The best practice for companies caught up in the PLM vs ERP debate
The latest from the DEVELOP3D Blog:
Siemens PLM has released STAR-CCM+ v11.06, the first to align with Siemens’ Smart Innovation Portfolio, and introducing new tools for the optimisation of electronics cooling.
Parts such as fans, heatsinks, chips, and boards can be imported from industry-standard IDF files, or created in STAR-CCM+, allowing the Electronics Cooling Toolset (E-Cool) to facilitate the creation and manipulation of the components for thermal performance analysis of board and system level electronics devices.
“This new capability allows engineers to focus their time on making the right decisions for improving the thermal efficiency of their electronics systems,” said Siemens PLM Software senior VP of product management Jean-Claude Ercolanelli.
In an interview with Reuters, General Electric has warned it can build its 3D printing capability without buying SLM Solutions in light of opposition from a 20 per cent shareholder.
The deal, which would see the giant US tech company buy the German metals 3D printing company, combined with a similar deal for Sweden’s Arcam, is one of the biggest in history, valued at $1.4B.
GE CFO Jeff Bornstein, said: “We have options and alternatives,” Bornstein told Reuters in an interview. “We don’t have to do SLM. We’d like to. We like the company, we like the technology, we like the people.”
The in-house materials development team at Formlabs has released the company’s new line of resins, set to simulate real world engineering grade properties with four new materials.
Durable, Tough, and High Temp resins, and an existing Flexible resin, make up the new family of materials as the Form2 machine continues to target professional users.
“We’ve experienced lots of internal ‘aha!’ moments experimenting with these new resins, and one of the most exciting things about the development process is when we’re able to print something on the Form 2 that we couldn’t have created before,” said a spokesperson.

Chinese manufacturer Hangzhou Xiongmai Technology Co Up has recalled nearly 10,000 webcams in the aftermath of a cyber attack that blocked access last week to some of the world’s biggest websites.
Devices such as the CCTV cameras were compromised by hackers and used to perform a denial-of-service (DoS) attack on internet infrastructure provider Dyn, which cut access to websites including PayPal, Spotify and Twitter.
Such attacks harness hundreds of thousands of connected devices globally to flood the targeted servers, forcing them to crash.
