3D Product Architect

The 3D Product Architect Role enables designers to navigate and author multi-CAD product structures with a shared experience between structure and 3D visualization.

The ENOVIA 3DEXPERIENCE 3D Product Architect (PAU-OC) Role provides the ability to explore and author multi-CAD product structures. Navigation and authoring is made available through a shared experience between a structure widget and a 3D visualization widget.

Engineering teams prepare initial product architectures by authoring multi-CAD structures; replacing and updating engineering items and positioning them in 3D for further detailed design in CAD systems.

3D Product Architect allows architects to apply the effectivity of engineering items to finalize a configured product structure.

3D Product Architect Benefits

  • Create Digital Mockups: Save valuable engineering time and improve communication across the product development chain with the ability to universally access and mock up products in the cloud. More efficiently review product structures, mock up changes and reuse structures from existing products to create new structures. Maintain full control over lifecycle functions such as release and revise.
  • Explore Product Structures: See what is happening when the structure is being changed to better understand the impact of the change. Explore product features with Measure, Section and related object capabilities.
  • Collaborate on any device: Share your designs within your business ecosystem from any device, at any time.
  • Extend Existing Designs: Easily create variations of existing designs and assign design context to each configured product. This provides a way to flexibly extend existing designs and more rapidly deliver products tailored to customer needs.
  • Visualize online: Visualize 3D components instantly from any web-enabled device. Navigate tabular and 3D design data simultaneously and easily validate the differences between two product structures.
  • Mock up from Multiple CAD Solutions: With a single context from multiple design sources, you can see products in their entirety and mock them up to better understand the impact of changes. Access design composition to help product architects understand the design mix.
