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.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
