Dassault Systemes is continuing to expand its Simulia realistic multi-physics simulation technology portfolio through acquisition of 3rd party software. With this expansion comes added value for customers who are already using Simulia products and are interested in additional capabilities of other software beyond best-in-class ABAQUS capabilities. Companies who currently use ABAQUS know that with Simulia’s Extended Tokens licensing, they already have 3-in-1 access to the Simulia products Abaqus, Tosca and Isight. With the acquisition of Safe Technology’s fe-safe, Dassault Systemes added one more code to the Extended Token product line, making it a 4-in-1 powerhouse. Abaqus 6.14 was released on … Continue reading “Introducing More: Simulias Extended Token Licening”

In today’s computer-aided product development environment, engineers use a multitude and variety of design and simulation tools. Often parameters and results from one software package are used as inputs for the next software that is to be used. Manually inputting this data can lead to: reduced efficiency slow product development human error Isight addresses all of these issues. Isight provides designers, engineers, and researchers with a powerful system for automating computer-aided product development processes, exploring the design space and performing parametric optimization. Isight is an open system for integrating design and simulation models. Isight is used to create flexible simulation … Continue reading “Isight – Improve Product Design with Parametric Optimization”

Companies use ABAQUS and other Dassault Systemes software products every day for a multitude of sophisticated engineering uses. But ABAQUS software is interesting in and of itself. Did you know, for instance, that: 1. Best in class FEA solver ABAQUS has industry leading capabilities in: general contact analysis using non-linear materials (i.e., composites, rubber, soil) large assembly models 2. ABAQUS was created by Dr. David Hibbitt after he founded ABAQUS, Inc. (formerly Hibbitt, Karlsson and Sorensen, Inc.) in 1978. The first parallel version of ABAQUS, version 5.4, was made available to users in 1995. 3. There are more than 100 … Continue reading “Learn 13 Interesting Things about Simulia ABAQUS”

How TOSCA Optimization Software Can Improve Your Product Development Process

Previously, we discussed the importance of selecting the right VAR for providing you with SIMULIA brand products, such as Abaqus, in order to develop products faster and at lower cost. If you are interested in further reducing costs, getting products to market faster, and potentially lowering your warranty liability, consider using Dassault Systemes’ topology optimization software, TOSCA. Product development the “old-fashioned way” is done through a process of building, testing, evaluating and redesigning, and then repeating those 4 steps over and over – until the product looks and performs adequately. This method can be very time consuming and expensive, which … Continue reading “How TOSCA Optimization Software Can Improve Your Product Development Process”
