3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress

October 15-18, 2018  >>  Golden, Colorado  >>  REGISTER NOW

3D CIC

The 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress focuses on CAD collaboration and interoperability for the entire product lifecycle. More than ever before, information needs to be digital and fully associated as Model-Based Definition, Model-Based Enterprise, Smart Manufacturing, and Internet of Things continue to evolve. For discrete manufacturing, this means CAD interoperability and collaboration to enable the digital thread.

“This is one of the best conferences I’ve attended over the past 20 years. The software agnostic nature of the presentations and the cross section of companies led to great discussions.”

3D CIC returns to the American Mountaineering Center in Golden, Colorado for the 2018 event, with the theme of Enterprise Accountability

What does Enterprise Accountability mean for 3D collaboration and interoperability for the product lifecycle?
Products are built by designing, manufacturing, and maintaining quality at each step of content generation. Adequacy of information across the enterprise can be checked by software and humans. Software tools automate and resolve execution deficiencies while revealing errors that require human attention. New procedures written to take advantage of a digital transformation inside Industry 4.0 require persistent consistence to influence organizational culture that naturally resists change. Speakers at this year’s 3D CIC event will move this conversation forward.
 
User groups focused on Model-Based Definition are returning for 2018!
 

5/10/18 Update: The MBD user group offerings will include NX, PTC/USER, SOLIDWORKS, and Publishing Options. A “How to Build Buy-in with Your Executives” session will feature a panel of industry implementers.

6/25/18 Update: The Inventor MBD user group will not be held in 2018. We hope to offer it in 2019.

Action Engineering produces the 3D Collaboration & Interoperability Congress with the support of 3D CIC’s founder and long-time lead, David Prawel of Longview Advisors. Action Engineering is grateful for Mr. Prawel’s continued support of 3D CIC.
