Siemens Digital Industries Partners with Siemens Energy

PLANO, TX, Apr 23, 2021 – Siemens Digital Industries Software announced the adoption of Simcenter software as the core simulation technology for the Generation Division of Siemens Energy AG in developing its next generation energy systems. Siemens Energy’s Generation Division has long partnered with Siemens Digital Industries Software for design and simulation and now, through expanded use of the Simcenter portfolio, the company has adopted a new approach to simulation that is reducing time to market and improved reliability.

Siemens Energy can use Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software to visualize metal temperatures in a turbine blade, predicted using conjugate heat transfer simulation.

“Siemens Digital Industries Software and the Generation Division of Siemens Energy share more than the name Siemens – we are both committed to pushing the boundaries of technology to more efficiently deliver the most reliable solutions to our customers,” said Jean-Claude Ercolanelli, senior vice president of simulation and test solutions, Siemens Digital Industries Software. “We thank Siemens Energy for selecting Simcenter, part of the Xcelerator portfolio, as their simulation platform as they develop the next generation of sustainable, reliable and affordable energy systems.”

The collaboration is fostering concurrent multiple-disciplinary optimization that encompasses feature-based geometry, reacting flow, conjugate heat transfer, and automated dataflow between analyses. This effort has resulted in increased product efficiency, longer life, and lowered emissions. The shift has enabled the Generation Division of Siemens Energy to manage the transition from historical methods and tools to new methods and applications, providing an integrated data flow across the design chain by breaking down discipline silos. It has also enabled a deeper, more engaged relationship between software developers and designers.

To bring concurrent engineering vision into focus, wide-ranging tools have been used that include Simcenter 3D software for parametric feature based geometric models and nonlinear structural analysis including consideration of material creep; HEEDS software for automated simulation workflows; Simcenter STAR-CCM+ software for combustion and thermal analysis; and the extendable NX software environment with connectors for integrated design tools.

“Through increased use of robust design methodologies for innovative trusted product designs, improved simulation workflows for product R&D effectiveness and use of advanced physics-based simulation for early critical design decisions, Simcenter is enabling the Generation division of Siemens Energy to deliver more reliable products to our customers, more quickly,” said Paul Garbett, director of engineering, Large Gas Turbine Modules, Siemens Energy, Generation Division.

Siemens Digital Industries Software is driving transformation to enable a digital enterprise where engineering, manufacturing and electronics design meet tomorrow. The Xcelerator portfolio helps companies of all sizes create and leverage digital twins that provide organizations with new insights, opportunities and levels of automation to drive innovation.

PTC Ships Vuforia Expert Capture, Creo GDX

BOSTON, MA, Apr 22, 2021 – PTC announced that it has expanded its robust Software as a Service (SaaS) capabilities with two new products shipping on the PTC Atlas SaaS platform. Atlas, announced at the LiveWorx 2020 Digital Transformation Conference, now supports an expanding portfolio of SaaS applications and production-ready solutions. With the Vuforia Expert Capture and Creo Generative Design Extension (GDX) offerings joining the existing Onshape offering on Atlas, PTC continues to accelerate availability of SaaS products in the market.

Vuforia Expert Capture and Creo Generative Design Extension join Onshape on PTC Atlas, expanding the company’s SaaS offerings.

“The Onshape team invested years of effort building a cutting-edge SaaS platform that could host a range of product development applications. As part of PTC, we’ve been able to accelerate the development of Atlas, and in turn leverage the Atlas platform to accelerate PTC’s overall SaaS strategy. The new Vuforia and Creo applications immediately gain the incredible operational and technical scalability of the modern, multi-tenant Atlas architecture,” said Andrew Kimpton, vice president, PTC Atlas Development, PTC. “We are very excited to bring new levels of performance, security, and efficiency, as well as breakthrough new SaaS collaboration capabilities, to the entire PTC portfolio.”

“With the power of Atlas, we’re able to provide Vuforia users a robust set of capabilities that they need to scale deployments in the enterprise, including version control, content management, and approval workflows that would have taken years to deliver without Atlas,” says Mike Campbell, executive vice president and general manager of augmented reality, PTC. “We’re proud to be able to offer market-leading AR offerings to our customers and partner network. Atlas helps make these offerings better, and we look forward to delivering a robust roadmap of Atlas-enabled benefits in the near future.”

Theorem-XR Updated, Supports Microsoft HoloLens 2

TAMWORTH, UK, Apr 22, 2021 – The latest version of the Theorem-XR experience suite and Visualization Pipeline are now available for download with next generation productivity enhancing features to support the XR user.

This latest release sees the Theorem-XR portfolio offering support for Microsoft HoloLens 2 and to complement this, support for Microsoft Azure Remote Rendering (ARR) technology, enabling high quality, high performance, large scale data streaming to your HoloLens 2 device. We are also a proud member of the Microsoft Mixed Reality Partner Program, enabling us to build and deploy these breakthrough industry solutions that combine our 25+ years of visualization experience working with CAD.

This release also sees added support for:

  • full Enterprise deployment of their Visualization Pipeline
  • VRED Pass through
  • Unity Asset Bundle Creation
  • FBX with Quads

An overview of these features can be found on the website.

If you aren’t aware of Theorem-XR or what it can do for you, it enables you to visualize your 3D CAD and PLM assets in context and at full scale, using Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality technologies on the device of your choice. Theorem-XR is data and device neutral, so where the cliché suggests that one size fits all, Theorem-XR really does offer something for everyone, at all stages of the XR journey, but you need to know where to start first-and we can help you with that.

Out of the box Theorem-XR offers ‘standard’ engineering-based use case experiences that work collaboratively, enabling remote teams and home-based staff to join and work in an immersive multi-user environment, from anywhere, you just need an internet connection. Even desktop users can join a collaborative session.

Their Experiences include:

  • Design Review
  • Factory Layout
  • Guides for Training and Education (Author and Operator),
  • Visualization
  • Visual Digital Twin

The experiences are underpinned by the Visualization Pipeline which provides a fully automated process that takes 3D data assets directly into Theorem-XR, or for the creation of Unity or Unreal assets for use in internally developed XR solutions. Using the Visualization Pipeline to prepare and optimize CAD data removes the difficulties that can be encountered when trying to get 3D data into XR, and can be done from within the CAD system by simply using the ‘save as’ command, ‘drag and drop’ your data on to the server, or used as part of a PLM integration.

Using Theorem-XR to undertake everyday engineering tasks allows you to visualize your 3D CAD data at full scale and in context, rather than from the confines of a 2D computer screen. Utilizing the latest XR technologies help to reduce costs, improve product quality and support the faster development of products and manufacturing processes across the enterprise by bridging the gap between the digital and the physical.

About Theorem Solutions

Theorem Solutions helps engineering and manufacturing companies extract greater value from their 3D CAD assets. Enabling them to use those assets for supplier and customer collaboration, for creating technical publications with 3D content and in augmented, mixed and virtual reality experiences, helping to reduce costs and improve time to market.
