Dear 3DExperience Community,

In this new article, you will learn more about ENOVIA 3DExperience. Like CATIA or SIMULIA, ENOVIA is a Brand of Dassault Systèmes. All the orange application are labelled ENOVIA and are meant for Product Lifecycle Management purpose (versioning, collaboration, reviewing, filtering, etc.)


Being another Brand than CATIA (for Design) or SIMULIA (for Simulation) do not exclude them for being compatible together. Indeed, in that case we will focus on Filtering capabilities on a Product. You will filter an assembly made in CATIA, using Filtering feature in ENOVIA Product Finder.

Here is the scenario of the tutorial. Watch the Video at the end and find the model on the GrabCad link:

Step 1: Explore an Assembly

** before starting tutorial, make sure that option “Activate the New Navigation Experience” is ticked in the preferences panel (Social and Collaborative / Global Design Management / Product Finder / Explore ) **

Search for and assembly (containing several parts) in the database. Instead of opening it EXPLORE it ** Be sure to be in Product Finder Application **

ENOVIA Product Finder

Step 2: Filter an Assembly
Click on Filter

Select the different part you would like to KEEP in the Filter

Click on Apply and OK

Save the Filter and give it a name

Close the exploring mode

Step 3: Filter in Drawing
Search again for the assembly in database and OPEN it

Insert a drawing in the root product

Switch to Drafting

Insert a new front view

Select the Filter option on right top of the screen.

The filter you created will be retrieved

Apply the filter

The filtered view will be generated in the drawing

Step 4: Edit the filter (optional)
Close the assembly and EXPLORE it ** be sure to be in Product Finder application **

Click on Retrieve Filter

Select the filter you recently created

Edit the filter by adding or removing parts

Click on apply and OK

Save the filter

Close the exploring mode

Open the assembly again

Open the drawing

Click on Me / >Preferences / Object filters

Update the filters (wait until the filter will be updated)

Update the drawing

Now the view is updated

Watch and Learn 🙂

This time the video is about ENOVIA on 3DX R19x on Cloud. The purpose of this video is to show you how you can apply a filter to an assembly.

After filtering, you can make a drawing based on the filter.
This functionality is available on ENOVIA Product Finder application.
