Rapid Manufacturing Coming On Strong

Dassault Systemes announced continued implementation in China's aviation industry. Dassault Systemes has installed more than 3,000 CATIA V5 licenses with over 15 Chinese aviation companies who are using it for their 3D virtual design needs. Industry analysts claim that by the year 2020, China will need more than 2,600 new commercial aircrafts to cover demand. They predict that China will stand as the world's second largest aerospace market, after the United States. In addition to using CATIA for their 3D virtual design needs, Chinese aircraft manufacturers are also adopting CATIA V5 specialized applications specific to design and manufacturing for composites, as well as sheet metal, while deploying Dassault's PLM product suite. The First Aircraft Institute, Dassault Systemes' largest Chinese customer, now uses Dassaults' complete range of PLM solutions in addition to CATIA, including DELMIA, ENOVIA, SIMULIA.

SolidWorks Supports Contest To Develop Products For People With Disabilities
High school students will be able to use free licenses of SolidWorks this year competing to design products that will help people with disabilities enter or advance in the workplace. SolidWorks' sponsorship means contestants in the National Engineering Design Challenge (NEDC) will have access to the software. Coordinated by the Junior Engineering Technical Society (JETS) and the Javits-Wagner-O'Day (JWOD) program, NEDC fuels student enthusiasm in engineering by immersing them in real-world challenges that people with disabilities face every day. Beginning in September, students formed teams and chose the problem they wanted to address or tackled one suggested by competition staff. Students must interview people with disabilities to learn exactly what their challenges are, and what suggested solutions they have. Students will then design and build a working prototype that a panel of judges will determine merits invitation to the final round in February during National Engineering Week in Washington, DC.
