Enginsoft distributes shape-deformation software
Optimal Solutions Software LLC and Enginsoft have announced an agreement that will see Enginsoft as the distributor for Sculptor software in Europe.
Sculptor is a shape-deformation software capable of arbitrarily deforming a computerised model whose shape is defined by a CAE mesh.
These mesh models are typically created using one of the leading CFD or FEA codes, (Fluent, CFX, Ansys, Simulia, Star CCM+, OpenFoam, Nastran, etc.).
A Sculptor module, Back2CAD, gives users the ability to deform their CAD models to match the optimised CAE shapes or to deform CAD models directly.
Sculptor can be used with a user's existing CAD and CAE tools.
By using Sculptor's Arbitrary Shape Deformation (ASD) technology, design engineers and analysts can reshape objects in a few minutes.
Sculptor also provides automated shape optimisation that eliminates trial-and-error methods and methods that use CAD parameters for shape change.
Aerotech has developed a line of materials, bearings, magnetics, electronics, feedback devices, motion controllers and software to meet the requirements of the nanotechnology industries.
EPLAN Harness proD is a professional 3D tool connecting the data from mechanical and electrical construction systems within a single system to allow the efficient development of a wire harness in 3D.
Bürkert, a manufacturer of control and measuring systems for fluids and gases, uses an international network of Systemhaus facilities to take requests from customers and develop them into finished products locally. According to the company, its development engineers can pool resources and knowledge in order to solve problems at the Systemhaus design and development hubs.
Delcam will demonstrate the latest release of its Powershape Pro software for design, modelling for manufacture and reverse engineering at the Develop3D Live conference and exhibition, to be held at Warwick University on 15 April. The 2014 R2 release includes a range of functionality for the design of products and tooling. In particular, it introduces powerful new tools to make re-engineering complex parts from scanned data faster and easier.
According to EPLAN, productivity is the lifeblood of organisations and often a revolutionary change is needed instead of just small process improvements. To this end, this white paper focuses on how a change in CAE systems — to one that creates a new paradigm for structuring workflows — can bring individual and business-wide productivity to an entirely new level.
