They were no longer just composed of mechanical hardware: electronic hardware and embedded software were increasingly part of products. That idea, of course, carried some serious implications for product

PTC’s Integrity Modeler

If you’ve been following some of the latest on new tools that help engineer’s design and develop products, then you’ve seen system engineering come up again and again. Processes and standards have been around for some time for system engineering. However, it has only been in the last few years that we’re seeing a growing

Workbench: ANSYS’ Simulation Platform

Concept design. Detailed design. Verification and validation. Prototype and test. Today, simulation can be used in each of these areas to great benefit. However, that doesn’t mean you can simply create one simulation solution to cover all of them. There are distinctly separate roles that would apply simulation in each of those phases of development.

Creo Illustrate and Vuforia: A Easy Shortcut to 3D Service Instructions

A couple weeks ago, PTC held their user conference, LiveWorx, in Boston. While the IoT is interesting and compelling for a number of reasons, many manufacturers are still trying to figure out how such technological capabilities translate to business benefit. Going to the event, I was looking at how their vision for IoT would mesh with
