Inventor on roids! CAD and Excel have never worked this well together

Gavin Bath gives us all a lesson in awesomeness. YOU HAVE TO SEE THIS AMAZING USE OF iLOGIC and embedded Excel spreadsheets, and how it closes the design loop, providing engineers with real-time feedback on key aspects of their design. (This ain’t your typical spreadsheet link, this thing is brilliant)Continue Reading

Direct Modeling VS. Parametric debate continues

Bill Fane moderated a recent discussion titled “Cad Smackdown – Direct vs. Parametric Modeling”, that, as he put it, was not intended as a debate of one’s benefit over the other, but a realistic discussion of the two paradigms as a whole.  There was very little pitting capabilities of platforms against each other, and didContinue Reading
