SDRC has released version 6 of the I-DEAS Master Series. It extends VGX technology from parts to assemblies, and provides other enhancements for CAD, CAM, and CAE applications. Engineering analysis, or CAE, was one of the original niches for SDRC. The CAE capabilities include new section meshing tools that, SDRC says, enable users to easily analyze complex geometry from I-DEAS and other CAD systems without having to remove or suppress detailed product features. Users can make design changes, which automatically update the analysis. The software also allows engineers to add manufacturing annotations to the master model. Dimensions, annotations, and URLs are supported in VRML. SDRC Inc.: Product Code 4262
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
