New version of Simufact Additive 2021.1 with new supports and full parametric control

Simufact Additive 2021.1 brings an enormous improvement in support structure generation. The latest version now allows the user to create new support types, such as tree supports, easily and automatically, which can be fully parameterised. You can now create support structures with the parameters you need, or simply create new supports and test them virtually …


In memoriam- Dr. Garret N. Vanderplaats

Here at MSC Software we were saddened by the news recently of the passing of Dr Garret N. Vanderplaats at the age of 77 on 17 November 2021 and we invite you to help us memorialize him by sharing your memories here on LinkedIn. Dr Vanderplaats was a long-term friend and collaborator with MSC Software …


Debunking the 5 myths of Multibody Dynamics – Myth 5: Real-time MBD simulations = Reduced Order Models (ROMs)

A real-time simulation mandates that the virtual model delivers a response/solution output at specific time increments in the same or less time than the physical system. This way, the state of the virtual system is always synchronized with the physical components to provide an accurate testing environment.  For this reason, real-time compliant vehicle dynamics models …


Debunking the 5 myths of Multibody Dynamics – Myth 4: MBD simulations require specialist knowledge

Exploring the behavior of systems using simulation has traditionally been the domain of simulation engineers or analysts. Complexity in simulation interfaces, or in simulation techniques and procedures, created the need for highly specialized users. A lack of standards for model exchange and interoperability compounded these issues. In the field of systems dynamics simulation, MBD analysts …


Debunking the 5 myths of Multibody Dynamics – Myth 3: Multibody Dynamics Simulations is the same as simplified component level representations

In this blog series we are debunking 5 myths of multi-body dynamics. In this thirdblog, we address the myth that Multibody Dynamic Simulation is the same as simplified component level representations. In Multibody Dynamics (MBD) simulations, the most complex part within a mechanism may be represented as a simple link so that its dynamics can …
