Following my blogpost featuring Dymola libraries in action within CATIA V6, I decided to feature what I consider one of CATIA’s sexiest domains: Shape. I chatted with Pierre Maheut, one of our Shape specialists. He was of a great help to help me understand the technical parts of this video better.
The chosen video is: CATIA Packaging Design Demo Reel
This video is in fact a demo teaser for CATIA’s industrial design software, and the whole purpose is to show in 3 minutes the process a designer goes through in the designing packaging. The video covers the various steps the designers use to create, for example, a perfume bottle. Imagine, create, share and experience. The video also shows the importance of communities and crowed sourcing in the interactive creation process.
Pierre breaks down the video into four parts:
- Imagine: Integration of 2D Sketches in 3D environment
- Create: Easily and quickly materialize an idea into 3D.
- Share: Instant collaboration with Engineering
- Experience: Choice of colors & materials with high quality real time visualization.
To wrap up our chat, I asked Pierre to tell me what he likes about this video. He answered that he likes the fact that this video shows CATIA in another perspective. We are perhaps not yet well known in Consumer Packaged Goods, especially amongst industrial designers. Last but not least, he likes how CATIA is both powerful and a fun to use design tool.
That’s all folks!
