I work doing manufacturing process simulations and ergonomics in CATIA/DELMIA V5. The 3D models used are hosted in a Database so what I do is to locally save the model to be simulated and add my movements, manikins, tools and whatever I need to represent the manufacturing operations.
Lately, the new products to be simulated are designed in 3DExperience so the normal evolution should be doing the simulations collaboratively within 3DExperience platform. The products designed are "Read-only access" so I cannot modify them. Instead of creating my copy of the complete product, is there any faster way within 3DExperience of creating some kind of twin for moving/hidding some part of the product, inserting manikins, tools, etc. and saving it for later modifications?
For the moment, the faster way I found is exporting the model to CATIAV5 and simulating in DELMIAV5.
