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.
In today’s automotive marketplace, design has become the key competitive advantage for many manufacturers and suppliers. For these companies, top business initiatives include streamlining the conceptual design process, increasing the number of iterations, developing desirable designs and building brand equity. Global brands, global design and rapidly shifting market trends are contributing to a change in automotive styling. Designs must resonate with many different customers and raise ...
It takes many activities and skills to bring the ideas and designs of architects/engineers to fruition. In this white paper, Man and Machine discusses building information modelling (BIM) — which attempts to standardise the creation and exchange of information to make the design, construction and operational management of a facility or infrastructure asset more efficient.
Today’s successful automotive manufacturers and OEMs must design innovative, alluring vehicles — and bring them to market faster than their competitors. To drive consumer interest, they need to develop interiors and exteriors that are perfectly smooth, pleasing to the eye and pleasant to the touch. Leading automotive companies rely on Autodesk Alias Surface for technical surfacing tools to create these high-quality, accurate and precise surfaces.
Altair has announced that rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing expert Materialise has joined the Altair Partner Alliance, making 3-Matic STL software available to Hyperworks users. With 3-Matic STL, users can make design modifications directly on STL, scanned and computer-aided design (CAD) data in preparation for 3D printing.
