Lesson Learned: Generative Design Does Apply to Machinery

Many don’t think Generative Design applies well to industrial equipment and heavy machinery. Well, a case study from Claudius Peters projects GmbH tells us a different story. This post recaps a customer presentation from Autodesk’s Accelerate event.

Mechanical Design Is Changing in Smart, Connected Products Era

Many companies are making the transition from developing mechanical oriented products to smart, connected ones. Making that change, of course, requires many changes. But what does it mean for mechanical design? We explore that topic in this post.

Building the Digital Thread for Harness Design

What is a Digital Thread when it comes to harness design? This post details that definition and why it is so important to the development of smart, connected products.

The Rising Demand for Routed Electrical Collaboration

The design of harnesses isn’t always the highest priority in the development of smart, connected products. Yet, errors in their design can have a longstanding detrimental effect. In this post, we look at designing them concurrently and collaboratively instead.
