  • Industrial Design: Is all industrial design software the same?
    Alias used to be the one real choice for industrial-design software. Today there are many. Besides Alias ($25,000), good packages include Rhino ($895), ICEM ($2,300 and up), NX (a lot, depending on what bundle you pick), and even SolidWorks ($3,995). So besides price, how do you decide? The only
  • FE Update: Making Analysis a design feature
    and FEA vendors. For example, some CAD vendors are bundling DesignCheck, a version of our software for first-pass stress analysis, with their CAD programs. FEA lets engineers digitally test and predict real-world behavior of designs. Having FEA in a CAD package makes it easier to discover
  • Custom Harley parts go 3D
    these methods to a 3D CAD and CAM package that work together. , Concord, Mass., provided the design software. , Windsor, Ontario, furnished the manufacturing software, FeatureCAM. "Our 2D system couldn't handle increasingly complex designs, such as a recent prototype shift drum. And it was taking me
  • Midrange CAM assists advanced machining
    SolidCAM embeds in SolidWorks to create an integrated CAD/CAM system. Mill-turn machining of a mechanical part done in SolidCAM. Simultaneous five-axis machining of an aerospace component done in SolidCAM. Together, they provide an associative design and NC package aimed at the midrange
  • Workgroup PLM now ready for bigger jobs
    across design, engineering, sourcing, sales, marketing, field services, suppliers, and customers, regardless of product-development tools. For example, engineers can use the PLM software to manage CAD data and change processes. Marketing people can use it to access designs and specifications
  • NC software runs in solid modeler
    . A users runs a five-axis milling simulation in SolidCAM. Details for the machining scenario appears on the left. Together, they make a handy associative design and NC package. SolidWorks lets users design parts, import geometry, and manage data, while SolidCAM provides an easy-touse, modestly
  • Making room to innovate
    arterial blood- pressure monitor. Built-in 3D sheet-metal design capabilities, a feature of many CAD packages, let Modular Services Co. quickly build its portable cart for intensive-care-unit and operating-room pumps. Companies developing medical devices -- whether for diagnostics, prosthetics
  • CAD includes solids, surfaces, and wire-frame tools
    for SolidWorks, Catia V4 and V5, Pro/E, and UGS. An unlimited number of levels let users pinpoint every part in an assembly. Sheet-metal functions in KeyCreator allow applying K factors to particular bends and not to others. V4 is an economical, easy-to-master package that sports an extensive
