Years ago, finite element analysis (FEA) was prohibitively expensive, required expert training, and delivered dangerously flawed results. Is simulation more accessible now? In this guest post, Tony Abbey, FRAeS, an engineer and consultant who’s devoted his long career to FEA, answers “Yes,” but with one rather large, important caveat.
PTC invites you to share your insight at LiveWorx, a global technology conference and marketplace held in Boston June 17-20, 2018. The call for presenters and content is now open. Submit your idea today.
If you use Creo Simulate and Creo Flexible Modeling Extension (FMX), now you can simulate and optimize your design all in one place. This post shows how the new integration, introduced in Creo 4, with Creo Simulate and Creo FMX works.
This was one of my old posts from 2010. I am only re-posting it so it does not get lost forever. Fast forward to today, how well did PTC do? I think they have hit the mark on most of their goals since that epic roll out. What say you?
When you inspect a part using Creo Simulate, you can view your results in multiple windows. To inspect the model, you have to rotate the geometry in each individual window. In Creo 4, you can tie together results windows--synchronizing the geometry in all windows. That way, when you spin or zoom in one window, all of the others follow.
This PTC Creo 3.0 tutorial will show how to animate the assembly of ‘Bolt and Nut’ using the Creo Mechanism application. This application is used to move and analyze the motion of a Mechanism. First we will place the Bolt part in assembly and assemble it at default location. Next we will place the Bolt part and a pre-defined constraint set ‘Cylinder’ will be applied which provides two axis joints, Translation and Rotation. Later we will apply two Servo Motors on both axis to run the Nut over the Bolt like a screw mechanism. The Pitch used in creating the Bolt and Nut is 0.05 (1/20) inch. That is why one servo motor will run at a velocity of 360°/second that will provide rotating motion and second servo motor will run at a velocity of 0.05 inch/second which will provide translation motion. When we run the Dynamic Analysis for 20 seconds the Nut will travel 1 inch distance over the Bolt. By watching this tutorial viewers will observe as well as learn the following tools/commands of the software:-- 1. Placing components in assembly. 2. Applying component references to fully constrained components 3. Using pre-defined constraint set which are used for creating mechanism. 4. Using Creo Mechanism Application. 5. Inserting Servo Motor. 6. Dynamic Analysis of Mechanism. 7. Using Playback command which is used to replay the previously run analysis.
Area turning parameter contains the LEAD_RADIUS option in the entry exit list but it can not be used except for the profile motion.LEAD_RADIUSThe radius of the tangential circular movement of the tool when leading in or out. Used when creating Lead In and Lead Out Tool Motions, and
