SDRC extended the power of VGX into the analysis arena. I-DEAS Variational Analysis, the first in a series of products powered by VGX technology, allows a designer to create a single piece of geometry that describes his or her entire design space. In I-DEAS VGX for Analysis, the design space is directly translated into an analysis space, such that when the first calculation is complete, you will know how the design will perform in every configuration described by the geometry. Variational Analysis also evaluates which design change produces the greatest effect on the model's performance. The new software allows an engineer to create product-specific design curves for any geometry with an unlimited number of design variables. Once meshed, one button gives the results for the entire design space in one solve, with no iterations and no re-start. SDRC Product Code 4432
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
