Well, here it is. ANSYS Discovery Live is finally … live. And that’s great, because it means we can have a first look at the software and tell you if it lives up to expectations. And I must say, I have been looking forward to trying Discov…Continue reading →
FloMASTER, the computational fluid dynamics (CFD) platform from Siemens-owned Mentor Graphics, has announced the latest release of its fluid mechanics simulation package for piping applications.
The new release offers enhancements via increased integra…
It’s been a good couple of weeks for Texas-based CAE company Pointwise.
At the end of February, the Fort Worth company received the 2018 Small Business of the Year Award from the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce. And just this week, the company ann…
OK, so it might not be a huge army of killer robots, but a small army of practical manufacturing robots is still pretty cool, right? It sure is.
And with the new release of OCTOPUZ 2.0, efficient robotic simulation is within your grasp.
OCTOPUZ 2.0 h…Continue reading →
Being an engineering student is tough. Not only do we have the stresses of exams and assignments to contend with, but many of us are broke for the most part, meaning we can’t afford to drop several thousand dollars on engineering software license…Continue reading →
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.
