APEI Builds First Multiphysics Simulation App with the Application Builder

A tab in the APEI application  helps the user select the appropriate wire diameter, loop geometry, and number of wires to find the maximum current the bonds can carry without overheating.

Last month COMSOL announced the release of version 5.0 of its COMSOL Multiphysics software, which includes the Application Builder. The Application Builder, which allows COMSOL software users to build an intuitive interface to run any COMSOL model, has been very well received by the engineering community and users are already building applications and exploring the benefits of sharing their models with colleagues and customers worldwide. Application Builder Expands Access to Simulation One... Read More


Siemens Rolls out Tecnomatix 12

Siemens Tecnomatix 12's robot programming simulation solution for dual arm and cooperative robots can automate more manual tasks, improve efficiency and quality.

Factories today hardly resemble the factories of yesteryear. Today’s factories are full of high-tech digital machinery and robotics that are highly automated. To make today’s digital factories run more efficiency, manufacturing software also needs to advanced. Siemens this week released the newest version of Tecnomatix software for digital manufacturing, which the company says will help companies in a wide range of industries innovate better and at less risk. Let’s... Read More


ANSYS Releases SpaceClaim 2015

The new release of SpaceClaim improves product development and manufacturing workflows by enabling engineers to work faster with expansive editing and management of faceted models, improved toolpath functionality for the machinist and more complex geometry creation upgrades.

Today ANSYS announced the new release of SpaceClaim software that it claims will speed the time it takes users to manipulate geometries, prepare 3D printing files and reduce product development times. SpaceClaim 2015 is the first product to be introduced since SpaceClaim’s acquisition by ANSYS earlier in the year. According to the company, SpaceClaim 2015 will greatly improve product development and manufacturing workflows by enabling engineers to work faster through such... Read More


Dassault Dazzles Attendees in Vegas with 3DEXPERIENCE

A visualization of the Living Heart Project model being explored in 3D.

Editors and analysts in the tech industry are infamously hard to impress, as most of us have spent years–some of us decades–covering the latest wiz-bang software and gaga gadgetry. Though I still stand behind that statement, I will say there were several moments during my recent visit to Las Vegas for Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Forum that left me rather awestruck. Hard to summarize two information-packed days, but I’ll at least share a few of my “wow”... Read More


IronCAD Releases Multiphysics Integration

With MPIC, users at any skill level will be able to use full FEA capabilities. Seamlessly integrated, users can simply add material, forces or constraints and the AutoSolve meshes and returns analysis results.

Earlier this week, IronCAD released a new seamlessly integrated Multi-Physics module. Multi-Physics for IronCAD (MPIC) is the latest generation of integrated CAD/FEA for general entry to advanced design simulations. The software focuses on ease of use and provides fully coupled Multiphysics with stress, thermal, and electrostatic analysis. Traditional FEA solutions are not particularly well suited for quick, in-process design analysis. With MPIC, users at any skill level will... Read More


2015 IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite (DCS) is Released

The new COMPOSE iOS app allows users to import, export, view and collaborate with extended teams to speed up the development process.

IronCAD today announces the release of 2015 IronCAD Design Collaboration Suite (DCS). According to the company, customers will benefit from an improved user experience, enhanced design capabilities and new collaboration tools. Simplifying the user experience is a key objective for the IronCAD development team and the 2015 release delivered upon this by extending its Configuration-Based Design capabilities such as its unique catalog interface. IronCAD DCS catalogs allow design... Read More


Luxion Releases KeyShot v5.1

Six new KeyShot Procedural Textures are available in KeyShot, including Brushed (3D), Camouflage (3D), Lattice Circular (2D), Lattice Polygon (2D), Spots (3D) and Wood Adv. (3D)

Product designers and engineers are increasingly being asked by various downstream departments to create eye-catching visualizations of product designs to use in marketing and sales materials. Luxion, a leading developer of advanced rendering and lighting technology and maker of KeyShot, makes this task much easier. The company’s product, KeyShot was the first real time ray tracing and global illumination program on the market. KeyShot today announces the release of KeyShot... Read More


Mentor Graphics Releases Enhanced Flowmaster Tool

Mentor Graphics' Flowmaster simulation software is used at every stage of development, from concept through design optimization and validation, providing minimized design effort to accurately simulate complex systems.

Mentor Graphics Corporation just released a newly enhanced version of its popular Flowmaster tool for advanced thermo-fluid analysis simulation. Several new capabilities include a new Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI) and enhancements to secondary air analysis for its Flowmaster simulation software solution for thermo-fluid systems. The Flowmaster product is used at every stage of development, from concept through design optimization and validation, providing minimized design... Read More


COMSOL Releases COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0 and the Application Builder

This application was created using the Application Builder available in COMSOL Multiphysics and a model of a Li-ion battery pack. The user can test different operating conditions, battery geometries, and other parameters in order to find the desired thermal behavior.

On Halloween, COMSOL released the newest version of its popular software, COMSOL Multiphysics 5.0, as well as an Application Builder product. Thanks to the addition of the Application Builder, COMSOL users can now design specialized applications to provide researchers, designers and manufacturers with access to multiphysics simulation. COMSOL Version 5.0 also features extensive product updates and three new add-on products. With the Application Builder, COMSOL users can now build... Read More


Autodesk Releases HSMWorks 2015 CAM Software for SolidWorks Users

Autodesk releases HSMWorks 2015 CAM software for SolidWorks users.

Autodesk today announced the release of HSMWorks 2015, a fully integrated CAM solution for users of SolidWorks software. Yes, that’s right. It’s for SolidWorks users. The company was bought two years ago by Autodesk with a promise to its dedicated flock of users that it would continue to both support and sell the product to users of its competitor, SolidWorks, and the company has stood by its promise. In fact, this release of HSMWorks 2015 marks the third major release... Read More

Harley-Davidson Uses High-Tech Tools to Create First Electric Bike

Harley-Davidson's LiveWire electric motorcycle has a 74-hp motor and can go up to 92 mph with zero emissions.

When you think of Harley-Davidson motorcycles, often referred to as “hogs,” its iconic, rumbling sound is often the first thing that comes to mind. The company at one point famously sought to trademark its bikes’ distinctive sound. It sounds this way because of its unique two-cylinder, v-twin engine design. The engine has a single pin […]
