Dassault Systèmes Acquiring Elsys for Electrical PLM

Geometric Releases CAMWorks 2012
Geometric Limited released its solids-based CNC programming solution, CAMWorks 2012, with support for SolidWorks 2012, as well as improvements to enable faster and easier programming, and to produce more efficient tool paths for improved machining productivity.

Some of the improvements in functionality and ease-of-use in CAMWorks 2012 include:

With support for SolidWorks 2012, feature recognition performance and recognition improvements include:

  • Version 4.0 of VoluMill with the new Non-Concentric Milling technology reduces cutting-tool loads, and evacuates chips more effectively, thereby increasing the tool life
  • Reduction in the time taken to save the files containing a large number of tool path moves
  • Ability to add new tools into the TechDB from within CAMWorks
  • Shaded display of Contain and Avoid areas
  • Turn roughing operations now support user defined inserts

IronCAD and NEi Software Announce “NEi Nastran for IronCAD”  
IronCAD, LLC and NEi Software announced the availability of NEi Nastran for IronCAD, a finite element analysis solution designed to run inside of the user interfaces of IRONCAD and INOVATE. With NEi Nastran for IronCAD, product design teams can perform FEA pre-processing, analysis and post-processing within the same associative design environment to provide engineers the flexibility to test product designs before manufacturing. IronCAD registered users will be able to download and install the “NEi Nastran for IronCAD” that will enable users to run and explore the following capabilities as a fully functional node-limited version within IRONCAD and INOVATE:

  • Linear Static and Steady-State Heat Transfer
  • Normal Modes, Buckling, Composites, and Prestress 
  • Advanced Dynamics (Transient Response, Frequency Response) 
  • Nonlinear Analysis (Nonlinear Static and Transient Response) 
  • Nonlinear Transient Heat Transfer (Static and Transient) 

STAR-CCM+ v6.06: Faster, Better, and Wider  
STAR-CCM+ v6.06 ensures higher throughput and offers:

  • Faster turnaround times: support of parallel I/O file systems, new sparse solver for electrical solutions, quicker polyhedral meshing, and new CAD reading technology. 
  • Better application coverage: improved process for Li-ion batteries simulation, new physical models for Eulerian multiphase flow and LES combustion.
  • Wider multidisciplinary solution: simulation of electromagnetics and electrical fields, and import of SPEED models for flow and thermal analyses of electrical devices

Improvements to the product include:

  •  Optimizing License Resources
  • New and Improved Tutorials
  • Geometry Preparation and Surface Meshing
  • CAD Clients
  • Geometry Import
  • 3D- CAD
  • Engineering Physics
    • SPEED Integration

TransMagic Ships R9 with Metadata Extraction to XML  
TransMagic unveiled TransMagic (R9), a solution to maintain 3D data integrity across business applications. The focus of R9 is on usability enhancements, quickly finding and repairing errors in the geometry, and customizing workflow. In this release, TransMagic delivers support for updated CAD versions along with customer requested enhancements, including metadata output, point mesh creation and XL-64 high-speed processing. R9 offers a new and improved PMI++ option to identify metadata stored in a model and output it in XML. The XML output can be stored, viewed or utilized by other software applications making it an ideal tool for integration with business systems. PMI++ supports product manufacturing information (PMI, aka FTA, GD&T), assembly hierarchy, part names and other metadata stored in a model. Models can also be converted to a polygon point mesh which can protect intellectual property. TransMagic R9 offers updated bidirectional support for CATIA V5 R21, Parasolid V24 and ACIS R22, in addition to support for all major 3D CAD formats including SolidWorks, NX, Creo Elements, Inventor and more. TransMagic Repair tools enable the highest data exchange fidelity on the market today. The enhanced Auto Repair Wizard now provides better visibility on problem geometry so errors can be resolved with advanced tools such as MagicSurface.
