CAD and Simulation Peripherals

What gear do I use in my home office for CAD and simulation is commonly asked of me. Because of this I have created this post so that you can see and have links to what I'm currently using. In some cases I show what I would buy today because of upgrades or because my

Excessive Engineering: Fidget Spinner

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

3DExperience SALE!

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

Take COVID-19 Seriously, especially New Yorkers!

03/30/2020 Updated data is located in this shared Google doc. China's data is being universally questioned. Westchester is now tied with South Korea! 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

SolidWorks and Catia on the same Playground… 3DExperience Platform

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.

3D Printed Optimized Cast

On the heels of designing a lacrosse head with topology optimization I started to think how this technology could be used in healthcare. I saw several instances where casts had been 3D printed for broken bones. What struck me was that the structures were largely aesthetic. I turned to Abaqus, Tosca, Catia and Mimics to
