ATCx Simulate at the Speed of Design 2024

Looking to Cut Down Development Time and Lower Costs for Your Next Product?

By leveraging CAE, FEA simulation technologies early in the development process, you can expedite the creation of high-performance, profitable products. However, we also understand the challenges you may face selecting the right simulation solution and implementing it effectively, especially with limited resources.

If you are a SMB/SME organisation, contemplating implementing simulation (CAE, FEA) for the first time, or facing issues with speed and accuracy while using CAD embedded simulation tools, or looking to delve into multi-physics analysis, here is a collection of presentation recordings from the ATCx Simulate at the Speed of Design - Virtual Event that took place on May 16, 2024. Watch the recordings and discover how Small and Medium (SMB/SME ) industries around the world use Altair's Simulation-driven Design and Manufacturing.

Here are highlights from the past Simulate at the Speed of Design” events of 20232021 and 2020

Track 1: Simulation Starters


A session designed for those who do not currently use simulation technologies, are outsourcing most/all of their analysis, or still use limited CAD embedded simulation tools. Here you can understand the benefits of the technologies from companies that have recently implemented simulation using Altair SimSolid; and through interactive sessions, experience how easy it is to get started, even with limited resources or on the Cloud.

Track 4: Manufacturing Simulation

With a SDFM approach, product designers can be confident in their chosen manufacturing method because design flaws can be detected much earlier and corrected before any physical prototyping has to be done. In this session find out how to plan for the manufacturing process and understand critical parameters, Defects and issues, and challenges. Also, ideas of enhancing your manufacturing process, targeting, improved Yield, optimal energy, lowering wastage, improving tool life, and enhancing production quality for Forming/Stamping and Casting.
