Dassault this week launched a Web site for education called DS Campus. The purpose is to promote its line of software to educators, students, and employees. It strongly copies the Autodesk student portal by offering teaching aids, forums, contests, and information about selected software: CATIA, DELMIA, SIMULIA Abaqus, SolidWorks Education Edition, and 3DVIA Virtools. Primary difference: Autodesk allows students and faculty to downloaded selected software offerings with a free, 14-month license; Dassault does not. Underlining Confusion One item that's hyper confusing on the Dassault site is that some sentances are underlinned. But they aren't links; just underlined text, such as the following:
CATIA V5 for K-12: "DISCOVER" DISCOVER blends the essential principles of virtual engineering with components commonly used in the field of mechanical design – form, analysis and numerical control – offering teachers and students a unique tool to take their ideas to the next level of development in 3D.
Clicking on underlined text for more info leads to nothing.
