Performance Driven Generative Design allows you to explore and validate designs through simulation, make informed decisions on weight reduction and optimized performance. Generate shapes that could not have been imagined using conventional design methods.
Discover how you can benefit from a newfound freedom to take advantage of flexible design processes while benefiting from the seamless alliance between design, simulation and manufacturing. Learn more
DMG MORI and Schaeffler Technologies presented the innovation project “Machine Tool 4.0” as a milestone on the road to future-orientated production, process and maintenance optimization. DMC 80 FD duoBLOCK machines of the innovation project “machine tool 4.0” are nevertheless packed full with intelligent sensors as the basis of condition-oriented service and maintenance.
To achieve this more than 60 sensors have been installed on elementary components of the FD machine. Together with other (obligatory) status information all data are now captured in realtime and analysed using specially developed algorithms. As a result the evaluation of the data provides qualified insights into the probable occurrence of different process and production faults. Learn more
Industry 4.0 and Smart Industry are prompting the emergence of new production methods, new business models and new sectors. What was new a year ago may now be considered outdated. These innovations are all characterized by smart production processes.
Flexibility is another key concept that characterizes these changes in the machining industry. Products with varying specifications are produced at different volumes and with different lead times, in a fully automated process. Besides moving a wider range of products, the products are also cleaned, deburred, turned over or clamped, all within the same system. You’ll see that you and your competition can keep ramping up the efficiency and speed of your manufacturing.
In the Industry 4.0 era, your machines will be capable of seamless communication with automation solutions, and will continuously report their status. This applies to both the short term (“What am I producing now?”) and the long term (“Which components are showing signs of wear?”). In brief, the result is a highly streamlined, predictable and therefore more profitable manufacturing process. Learn more
Generative design is a design exploration process. Designers or engineers input design goals into the generative design software, along with parameters such as performance or spatial requirements, materials, manufacturing methods, and cost constraints. The software explores all the possible permutations of a solution, quickly generating design alternatives. It tests and learns from each iteration what works and what doesn’t.
Quickly generate high-performing design alternatives—many that you’d never think of on your own—from a single idea. With generative design, there is no single solution; instead, there are multiple great solutions. You choose the design that best fits your needs. Learn more
Product Data Management (PDM) products manage and synchronize your design data across your entire enterprise with a single, easily deployable solution tightly integrated with all SOLIDWORKS applications. By leveraging a secure vault, you can extend the access to your 3D design environment and associated files, for all participants from engineering through manufacturing. This enables everyone involved in your projects to share information and collaborate on designs, while automatically protecting your intellectual property with the automated version and revision control systems.
SOLIDWORKS PDM allows CAD designers to focus on innovation while the PDM system take care of the structure of the project. Learn more
Fusion 360 makes a comprehensive set of tools available to the user. Aside from the standard modeling tools, Fusion 360 also includes environments for creating surfaces and sheet metal parts. When it comes time for testing, there’s a simulation environment with features such as static stress and thermal analysis. The manufacturing side of things is rounded out by a robust set of aids for computer aided manufacturing (CAM).
A suite of tools for rendering—creating animations, renderings and drawings—rounds out the toolbox, ensuring that nearly every aspect of design is covered.
It’s hard to find another product that has as many capabilities integrated as tightly as Fusion 360 has. All these tools are right in the program.
Fusion 360 is a great design tool that should be considered if you’re looking for a primary design software or as a supplementary program to an existing design tool. The vast collection of tools and ease of sharing data can go a long way to streamlining the design process. Learn more
