How CAD Consolidation Adds Benefits Upstream and Downstream

Most CAD consolidation projects focus on the value of one 3D CAD solution for detailed design. But with the introduction of design suites that cover more of the design process, opportunities arise upstream and downstream of detailed design. Here’s how: Consolidate Upstream from Detailed Design From bid proposal to concept design, many products begin taking […]

Profiles in Flexible Modeling: Typhoon Cleans Up with PTC

If your old computer shuts down suddenly, even when it’s fully powered, you may have a dust problem. Very often, the fan and heat sinks accumulate debris (see photo above) and stop cooling the chassis. That overheats the computer. And that causes it to preemptively power off before more expensive damage occurs. (Note. I may […]

Simulations Conducted Within CAD Systems Are Faster, Research Finds

I have always wondered if any advantage that CAD provides to the simulation process could be quantified. Naturally, one would assume that CAD does, in fact, offer some value to simulation efforts. But to my knowledge, that has never been verified. In an effort to solve this mystery, I included several questions on this topic […]

Tips for Selecting the Right CAD Bundle

Purchasing a package or bundle of CAD software offers distinct advantages over buying a core CAD product and then adding individual modules or extensions later. Yet, how do you choose which bundle is right for your company? This question matters more than you might think at first. A careful approach to choosing your software bundle […]

Desktop Engineering: 13-Year-Old FRC CADder Luke Dreams of a Personal Robotic Butler

Luke Orzechowski (age 13) wants a robotic butler, a personal servant powered by electromechanical principles. “It would have shelves for snacks and drinks,” he envisioned. Luke’s robotic butler is still in a very early stage of development, merely a sketch in 3D at this point. But his other robot — the one he helped design […]

Who’s Consolidating on PTC Creo? An Overview

“Consolidating on a single CAD system helps enable design and component reuse and promotes better collaboration among engineers,” says Jim Brown, president of Tech-Clarity. A unified CAD strategy, that is, using one CAD package for all your design work in-house, saves on IT, support, and hardware. Plus, it ensures teams work smoothly with each other. And […]
