Material intelligence in Dassault Systemes software

Granta partners with Dassault Systemes to ensure materials support for CAE, CAD, and PLM users. The GRANTA MI software creates a single, approved source of corporate materials information and integrates it into product design, simulation, and development. Today, this includes support for Abaqus/CAE and CATIA. And Granta is currently integrating with the 3DEXPERIENCE platform.

Fast access to simulation data in Abaqus/CAE

MI:Materials Gateway for Abaqus/CAE enables instant access to approved materials data for simulation. Open the app within Abaqus/CAE. It connects automatically to your company’s GRANTA MI database. Search and browse materials, view datasheets, choose applicable material models, then import these models into Abaqus/CAE with full traceability.

Materials support for CATIA

MI:Materials Gateway for CATIA enables instant access to approved materials data from within CATIA. Find the right materials in your company database and assign them to your model, dramatically cutting time taken searching for information. Now you can be sure that a consistent density is used everywhere in the organization, enabling reliable weight roll-ups. Relevant data can be transferred automatically, along with the material assignment. This ensures, for example, that the right material specifications and IDs are written onto drawings.

Consistency across your engineering software platform

GRANTA MI ensures that a single source of materials data supports varied engineering software—whether from Dassault Systèmes or other vendors. Granta is working closely with Dassault Systèmes to support the 3DEXPERIENCE platform. Engineers and analysts get the materials data that they need, when and where they need it, while companies ensure that all users apply consistent data, based on the same material definition.
