3DXML, NX, Creo, SOLIDWORKS, Inventor, Solid Edge, JT, Parasolid and glTF among others.

Key benefits of using EnSuite-Cloud ReVue for secure online meetings for engineering design reviews include:

  • Independent Local control of review session without compromising intellectual property
  • High-quality 3D rendering with zero loss of fidelity of viewable data
  • Natural collaboration experience without any overhead for data or session preparation
  • Ultra-low latency allowing for excellent response/refresh rates
  • Low bandwidth usage allowing for easy sharing of large CAD models
  • Screen-sharing option for non-CAD documents for richer review sessions

All new users can Test Drive ReVue to evaluate the product using just their Google or Microsoft emails. Users can visit the EnSuite-Cloud ReVue page for additional product and pricing information.

CAF Selects Dassault’s 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

VELIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France, May 16, 2022 – Dassault Systèmes announced that the CAF Group, the Spanish supplier of comprehensive transit solutions to customers worldwide, has completed the deployment of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Already a Dassault Systèmes customer for many years, CAF migrated its solutions and data to the platform as part of its technological strategy to improve overall productivity throughout its value network and accelerate the time-to-market of its rolling stock, wheelsets, and traction and communication systems.

CAF is relying on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to improve design and engineering, data management, and global efficiency. Around 1,200 users at CAF and its suppliers can work together on one business experience platform that ensures digital continuity and access to a single source of information. CAF can quickly search for, retrieve and reuse design information across multiple product configurations, speed up decision-making with a more automated and integrated change management process, and use virtual twins and virtual reality to validate prototypes with customers.

“The 3DEXPERIENCE platform transforms our design and engineering internally and how we access product definition outside of engineering. Having a fast and reactive organization and technology enables us to efficiently meet thousands of different project requirements with innovative and high added-value products,” said Sergio Heras, PLM director, CAF. “We’ve already started our first projects fully developed on the platform: rolling stock equipped with cutting-edge technology that will be used by commuters in Asia. It has allowed us to deploy the new processes defined in our transformation initiative, ‘MOVE.’”

“Public transport is a lever to reduce CO2 emissions due to transport. The rail industry has become more global and competitive in the last few years, requiring companies to be able to quickly fulfill customer needs at the right cost,” said Laurence Montanari, vice president, transportation & mobility industry, Dassault Systèmes. “The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables CAF to enhance collaboration, master complexity, and support all stakeholders to rapidly engineer and optimize mobility for comfort, safety and sustainability.”
