The Rise of the Simulation and Test Executive

Blueprint

Aren’t inter-departmental politics fun? They occur in any organization when resources are few. And since the economic downturn and executive’s turn towards cost control strategies, budgets have been rare resources indeed. In this post, we’ll look at how the often conflicted relationship between simulation and test is taking a friendlier turn, especially under a rising […]

Rethinking CAM: Let’s Go Back to Where It All Began

Creo Elements/Direct Modeling Express 4.0

Why do we model things in CAD, anyway? Before there was collaboration, visualization and analysis, CAD models were developed to support computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) and numerically controlled (NC) fabrication machines. NC machines carry out subtractive process like milling and turning, while additive technologies like 3D printing build shapes out of layers of material. Whether additive […]

Direct Modeling is Better at Capturing Design Intent

PTC Creo Layout

If there’s one thing I’ve learned over the past five years, it’s that debate gives you new perspectives. Such was the case coming out of a webinar I presented in that was titled The Pros and Cons of 3D Modeling Paradigms: Direct Modeling and History-based Modeling. Brian Thompson of PTC and Dan Staples of Siemens […]

Rethinking Simulation: Why your company should take another look

Simulation Technology

Not that long ago, design and simulation were done by different parts of the engineering staff. This made sense because simulation required specialized skills and the tools were hard to use. Moving models from CAD to CAE, simplifying and repairing them, and ensuring that the forces were correct all required an expert’s touch. Each cycle took a […]
