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.
Delcam has launched the 2015 version of its PowerSHAPE Pro CAD-for-CAM system for modelling for manufacture and reverse engineering. The new release includes improvements in direct modelling, surface modelling and reverse engineering, as well as support for data from Creaform HandySCAN handheld scanners.
Power Systems Manufacturing has used ANSYS simulation software supplied by IDAC in an effort to eliminate compressor blade failure.
Delcam Taiwan will highlight developments across Delcam’s range of manufacturing software on stand 4C603 at the TMTS exhibition to be held in Taichung, Taiwan, from 5–9 November 2014. The CAD/CAM software on show will include the 2015 releases of the PowerSHAPE Pro CAD package, the PowerMILL CAM system for high-speed and five-axis machining and the FeatureCAM feature-based programming software.
At Euromold in Frankfurt, Germany, on 25–28 November 2014, Delcam will highlight the 2015 releases of the PowerSHAPE Pro CAD package, the PowerMILL CAM system and the Delcam Electrode suite for the design, machining and inspection of electrodes.
Delcam’s ArtCAM artistic CAD/CAM software is being used by the workshops at St Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre to produce scenery for operas and other productions.
