Star Wars & CAD Integration

I was eleven when I watched Star Wars for the first time “Attack of the Clones”. The idea that spaceships and other creatures can exist in any other galaxies brought me another vision of the stars. One of the major events of 2015 winter was the release of “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.” Now, May 2018 brings the release of “Solo: A Star Wars Story”. My connection to Star Wars runs deep!

And what happens when Flux runs into Star Wars?
With Flux software you can easily make CAD import from neutral formats (STEP, IGES, DXF…) to native formats (SAT, SOLIDWORKS, INVENTOR, Pro_E, Catia V4, Catia V5…)
I would like to give you an example of an easy import and mesh improvements. So let’s model the Star Wars Millenium Falcon!

In order to strike a better balance of the Force, I’ll also import and mesh a Darth Vader model!










May the Flux be with you!

Quantification of Metal Flow Lines

The design of a manufacturing process is iterative in nature. The influential process parameters which can be quantified (E.g. Die radius) are continuously optimized using metal forming simulators coupled with optimization algorithms. This approach is being successfully applied at various … Read More
