It can be tricky to find a technical publishing package that suits all of our requirements.
Many technical illustration/publication packages are very limited in terms of what type of 3D files they can import. From experience, my own preferred tech illu…

At the end of February, university race car building team Formula Electric Belgium unveiled its latest design that it plans to enter into the prestigious Formula Electric contest.
The new vehicle, dubbed the Umicore Pulse, is the fourth car built by Fo…
Have you ever wondered how forensic investigators do their job? Just the other day I was wondering how much simulation has made its way into those types of industries. Do auto incident investigators need to do full kinematic calculations by hand? How a…Continue reading →
Technical drawing packages tend to come in two flavors. The first is the stand-alone, dedicated and expensive variant, and the second flavor is the integrated (often stripped-down) illustration package, which comes bundled with a main CAD platform.
Integrating a computer-aided engineering (CAE) platform can be a headache, especially for small- and medium-sized businesses that may be on a budget, either financially or in terms of manpower required for an enterprise-level software deployment.
ANSYS has announced the latest release of its “pervasive engineering simulation” package, ANSYS 19. The latest version covers a wide range of updates across multiple domains, including structures, fluids, thermal, electromagnetics and more….Continue reading →
Simulation giant MSC Corporation has announced the passing of its co-founder, Dr. Richard MacNeal, aged 94, on Jan. 30.
Dr. MacNeal founded MSC Software Corporation in 1963 along with Robert Schwendler under the name of MacNeal-Schwendler Corporat…
Cleveland—home of LeBron James and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame—has given you yet another reason to visit in 2018: the country’s best-attended independent simulation conference, this year called CAASE. And, as if the planets are ali…Continue reading →
Finite element analysis (FEA) allows us to simulate various forces acting on virtual components and informs us of design decisions before we even cut a single piece of physical material. This can save a lot of time and money. However, FEA does some job…Continue reading →
