The Challenge

KaVo needed an automated solution for producing 3D interactive work instructions and product illustrations to provide the level of detail required for accurate product assembly and technical documentation to reduce the time to market.

Dassault Systèmes Response

KaVo implemented Dassault Systèmes’ 3DVIA Composer and integrated the solution with its product development and engineering change processes with ENOVIA to automatically generate assembly and technical illustrations from CATIA 3D models at product release.


KaVo is already realizing a 50 percent time reduction in the generation of technical documentation and expects to reduce errors and improve quality during product assembly.
