Autodesk Acquires Technology For ECAD

LMS Introduces Fuel Cell System Simulation
LMS introduced its latest fuel cell system simulation solution based on LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim at the Fuel Cell Seminar & Exposition 2008. Addressing one of the hottest topics in the automotive industry at the moment, the LMS Imagine.Lab Fuel Cells solution helps fuel cell manufacturers design and optimize fuel cell stacks and systems via a one-dimension modeling environment. With LMS Imagine.Lab Fuel Cells, users can size components, optimize architecture and geometries, and develop and test control strategies. In addition, electrochemical researchers can opt to integrate and test different gas mixtures and material solutions, and predict real-life reactions like voltage and transient temperature evolution, pressure and mass flow rates for the entire system. LMS Imagine.Lab Fuel Cells uses validated physical modeling, based on an energy exchange approach where basic elements can be easily assembled to represent a complete fuel cell system. Researcher and development can easily “try out” the performance traits of a complete system, reviewing both static and dynamic behavior. LMS Imagine.Lab Fuel Cells comes with all the tools and multi-disciplinary libraries to build, analyze and optimize a functional digital fuel cell mock-up.

robotmech Acquires Materialise’ e-Stage Software for Automated Support Generation
robotmech Rapid Prototyping GmbH has been using software solutions from Materialise NV for several years. robotmech recently acquired Materialise’ e-Stage software for automated support generation. e-Stage automates the work preparation process, eliminating all manual editing, and also helps save on resin, finishing time and build time. The e-Stage software not only automates prep work, eliminating the need for processing the support structures manually, it also enhances the manufacturing process. Its excellent support structures guarantee shorter production times and lower resin consumption. e-Stage offers the added benefit of reduced time spent on the overall project. The supported model can be removed more efficiently from the platform and the support structures can be removed more quickly and easily from the model. Both save a lot of time. The unique new connection between the supports and the component substantially cuts the time required for model post-processing.

Automotive Design Studios Visualize Auto Racing in 2025
Today's race cars have ground-breaking technology to improve speed, power, performance and safety but what a difference 17 years into the future can make. Imagine race cars that go beyond the expectations and challenges of racing today, such as never needing to stop for re-fueling or collision avoidance assistance technology for enhanced safety. Nine of Southern California's automotive design studios did just that, predicting how auto racing will change by the year 2025. The designs are part of the fifth annual Los Angeles Auto Show's Design Challenge, where studios including Audi, BMW, GM, Honda, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and Volkswagen are pitted against each other to showcase their talents and further explore new ideas in automotive design. Entries will be judged by Tom Matano of San Francisco's Academy of Art University, Imre Molner of Detroit's College for Creative Studies and Stewart Reed of Pasadena's Art Center College of Design. Daniel Simon, an established car designer and founder of Cosmic Motors, is the special guest judge this year. Simon began his design career at Volkswagen and recently published his first book: Cosmic Motors-Spaceships, Cars and Pilots of Another Galaxy. The winning design will be announced at the Design Los Angeles conference Nov. 20 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.
