Three Trends Reshaping Mechanical Design

We’re on the verge of a state change in mechanical design. There are emerging technologies that are going to make a huge impact and open up a lot of new possibilities in terms of design.

The big lever that mechanical engineers have been pulling today to control their designs for components has been macro geometry. The primary mechanism for mechanical engineers to fulfill requirements, hit performance targets and fulfill costs have been geometric shape. That’s been limiting.

What is Shapr3D?

Let’s talk about Shapr3D. So first off, what is it? It is a 3D modeling tool for mechanical design. It’s actually a fair bit different from your traditional offerings. It is mobile first.  What does that mean? Today, it runs on an iPad Pro and you actually use an Apple pen with it and multi-touch …

How Do You Realize Value from Simulation-Driven Design?

Four strategies that your company can take to realize the value out of simulation-driven design. In this post, we cover the advantages and disadvantages of each strategy.

AI and Digital Twins for Smart Manufacturing

How can you use digital twins and artificial intelligence to help with the development of production systems that you see in plants and facilities? Obviously, there is a big movement with smart manufacturing to stream data from equipment on the shop floor; trying to improve product quality, trying to improve throughput, and trying to shorten the time to commission production systems. We’ll talk about how all that intersects.

The Integrated Systems Development Report

Lifecycle Insights’ Systems Development Benchmark Study shows many companies are struggling to keep up with consumers’ demands for digitally enabled products. At the same time, our findings show the most progressive companies report strong organizational performance gains. These progressive companies share several common attributes. These include the early use of simulation — both mechanics and electronics — and model-based systems engineering. This report shares study findings to guide manufacturers navigating similar changes.

Mechanical Design and Electrical Design on Autodesk Fusion Platform

Autodesk acquired an ECAD solution that they’ve been integrating into their Fusion Platform. In this post, Chad Jackson discusses the implications and advantages of having both the electrical and mechanical design on a cloud-based platform.

THE PLM DEPLOYMENT HANDBOOK: PLANNING AND DRIVING DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION

Product Lifecycle Management is a crucial enabler for Digital Transformation initiatives. PLM powers the complete, digital definition of a product across engineering domains and functional departments. It drives and automates digital processes within and across companies. It is a fundamental building block to Digital Transformation. This report explains how to plan and deploy PLM in support of a Digital Transformation effort.

Altair SimSolid: What is it, What Does it Do and Why is It Different?

What is Altair SimSolid? Altair SimSolid is a structural analysis tool meant to be used in the design phase.  It helps engineers get insight into the performance of their designs so they can make better decisions. Now, we hear that a lot about a lot of different tools. So why is SimSolid different? Let’s dive …
