In a previous post, we covered how the different elements of user security work together to control the proper access for the proper users in Autodesk PLM 360.
Technophiles the world over are buzzing about Microsoft’s announcement of the HoloLens product. This holographic augmented reality platform is bubbling with cool factor, but could have a significant impact on engineering and manufacturing software.
Human hearts, 3D printers, gold mines, and traffic management are not necessarily the things you would expect out of PLM software vendors, but these are all related to the evolving strategies of these companies.
It’s been a little over four years since Razorleaf first wrote about DraftSight in this post about DraftSight Beta. Surprisingly, many companies are not aware of this free (or nearly free) 2D CAD package from Dassault. Given the utility of this tool for so many engineering and manufacturing users, it’s worth a second look and […]
Most major PLM vendors have a 2D and 3D visualization strategy based on their own proprietary file format. However, Aras has introduced a standards-based visualization strategy based on PDF, making PLM content more open, accessible, and widely consumable. Aras’ approach has impacts beyond PLM users and could open up 3D usage to entirely new categories […]
A little over a year ago, Microsoft released its Office 2013 suite, and rolled out its Office 365 subscription service. Many users are still unsure of which option would be best suited for their needs and budget.
The clock is ticking now that Dassault Systemes has announced that it will no longer support the IBM License Use Manager (LUM) technology for its product licensing needs after December 31, 2013.

The Aras Innovator workflow engine has many options and features that enable the modeling of robust business processes in PLM. One of the options available is the capability to authenticate users before they can complete an activity. You may be asking, why would I want to authenticate a user in a workflow? Or, isn’t supplying […]
If you’re a 3D CAD user, you no doubt recognize the name PTC, or at the very least, Pro/ENGINEER. But with the recent announcement by PTC of their new product line, Creo, the Pro/E brand’s days have become numbered. Creo is a new line of products based on technology from PTC’s three main design and […]
Regardless of whether you’re interested in EPDM Item BOMs or EPDM Document BOMs, it is important to know what you can and cannot do with Computed BOMs. Computed BOMs are the ones most closely tied to the source data in Enterprise PDM, but that doesn’t mean that they cannot be manipulated. So what is a […]
