Altair Simulates Full-Vehicle Crash, Reports Results in Less Than a Day

Dassault Systemes and IBM Expand Global Alliance
Dassault Systèmes (DS) and IBM announced an expansion of their long-standing partnership and highlighted at IBM's IMPACT 2010 event the early deliverables of their Global Alliance, including financing options from IBM Global Financing, a joint competency center, and work on a PLM cloud computing proof of concept. The two companies, which represent the PLM industry's longest running alliance, continue to invest in developing, deploying and supporting client PLM environments. Further results from the alliance signed last month include a DS PLM V6 software cloud computing technical proof of concept presented at the IBM IMPACT 2010 conference this week. The concept illustrates how clients can take advantage of DS software via a range of delivery options, from on-premise solutions, to a cloud powered by IBM software, hardware and services that can help reduce IT complexity and minimize operational costs.

SpaceClaim Integrates KeyShot Photographic Rendering
SpaceClaim, provider of 3D Direct Modeling solutions, announced that Luxion's KeyShot will be integrated with SpaceClaim products. KeyShot is an interactive raytracing and global illumination program that acts like a digital camera and works with any 3D digital data. Engineers worldwide are leveraging SpaceClaim for concept modeling, the optimization of CAE workflows and simulation-driven product development. Often customers will leverage SpaceClaim in the bidding process and in discussions with their clients during the design process to make changes real-time. With KeyShot and SpaceClaim, engineers will be able to take their 3D designs and turn them into photographic images quickly. KeyShot is integrated with SpaceClaim 2009+ SP2.

GibbsCAM Releases New High-Speed-Machining (HSM) for Direct Volumetric Machining of Solid Models
Gibbs and Associates, a Cimatron company, announced GibbsCAM VoluMill Solids, a new option for the high-speed-machining (HSM) of solid models directly within GibbsCAM. The VoluMill Solids option, an incremental enhancement to the GibbsCAM VoluMill Wireframe option, is integrated within GibbsCAM. It allows GibbsCAM users to select solids, surfaces and facet bodies, to generate HSM toolpaths. Typically, traditional roughing toolpaths are generated as parallel offsets (with sharp corners and transitions), which require stops, starts and variable speeds for optimizing motion to reduce tool wear and excessive tool loading. In contrast, VoluMill develops toolpaths optimized for volumetric material removal, based upon desirable material removal rates, by using continuous tangential motion, specialized contour ramping and adaptive feed rates to achieve the highest feeds and speeds possible. By leveling tool load, maintaining constant machine-tool motion and using high-speed-repositioning, the software produces more efficient toolpaths, extends tool life and significantly reduces cycle times. The GibbsCAM VoluMill Solids option provides users the ability to directly machine solid models created in GibbsCAM, SolidWorks, Inventor, CATIA, Pro/ENGINEER Wildfire, Siemens NX, or almost any other CAD system. VoluMill Solids is available immediately for the GibbsCAM 2010 and subsequent releases.
