Guide to Consumer Electronics Design and Packaging
To get a beautifully designed electronic product safely delivered to your customer, the work must start at the product design phase. Leveraging simulation-driven design, manufacturers are gaining greater insight and control over the development of innovative products, consistent manufacturing processes, and cost-effective, sustainable packaging.
GPU-Accelerated Architectural Visualization with Denoising
Photorealistic rendering has become a cornerstone for architectural visualization. Altair’s developers have collaborated with NVIDIA to leverage NVIDIA OptiX™ denoising technology to maximize the speed-up without compromising quality for both exterior and interior rendering scenes. We'll walk through some of the most recent benchmarks of Altair Thea Render™, showing performance gain on NVIDIA RTX hardware.
Altair Inspire Studio - Manufacturing Drawings
The latest release of Altair Inspire Studio introduces a powerful set of capabilities to create detailed 2D drawings of complex 3D models and assemblies from multiple perspectives. Functionalities include one-click view creation, section and detail views, linear, angular, radial, and ordinate dimensions, as well as annotations. Once completed, drawings can be easily exported and printed.
Altair Inspire Studio - Design Tables
The latest release of Altair Inspire Studio introduces a new, quick, and easy way to explore design variations. Create design iterations on the fly using a design table. Quickly modify and set thresholds for the various parameters of a model, without having to dig through construction history. The entire model, including the design variables, can be exported to Altair HyperStudy to explore and evaluate different design alternatives.
ATCx CFD 2020 - Solving the Design Paradox
Full evaluation of a design concept requires the definition of many complex details. However, complex geometric details constrain design flexibility. Think of the value of a complex model defined in a way that both details and basic design elements can be changed in seconds. The new suite of parametric free-form surface and solid shape parameters in the 2020 release of Inspire Studio make it possible to explore and analyze broad ranges of a design space. The presentation was part of the ATCx CFD 2020, presented by Paul Stewart, VP, Automotive Aerodynamics Modeling and Visualization at Altair
Design components exposed to high cycle loads
Altair HyperLife is an easy to learn fatigue analysis software developed in a solver-neutral framework. It provides a comprehensive set of tools for fatigue analysis, with direct interfaces to all major FEA result files. With an integrated material library, HyperLife enables the prediction of fatigue life under repetitive loads that occur in a variety of industrial applications. In this webinar, you learnt how Altair HyperLife can seamlessly be integrated in a development process from multibody dynamic load extraction over structural topology optimization and redesign to a detailed fatigue analysis. The results are used in Altair Inspire Studio to create high quality renderings for presentations.
