Simcenter can now help maximise antenna and sensor performance and address electromagnetic interference

The latest version of Siemens Digital Industries Software’s Simcenter 3D software features some major enhancements for low- and high-frequency electromagnetic solutions to help accelerate their simulation processes.

Increased multidisciplinary integration capabilities, faster CAE process, openness and scalability are additional upgrades in what looks like a move to add greater capabilities to the software to allow it to integrate with what Siemens calls its ‘digital thread’.

With more electronics included in products, it’s becoming even more important for engineers to understand how electromagnetic performance can potentially affect products, with Simcenter 3D looking to take the lead on electromagnetic simulation and streamline multi-physics workflows between electromagnetic and other physical simulations.

Recycled coffee beans are being used to create a new fabric yarn with some interesting properties you perhaps wouldn’t expect while downing your fifth Monday morning espresso.

The basis of footwear start-up Rens’ latest sneakers, the upper is knitted from a blend of coffee yarn and recycled polyester, before a waterproof nano membrane is laminated between the shoe upper and inner lining.

Aside from the waterproof properties of the membrane layer, the coffee yarn brings some other bonuses - its antibacterial, has micro-pockets in its structure that help trap and release bad odours and dry twice as fast as standard polyester, and it is resistant to fading by UV light.

The new large volume SLS MfgPro230 xS

Known predominantly for its wide range of 3D printers for the education and consumer markets, XYZPrinting has a backstory worthy of a dark and brooding superhero - it’s owners are a huge contract manufacturer.

Its parent company, New Kinpo Group, are OEMs for a huge range of electronics brands and products [fun fact: chances are that if you’ve ever used a digital calculator, NKG made it] and has the manufacturing and factory nous to move its 3D printing kit into the realm of professional additive manufacturing.

The first signs of this were mentioned at the end of 2018, and already its professional range is expanding - with more still to come - adding the large volume SLS MfgPro230 xS to the range.

AMD targets budget conscious CAD users with $199 Radeon Pro WX 3200

AMD is going after the budget end of the workstation market with its new $199 Radeon Pro WX 3200 professional graphics card. The low-profile card is focused on mainstream 3D CAD and is designed to fit into Small Form Factor (SFF) workstations like the HP Z2 SFF.

With 1.66 TFLOPS peak single precision compute performance, the Radeon Pro WX 3200 is up to 33 percent faster than the previous generation Radeon Pro WX 3100.

AMD reckons the Radeon Pro WX 3200 is best suited to small and medium projects. However, in some heavily CPU bound applications like Autodesk Revit or Autodesk Inventor we expect it will deliver the same performance as the more powerful Radeon Pro WX 4100 or WX 5100 GPUs, regardless of model size.
