Solid Edge with Synchronous Technology 2 Announced

Algor Upgrades Simulation Tools
Algor, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Autodesk, is now shipping new functionality with the latest version of Algor simulation software. Algor software now offers expanded modeling and FEA techniques and improved support for multiple CAD software tools. The software's broad range of analysis and simulation tools, paired with Autodesk Inventor, the foundation of the Autodesk solution for Digital Prototyping. The following features in Algor V23.1 expand a range of analysis and simulation capabilities:

  • Improved simulation of multipart assemblies: Users have greater control over how to connect adjacent parts for a wider range of analysis types.
  • Increased efficiency when simulating heat transfer: A new library of common convection data includes properties for air and water over a range of temperatures.
  • Expanded tools for simulating creep: Users have a broader range of tools for testing high stress levels as well as the effects of long-term stress on a part.
  • Improved collaboration in a multi-CAD environment: Users can more easily study designs created using Inventor, Solid Edge and SolidWorks, as well as CAD geometry stored in ACIS, STEP, IGES, and stereolithography files.
PTC Launches Online Resource Specifically For SMBs
PTC launched an online resource designed specifically for the SMB market place. The new site is designed to provide resources on all aspects of product development to both existing and potential PTC customers, giving access to the latest articles, analyst reports and presentations. Business Performance is a gateway to the PTC product development story, featuring the latest articles and reports including white papers, feature articles and webcasts on key business initiatives relevant for small and medium sized companies. Exploring 3D Design is dedicated to the topic of 3D design and featuring a variety of informative papers and multimedia devices. This section covers topics such as “how to cope with the high amount of design changes in an efficient way” or “what to consider when migrating from 2D to 3D”. Also featured are stories written by fellow engineers, promoting best practice for a number of design tasks. For current Pro/ENGINEER users there is a specific area that provides information on available modules, software updates and more. The Resource Center provides features links to a number of external PTC-related forums and communities allowing users to access these and benefit from the large number of networking platforms dedicated to Pro/ENGINEER and other PTC products. The content of the entire SMB Resource Center on is available free of charge.

GibbsCAM Certified by Autodesk for Inventor 2010
Gibbs and Associates, developer of software for programming CNC machine tools and a Cimatron company, announced that GibbsCAM 2009 has been certified for Autodesk Inventor 2010 software under the Autodesk Inventor Certified Applications Program. Certified applications meet certain implementation guidelines and have demonstrated the highest levels of robustness, quality, and interoperability with Autodesk Inventor. GibbsCAM is able to directly read native Autodesk Inventor models and assemblies for process planning and toolpath generation. The Inventor-to-GibbsCAM add-in also allows Autodesk Inventor models and assemblies to be transferred directly from Autodesk Inventor to GibbsCAM. Updates to part geometry and process parameters are easily accommodated by GibbsCAM's full associativity across geometry, processes and toolpaths. For more information, go to
