MSC Software has introduced new interoperability enhancements between MSC Apex and MSC Nastran, with the implementation of a new Faceted Body Toolset allowing users to automatically regenerate geometry from meshes without the need for manual CAD model recreation.

“There is huge value in MSC Nastran engineering data for maintenance simulations or as a starting point for the development of new products, but the geometries for these models are often lost and topology modifications are time-consuming,” said MSC Software VP product management Hugues Jeancolas.

“MSC Apex is the first CAE tool to automate this, and we anticipate it could save hours for a single part – or days for an assembly.”

We often get news of companies adopting new software packages, but rarely is it about the teams designing the machinery more typically used to make other companies’ products - hence our delight to receive news that Mazak has began to utilise PTC Creo and Windchill.

Founded in 1919, Yamazaki Mazak Corporation has grown into a global leader in machine tool production, and its UK subsidiary Yamazaki Mazak UK Ltd, will replace its legacy CAD and PLM software with that of PTC’s latest offerings.

“When you work with a high-volume product range you need a powerful design and PLM solution that can drive productivity,” said Dave Fisher, Engineering Director at Yamazaki Mazak UK Ltd. “Our move to PTC’s CAD and PLM solutions will tighten our key in-house operations, enabling design, engineering and manufacturing to work seamlessly together.
