    Introducing Simulia Structural Simulation Engineer

    April 19, 2019

    It is becoming increasingly important for innovative companies to accelerate new product time to market without compromising quality. In order to do this, teams need to easily perform more complex simulations that are reliable, have easy access to validation tools for quick evaluation of designs and be able to share all these results and ideas with other teams. To meet these demands, Dassault Systèmes has introduced SIMULIA Structural Simulation Engineer (SSE).

    5 Basic Steps for Making a Functional Prototype

    March 26, 2019

    3D printing a functional prototype is one of the most critical steps in the development of any product or solution. It allows for testing, hands-on fit and finish testing and the ability to make design iterations on the fly before the final product is made. It allows for problems and defects to be found quickly, saving you both time and money. Plus, prototyping can be done in 5 easy steps.

    Managing Heat in Modern Electronic Devices (Part 2)

    February 25, 2019

    In part one of this series, we evaluated how heat accumulation on a circuit board can lead to components shorting out and causing product performance issues. In this follow-up article and video, we're going to explore another important consideration when designing connected devices - battery life.

    From the latest smartphone release to the driving range in electric vehicles, battery efficiency and performance is often a deciding factor in consumer purchasing decisions.

    Managing Heat in Modern Electronic Devices (Part 1)

    February 4, 2019

    “We have decided to halt production and sales of the [Modern Electronic Device] in order to consider our consumers’ safety first and foremost.”-Samsung.

    After making this statement, Samsung was forced to recall 2.5 million devices already shipped or in consumers' hands. That is a position no company wants to be in, but the reality is that more and more companies, in order to compete, must keep up with the technological advances. Businesses and consumers are demanding more from the electronic devices they purchase.

    In this two-part video series, we’ll demonstrate how simple validation tests can ensure your design is handling the thermal load properly and if not, how to make the necessary changes to dissipate heat and avoid critical temperatures, field failures and thermal runaway.

    5 Reasons to Use The Cloud For 3D CAD

    January 30, 2019

    When I saw an article request come across for the top five reasons to use the cloud for 3D CAD, I snagged it before it could be distributed. This is something that has always fascinated me and I’m often wondering why the design world, the world in which I live, has been so slow to adopt it. I use Netsuite, Office 365, Gmail, Amazon, Netflix, Pokémon Go and Fortnite almost daily but anytime I want to design, I’m sitting behind my laptop working locally. Here are my personal top five, of many, reasons to move the design to the cloud.

    Faster Results with Boundary Conditions

    January 7, 2019

    Symmetry and periodic boundary conditions in SOLIDWORKS Flow Simulation are used to reduce the size of the flow problem, thereby reducing analysis run time. Although these two computational domain boundary conditions are set up by editing the default computational domain, they both are very different.

    Heat Transfer and Thermal Analysis: When to Use FEA vs. CFD

    October 8, 2018

    Engineers often need to answer questions regarding heat transfer in their designs. As with many other things, the specific task or question being asked will determine what tool to use to get the best result. Here we look at answering the question of when to use Finite Element Analysis (FEA) vs. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) in heat transfer problems.
