NAFEMS Benchmark Study...Take Time Now, Save Time & Money Later
Almost all of us who are involved with engineering analysis would agree that up-front simulation can benefit the design process. A recent study by the Aberdeen Group set out to try and prove that this was the case and to quantify it in some way. In this article, Chad Jackson from the Aberdeen Group, USA, summarises some of the principal findings of the study.

INDUSTRY OUTLOOK

Using 3D CAD Data Downstream
As 3D CAD data finds more and more applications outside of design departments, many 3D data formats enter the game, besides the better known 3D CAD formats that use NURBS or Bezier surfaces. For many years, native data conversion using STEP, IGES or native converters was regarded as the corner stone of interoperability. Read more about this development.
