Provides controlled access to SolidWorks
The latest version of the company's Adept software for SolidWorks® 2005 is designed to provide users with a comprehensive, out-of-the-box document management system to find, view, track, secure, and control access to SolidWorks drawings and all related PC files. Organizations with mixed software environments and geographically dispersed design and business groups can provide controlled access to SolidWorks, Autodesk-based design products, Microsoft Office, and other business-critical documents in a centralized data repository on a LAN, WAN, or across the Internet.
SMLC-Lite is designed as a cost-effective motion, logic, HMI, and networking solution for one- to 3.5-axis systems. It lowers system costs and reduces complexity using off-the-shelf components, IEC 61131-3 languages, and powerful motion software. It features the QNX real-time operating system. The use of a RTOS facilitates the integration of new functionality and eases product life cycle maintenance by allowing for easy migration to new and more powerful hardware platforms as they become available.
NEW CAD FUNCTION
Provides double curvature end caps
The Dome function is now available in the company's Version 10 CAD/CAM solution. It provides double-curvature end caps and is designed to be easy to use. The Dome command can produce a concave or convex shape, picking up a 2D or 3D profile. The users control the height and blending of the Dome via straightforward options; users can also influence the trangency and curvature of the Dome face in relation to existing faces.
FEA SOFTWARE SOLUTION
Provides constraint-based environment
Engineered to use geometric dimensions and constraints to provide the parametric sketching capabilities, the 2D DCM is a robust, industry-tested solution that is an alternative to resource-intensive in-house development. It will be used in ABAQUS/CAE, the modeling and visualization environment for ABAQUS® suite of finite element analysis (FEA) software. The integration is designed to provide a constraint-based sketching environment, thus enhancing its usability and parametric modeling capabilities.
Eliminates compatibility problem
A free software component, DWGgateway, is available. It is designed for users who need to work with multiple versions of DWG files, regardless of the AutoCAD version that produced it. It enables AutoCAD versions going back to AutoCAD R14 for the first time to read, edit, and save AutoCAD (.dwg and .dwf) 2D files created by more recent versions of the software, including AutoCAD 2005.
MSC.Fatigue is designed to help engineers evaluate durability and damage tolerance of components and systems, and to make changes early in the design cycle before prototypes are ever created. This increases product durability, lessens product launch risks, facilitates faster time-to-market, and reduces prototyping and testing costs. Benefits include reduced simulation setup time when using the Aerospace Load Spectrum capability, industrial strength simulations using the Large Model Translation capability, and enhanced productivity using the SIMMAX utility.
The UltraSPARC® processor-based Sun Blade™ 1500 and Sun Blade 2500 workstations now feature a 40 percent performance increase. The workstations are intended for software development, engineering, and scientific research. They are designed to help developers and system administrators take advantage of the Solaris™ 10 OS. They are 100 percent binary-compatible with older models, so that applications can run unmodified, enabling users to protect their software and knowledge base investments.
Sun Microsystems Inc.
The company's updated website offers a variety of information, including descriptions of the firm's Mold-Vac Systems, mold evacuation equipment and gas within mold cavities prior to and during plastic injection molding processes. The site also provides customer success articles that describe how they are using Mold-Vac Systems in real-world applications. Also, the company profiles in detail an explanation of its consulting experience and the software technologies.
CAE Services Corp.
The company has added a new model morphing tool set to help designers experiment with new shapes and old designs. It offers the capability to bend, twist, stretch, pull, and push solid or nonsolid geometry to enhance a shape. The tools have a variety of inputs using points and blend-to curves, with a range of blending/fairing controls. The tools have been integrated into the company's user interface.
