Thanks for this article, Beth. This is an exciting development in composites, especially because their structures are so complex and tricky to manufacture.

I agree, Ivan. I think given how prevalent the use of composites is becoming in everything from automobiles to aircraft, most of the CAD and CAE vendors have and will continue to incorporate composite functionality into their core platforms.

With more and more composites on the horizon this can only be a smart move on their part.  Getting these tools into the ands of designers and engineers will speed adoption and in the long term drive down costs.  I am sure it will also affect the strength and quality of the parts it produces.
