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.
On 23 May 2013, Delcam will host two 20-minute webinars dedicated to the efficient design and manufacture of electrodes. The webinars will describe how Delcam Electrode enables the faster and more reliable production of electrodes.
CAD Schroer’s free Medusa4 Personal mechanical design software is being used by leather goods designer Bernhard Kreuzer to design high-quality, made-to-measure belts, handbags, custom sheathes for knives, mobile phone cases and archery accessories.
The Simoldes Group, a European mould-making company, has standardised on Delcam’s Powershape CAD software and Powermill CAM software for the manufacture of its tooling.
The Altair Partner Alliance has announced that Impact Design Europe has joined the programme with its impact analysis tool, Crash Cad Calculate (CCC). CCC is designed to assist in the design and optimisation of thin-walled cross sections of beams used in the creation of any crashworthy structure.
Delcam will promote its range of software and services for the aerospace manufacturing and maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) industries on the Midlands Aerospace Alliance stand at the Paris Air Show, which will take place on 17–23 June 2013.
