When developing products, considerable effort is often spent in defining the geometry, load, and support conditions for a component. However, when it comes to materials, many people resort to a handful of ‘preferred’ materials and then iterate and refine the design until they achieve the required performance. Although this will result in a product that works, it won’t necessarily result in the best product.

This webinar introduces the materials data, comparison and selection tools in CES Selector and demonstrate how they can be used to fill this missing materials piece of the product development workflow – by enabling users to quickly confirm or identify the ‘best’ materials for their application and provide confidence that their simulation work starts with the best material options.

Webinar Outline

  • Common approaches and challenges when choosing materials for simulation.
  • Overview of materials data and comparison tools in CES Selector.
  • Demonstration of the workflow for identifying and comparing materials using CES Selector and importing materials’ data into solidThinking Inspire and HyperMesh.
