January 29, 2019 - Manufacturing is changing with the advent of new materials and production methods, making it more challenging than ever before to ensure that as-manufactured parts match the as-designed shape. In the latest release of Simcenter 3D, Siemens PLM Software introduces new simulation capabilities, stronger connections to the broader Simcenter portfolio and an expansion of the integrated multi-disciplinary environment to cover an extended simulation solution footprint. The simulation solution has also been updated to include simulation of the additive manufacturing process and to cover areas such as transmission simulation, aerostructure margin of safety analysis and fluid-structure interaction.
Simcenter 3D can now automate the creation and simulation of transmission simulation models within a single, integrated environment. The latest release of Simcenter 3D offers new ties to the digital thread through synergies with the Simcenter portfolio. New connections between Simcenter 3D and Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software enable aero-acoustics and aero-vibro-acoustic simulations, allowing customers to eliminate the source of unwanted noise for cabin comfort. Simcenter 3D can also connect with the routing application within NX software to obtain electrical cord layouts and connection points. Simcenter 3D can then simulate electrical cord deformation within moving assemblies so engineers can make sure wire harnesses don’t get caught on moving parts and adjust as needed to cord routing.
Other new features of Simcenter 3D 2019.1 include:
- Simcenter 3D Aerostructures can now streamline the end-to-end aircraft structural analysis and margin of safety process by up to 30 percent.
- Topology Optimization is now more robust, easier to use, and adds design objectives or constraints for structural integrity of a part when subjected to critical loads.‚ÄØ
- An additive manufacturing process simulation tool helps manufacturers achieve a quality print that matches the desired shape on the first try.
