As some of you may have already heard, a few days ago Autodesk acquired PlassoTech which is a very exciting acquisition for us in manufacturing. PlassoTech is a leading supplier of analysis and simulation software for the mechanical design market that will fit nicely into our manufacturing product line.
Currently plans to integrate PlassoTech technology into the Inventor product family will bring many distinct advantages to the Inventor product line, including:
The ability to perform analysis on entire assemblies, as well as individual parts
The ability to perform analysis based on real-world structural and thermal conditions
Advanced-ease-of use and performance superiority with a fully integrated simulation solution
PlassoTech technology allows FEA calculations for things like linear static stress, steady state thermal, thermal stress, modal and frequency analysis, optimization and buckling. If you are looking to do more advanced analysis, PlassoTech technology allows you to test dynamic stress, transient thermal, and large deformation analysis of solid and shell models with various contact conditions.
