What’s The Flight Path for Additive Manufacturing?

As a mechanical engineer and licensed pilot, Bill Bihlman found the perfect first job at Beech Aircraft after graduate school. “My passion was always aviation,” he says. “My work gave me access to time in the air.” Yet he soon realized that although he liked engineering, he wanted to expand his horizons further. “Engineering is the quarterback of the field, but there’re other elements that make for smart business strategy and a sound product,” he points out. “So I went back to business school, worked for several firms, then went into consulting—where I combine engineering insight and acumen with business principles.” Bihlman formed his own company, Aerolytics, LLC, in 2012, to help aerospace companies with decisions that impact design, material selection and supply chain structure. Advising clients about different production processes, he has gained significant perspective about the potential—and the challenges—of additive manufacturing (AM). He is also currently honing his expertise

Dassault Systèmes and Airbus Group Extend Collaboration to Additive Manufacturing

3DEXPERIENCE Platform at the Core of Aircraft Programs Integrating Design, Simulation and Production VÉLIZY-VILLACOUBLAY, France — June 9, 2016 — Dassault Systèmes (Euronext Paris: #13065, DSY.PA), the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, world leader in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, today announced that Airbus Group, after a two-year comprehensive benchmarking process, is extending its use of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform to its additive manufacturing programs integrating design, simulation and production. Airbus Group will deploy Dassault Systèmes’ collaborative design and simulation applications as part of the “Co-Design to Target” industry solution experience, for the additive manufacturing of tooling, prototyping and parts for test flights and for production use on commercial aircraft. This provides Airbus Group with digital continuity to optimize its conceptual designs by virtually validating each phase of the additive manufacturing process. Leveraging Dassault Systèmes’ applications and its own leadership and engineering expertise in additive

Airbus Group Enhances Their 3D Design Capabilities With Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

3D design software manufacturer Dassault Systèmes has long been known for their SOLIDWORKS software, a platform so big and far-reaching it has its ownthree-day conference dedicated to it. Their 3DEXPERIENCE platform, however, is no small potatoes. As companies integrate 3D printing more and more into their day-to-day business, 3DEXPERIENCE promises to help them every step of the way, from marketing to engineering. Dassault Systèmes made a big impact with 3DEXPERIENCE at CES 2016 in January, and several major organizations have adopted the platform for a wide range of applications from consumer electronics to defense. The latest company to leverage 3DEXPERIENCE is the Airbus Group, who has been all over the headlines lately, what with their official unveiling of their 3D printed UAV this week and their recent patent application that could theoretically lead to the 3D printing of entire airplanes. After a two-year benchmarking process, the Airbus Group is extending their use

Exemplar e Visual Collaboration annunciano VCollab 3D PDF

Exemplar e Visual Collaboration Technologies annunciano la possibilità di esportare in formato interattivo 3D PDF da VCollab; software leader per la compressione, archiviazione e visualizzazione collaborativa dei dati CAE. VCollab oltre ad esportare il modello CAE 3D, e’ in grado di salvare in formato 3D PDF i risultati dell’analisi come le deformazioni o gli stress. Inoltre anche il CAE Bill of Material (BOM) puo’ essere estratto dal modello fem in modo da permettere una migliore comprensione dei risultati ottenuti e l’eventuale confronto con i dati contenuti nei sistemi PDM/PLM. Questa funzionalita’ permette agli analisti CAE di condividere e distribuire il frutto del loro lavoro ai colleghi o ai fornitori in modo efficace ed immediato. I principali formati supportati da VCollab sono: ANSYS, NASTRAN, Dassault Systemes, ABAQUS, LS DYNA, FLUENT, STAR-CCM+, CFX, fe-safe, nCODE e altri.
