If you’re familiar with Siemens PLM Software’s Synchronous Technology, you’ve heard a lot of talk about how it melds many of the ease-of-use and flexibility benefits of history-free modeling into what’s traditionally viewed as a history-based CAD product. But what about how Synchronous Technology, which is now at the heart of both NX and Solid Edge, can be deployed on history-based models? Siemens PLM Software has a video tutorial that shows how the technology comes into play to easily edit models with history.In the video example, an engineer needs to change an eight-year-old fully parametric part and its associated drawings. The task described has to do with modifying a pocket while trying to maintain the history tree–a task that apparently is not as easy as it sounds. Because the original designer didn’t anticipate such a change, there are features in the model’s history that cause interference. The video tip shows you how to use Synchronous Technology to make the change, while keeping the model’s history intact.
Last year at Hannover Fair, lots of people were talking about Industry 4.0. This is a concept that seems to have a different name in every region. Iíve been referring to it as the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), not to be confused with the plain old Internet of Things (IoT). Others refer to it as the Connected Industry, the smart factory concept, M2M, data extraction, and so on.
