Campus community invited to ‘Engaging with 3DEXPERIENCE’

Wichita State University and Dassault Systèmes will present “Engaging with 3DEXPERIENCE: Expanding beyond 3D modeling and design and manufacturing simulations” on Thursday, April 11.

This session offers an engaging introduction to various facets of product development within an environment supporting product virtual twin technology, utilizing the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. It delves into how core skills of engineering may be built by extending 3D modeling, integrating design simulations, manufacturing programming and planning, and product architecture and multidisciplinary development, all within a unified data environment that can used to foster collaboration and combine competencies. The aim is to showcase emerging technological trends in the product development domain and illustrate how they can align with engineering training. This 90-minute presentation is open to professors, researchers, students, and industry professionals. Join us to explore how these cutting-edge technologies are shaping the future of product development.

A welcome reception begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Harvest Room (room 142) of the RSC. The seminar and a presentation by Dassault Systèmes’ Florent Salako will follow from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

Florent Salako, Dassault Systèmes’ (3DS) North American Lead Consultative Academic Advisor, collaborates with higher educational institutions to prepare the workforce of the future. 3DS, a global provider of 3D-based solutions for product development, manufacturing industries, construction and cities and life sciences, emphasizes sustainable innovation using Virtual Twins for workforce development. 3DS underscores the importance of developing skills that eliminate barriers from numerical silos and leverage collaboration with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform using products like CATIA, SOLIDWORKS, SIMULIA, DELMIA, and ENOVIA in degree-granting curricula and research. With more than 30 years in PLM, including seven at 3DS, Mr. Salako has diverse experiences in sectors like education, aerospace, and transportation and mobility. He previously served as a faculty member in engineering at École Polytechnique de Montréal and holds degrees in Mechanical Engineering and an MBA from HEC Montreal.
