Catia and Boeing 787


The Boeing Company used CATIA V3 to develop its 777 airliner, and is currently using CATIA V5 for the 787 series aircraft. They have employed the full range of Dassault Systemes' 3D PLM products — CATIA, DELMIA, and ENOVIA LCA — supplemented by Boeing developed applications.[8]

European aerospace giant Airbus has been using CATIA since 2001.[9]

Canadian aircraft maker Bombardier Aerospace has done all of its designing on CATIA.[10]

The 777 was the first commercial aircraft to be designed entirely on computer.[24][17] Each design drawing was created on a three-dimensional CAD software system known as CATIA, sourced from Dassault Systemes and IBM.[30] This allowed a virtual aircraft to be assembled, in simulation, to check for interferences and to verify proper fit of the many thousands of parts, thus reducing costly rework.[31] Boeing was initially not convinced of the program's abilities and built a physical mock-up of the nose section to verify the results. The test was so successful that additional mock-ups were cancelled.[32]

“Dassault Systèmes provides the core of our PLM systems suite. The design of parts, plans, tools, and processes across the supply chain is changing the way we design, build, deliver and support our products. PLM makes all of that possible.

Scott Griffin, CIO

NEPTUNE Canada going alive 8 December

I am really looking forward to see what kind of sea creatures this Canadian project will bring.
Nature inspire a lot of the designs that is around us.

NEPTUNE Canada offers a unique and exciting approach to ocean science. Traditionally, ocean scientists have relied on infrequent ship cruises or space-based satellites to carry out their research. But NEPTUNE Canada will change this. We’re building the world’s first regional-scale underwater ocean observatory that plugs directly into the Internet. People everywhere will be able to ‘surf the seafloor,’ and ocean scientists will be able to run deep-water experiments from labs and universities anywhere around the world.

To learn more, see our video introduction to NEPTUNE Canada and VENUS.

Join our community of scientists, students, policy makers and ocean enthusiasts, as we reinvent ocean science for the 21st century!

We're going live: 8 Dec 09

george c van der walt

Here is my first attempt on a Ambigram. On Friday I showed you how it works and told you I have not made one myself. Well check it out and tell me what you think.

Thanks to John Langdon
for his advise.

Above Anbigrams FROM:John Langdon Check this out for more abigrams.

An ambigram is a typographical design or artform that may be read as one or more words not only in its form as presented, but also from another viewpoint, direction, or orientation. The words readable in the other viewpoint, direction or orientation may be the same or different from the original words. Douglas Hofstadter describes an ambigram as a "calligraphic design that manages to squeeze two different readings into the selfsame set of curves." Different ambigramists may create completely different ambigrams from the same word or words, differing in both style and form.

Ikea Facebook storefront

AddThis Social Bookmark ButtonThat’s why IKEA’s recent Facebook campaign is so awesome. The Swedish furniture company opened a new store in Malmo, Sweden and rather than spread the word the old-fashioned way, they decided to go directly to the people using Facebook.

An account was created for the store manager at the Malmo store. Over a two-week period, showroom images were uploaded to his Facebook photo album. Using the all-popular “tagging” feature, customers were able to locate items in the pictures and put their name on it. The first person to tag an object got to take it home.

The word spread through Facebook (Facebook) and users started embedding links and images in their own profiles and across news feeds. In turn, thousands and thousands of users willingly promoted IKEA and its new store to others, creating a big win for IKEA.

Landmine Ketchup

AddThis Social Bookmark Button

"Using a ketchup sachet, we demonstrated the horrific nature of living in a land mine affected country and how much a part of everyday life that horror is. The idea is simple: as you tear open the sachet you also rip through the child's leg and the ketchup inside pours out like blood."

New York loves its trademark

New York loves its trademark

New York officials show no mercy in their bid to protect the “I ♥ New York” logo. The trademark, supplied free of charge by graphic designer Milton Glaser in 1976, helps beckon 140 million tourists to the Empire State each year. As others tried to tap the design over the years, state legal eagles have filed close to 3,000 trademark objections.
