This year has made a big change in the way you’ve been working – you’ve probably sent more emails from your kitchen table than from your regular office desk. You might have had your kids’ toys rolling around your feet and your pet taking part in your conference calls. We feel you.
Here at PLM Group, we’ve been hard at work maintaining the high level of support and partnership that you expect from us. We share the same goals – we just achieve them today with different methods of working. When you need our help, we want you to know that we are here for you.
It’s soon time for some well-deserved rest. But before we do, we would like to give you a special Christmas greeting from the entire PLM Group team. Wherever you are right now, we hope you’ll enjoy it.
We wish you a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2021!

Dear PLM Group Customer and Partner,
As we are getting ready to enjoy the holiday season and starting to give 2021 a few thoughts, I would like to summarize this year from our side and extend a heartfelt thank you.
2020 has been challenging for all of us. Together, we have worked hard to keep the wheels turning. Thank you for your continuing loyalty and faith in us.

Sharing ideas in a project team is important, but how do you check the status of an idea and how do you know if the idea will be converted to an R&D project?
In a community on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, it’s possible to add a post called “idea”. By submitting an “idea” in a project community, other members can comment, provide feedback and decide if the idea should be developed further. So, no need to dive into those email threads or chat windows – just keep the communication to one, single place.
Check out the video to learn more about the 3DEXPERIENCE platform!
What is 3DEXPERIENCE? We explain and show it, from an engineer to another.

Danish NGI A/S is a world leading manufacturer of a wide range of machine feet in stainless steel and reinforced polyamide, for adjustment, stabilization and vibration absorption of all types of machines and equipment. Their product selection is massive – 15,000 pieces – and creating drawings for these products only takes seconds, as the process is automated. Engineers have more time for product development, and customers find what they want on their website without the help of NGI’s engineers. It’s a win-win situation.
NGI A/S is using DriveWorks which is a software for Design Automation.
