3D Printing: Why is it Appealing to Engineering?

Additive manufacturing, also known as 3D printing, is an exciting new development on many fronts. It is particularly appealing to engineers designing products. Why? Chad Jackson shares some insight in this video.

One of the Biggest Challenges in Generative Design

Everyone is abuzz about generative design. However, they are overlooking some significant cultural challenges in adopting it. In this video, Chad Jackson gives an overview of some of those barriers to adopting this exciting new technology.

The Big Challenge With Simulation Driven Design

A Simulation Driven Design initiative carries a lot of promise. Yet, there are some kinks that companies need to address before they can reasonably realize value. We review some of the biggest ones in this post.

Disambiguating the Digital Twin

There’s lots of confusion around the Digital Twin. In this post and video, provide an overview of the three definitions used in the industry and highlight the one we use.

Collaboration on Board Systems Design: Is It An Opportunity?

Is there an opportunity for more electrical-mechanical collaboration within board systems design? Let’s make sure we’re on the same page before we go any further. First off, what’s involved? We’re talking about taking the board layout in ECAD and communicating that to the 3D assembly in the mechanical application. Why is that needed, and what’s

What is Generative Design?

There are a lot of different definitions for Generative Design today. In this post, we provide some clarity on three of those definitions and share the one that we use.
