Simulation-driven design: Is it right for your size company?

Designing the next generation of smart, connected products is no easy task. Company owners are asking engineers at small to mid-sized companies to work against ever-shortening schedules. Requirements are more stringent and sometimes conflicting. Budgets are tight, with little to no flexibility. There are many technology-led initiatives to help engineers succeed, and none are more achievable than simulation-driven product design.

Manufacturing Blog: Generative Design and Engineering Jobs

Good design is difficult. And with demands for more complex products, shorter schedules, and lower costs, it is only going to get harder.

These demands leave engineers with little or no opportunity for innovation. Fortunately, though, new and novel engineering tools could help you address these challenges. In this blog post, we’ll explore one of them: Generative design, artificial intelligence-based engineering software that has already begun to accelerate and disrupt the traditional design processes.

ZWSOFT: What Do They Offer, What Applications Do They Provide and What Do They Do?

ZWSOFT is a Chinese-owned company that offers five applications worldwide. In this post, we will go through them one by one. First is ZWCAD, which has 2D functionality for sketching, drawing, manipulating those things. It is a straightforward but capable solution meant to be an alternative or replacement for Autodesk’s AutoCAD offering. Second is ZW3D, …

How to Improve Designs by Compressing Simulation Analysis

Several developments have occurred during the last few years that have overhauled the traditional simulation analysis approach — changing it for the better. These advancements have replaced the discrete steps of traditional analysis with a near-real-time process in which the boundaries between steps are blurred.

Mixed Reality Moves Beyond the Cool Factor

As the hype around augmented reality(AR) and virtual reality(VR), begins to wear off, companies are starting to look at how these technologies add real value.
