Where’s the Math? Link Calculations to Model Geometry with Embedded Worksheets

Where do dimensions come from? More likely than not, you or somebody else calculates them. Heights, surface areas, fastener lengths—somebody does the math and figures out exactly what parameters a model needs to perform to spec. It’s all part of an engineer’s job. So where is that math today? As part of a company’s intellectual […]

Did You Know? Family Tables

Suppose you want to design a group of similar products that vary only slightly from each other. For example, think of a collection of socket wrenches ranging from 0.25 to 1 inch.
