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

Lacrosse Head Topology Optimization Part 2: Designing for 3D Printing

Topology optimization creates an organic geometry flowing material to where it is needed and eroding where it is not efficient. This technology is ideally suited to the limited manufacturing constraints that 3D printing offers. 3D printed parts by virtue of their layer by layer additive manufacturing approach have complex material properties. These properties are similar to wood where there is a stiff direction (with the grain) and a weak direction (across the grain). To gain the highest performance in 3D printed parts these material properties must be considered in the design process.
