Volume Computation Specialist

The Volume Computation Specialist Role eases collaboration around geometric representations, by creating simplified alternate representations of surrounding components or assemblies.

The ENOVIA 3DEXPERIENCE Volume Computation Specialist (VOO-OC) Role creates accurate reduced representations of parts or assemblies by keeping their external representation only. Users can generate simplified representations of parts, ensuring confidentiality when communicating with suppliers. Further design is facilitated by performing space reservation through a swept or vibrating volume, which can also be used for clash detection. All generated representations can be managed easily by saving and reusing them for productive digital review and analysis.

Volume Computation Specialist enables the user to handle digital mock-ups of all sizes in industries as various as consumer goods, automotive, aerospace, energy, shipbuilding, or heavy machinery. It enables greater productivity for digital review and analysis with a comprehensive set of commands and unique set of functions to optimize the size and number of representations that can be manipulated at any stage of the review.

Volume Computation Specialist Benefits

  • Enhance loading and 3D navigation performance by creating a lighter representation of complex assemblies.
  • Simplify the data used by downstream processes by including only the required details of design with user-defined level of accuracy for simplified meshes.
  • Protect design IP during secured exchanges of design with suppliers with the help of simplified external representation of parts called ‘Wrappings.’
  • Secure a space for moving parts to avoid interferences between moving or vibrating components with the ability to accurately capture swept volumes.
  • Provide the right level of information for the whole ecosystem by managing alternate representations for space reservation or digital reviews.

Volume Computation Specialist Highlights

  • Generate lighter representations of parts/assemblies by simplifying meshes to a user-selectable level of accuracy.
  • Generate simplified external representations of parts/assemblies, ensuring confidentiality protection when communicating with suppliers.
  • Perform space reservation by generating a thickness for a surface or a security volume around a part.
  • Create a light context by keeping only shapes that you can see from a set of viewpoints.
  • Perform space reservation by generating the swept volume of a moving part or vibration volume of a vibrating part.
  • Optimize digital mockup management through the application of Volume Computation commands to meet the user’s specific needs.
