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.

Design for Manufacturability: What does Cadence Allegro offer?

Design for Board Manufacturability Issues:  What’s the deal here? Why is it an issue? Well, you want to check for manufacturability before you start to make anything. Usually, it happens pretty late in the design development process. There’s a big emphasis on shifting the manufacturability check earlier in the design development process to fix issues …

nTopology And Implicit Modeling: Why Is It Important?

New manufacturing frontiers such as additive manufacturing create new challenges for traditional 3D explicit modeling. In this video, Chad Jackson discusses some of the challenges and how nTopology’s implicit modeling tool solves them.

Altair 365: What Is It And Why Is It A Big Deal?

Although Altair’s transition towards cloud-based solutions is not all that unusual for the industry, there are some capabilities that have interesting implications. In this video, Chad Jackson provides a high level overview of some of the capabilities and implications.

What Are The Three Megatrends Changing Product Development Solutions Today?

There are three megatrends changing product development solutions today: “platformification”, movement to the cloud, and artificial intelligence/machine learning. In this video, Chad Jackson describes each megatrend and shares examples of how each is being implemented in the industry today.

Onscale: What is Simulation-as-a-Service?

What are the benefits of OnScale’s Simulation-as-a-Service solution? In this video, Chad Jackson discusses its capabilities and how its’ unique licensing/pricing model enables innovation.

PTC’s Acquisition of Onshape: Implications for Vuforia

The acquisition implications might not be immediately obvious since Vuforia is already connected to the cloud and ThingWorx. However, being able to run Vuforia alongside Creo and Integrity would create some interesting capabilities. In this video, the last of a five part series, Chad Jackson discusses some of the potential with PTC’s acquisition of Onshape.

PTC’s Acquisition of Onshape: Implications for ThingWorx

Are there implications from PTC’s acquisition of Onshape for ThingWorx? Since ThingWorx is already a cloud-based IoT platform, it might not be directly affected. However, in this video, Chad Jackson shares where there are implications with PTC’s other apps running alongside ThingWorx in the cloud.

Microsoft Azure: How Does It Play Into Applications Like IoT and Simulation?

There’s no question that product development software such as PLM and CAD is increasingly becoming cloud-based. However, when developing and using these applications, there are quite a few questions that need to be answered. In this video, Chad Jackson discusses the key questions and how Microsoft Azure answers them.
