Sharpen the saw - Simufact Additive - Cost Estimation

In the light of Hexagon’s future vision of Smarter Factories, cost effectiveness is the biggest driver for manufacturers. With growing competition, limited resources and environmental awareness, businesses are challenged to maintain and increase healthy revenues and reduce risk. Hexagon’s Manufacturing Intelligence plays a key part to help manufacturers to achieve this with its MSC Software […]

Token Usage Monitor

It's a common problem. You want to run an analysis or open your CAE software but there are no licenses available for it. Who is using them? This becomes even more difficult when working from home and you can't quickly yell across the open plan office floor. Fortunately, we have an easy solution for you.

Targeting a Specific y+ Value for your Turbulent Flow CFD Simulation (Part 3)

This blog is a bit overdue considering that the last blog on this topic was published at the end of 2019 and we are almost a quarter of the way through this year. If you have forgotten what was discussed in Part 1 and Part 2, here is a quick recap of the main topics […]

How to reduce your MNF file size by up to 97%

Flex bodies in Adams are very powerful and if used correctly, could mean the difference between a right and wrong answer. One of the most popular ways to create a flex body in Adams is to create an MNF (Modal Neutral File) with your FEA (Finite Element Analysis) package and import that file into Adams. […]

Detailed Gears in Adams View

This post will focus on the creation of a detailed spur gear set in Adams View. A previous blog showed how to create a fixed mathematical representation of a gear set between two joints, but what if you want to see more detail relating to the gear interaction itself, like backlash? For this we will […]

Targeting a Specific y+ Value for your Turbulent Flow CFD Simulation (Part 2)

This blog post is a follow up to a previous blog post (Part 1).  In the first blog post the following topics were discussed: What is a y+ value? Laminar vs turbulent flow. How to determine if your flow is laminar or turbulent? Introduction to wall functions. In this blog we will go into more […]

What’s New in Cradle V2020

The new suite of Cradle’s CFD products have been released on 15 November 2019 and it comes equipped with a range of new feature. The Cradle suite of products include the following: scFlow scStream scPost If you are familiar with the Cradle suite of products you might ask what has happened to scTeta? It is […]

Electric Motor in Adams View

In this blog I will show you how simple it is to insert an electrical motor into an Adams View model. Let's use an example of a cordless drill. You can access the Motor interface from the Machinery tab in Adams View as shown below: This will open up the Create Motor window: You start […]

Couplers as gears in Adams View

The saying goes: “There are many ways to skin a cat”. However, this sounds a bit cruel, so lets change the saying to: “There are many ways to represent gears in Adams View”. This article will show you just a couple of ways to model gears in Adams View, from using to couplings for a […]

Targeting a Specific y+ Value for your Turbulent Flow CFD Simulation (Part 1)

The topic of targeting a specific y+ value for a turbulent flow simulation is a very important topic. There is however a bit of groundwork that needs to be done before being able to build a mesh to target a specific y+ value. In this first part we will focus mainly on the following topics: […]
