2009 - The Year of … Confusion?

Over the last few years CAD companies have introduced many new terms as they have announced new product capabilities. Most significant are the capabilities related to direct geometry interaction and manipulation. The industry is becoming more familiar with the concept of history-free modeling (direct modeling, direct editing). As the awareness grows, the industry is trying to understand just what this technology means to the product development process. Unfortunately for many it’s still a bit confusing. Is this history-free direct modeling technology complementary to our parametric history based environment or is it perhaps a replacement? It can certainly be a bit confusing for product development organizations to understand how this history-free technology can bring value and how it fits into the process. Siemens introduced Synchronous Technology in 2008.

Have a happy and successful new year! Paul. PTC Forms Business Units « Posted by Deelip Menezes Others Saturday, December 19th, 2009 A PTC Partner newsletter alerted me to the news that PTC has formed separate business units for its product lines.

Previously PTC has just two primary product lines – Pro/ENGINEER and Windchill. Over the years, due to acquisitions and internal growth, its product lines have dramatically increased. Next year they will have a total of eight major product lines: Pro/ENGINEERWindchillCoCreateArbortextMathcadProductViewSharePoint/SPDInsight Analytics This has put a severe strain on PTC’s sales and service employees who need to cover all these product lines.

Maybe that it was done in about two hours. Actually, the simulation took only about 15 minutes to create using the task simulation capabilities of our digital human models, Jack and Jill. The majority of the time was consumed deciding on the wall paper design, curtains, and floor covering I wish you happy holidays and all the best for you, your family and friends. So You Want To Make CAD Software - Siemens PLM Software Blog. Jump to Comments by Mark Burhop | 19 Jan 2010 I had a talk with one of our software developers the other day asking what it is like to work on CAD software. You might think this was over coffee in the break room but really, we were separated by several thousand miles. For Solid Edge Simulation , we have developers contributing from all over the world (Alabama, Pennsylvania, Ohio in the US and England and India outside the US.) and this is just a small product. In this case I was talking with Sameer Kanikdale in Pune, India .

Sameer tells me Pune is famous for its scenic beauty, rich natural resources, and historical and religious places. Since software development is much the same around the world, I asked him what skills are good for an engineering software developer.

There are some major differences between other virtual worlds and 3DVIA Scenes…Here are four key differences between 3DVIA Scenes and other virtual worlds: 1- The Vision 2- The Open format 3- No software required 4- Social Development Let me elaborate… 1- The Vision: We’re starting off with the basics. SolidWorks Blog. Autodesk Cloud Hard Sell Today I attended part of a web cast from Autodesk introducing their 2014 line of products. I have to say that they have an amazing breadth of tools . Some of the tools they have acquired are truly tops in their respective industries, like Alias, 3DSmax, Moldflow, and many others. It’s hard getting past my vision of Autodesk as being the cheap junk aisle of the CAD market. Products in the past such as AutoCAD, Mechanical Desktop, Inventor, and Algor have reinforced this notion.

An in-depth look at Autodesk’s cloud-enabled, hybrid MCAD modeling software Reprinted with permission of Design Engineering, October 16, 2013by Ralph Grabowski In response to the CAD industry’s direct modeling mania, Autodesk first announced Inventor Fusion—a desktop installed 3D modeler that combined freeform and solid modeling in a history-free environment—as tech demo on June 24, 2009.

Four years later, Autodesk similarly picked June 25 of this year to publicly announce Fusion 360, a cloud-enabled version of the original, thereby adding a modeling component its line of 360 products (including Simulation, PLM and BIM). Fusion 360 is hybrid software in two ways. For one, it’s not a pure cloud-only app running in a Web browser. When Autodesk introduced Fusion 360 to the media, the company said it felt in the middle of a perfect storm, created by the triad of new types of technology, new ways to access it and new demands for ways of working.
