Pushing Simulation through the Value Pyramid

Simulation pyramidIt’s the perennial question: Who does what? Let’s say you design industrial machinery, such as the device that shapes a potato chip, or a bottle capper, or, as Geoff Hedges recently profiled, a Wave Machine. A significant part of your job is designing the machine so that it’s efficient, it’s cost-effective to operate, and it […]

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 […]

The Splintering Needs of Engineering Simulation

elica_numerica1_0_0--400x300A couple weeks ago, I found myself in an interesting conversation. I was talking with a software executive who was considering starting up a new software company in the simulation space. His most basic question was “where is the greatest need in simulation today?” I’ll be frank; I struggled to answer. Not because all of […]

New video offers solutions to CAD interoperability problems

CAD technology analyst Chad Jackson, a frequent contributor to this blog, has launched a new video series entitled “Perspectives from Lifecycle Insights.” The debut issue delves deeply into the problems that engineers face as a result of dealing with too many CAD systems. It also discusses recent technology advances that can help engineers overcome those […]
