Machine Design’s Software Week

March 10, 2024
For the week beginning March 11, look to us for content about the software that helps drive today’s modern manufacturing environment.

From streamlining the design process (CAD) to converting that design into instructions for automated manufacturing (CAM) to optimizing product designs (CAE) to managing product data, processes and resources (PLM), software is an absolute necessity in today’s manufacturing landscape. Multidisciplinary engineers are leaning into the integration of software and hardware, and they are achieving innovative designs by doing so.

Given this ever-increasing use of software, Machine Design’s coverage of it continues to grow. Beginning Mon., March 11, we are taking a hard look at the software that multidisciplinary design engineers have available to them.

Each day we’ll publish new content on the topic, including our webinar on Thursday, “How to Use Simulation and Interactive Modeling for Additive Manufacturing,” where panelists share specific ways they boost productivity and achieve high-fidelity results when applying upfront approaches to simulation and interactive modeling. It’s not too late to register.
