Solving the Geometry Problem: Simulation-Driven Design

Over the years, computer-aided design (CAD) system geometry has evolved…from wireframes to surfaces to solids, and parametric to direct. Simulation, however, remains stuck using the same old beam, shell or simplified-solids paradigm invented more than 50 years ago. As CAD … Read More
