Dassault Systèmes 3DVIA Integrates KineoWorks™ from Kineo CAM to Revolutionize Product Documentation and Experience

Paris, France – November 30th, 2009 – Dassault Systèmes (DS) (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), a world leader in 3D and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that the leading technology for automatic motion and path planning from Kineo Computer Aided Motion (Kineo CAM), an independent software developer, has been integrated with 3DVIA Composer. This integration, named 3DVIA Path Planning, allows users to effectively communicate the most complicated steps of interactive documentation with automatically generated, lifelike animations, rather than photos and text.

Assembly and maintenance tasks of tightly fitting components have always been difficult to describe, regardless of the communication tool used. These processes are complex to explain using traditional photo and text instructions, often leading to misinterpretation, reduced quality, or damage to sensitive components. A potential solution to this challenge is to provide users with 3D interactive and animated instructions, which are more effective in communicating difficult concepts. For example, an assembly worker with a 3D animated instruction for the difficult removal of a component is better equipped to successfully remove the part than a colleague that has been provided instructions with images and text. Creating these 3D animations, unfortunately, has traditionally been difficult and time consuming.

The combination of 3DVIA Composer and 3DVIA Path Planning now automates the creation process to deliver top-in-class lifelike experiences that improve comprehension and error-free execution by end users.
“We are very pleased that our software technology has been integrated within 3DVIA Composer, making it easier for users to access the power of our collision detection engine,” said Laurent Maniscalco, CEO Kineo CAM. “With 3DVIA Path Planning, content creators can automatically generate non-colliding animated paths between desired components, helping to quickly plan and illustrate complex processes.”

3DVIA Composer revolutionizes the product documentation process for enterprises of all sizes. With its easy-to-use, desktop content-creation system, 3DVIA Composer quickly automates the creation of assembly and disassembly procedures, technical illustrations, interactive 3D product experiences, training materials, marketing materials, sales tools and more.

“With shrinking budgets and increasing pressures to bring products to market quickly, companies are unable to spend as much time creating technical documentation as they would like,” said Garth Coleman, director product marketing, 3DVIA, Dassault Systèmes. “Kineo CAM offers incredible capabilities that benefit our users in industries that are tasked with providing improved and more comprehensive instructions on shrinking budgets and delivery times. By combining the ability to create complex animations using 3DVIA Path Planning with the superior interactive capabilities of 3DVIA Composer, companies can easily create lifelike 3D experiences to improve comprehension of complex technical procedures.”

3DVIA Composer and 3DVIA Path Planning are currently available. For more information, please visit: www.3dviacomposer.com/pathplanning.
