Release 12 features a new material data management system that includes a general database that contains properties for common materials such as steel, concrete, and aluminum. Users can add to or change the material properties contained within the database to fit their own needs and then apply this information to points within the model. Users can also interface the material data management system with other information sources for material properties.

While injuries happen on production floors for a variety of reasons, of the top 10 OSHA rules that are most often ignored in industrial settings, two directly involve machine design: lockout/tagout procedures (LO/TO) and machine guarding.
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.
