Dassault Systems is a subsidiary of the Dassault Group was incorporated in 1981 but in fact started in 1977 with 15 engineers from Avions Marcel Dassault – led by Francis Bernard to develop a new generation of computer-aided design (CAD) software called CATIA. This new European headquarters, located in the south-western suburbs of Paris, is commonly called 3DS Paris Campus.
Dassault Systems develops and markets PLM software and services that support industrial processes by providing a 3D vision of the entire lifecycle of products from conception to maintenance. Dassault Systems customers are companies in the following industries: Aerospace & Defense, Architecture, Engineering and Construction, Consumer goods – distribution, FMCG – Distribution, Energy, and processes, Finance and Corporate Services, High Technology, Industrial Equipment, Life Sciences, Marine & Offshore, Natural Resources, and Transport & mobility.
Over the years, Dassault Systems improved its software and expanded to the US, Japan and Germany. This rapid growth triggered a chain of products, acquisitions, and partnerships beyond the company’s core 3D CAD/CAM software and led to what is known today as Dassault Systems.
By the end of the 20th century, CAD/CAM had become too restrictive to be identified with Dassault Systems products. Then, in the early 2000s, it was replaced by PLM, the acronym for Product Lifecycle Management. New brand names were added to address the full PLM spectrum: DELMIA to support manufacturing, ENOVIA to support internal and external collaboration, SIMULIA for Analysis and Simulation, SolidWorks for 3D modeling and 3DVIA for 3D visualization.
In 2007, along with the creation of the new brand 3DVIA, Dassault Systems started to get into online applications. The company used the advantages of the Internet and introduced online PLM with its Version 6 platform.
Parametric Technology India Private (PTC) a fully owned subsidiary as one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing technology companies PTC Inc. PTC is one of the world’s largest and fastest-growing technology companies. PTC helps manufacturing leaders address the transformative forces to achieve and sustain product and service advantage.
PTC can really help customers transform how they would create things, how they would connect those things to the cloud, how they would analyze the data coming from those things. Included in that is our new ColdLight Acquisition. Altogether, PTC can help customers transform the way they create, connect, analyze, operate, and service smart connected products, smart operations, and smart systems.
PTC has this tremendous set of technology platforms. They can be used in applications like ours, and it can be used for many different purposes. We see ourselves as having a horizontal and very broad technology platforms business, made up of our IOT suite for developing and running and integrating Internet of Things applications. That would be ThingWorx and the new ThingWorx Converge offering which is focused on the integration of systems with IOT. PTC’s ColdLight acquisition provides big-data, automated and predictive analytics part. In addition, PTC is creating new technologies such as augmented reality and digital twin using our expertise of 3D, PLM, configuration management and digital mockup.
MasterCam– CNC Software: Founded in MA in 1983, CNC Software, Inc. is one of the oldest developers of PC-based computer-aided design / computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) software. They are one of the first to introduce CAD/CAM software designed for both machinists and engineers. Mastercam, CNC Software’s main product, started as a 2D CAM system with CAD tools that let machinists design virtual parts on a computer screen and guided computer numerical controlled (CNC) machine tools in the manufacture of parts. Since then, Mastercam has grown into the most widely used CAD/CAM package in the world. CNC Software, Inc. is now located in Tolland, Connecticut.
Mastercam’s comprehensive set of predefined toolpaths—including contour, drill, pocketing, face, peel mill, engraving, surface high speed, advanced multiaxis, and many more—enable machinists to cut parts efficiently and accurately. Mastercam users can create and cut parts using one of many supplied machine and control definitions, or they can use Mastercam’s advanced tools to create their own customized definitions.
Mastercam also offers a level of flexibility that allows the integration of 3rd party applications, called C-hooks, to address unique machine or process specific scenarios.
