Products can be lighter and better through the application of topology optimization. However, they might look somewhat different. . .

Analysis of CFD: analysis of analysis? These researchers have developed the way by which exact parameters describing how disturbance dissipates in the flow and determined requirement that empirical turbulence models must satisfy.

Using virtual reality to design cars is not a new thing. But using “mixed” reality—and even wearing a VR headset while driving—goes to another place, entirely—physically and metaphysically.
Gravity Sketch is a 3D virtual reality tool that allows designers to go directly to 3D modeling, with gestures taking the place of a stylus and tablet. Ford designers find the Co-Creation feature particularly useful, as this allows designers in studios around the world to be able to interact with the “same” 3D model.
The latest wave of manufacturing execution systems takes advantage of the Internet of Things, leading to simpler and faster implementations and truly real-time data analysis, decision-making, and problem resolution.
Improvements to the 2019 versions of CAM software go well beyond user interface/experience enhancements, even though the changes might seem small.
