I had a really great time designing the Metal 3D printed shift knob from my previous blog post. I was curious what the other benefits of the knob may be besides being cool to look at and show off. What better way than to use the simulation software that we use here at PADT every […]
If you are an ANSYS RSM (Remote Solve Manager) user, you’ll find some changes in version 18.0. Most of the changes, which are improvements to the installation and configuration process, are under the hood from a user standpoint.

We have great customers. The kind of cusomers that call up and ask “Hey, what do you think about having a Tesla test drive event for PADt employees” Duh. Yes. Please provide contact information.

Cutting corners rarely pays off, and that is especially true in product development when you skimp on physical or virtual prototyping. In “Why accurate prototypes are important to product development success” I take a look at why accurate prototyping is so important, with some real world lesson learned as examples.
It’s all the rage. “Big Data!” fixes everything. There is a lot of hype around the value of knowing so much about so many things. The problem is very few people have figured out what to do with that data. But leading technology companies like GE are using a proven tool to get value from […]
