Design Meets Simulation in the Continuous Journey for Lightweight Optimized Design
In today’s increasingly competitive market, product designers must push past conventional ways of working. Innovating one concept at a time is no longer a sustainable method. And for the many industries where lightweighting has become an imperative, lightweight technology and simulation methods are now essential to efficiently drive product design optimized for performance while meeting customer demand for a reduction in energy and material requirements.
Watch this webinar on lightweight engineering and learn about CATIA technologies that Boeing, Airbus and others are using to find the right balance in reducing weight, cost and material usage while maintaining or increasing strength, stability and safety.
Functional Generative Design
CATIA Function-Driven Generative Designer enables non-specialists to automatically generate optimized conceptual parts from a functional specification at the push of a button. Functional specification for this science-based generative design approach also uses key performance indicators, such as minimize mass and maximize stiffness.
By varying inputs, designers are able to generate multiple part variations to compare and analyze. Then, manufacturing wizards help users detail design concepts based on the manufacturing process selected to produce the part: milling, casting, or additive manufacturing.
