  • Pre-Conference Workshops: In-depth workshops on topics such as Topology Optimization Using the Functional Generative Design (GDE) Application, CATIA V5 to 3DEXPERIENCE transition and more
  • Dassault Systèmes certification exams
  • The latest user experience feedback and findings from the 3DEXPERIENCE Discovery Panel
  • COE Forum’s Q+A with Dassault Systèmes executives and industry leaders

What's in it for me?


Become an expert! The COE Annual Experience & TechniFair presents a unique opportunity for customers to hear from fellow experts across the customer, partner and Dassault spectrum. In addition to important industry and product updates, attendees benefit from real world customer case studies, best practices sharing sessions, hands-on training, and the opportunity to engage one-on-one with peers to solve problems and share ideas.

Can’t-Miss Product Definition Process Sessions at the 2017 COE Experience & TechniFair

Composites Roundtable

This will be a roundtable discussion focused on Composites Engineering & manufacturing processes. Explore the decisions that a designer has to think about to take full advantage of Composites Manufacturing. Allowables based on ply orientation or getting certified materials. Mesostructure specification or explicit definition. Inspection. The discussion will not be limited to the above topics and audience input will be encouraged.

Composites discussion of hot topics, issues, work scenarios, user questions.

CATIA Assembly Design Essentials (ASD)

This course will teach you how to create a simple product structure, and how to add existing components and position them correctly. You will also learn how to analyze assemblies, design complex parts within an assembly environment and manage complex product structures.

Students attending this course should have basic knowledge of the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and should be familiar with Part Design in CATIA.

CATIA Generative Shape Design Essentials (GSD)

This course will teach you how to use the Generative Shape Design app to create curves and surfaces. You will learn how to assemble, re-limit and connect the geometries smoothly. You will also learn how to analyze the wireframe and the surface quality and rectify the detected defects.

Configuration Management in CATIA V6 2013x

Demonstration on how Configuration works at Bell Helicopter using CATIA V6 and ENOVIA. Will walk through the process of creating PUEECO, Configured Part in ENOVIA and synchronizing to CATIA V6. Where a user will then build a BOM and sync back to ENOVIA for release under a specific effectivity range.

Topology Optimization and CAD Reconstruction with 3D Experience

This presentation will explore Functional Generative Design which is a new physics based design tool that places topology optimization in the hands of the CAD designer. Functional Generative Design breaks the barriers between modeling, simulation and optimization.

Additive Manufacturing for Windtunnel Testing

Design for 3D printing/additive manufacturing through material combinations to balance structural strength, weight, and surface quality for windtunnel entry. Design for modular design for a wide variety of aircraft configurations.

CATIA Electrical 3D Design Essentials (EHI)

This course will teach you to create electrical physical system in the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform and thereby help you in designing the electrical physical systems. You will work with the catalogs to place the components from the electrical libraries. You will learn the routing of branches for creating electrical branch geometries, managing the electrical geometry content, and routing conductors through the electrical geometry. You will also learn the 3D Master Approach of annotating the electrical physical system.

Electro-Mechanical Roundtable

The implementation of 3D CATIA Electrical Wire Harness models their supporting tools, processes and associated PDMs/PLMs are a challenge to all companies.

This roundtable draws on experience from Aerospace, Automotive and Dassault experts to address these challenges. The session starts with your issues and if time allows moves to a set of thought-starter questions, use cases, their benefits and drawbacks.
