Simulating a Cleaner World, From Molecule to Metropolis

3D Perspectives

Engineers are using sophisticated models to clean plastic debris from oceans, optimize airflow in smog-filled cities, and make vehicles lighter and more efficient. trillion pieces of plastic, which lies halfway between Hawaii and California, is roughly twice the size of Texas.

3D Printing — The Work Before the Print

3D Innovations

Not only does a CAD file help save time when figuring out all the finer details of a part by looking at the 3D model, but it also allows a model to be magnified and even rotate on any axis to get a full three-dimensional concept of the part, which allows you a greater sense of the product.

The Importance of 3D Design for (Efficient) Manufacturing

3D Innovations

A CAD file is either a digital 2D or 3D model of your product. Aside from these benefits, using CAD makes it possible to simulate the movement of a part through production processes.” ( Vista Industrial ).

3D CAD Speeds Up Product Development

3D Innovations

Engineers are increasingly using 3D CAD to develop product designs and models, visualizing concepts, exploring new design ideas, and simulating how a design will perform in the real world. So it is not to say that 3D digital design is meant to replace physical prototyping, but it is bringing advantages throughout the design workflow that include computational fluid dynamics (CFD) tools for virtual simulation/testing, using the same data as for physical prototyping.

The Benefits of 3D CAD to the Design Process

3D Innovations

3D CAD is design software used to develop designs and models for 3D objects. Engineers use this type of software to visualize concepts, explore new design ideas and simulate how a design will perform in the real world. Using the 3D digital design throughout the design workflow has many advantages which include using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) for virtual simulation/testing and in conjunction with using the same design data for physical prototyping.
