TechViz announces a CAA Development Partnership with Dassault Systèmes

Paris, France-(September 16, 2010)-TechViz is pleased to announce a CAA Development Partnership with Dassault Systèmes.

Dassault Systemes

Through this Software Partnership, TechViz will create, market and sell new functionalities of its TechViz XL software dedicated to Dassault Systèmes’ PLM solutions. These functionalities will be fully integrated and complementary to Dassault Systèmes’ solutions. This will allow users of CATIA, DELMIA and ENOVIA to switch to another level of experience when using their Dassault Systèmes’ solutions with TechViz XL. It will increase the ease of use and multiply the application fields of the PLM software.

CATIA is Dassault Systèmes’ Pioneer Brand and the world’s leading solution for Product Design and Innovation. DELMIA Digital Manufacturing Solutions allow manufacturers in any industry to virtually define, plan, create, monitor and control all production processes. From early process planning and assembly simulation to a complete definition of the production facility and equipment, DELMIA assists companies to achieve maximum production efficiency, lower costs, improve quality and reduce time to market. ENOVIA is the only PLM solution that delivers a production proven SOA architecture for driving collaborative innovation. ENOVIA links enterprise and multi-discipline engineering users, enabling everyone to work within « a single version of the truth ». The ENOVIA portfolio offers industry solutions for the enterprise and small to mid-market.

TechViz XL allows users of CATIA, ENOVIA DMU and DELMIA to work natively with their models as Virtual Prototypes. Virtual prototyping gives engineering, manufacturing and conceptual design departments the ability to virtually explore a complete product before it is actually produced. Using it allows companies to bring more innovative products to market, to reduce the time to market and costs. TechViz XL allows users to display large 3D data sets directly in the native application with a high frame rate, on any type of stereo 3D display, make changes in real time and display in 1:1 scale or greater without any data conversion or data loss.

« The new Software Partnership between Dassault Systèmes and TechViz will allow extending the level of integration of TechViz functionalities into the CATIA, ENOVIA DMU or DELMIA software and thus making the use of Dassault Systèmes’ solutions even more fluid and user-friendly. » said Christophe Theillaud, Alliances Leader. « We are delighted to welcome TechViz into Dassault Systèmes’ Software Partner Community. »
« We have been supporting CATIA for years and we are pleased to be now part of the Dassault Systèmes’ Software Partner Community, to provide even more added value to our customers with the joint power of TechViz and Dassault Systèmes’ solutions » said Alberto Gabaï, General Manager of TechViz.
