PLM Europe is an annual conference, centered around Siemens PLM product line. Most of presenters are from Siemens PLM, showing the new features of the software and further development areas. There are also software partners and customers, showcasing the add-ons and examples of software use. Here I would share the things I found interesting and will give some comments regarding presented features. My overview covers mostly NX CAD. Smart innovation At the beginning, the tendencies in innovative technologies were presented, and Siemens PLM portfolio was shown to support the needs of these technologies and of today’s devices. This was mainly related to three topics: Digitization of early stages of product development System-driven product development So-called “Digital twin”, which is mainly about production simulation in Technomatix One more …

Ideal PLM Technology Day Russia 2015, conference notes

Technology Day is an annual conference organized by the Siemens PLM partner ‘IDEAL PLM CIS’. Each year it gathers CAx and PLM experts from Russia and CIS. The conference had two main sections, one dedicated to NX and one to Teamcenter. Here I show what I have found interesting. Metrovagonmash The presentations were started with “Metrovagonmash”, a Russian designer and manufacturer of underground railway trains. First, the history of NX use was shown. The first models were developed in early nineties. At that time the 3D geometries were done in relatively low detail. Gradually, the level of detail was increasing, and project was run for transferring 2D drawings into 3D. Over 10k documents were processed resulting in around 11k unique 3D models of components. Currently, NX assemblies form …
