Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company,
world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product
Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that ORACLE
TEAM USA, winner of the 33rd America’s Cup in 2010 and 34th
America’s Cup defender in September 2013, used its 3DEXPERIENCE platform
to bring the team’s AC72 racing catamaran from concept to reality.
Dassault Systèmes’ innovative 3D software applications boosted ORACLE
TEAM USA’s collaboration throughout the development process, enabling
designers to quickly and easily make changes to the 72-foot racing yacht
in order to optimize and perfect its performance. In addition, Dassault
Systèmes’ 3D modeling application enabled ORACLE TEAM USA to render the
entire catamaran and review it as a whole rather than piece-by-piece.
“After the AC72’s capsize last month, we’ve seen how crucial it is that
every member of our team be involved in reviewing and adjusting the
AC72’s design, sharing their expertise and direct experience to help the
catamaran perform better. This boat’s design is essential to our
successful defense of the America’s Cup and it came through remarkably
well,” said Christoph Erbelding, Structural Design – Senior FEA Analyst,
ORACLE TEAM USA. “To enable that collaborative process we need a strong,
reliable solution that allows the entire team – including sailors and
designers – to show the full model in meetings, zoom in to highlight
certain parts, simulate how they would work, give feedback and make
changes in real-time. Dassault Systèmes gives us those capabilities and
we rarely have meetings without its tools on screen. As a result, we cut
our drafting time by almost 50 percent.”
Settling upon the industry’s only integrated composites design,
simulation and manufacturing solution, ORACLE TEAM USA chose Dassault
Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform applications to design and simulate the
boat’s composites layups, which are critical to optimizing its
strength/weight ratio. Every ounce counts when designing a racing
vessel. From riggings to sails, hundreds of individual parts have to
work together properly so that the boat remains fast and light.
Composite materials are increasingly utilized by many industries due to
their beneficial properties and the ability to tailor their response as
3D virtual design also allowed ORACLE TEAM USA to virtually test every
aspect of the AC72’s design before committing real-world resources to
building it. This ensures that better decisions are made and that the
development process and associated feedback cycles are fast and
efficient – and can influence design earlier in the development cycle.
3D models and simulation help the boat’s crew quickly and easily review
designs in a realistic virtual environment, allowing them to see if
there are items that need to be moved or reworked, or if sightlines need
to be adjusted. All this is done before the boat hits the water. Using
digital manikins to simulate how team members would interact while they
manned the boat also saves time that can be used to further refine the
“The move from a four-year America’s Cup cycle to a three-year cycle put
a great deal of pressure on ORACLE TEAM USA – pressure to design the
racing catamaran quickly, efficiently and accurately,” said Monica
Menghini, Executive Vice President, Industry and Marketing, Dassault
Systèmes. “With this added pressure and compact schedule, ORACLE TEAM
USA needed our 3DEXPERIENCE platform to establish global unified
collaboration, shorten the design and development phase and simulate key
occurrences in a virtual world. These types of marine and offshore
industry experiences, delivered to leaders such as ORACLE TEAM USA,
illustrate Dassault Systèmes’ continuing commitment to the marine and

About ORACLE TEAM USA
When ORACLE TEAM USA won the 33rd America’s Cup in February
2010, not only did team owner Larry Ellison succeed in his goal of
bringing the America’s Cup "home" to the United States, but his team
became the 34th America’s Cup Defender. Led by CEO Russell
Coutts and skipper Jimmy Spithill, ORACLE TEAM USA is comprised of the
best international sailing, design, build and support talent to defend
the trophy on San Francisco Bay in 2013. For more information, please
