What hardware should I get in a workstation? Preface The purpose of the article is to take you on my journey in setting up my new workstation and the thought processes that were taken. I have chosen many computers over the years for both CAD and FEA for myself, coworkers and many customers. This, however,

Simulation is Child's Play, Broken Toys Aren't This is my presentation from CAASE20: The Conference on Advanced Analysis & Simulation in Engineering. This is my favorite simulation conference because it's solver agnostic. You can meet analysts outside of your particular software silo. Alas, this year it's virtual, however, as a plus side I have the
I rarely post anything 'salsey', so, this is going to be short and sweet. Due to the pandemic there is a huge sale on the 3DExperience platform. 50% off for the first quarter and 25% off for the second. It ends June 30th! The 3DExperience is perfect for remote working since the platform handles the

Updated with 02/24/2020 data. 03/20/2020 data is moved to the end for reference. Our response to COVID-19 is directly proportional to the actions that are taken. If we fail to act we
This has been a long time coming since, Dassault Systèms acquisition of SolidWorks in 1997. Back then there were discussions on how SolidWorks, Catia V5 and Enovia would work together.
Forward This is part 3 of a multi-part series which goes through the custom joint replacement to a finger due to rheumatoid arthritis. Part 1 Scan data to CAD Part 2 CAD to FEA Part 3 FEA to Fatigue Durability Analysis (fe-safe/Rubber) The two silicone variants reported in Leslie et al (2008) are compared to
