Mechanical Design Using Advanced Simulations – A Relationship Of Innovation And Business Growth

Posted by on

The mechanical design faculty has transitioned over the years. While earlier pencil, drawing boards and sheets of drafting paper were your CAD tools, they went on to be replicated and placed neatly in the side bar of your CAD software.

However today, CAD tools are much more than a mere replica of the pen and paper tools.  They are a part of a much bigger set up, where product design and development takes place virtually, across the stages of 3D modeling, simulations, analysis, design iterations and validation.

Advanced Simulation and Computer Aided Engineering for Product Design and Development – Visualization and Manufacturing

Due to advances in computer hardware and software the computational complexities and design barriers have lowered. Effective visualization, higher productivity, better product performance, higher sustainability, smaller foot print and easy manufacturability are the various byproducts of the iterative loop ‘create, test and adapt’ of CFD/FEA capabilities.

Benefits of Product Design and Development using Advanced Simulations

Using advanced simulation tools such as FEA and CFD for analysis and validation of a product design has wide ranging benefits. Some of these include:

  • Shorter design lifecycle, that also drives the speed to market
  • Easy detection and mitigation of design flaws
  • Product development at lower costs
  • More scope for experiments – breeding innovation
  • Detailed documentation of designs
  • Reverse engineer products for better performance (to revive them from decline stage or to develop them in order to race ahead of competitors)

A Relationship of Innovation and Growth

The use of advanced simulations for mechanical design breeds innovation. The conventional prototyping and testing methods consume a lot of time, additionally, if a design change meant to improve performance backfires, then the resulting costs can be too high, this is why the conventional methods leave little scope for designers to experiment. On the contrary, virtual simulations are easy, and a product can be analyzed and validated before an actual prototype is made.

Utilizing CAD/CAE capabilities allows engineers to experiment more and hence encourages innovation. Design innovation in-turn leads to better products and hence business growth. Innovation and business growth thus have a mutually progressive relationship.

Mechanical 3D Modelling is a leading firm providing product development services using CAD/CAE capabilities. The company is an innovative partner to several manufacturers across the globe, delivering uncompromised innovative product design, driving business growth for its clients.
