solidThinking Inspire 2014: Refining Simulation Driven Design

Just barely over a year ago, I wrote a post titled The Implications of solidThinking Inspire, introducing the idea of marrying topology optimization with Direct Modeling functionality. A few weeks ago, they released a new version of the product with numerous enhancements. This post looks closer at that release and what it means for engineering

The Surprise in ANSYS’ Acquisition of Spaceclaim?

Back and the beginning of May, when ANSYS announced their intent to acquire Spaceclaim, pundits and analysts responded with a range of reactions. Some cheered, saying such a combination of geometry manipulation and depth of simulation technology was a breakthrough. Others groaned, saying Spaceclaim’s impact on true design would be undercut. And while I posted

Simulation Needs Parametric and Direct Modeling

In recent years, much has been made about the relevance of direct modeling on simulation activities. Somewhere along the way, many have forgotten how parametric modeling is just as important. In this post, we’ll take a look at why simulation activities need to be enabled by both.
