Design Optimized: Stop Designing Like it’s 1999

Where do your designs begin? Do you use previous projects as a starting point? Can they be based on hard-earned knowledge, or is it something else? When faced with a straightforward problem like a beam carrying a load, creating an efficient structure can be done with, let’s call it, our engineering intuition, but you don’t just design simple parts and assemblies with single loads, you design complex 3D structures with loads in multiple dimensions. This is where topology optimization and generative design software comes into play. These new tools allow users to quickly and easily analyze load paths to generate the ideal and most efficient structural part layout. Utilizing these cutting-edge tools, designers and engineers often design parts that are lighter, stronger, and less costly than ever before.

This presentation will explore the history and theory of optimization all the way back to its roots in biomimicry (mimicking nature) and Wolff’s Law form the 19th century that states that a bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed. Attendees will see real-world applications and leave with an understanding of how they can use optimization today to improve almost every structural part or product that they create.

Andy Rahden // Pluralsight

Building knowledge to Create the Future

Synopsis: In this session, we will share the importance of learning to progress technology in an ever-changing world. People learn in a variety of ways, and different types of learners utilize different approaches to digesting knowledge. Through catering to different learning styles, and curating content to specified personas, people and business can proactively expedite the learning process and move to technological advancement at new levels. We will discuss the need for humans to innovate, and the importance of utilizing the right tools at the right times to do so, to impact change in the world. We will share how Pluralsight address the needs of these different learners and how we have innovated tools over the past few years to help learners in that journey for Designers and Engineers.

Multisensory Virtual Experiences: A case study with JLR

Humans continuously perceive the world with all our senses: visuals, audio, smell and feel. Furthermore, the interaction of these senses, so called cross-modalities, can have a major influence on how environments are perceived. Traditional Virtual Reality systems typically only concentrate on visuals and audio and are thus not capable of providing authentic experiences. This talk describes the recent PSi project between WMG, University of Warwick and JLR to develop and fully validate highly realistic multisensory virtual experiences that will be applicable at all levels of vehicle design.

More intelligent design tools

Both parametric & generative are terms used to signify intelligent tools in CAD. Initially, tools in CAD were built to replicate existing ways of doing things — sometimes even borrowing from other industries (like lofting from the shipbuilding industry). As new manufacturing methods have emerged, like additive, the existing techniques make it difficult (if not impossible) to take advantage of all of the amazing things that these advanced processes allow for. The current argument has always been additive manufacturing allows for far more complex structures than what we could have built in the past, so design tools need to represent this complexity. While this is true, additive cannot build “anything” & there also still are a number of constraints. It is just that the constraints are different. Allowing CAD to understand constraints is the first step towards more intelligent design tools. These constraints can be mechanical: like interfaces to other parts, structural: like load cases, & they can be based on the manufacturing process: like no large horizontal spans. However, the knowledge of the constraints are not enough to design an object. Additionally, rule sets are needed that represent a structural system or typology in combination with constraints allow for more intelligent design tools. Parametric technology is still incredibly useful to allow for the constant changes within the design process while the actual tools, or operations are generative.

Dr Auday Al-Rawe // Intrinsys

Simulation driven additive manufacturing

Industrial grade Additive Manufacturing (AM) is growing more rapidly than ever before and has the potential to revolutionize the way we design and make products, but there are still significant barriers that could potentially limit its widespread adoption.  So, our challenge is how we can make simulation help get reliability back into AM designs and how we can design parts so they print right the first time.

There are a number of key areas where simulation can play an important role in 3D printing such as: generating a functional design, generating lattice structures, calibrating the material, optimizing the manufacturing process, and in-service performance. This presentation from Intrinsys Ltd will describe the end-to-end simulation-driven solution that SIMULIA/Dassault Systemes have developed for addressing key challenges that industry faces.

Suzanne Venables-Wood // Renishaw

Standing Tall

Understanding the factors that affect the metallurgy of additively manufactured components is important when considering the production of end use parts. All metals and alloys respond differently to the AM production process, laser energy absorption and predisposition to internal stress build up. Defects can arise if the material processing parameters are incorrectly developed or assigned to each geometry.

Suzanne will explain how material processing parameters can be optimised using Renishaw QuantAM build preparation software to manufacture reliable parts using laser powder bed fusion technology on Renishaw AM systems.

She will also discuss the potential future of metal part series production and the need for designers to consider functionality, aesthetics and the requirement for post finishing techniques to transform parts.

Innovation in 3D Printing is Now More About the Bottom Line Value

3D printing has for many years helped speed innovation across multiple industries with prototyping and modeling. With the ability now to print strong, precise parts, manufacturers are uncovering unprecedented gains – eliminating inefficiencies in production line turnover and speeding time to market for new products. Strong, lightweight and functional tooling as well as working prototypes can be printed within a day rather than weeks, and at a much lower cost than traditional machining. With 3D printing moving out of engineering labs and further towards production, customers expect more quality, less waste, better monitoring, and software controls, and more economic benefit from their printers.

Join Greg Mark, CEO and founder of Markforged who will discuss the value manufacturers gain from same-day engineering-strength prints made of both carbon fiber and metal, as well as the importance of in-process, closed loop inspection.  He will share examples of the significant bottom line cost and time savings gained by Markforged customers.

How to accelerate a hardware startup

It’s exciting that so many people are founding hardware startups, especially in the UK where software and services dominate. The internet makes the required knowledge, finance and early customers more accessible than ever before, but most hardware startup veterans will admit that the failure rate is extremely high and most founders are naïve about the challenges they will face and ignorant of the best strategies. In this talk, Mat will share insights about how the Central Research Laboratory, London’s first purpose-built hardware accelerator, improves the success rate of resident ventures.

How the British Design Fund could help your product to market

Deciding how best to finance your product start-up business is getting increasingly complicated. As alternative forms of funding are becoming available, start-ups have many more options available to them than they did 10 years ago. But the myriad of product innovation grants, benevolent funds, awards and crowdfunding platforms for early-stage product companies can leave some founders feeling overwhelmed when it comes to deciding how to spend their time and limited budgets when raising that all-important seed money to help launch their product idea. John Mathers, director of the new British Design Fund, sets out why the fund was set up and who it can help.
