completes the biggest CAD software migration project successfully

Key criteria to switch from the CATIA V5 design software, which had been used for many years, to Siemens NX, were the improvement of efficiency and sustainability - and the wish to integrate the product data management software currently used by Daimler, which forms the IT framework for all the development and product planning processes, with the CAD system. Dr Michael Gorriz, CIO Daimler: "I would like to thank all the people who have worked so hard to complete our biggest IT migration project in recent decades to the planned schedule. The introduction of the new design and product data software not only means that we are well prepared for the future.

Prelude to COFES: What Does a “System” Look Like? Thoughts On SpaceClaim Engineer 2015. Posted by Deelip Menezes Featured, Opinions Wednesday, November 19th, 2014 Today morning SpaceClaim’s Director of Product Management Justin Hendrickson walked me though SpaceClaim 2015, the latest version of their flagship MCAD system that was made available to customers today (see press release).

Thoughts On SpaceClaim Engineer 2015

Justin made it a point to mention that things have gotten better for SpaceClaim, the product, since the company was acquired by ANSYS. The leadership remains the same and he tells me that ANSYS engineers have been brought on board to speed up SpaceClaim development. The core SpaceClaim team still continues to drive development decisions. Like all good presentations, Justin’s had a couple of slides containing testimonials from large customers. I asked Justin if it was common for SpaceClaim to augment existing CAD licenses in a company instead of replacing them. This slide sums up what’s new in SpaceClaim Engineer 2015. At the top of the list is new tools for prepping models for 3D printing. 'Get Radical' Razor PowerWing Scooter Design Challenge.

Solid Edge subscription - This is Not the Cloud

One thing is for certain, this is not the cloud. Although rhetoric comparing Siemens' position on the cloud to its competitors has died down lately, the fact remains that most Solid Edge users are none too interested in the cloud right now.

Home > Hard Drive, Mobile Workstations, Workstations > The Advantages of Solid-State Drives for Solid Edge and Other CAD Applications A few of us CAD folks are experimenting with solid-state drives (SSDs), since they give fast boots and quick launches of Solid Edge (and most other high-end software programs).

However, SSDs cost more than traditional hard disk drives (HDDs), so only a lucky few are getting them. SSDs use solid-state memory to store data and provides access just like a traditional block i/o HHD. Siemens PLM and Synchronous Technology in Solid Edge. There certainly has been a lot going on in the CAD industry of late.

Siemens PLM and Synchronous Technology in Solid Edge

It seems as if just about everyone has been talking about adding or integrating direct modeling into what they offer. Thinking back, direct modeling and feature-history modeling have both been around for some time. But the first software provider to really try to integrate the two together was Siemens PLM when they launched Synchronous Technology. But since then, everyone’s caught up to what Siemens PLM did, right? After some investigation, I think there are several capabilities that are still unique.

We've got all 40 of them. Following up on announcements we made at SolidWorks World 2010. Eight months have passed since we took the stage at SolidWorks World in Anaheim and talked about cloud technology and the benefits it can bring to the product design process. As I travel around the world talking to companies and visiting user groups, I’ve noticed the same questions keep coming up, and I wanted to address some of them directly.

First, people are asking what this “cloud” thing is all about In a nutshell, “cloud computing” leverages the Internet to shift processor-intensive tasks from the desktop to more-powerful remote machines. We’ll talk more about technology later, but if you want to learn more now, this blog post by Faisal Ghadially does a nice job of exploring the different options. Second, people are asking if the introduction of cloud applications means the end of installed software.

Femap Version 10.1.1: Femap: Velocity Series: Solutions by Produ. Femap version 10.3 is the latest release of the state-of-the-art finite element modeling pre- and postprocessor for engineering simulation and analysis.

Femap Version 10.1.1: Femap: Velocity Series: Solutions by Produ

Femap works in combination with a wide variety of finite element analysis solvers, including the industry-leading NX Nastran application. The latest release of Femap, version 10.3, helps improve user productivity through a new automatic 3D geometry preparation capability. This removes the need for manual model cleanup, which is typically very time consuming, and prepares the geometry so that it can be easily meshed to create an accurate and efficient finite element model. The postprocessing toolbox has also been extended to house an overhauled and extended Free Body Tool that provides a detailed results reviewing capability for free body diagrams and interface loads.

This was a running joke within the CAD community on Twitter and I thought this might be a fun post. I sent out a tweet asking some of the CAD bloggers if they wanted to participate and got a few replies. The joke quickly got a life of its own catching both me and my company by surprise.
