ElectroFlo’s applications range from consumer electronics to automotive, like the Bussed Electrical Center (BEC) shown here

Michigan-based TES International is the latest simulation software company to be acquired by Altair, with its high power-density application electronics cooling package, ElectroFlo, CFD software the pick of its tools.

TES was founded in 1994 to service the electronics cooling market, and produces cross-industry software solutions for thermal design and packaging, custom programming, general heat transfer, stress and vibration analysis, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD).

“ElectroFlo is a great extension to our thermal simulation portfolio,” said Altair CTO Dr. Uwe Schramm. “There is a lot of synergy with AcuSolve 3D CFD which has been widely used for thermal management in a multitude of use cases.

For anyone investigating the world of advanced manufacturing materials, the world of 3D printing powders for Selected Laser Melting (SLM) will be of great curiosity - with quality of parts directly impacted.

Producers of SLM powders, LPW, has launched an in-depth guide and research study, including 14 case studies that cover everything from powder degradation, flow after recycling, laser diffraction and even the evolution of oxygen within powders.

It’s in-depth, educational, and it might just adjust your thinking about what you’re throwing into you additive manufacturing workflow.

If you’re at the top of your rendering and visualisation game, chances are you’ve come across HDR Light Studio - one of the finest solutions out there for creating and editing your own HDR environments for today’s rendering systems. Well, the good news is that there’s a new release. The team has dropped the numerical release and is instead going with codenames - so welcome, HDR Light Studio - Carbon.

Perhaps the biggest update for this release flips the existing idea of having a rendered built into the application to guess what your edits will look like in the final render, instead bringing your renderer of choice into the HDR Light Studio environment. At present, this works with V-Ray, Corona, Arnold, Redshift if you’re using 3ds Max, while Maya uses can use the V-Ray, Arnold, Octane, Redshift or RenderMan rendered directly. This means you’ll have a much better understanding of how your scene will look when you switch to your workhorse rendering system, rather than relying on an approximation.
