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
Siemens and Georgia Institute of Technology are partnering to address limitations in the current additive manufacturing design-to-production chain in an applied research project as part of the federally backed America Makes program.
Most of the new 3D printers and 3D printing technologies in this crop are breaking some boundaries, whether it's build volume-per-dollar ratios, multimaterials printing techniques, or new materials types.
Independent science safety company Underwriters Laboratories is providing new guidance for manufacturers about how to follow the latest IEC standards for implementing safety features in programmable logic controllers.
