Revolutionizing Design and Innovation: Highlights from the 3DEXPERIENCE World

Friday, February 16th, 2024

The 3DEXPERIENCE World, a gathering that annually brings together the brightest minds in design and engineering, once again showcased groundbreaking innovations and transformative stories from various industries. This year’s event was no exception, offering a treasure trove of insights into how SOLIDWORKS capabilities are being leveraged to push the boundaries of creativity, efficiency, and problem-solving. Here are some of the standout moments and key takeaways from the event.

A New Horizon: The Narrative of Solidworks CEO, Manish Kumar’s Vision at the 3DEXPERIENCE World

On a stage illuminated by the eager anticipation of innovators, designers, and visionaries, Manish Kumar stood poised to address the gathering at 3DEXPERIENCE World. With a calm demeanor reflective of his profound insights into the future of technology, Kumar embarked on a journey to outline a new horizon for businesses and creators alike.

Manish Kumar, Solidworks, CEO

The auditorium, buzzing with the collective curiosity of its attendees, fell into a hushed silence as Kumar began his narrative. He spoke of a future not far from reach, where businesses transcend the traditional confines of product delivery to offer rich, immersive experiences. This vision, he proposed, was not merely an aspiration but a necessity in the rapidly evolving digital landscape. The essence of adaptation, Kumar emphasized, lay in embracing change and leveraging technological advancements to redefine innovation.

As the narrative unfolded, Kumar introduced the audience to the story of Proteus Motion, a beacon of innovation that embodied the transformative power of the 3DExperience platform. Proteus Motion, with its groundbreaking sports science equipment, had revolutionized athlete training and testing, condensing the capabilities of a full-scale lab into a singular, ingenious device. Kumar detailed how the seamless collaboration, design efficiency, and rapid iteration facilitated by the platform had propelled Proteus Motion to the forefront of its field. This tale of success served not only as a testament to the platform’s capabilities but as an inspiration for the potential within every innovator in the room. (More on the Proteus Motion Story is covered later in this article).

The journey continued with Kumar exploring the uncharted territories of design and innovation shaped by Artificial Intelligence (AI). With vivid examples, he painted a future where AI-driven initiatives, from virtual twins of homes to AI-generated furnishing proposals, streamline the creative process, inspire new ideas, and expedite decision-making. Kumar’s discourse on AI as a catalyst for design excellence highlighted its critical role in navigating the complexities of modern-day innovation.


Unlocking the Future of Additive Manufacturing: An In-Depth Conversation with Chris Robinson of Ansys

Tuesday, September 26th, 2023

As technological innovation continues to redefine industries, additive manufacturing stands out as a transformative force, particularly in product development and manufacturing. Recognizing the crucial role that simulation software plays in mitigating design challenges and expediting development cycles, we reached out to Chris Robinson, Senior Product Manager at Ansys. Robinson provides an insider’s view into how Ansys is revolutionizing engineering simulation in the additive manufacturing landscape, its diverse toolset for tackling complex manufacturing issues, and what the future holds for this burgeoning sector.

Ansys is not just another tech company; it’s a pioneer in engineering simulation. With a global footprint, the company offers an extensive suite of simulation software that enables businesses to design and test their products digitally. “Think about things like mobile devices to cars to airplanes, and frankly, everything in between,” Robinson elaborated. This approach not only minimizes costs but also significantly reduces the time needed for physical prototyping, a benefit Robinson has personally experienced in his career.


Freakonomics take on “How Do You Reopen a Country?”

Sunday, May 3rd, 2020

Listen to this entire Podcast at:

Here are some excerpts:

Steve Dubner recently called up Steve Levitt, his Freakonomics friend and co-author. He’s an economist at the University of Chicago — which, like all schools, has moved to remote teaching.

DUBNER: So, Levitt, how’s your sheltering in place going, generally?

LEVITT: Not too bad. I’m lucky I didn’t lose my job and I’m healthy. I don’t really like people that much in the first place so I don’t mind being isolated. So I know other people are really suffering, but I’ve been super lucky.

DUBNER: So let me ask you this: How useful would you say that economists have been so far during this pandemic?

LEVITT: I think economists didn’t really have a very big role in the beginning and the middle, in the sense that it was really more like a medical issue or a policy issue. But I think on the exit from quarantine, economists can be really important because the tradeoffs we’re talking about here are the kind of tradeoffs that regular people don’t think about very much, like the tradeoff between life and death versus economic activity. I think there’s also just a lot of room for economists here to be sensible guides as we think about what will work and what won’t work.
