Boston Engineering Brings Robotic Tuna to Life with PTC Solutions

Robotic TunaWhile it’s true that the mechanical engineering field is full of talented designers, more often than not, nature trumps our best efforts. Consider the tuna fish. A tuna can cruise at about 60 mph, turn 180°, and then accelerate to about 22 mph in less than two lengths of its own body. Leveraging Nature’s Designs […]

Free Webinar Series: Learn the Benefits of PTC Simulation Solutions

Problems found earlier in the design process reduce development costs and save time. See how simulating the performance of your design early and often can reduce physical prototyping and enable you to make better design decisions. In just 25 minutes, see how PTC’s simulation solutions can help you accurately: Predict product performance while you design […]

Seven Things You Should Know about PTC Creo’s Simulation Capabilities

PTC Creo provides a broad range of simulation solutions that enable design engineers and CAE analysts to easily analyze and validate both parts and assemblies. Our simulation tools directly leverage the 3D CAD geometry and seamless interoperability between PTC Creo apps, ensuring that time isn’t wasted and errors aren’t introduced due to data translation. PTC Creo […]

Desktop Engineering: The Best of Both Worlds: Direct and Indirect 3D modeling

by Beth Stackpole, Desktop Engineering. Automotive manufacturers have embraced an integrated workflow that incorporates elements of both direct and indirect 3D modeling. While history-based, or parametric modeling tools held court for the better part of two decades, a fresh crop of CAD programs burst onto the scene a few years ago, touting a more flexible […]

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 […]

Desktop Engineering: Consolidating Design Software, Extending Value Beyond 3D CAD Consolidation

By Anthony J. Lockwood, Desktop Engineering “Consolidating Design Software, Extending Value Beyond 3D CAD Consolidation” is a 13-page white paper that makes the case for consolidating your design environment with an integrated design suite that is multi-CAD capable. Written by Jim Brown for Tech-Clarity, a research and consulting firm, the paper argues that an integrated […]

Three Years of 10 Most-Read Blog Posts

Guess who turned three this month? This very blog! We launched in October, 2010 with an article about cloud computing from Barb Schmitz. Articles from our executives came next as they articulated this new thing, PTC Creo. A flurry of customer and press reactions followed. Over the past 36 months, we’ve posted a story […]

ConnectPress: PTC Creo, PTC Windchill, & PTC Arbortext Called Out in Top 10 PLM Software Report

The product lifecycle management (PLM) software market is evolving and growing rapidly, for several important reasons. PLM lies at the heart of a company’s efforts to move a product to market and beyond. At its essence, PLM describes the engineering aspect of a product, from managing descriptions and properties of a product through its development […]
