Generative Design insights: shifting the paradigm in 3D metal printing

In our first blog of this series “Generative Design insights: a game changer for product development and industrial 3D printing” we already gave an overview of generative design and additive manufacturing. In the following articles, we would now like to examine some aspects in more detail. Given global trends towards resource scarcity and reducing use …


Debunking the 5 myths of multi-body Dynamics – Myth 1: MBD simulation is motion analysis

In this blog series we are debunking 5 myths of multi-body dynamics. In this first blog, we address the myth that MBD simulation is motion analysis. Multibody Dynamics (MBD) simulation stretches far beyond merely simulating the motion of constrained mechanisms. It lays the foundation for collaborative systems development and serves as a basis for various …
