Creating a Roadmap for Your CAD Installation

Monica Schnitger

One topic we didn’t cover in the New Year, New CAD post is the concept of “CAD to grow into.” It’s rare these days that CAD is about “design” only. Today’s CAD solutions typically include some level of visualization, data management, and simulation. But how do you decide what is right for you? And do […]

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: The Schaeffler Group

The ancients didn’t have combustion engines, so it makes sense that they wouldn’t have had cars. But why didn’t they have bicycles? A Short History of Ball Bearings The answer lies, in part, in the ball bearings. Without a technique to keeping moving parts from rubbing against each other, carts and other rolling systems break […]

Fantom Abandons SolidWorks, Manages Large Assemblies with PTC Creo

At its heart, a vacuum cleaner is a straightforward device. An electric motor drives a fan, and the fan pushes air through an exhaust vent. Physics do the rest: the airflow creates a low-pressure region that, as you may recall from school, causes ambient air to rush into the void. And with that ambient air […]
