Student product developers, like many of their professional counterparts, don’t always have the luxury of handing off their designs to an analysis department. In student groups, much like engineers who work in a small shop, team members may have to do it all: gather requirements, model concept ideas, create good-looking and ergonomic products, and apply simulation and analysis to make sure the design is reliable.
The PTC Studio videos demonstrate some of the basics of PTC Creo that can make students more agile in every phase of design. But the truth is, we’ve been bringing these videos to our readers on this blog because we think they are interesting to anyone who has to do more with less, especially under tight deadlines.
We’ve already talked about the PTC Creo Flexible Modeling Extension video and the simulation tools video. But this next demonstration brings it all together in a real-world scenario: An engineer digitally applies force to a part, finds too much stress, adds material, and runs the analysis again. All in 4 minutes and 14 seconds.
