Mr. Eaves has been with CGTech as a Technical Support Engineer for VERICUT software since 2017. He has more than 12 years of manufacturing experience. His professional career began at United Machining Services working as a Mill Machinist. Later, he became a CNC Programmer atNational Oilwell Varco for a variety of 2, 3, 4, and 5 axis machines, as well as Mill turn and multi-tasking machines. In his seven years at Nation Oilwell Varco, his work involved, implementing the latest CNC programming technics, machinery, and machining technics. In Mr. Eaves’ role as Technical Support Engineer for CGTech, he designs many general-purpose and customized training courses, supplies technical support to end-user customers, and provides manufacturing consulting services to numerous companies in virtually every industry. 

Webinar Abstract 
In today’s competitive environment, it’s important to produce high quality NC code that protects expensive cutting tools and machinery while maximizing material removal rates. There are a variety of tools available in simulation software to produce more efficient programs and better quality parts. Simulation software not only protects your equipment from unexpected collisions, but also offers analytical tools to help avoid things like excessive spindle loads, tool deflection, and chip load. It can even use internal diagnostics to dynamically update feeds and speeds for optimal material removal while maintaining the tool path of the original program.

Managing a Configured Hybrid Catia 3DX/Catia V5 BOM structure in 3DEXPERIENCE 2018x  (Members: free. Non-Members: $150.00)

Presented by: Mecanica Solutions

Wednesday, November 28, 11:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. CT


Rosario Di Lollo, Sales Engineer, Mecanica Solutions 

Webinar Abstract 
The webinar will make use of a Configured BOM composed of both Catia 3DX & Catia V5 native CAD data – leveraging the new Multi-CAD Power’By modules available on 3DEXPERIENCE 2018x. We aim to show attendants how configured structures can be used by both non CAD users (via the new webtop 18x Dashboards) as well as Catia 3DX users.


Create View/Capture/Camera in CATIA by Importing Sets of Camera Data From Other Apps  (Members: free. Non-Members: $150.00)

Presented by: Weigang Hu, Senio System Analyst/Developer, The Boeing Company

Wednesday, December 5, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CT


Weigang Hu, Senior System Analyst/Developer, The Boeing Company 

Webinar Abstract 
In this presentation, the best practice of programmatically creating CATIA views / captures / cameras by importing camera datasets from external application(s) is described and demonstrated; The CATIA internal built-in process that creates view/capture/camera objects dynamically and establishes the relationship among those objects programmatically is discussed as well; 
In this presentation, we also described in detail on DS CATIA CAA API issues that we discovered during the development process, and on lessons learned, solutions to solve the API issues, tips and techniques, etc. Working code examples for creating CATIA camera, capture and view objects are also presented; 
At the end of this presentation, an illustration example of a real Production Illustration (PI) case is demonstrated with snapshots of pictures.


Accelerate NPI -- Visualize, Validate and Document with 3DEXPERIENCE Virtual Build  (Members: free. Non-Members: $150.00)

Presented by: Justin Brooks, PLM Application Engineer, Inceptra

Tuesday, December 18, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. CT


Justin Brooks, PLM Application Engineer, Inceptra 

Webinar Abstract 
Webinar Abstract: Design, Validate & Document your Processes! 
* Identify and resolve problems early in the planning phase 
* Validate process without physical prototypes and resource investment 
* Capture and re-use best practices 
* Generate shop floor documentation and worker training material 

Working in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, planners get a precise understanding of the time and effort involved with each operation and the impact of planning changes. The Virtual Build Solution provides a 3D environment to visualize and document manufacturing plans and provides world-wide access from any engineering or production site. Integrated engineering change management and impact analysis gives the ability to react fast to design changes, and multiple product variants and models can be easily handled. Assembly Planners can review the process and product build-up in the context of the assembly line – even if the line or the factory doesn’t exist yet.
