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

5 Ways to Optimize Your Design

Have you ever felt like your design was overweight or unnecessarily exceeded its structural requirements? This could mean you are using excessive material which can directly affects the overall cost. Or has your single part been patched up with structural … Read More
