Why is 3DEXPERIENCE useful in aeronautics?


Very early on, Dassault Aviation chose 3DEXPERIENCE to collaborate. Indeed as early as May 2018, the company announced on its website the switch to the new version of CATIA. Like many other aeronautics contractors ( Airbus, Boeing, etc.), Dassault has chosen the platform. It has become the new standard of innovation for 3D CAD, PDM, PLM and collaboration in the broadest sense of the theme. We can clearly state that 3DEXPERIENCE in aeronautics is a must.

New versions of the Falcon, updates to the Rafale, and the arrival of new ranges of fighter aircraft and UAVs all require agile tools. Reducing product development time has become the number one goal. This is clearly the objective of the platform, with integrated 3D design tools such as CATIA, SIMULIAtechnical data management applications, the 3DXP brings about 300 applications, most of which can be used in the cloud and give engineers real-time access to the tools they need.

The 3DEXPERIENCE Digital Twin


The ability to innovate around a virtual model (often called “Digital Twin”) is a crucial point for all companies. This is even more true in the aeronautics industry, where, given the size of the projects, many subcontractors and co-contractors are involved. This ability to work on the same models in a secure and easy way is therefore the challenge. The 3DEXPERIENCE provides this flexibility. Thanks to a common and reliable database, uncertainties related to data exchange are avoided. The entire aeronautical subcontracting chain thus gains in flexibility and quality.

XD Innovation : The Cloud for aeronautics

XDI Innovation is the specialist in the integration of 3DEXPERIENCE in the CLOUD. With its XDI Manage for PDM in the Cloud and XDI3D for 3D CAD online, XDI’s teams are helping the aeronautics subcontracting chain to adopt 3DEXPERIENCE. Through an innovative package of services and 3DEXPERIENCE training, XDI assists small and medium-sized aeronautical companies in the adoption of these new standard tools
