Dassault Systemes Integrates NVIDIA Technology Into CATIA

PARIS—(BUSINESS WIRE)—September 27, 2006 12:00 am—

Dassault Systemes (DS) (NASDAQ: DASTY)(Paris:DSY), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions today announced the integration of NVIDIA CgFX technology into CATIA V5. This allows designers using CATIA access to advanced visualization capabilities in 3D, creating a seamless engineering and design environment, to increase productivity and reduce product development costs.

“In increasingly diverse and international workplaces, cutting edge collaborative and virtual environments are critical to a company’s success. Employees need realistic images or movies of projects in real-time, to work effectively and drive innovation. Our customers need to be able to collect and visualize information from multiple sources, to make effective business decisions. Real-time 3D visualization allows our customers to act at any stage of a project and review products virtually. Before this required a physical prototype,” outlines Philippe Laufer, project coordination leader for CATIA Research & Development.

It is critical that design departments can easily share project status throughout an organization in real-time. This speeds decision-making processes and ensures consistency throughout a design project. Everybody within an organization needs access to the information they need when and as required, in 3D. Advanced visualization techniques mean that different organizations within a company can easily master the complexity of virtual products. The integration of Cg shaders into CATIA allows realistic interactive reviews. People have a “look & feel” experience from the earliest design stages.

"CgFX in Catia V5 delivers advanced interactive rendering by using the workstation's graphics processing unit (GPU)," explains Jeff Brown, general manager of NVIDIA Professional Solution Group. "With Cg integration, Dassault Systemes delivers interactive rendering into the PLM environment. This is very significant because it allows engineers, designers, and visualizations specialists to integrate their custom Cg shaders into initial design studies and through the product lifecycle process."

NVIDIA CgFX technology is integrated with Dassault Systemes’ CATIA Real Time Rendering 2, across DS’ complete PLM portfolio: CATIA, ENOVIA VPLM, DELMIA. This is available as part of Dassault Systemes’ Version 5 Release 17.
