Stamping Die Design in CATIA

Best in class stamping die design tool Stamping Die design is complicated. Designers must juggle complex requirements such as draw direction, parting surface, folded features and progressive steps. Stamping simulation results must be incorporated. And lead times keep reducing CATIA Stamping Die Designer, increases productivity by guiding users from the conceptual planning through to detailed tooling design of complex stamped

How to get rid of 2D Drawings

The Problem Before computers, engineering designs where carried out by armies of draftsmen toiling over drawing boards in vast offices. Some may still express nostalgia for those days, but like all else, change came along. Today sophisticated computer programs allow engineering designs to be created in a full 3D virtual world with great degrees of precision. In the initial phases

Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) – Overview

Product and Manufacturing Information (PMI) consists of non-geometric data, that is attached directly to a 3D CAD model to define geometric dimensioning and tolerancing (GD&T), engineering and manufacturing specifications, dimensions, and text.  PMI is part of Model Based Definition (MBD) and together these two elements are a part of a Digital Twin. Applying PMI to a 3D model can reduce or
