IoT Is Changing Design. Here’s What You Can Do About It

The Internet is changing product development in ways many of us never dreamed of just a few years ago. “Products have become complex systems that combine hardware, sensors, data storage, microprocessors, software, and connectivity in myriad ways,” writes Michael E. Porter, Bishop Lawrence University Professor at Harvard University in a recent Harvard Business Review article.

A Crystal Ball for Design & the Predictive Nature of Simulation

Ever since we started to move away from the drawing board and the vellum, ink, razor blade combo (remember those days? Just me? No? I’ll crack on then), we, as a collective of designers, engineers and manufacturers, have been talking about the ability to do more with our digital design tools than pure documentation.

The rise of 3D modelling tools made further promises in this regard. After all, if you have a 3D model, you should be able to do more with it than purely document the shape of an object. Right? Abso-bloody-lutely.

Jamison Pezdek: PTC Live Global “Better than Video”

While video demos are a great way to show new, complex software products, Jamison Pezdek, mechanical engineer from Boston-Power, Inc., says that a one-to-one with YouTube lacks something. That’s why he attended PTC Live Global last year.

Explore PTC Creo Simulate: Webcasts and Resources

Design engineers in industries all over the world use PTC Creo Simulate to speed up product development. By integrating simulation into the design process, they optimize their results as they work, so that fewer errors come up as development moves downstream.

Did You Know? Getting Better Results from Your Analyses

In PTC Creo Simulate, you analyze the integrity of your models by indicating values such as constraints, forces, and materials. Then, choose an analysis that you’d like the system to run. Sounds easy, but how do you know if you chose the right analysis or even the right options for your given model? And how do you know your results are accurate?

PTC Creo Simulate can tell you.

RAB Lighting: PLM Without the IT Burden

In a world where appliances last ten years and we replace our phones every two, it’s unusual to run into a company that produces components to last more than a quarter century.

Four Skills You’ll Need to Add in the Internet of Things Age

It wasn’t long ago that an engine that could proactively alert technicians to swap out a failing part or a fridge that posts the weekly shopping list was the stuff of science fiction. Today, these types of offerings are popping up in every industry as manufacturers shift development of smart, connected products into high gear.

Beyond PTC Creo Simulate

We’ve written a lot about PTC Creo Simulate in this blog lately because it’s a great tool for conducting  structural, thermal, and vibration analysis of your 3D CAD models. As an extension of PTC Creo Parametric, it provides a comprehensive set of finite element analysis capabilities. However, it’s not the only simulation or analysis extension available for PTC Creo users.
