Users of PTC’s Pro/ENGINEER CAD tool looking for advanced thermal analysis and simulation capabilities will have a broader array of options thanks to a partnership between PTC and Blue Ridge Numerics.
Following PTC’ recent announcement of its latest CAD release, Wildfire 4.0, Blue Ridge Numerics announced a version of its CFdesign tool specifically tuned for the upgrade. This new edition of CFdesign for Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire 4.0, which provides a parametric CAD-driven flow and thermal analysis environment, also supports CoCreate OneSpace 3D, a CAD tool acquired by PTC last year.
Blue Ridge Numerics says it jumped on supporting Wildfire 4.0 because of the widespread adoption of CFdesign within the Pro/ENGINEER installed base. The software allows engineers to conduct trade-off studies and thermal analysis upfront in the decision-making process, well before detailed CAD models are created and any physical testing is employed.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
