By using Simulink® and SimMechanics, Instron Structural Testing (www.instron.com) has achieved simulation that was five times faster than previous ones when designing a multi-axis test fixture that can apply dynamic loads to a race car. The company used Simulink to develop the controller and SimMechanics to develop the mechanical part of the test fixture, as well as other mechanics, such as 15 moving parts for each wheel.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
