How our VR experience transports you to our test lab

When we visit customers or exhibit at trade shows, we now take more than free product samples. Using our VR glasses, we instantly transport you to our factory to explore the world’s largest test lab for tribopolymers.

Sketching in 3D with air scaffolding

A team of researchers from KAIST have developed a mid-air 3D sketching tool, combining the strengths of gesture and pen input. They say the technique will ease the way for ideation in three dimensions, leading to efficient product design in terms of time and cost.

New in ANSYS SpaceClaim

ANSYS SpaceClaim 2016 added new capabilities to change the way you think about reverse engineering. Now users can create precise geometry for both prismatic and organic shapes.

Solid Edge University provides training in ST8

The third Solid Edge University event took place at Silverstone University Technical College. It brought together users, resellers and Siemens PLM to network and provided training in the latest version of Solid Edge 3D CAD software.

Convert 2D to 3D Models in Minutes

While there is much hype about 3D printing, many manufacturers are still looking for a fast and easy way to convert 2D drawings to machinable 3D models.

The replacement of 3D CAD?

A US news report looks at what could be the next generation design tool that will incorporate elements of 3D printing and 3D modelling in to what is being called Programmable Matter.

Czech engineers unveil flying bicycle

Three engineering companies based in the Czech Republic have used Dassault Systèmes' 3DExperience software to construct a flying electric bicycle.

SolidWorks spline basics

This video aims to provide newer users of SolidWorks with a base to get them started on using the different methods for creating splines.

Cooling of an injection mould in Comsol

This video shows pipe flow and heat transfer using the example of the cooling of a steering wheel injection mould. The model fully couples the 1D cooling channels with the heat transfer simulation of the 3D mould and the polyurethane part. CAD geometry is imported into Comsol Multiphysics.

SAE car suspension with SolidWorks Motion: Part 1

This video is the first part of three which shows how to use SolidWorks Motion to analyde a suspension system from a Formula SAE car. In the first part, the process of eliminating redundancies within your model will be shown. Removing redundancies is an important step when using SolidWorks Motion in order to get accurate results and to have the simulation run properly. The other two videos cover the set up and running of the motion study and then post processing of the results.

SAE car suspension with SolidWorks Motion: Part 2

This is part two out of a three part series showing how to use SolidWorks Motion to analyse a suspension system in a Formula SAE car. The second part covers the set up and running of the motion study. A spring, damper, and a linear motor are used in this simulation to simulate a tire hitting a hole in the road. The last video in the series will look at the post processing of this study.
