Geometric releases NestLib 2010 R1
Geometric Limited announced the release of NestLib 2010 R1 with improvements in material utilization for sheet metal punching and inventory management. According to the company, NestLib is one of the most successful nesting software library in the market, focused on optimizing two dimensional packaging. It has been licensed by over 90 independent software vendors and original equipment manufacturers worldwide. The NestLib portfolio consists of a base module and a set of optional advanced modules, each of which provides specialized functionality. This latest release of NestLib incorporates a number of new features, several important fixes and updates, as well as performance improvement measures. Some of the most important additions include:
- Multiple Corner nesting and Inventory Forecasting support with edge matching feature to increase material utilization, and thereby reduce material cost for the wood working industry
- User controls advancements like run time local area selection for every orientation of a part in Common Punch module. This feature will assist punch machine users to control the nesting of a specific part in the entire nested layout
- Nesting reports in PDF format can be directly generated from the NestLib evaluation program. This will allow customers to store the nested reports on their computers for easy reference and sharing
- Inventory Forecasting module that identifies the best sheet size to be used for a given order, can now be used for orders with different part materials and thickness.
NEi Software, a global provider of Nastran Finite Element Analysis (FEA) software, announces the release of NEi Fusion 2.1, a unique combination of FEA Solver and 3D modeler. Nastran FEA solvers and 3D modeler powered by SolidWorks. “We are excited to introduce NEi Fusion 2.1 which employs the same Nastran solvers found in all of our analysis products. NEi Fusion is also unique because of its ability to create a collaborative work environment between designers and analysts. NEi Fusion is perfect for taking simulations to the next level with advanced capabilities such as dynamics and nonlinear analysis,” said Dave Weinberg, CEO of NEi Software. The NEi Fusion 2.1 upgrade includes:
- Automatic Bolt Element Generation for Simulating Bolted Connections
- Spatial Load Variability for Defining Hydrostatic Pressure, Interpolating Results from CFD
- Nonlinear Transient Analysis for Time Varying Nonlinear Events
- Mixed Beam/Shell Meshing for Structures Typically Found in Aerospace, Automotive, and Maritime.
GEOMATE released GrafiCalc Professional 2010 software that enables product development engineers to evaluate, validate, and optimize critical engineering parameters before committing to the final design. GrafiCalc Professional 2010 combines intelligent sketching, automated graphical calculations, backsolving, motion simulation, and transient data acquisition technologies in one application. With GrafiCalc Professional 2010 users can solve a wide range of design challenges in the early stages of product development when ideas are fresh and conflicts are easier to detect and less expensive to fix. Smart engineers are realizing that decisions made during the early stages of design have the maximum impact on the final cost and performance of any product. GrafiCalc Professional 2010 is a Windows standard application that can be used standalone as well as in conjunction with Microsoft Office and all popular CAD applications. Price is $499.
