the data in Teamcenter with the 3-D models in NX to provide a simple and
intuitive way to collect, collate and visually present PLM information in the CAD
environment, enabling engineers to quickly analyze a wide variety of product
development parameters and make better design decisions faster. The HD3D environment
enables engineers to visually comprehend PLM data through interactive
navigation and the ability to drill down as needed. Through color-coding,
on-screen tagging and legends, the HD3D user can "see" important data such as
parts that are behind schedule, supplier related data, or recent design
changes, allowing for fast assessment and interpretation.HD3D allows design teams to instantly gather requested PLM data and
visualize its impact directly within the context of the 3-D design, resulting
in a level of insight that produces better decisions faster, enhancing
innovation and reducing time to market. HD3D removes this time consuming
process and delivers a highly visual interactive 3-D environment that displays
any type of PLM data in the context of the CAD model. The data can be color
coded and tagged to support informed visual analytics and rapid decision making
with a higher level of confidence.
A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
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.
