Come Visit the 3DEXPERIENCE Playground at Science in the Age of Experience


The following is a guest post by Sean McGee, Solution Marketing Manager, BIOVIA.

3DEXPERIENCE playground

The last twenty years have seen a massive influx of new, innovative technologies transforming the way we work, play and live. These innovations have reached into the sciences as well: every day advances in technology enable new approaches, techniques and methodologies. Yet as organizations embrace these advances, they must be conscious of how they can improve their overall R&D experience to truly leverage their potential. This year at Science in the Age of Experience you can explore new technologies with transformative capabilities in scientific R&D. The 3DEXPERIENCE Playground will house interactive exhibits ranging from virtual 3D models of a living human heart to projections of the quality of an oil field throughout production. Here are just some of the exciting offerings you can find at the exhibition:

Living Heart Experience – The Living Heart zSpace Experience provides viewers with the opportunity to explore and interact with the Living Heart Human Model in 3D. Coupled with a virtual-holographic platform, this Experience provides a glimpse into the future of medicine where cardiovascular experts can explore treatment options, educate their patients or study the efficacy of new medical devices and predict reliability under real-world conditions.

Additive Manufacturing zSpace Experience – The Additive Manufacturing zSpace Experience provides viewers an opportunity to explore and interact with the Additive Manufacturing process simulation in 3D. Coupled with a virtual-holographic platform, this Experience provides a glimpse into the future of Additive Manufacturing. Experts can visualize residual stress build-ups, part distortions and material variations to improve the quality of designs and design parts so they print right the first time.

Simpack Driving Simulator – Simpack is a multibody simulation software tool used to simulate mechanical systems. The Simpack software is able to analyze vibrational behavior, calculate forces and accelerations and describe and predict the motion of any complex multibody system. Simpack Realtime is an add-on module that enables the use of detailed models for a range of real-time applications, e.g. Hardware-in-the-Loop and Software-in-the-Loop. This model provides a practical example by reproducing the act and feel of driving a car.

Oil and Gas Subsurface zSpace Experience – The immersive Oil and Gas zSpace Experience, resulting from a successful collaboration between Baker Hughes and Dassault Systèmes SIMULIA, explores an Oil and Gas field in the North Sea region and predict the consequences of three years of production, especially compaction and subsidence in the reservoir.

The advent of experience in scientific R&D will have a transformative impact on the way science is carried out. The 3DEXPERIENCE Playground hosts interactive exhibits for the latest and greatest advances in scientific R&D tools. Don’t miss this opportunity to witness the future of scientific research and product development firsthand!
