On September 28 and 29 2017 were held Open days of the construction laboratory, better known as the CAD Lab, at the Department of Design and Product Development at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Naval Architecture in Zagreb. The open days were held for the purpose of presenting the cooperation of companies, Rimac Automobili and CADCAM Group with which the Laboratory for construction got ensured new academic licenses for 3DEXPERIENCE on Cloud platform to a period of 10 years. Licenses are for design and product development, which the lab acquires a new title: "3DEXPERIENCE CADLab powered by RIMAC and CADCAM Group".
Equipping CADLab with a comprehensive business platform that combines various brands and solutions of Dassault Systèmes, represented by the CADCAM Group, students of the FSB have been able to keep up with the development of technologies for product design and development. During the open day’s lectures and workshops were held and presenters had the opportunity to try out a new business platform with expert guidance. Also, the application of virtual reality technology has been demonstrated where you can step into the interior of the most complex assemblies on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform with the HTC Viva virtual reality device.
As part of the opening ceremony, it has been presented an example from a practice of multi-disciplinary engineering – robot Poppy. The robot was made by Italian students from the idea to the final product. The technology they have used is platform 3DEXPERIENCE and 3D printing technology. Students also had the opportunity to see the 3D scanner at work, the application of reverse engineering technology and 3D printing, as part of the 3DEXPERIENCE CADLab opening program.
The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables integration of processes and data into an information environment throughout the product lifecycle. Furthermore, you are able to define roles and authority of the user at the applications for 3D design, modeling, and simulation, as well as applications for the intelligent data management, ie. data search and systematization. The platform connects engineers, designers, managers, marketing, sales and other departments and locations to an integrated collaborative environment.
In a time when business complexity is growing, when experiences are most important and digitalization is taking place, companies are increasingly looking for a unique business platform that encompasses the entire product creation process. It is therefore important to enable students to have an opportunity to work with the functional tools that add value and simplify project tasks.

The FSB’s students have also prepared short videos during the Open Days of 3DEXPERIENCE CADLab.
