As Seen In Automotive Design & Production

This screenshot from Autodesk Moldflow 2017 shows that the larger gas bubble sizes in microcellular injection molding with coreback (right) provide significant weight savings over the smaller bubbles in microcellular molding without coreback (left).

Simulating Injection Molding Gets Even Better
New injection molding software can simulate—and analyze.

CAM: Getting Better and Going Cloud
Acquisitions haven’t stopped two CAM vendors from advancing their software. In fact, the acquisitions have also helped put CAM into the cloud.

Reducing Programming Time with CAMWorksXpress
The CAMWorksXpress 2.5D software package from Geometric accelerates computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) programming time by providing automation tools like feature-based machining.  CNC code can be generated with a few clicks. The package has the capability to increase machining productivity with optimized toolpaths.

The Green Guide
Flame Treatment Technology a Green Move for GM; A Cleaner Cleaner; Freudenberg's “Simple” Devices May Make Big Differences in Battery Systems; SolidWorks “Sustainability” Offers Real-Time Green Solutions; Siemens’ “Ctrl-Energy” Monitors Machine Tool Energy Use

PLM Behind The Scenes
Must product life-cycle management (PLM) systems be up front and center? No. But by being there it can add assistance for collaboration and design.

Simulation Makes Vehicles Real
Advances in simulation software include integration with other CAx systems, simulations of more domains, and stunning virtual reality.

Building An Ambulance
Ambulance manufacturing is as much about design, engineering and technology as it is durability and functionality.

Tracking the MCAD Enhancements
A few hundred enhancements to a single software application? For some Applications, that number suggests a questionable software release. In mechanical computer-aided design (MCAD), that number is an embarrassment of riches—for users.

Animate Your CAD
In two hours or less, you can create fairly sophisticated animations from your CAD system's solid models so that people who know nothing more than how to use Microsoft Word and PowerPoint on their Windows-based computers can better understand a part or assembly design
