The latest issue of Altair Engineering’s Concept to Reality published “Getting the Right Design, Getting the Design Right,” an article describing four ways that we can enhance the entire product development cycle by 1) finding pathways to winning designs earlier in the process, 2) improving collaboration between industrial design and engineering, 3) considering efficient forms starting from the early concept phase, and 4) effectively visualizing and validating design concepts.
Click here to freely download the article. Concept to Reality is published bi-annually for Altair Engineering, Inc. by Penton Custom Media and focuses on cutting-edge design development, innovative product strategy, and global process automation issues.
“Getting the Right Design, Getting the Design Right” was also presented at Altair’s annual European HyperWorks Technology Conference Series in Versailles held October 27-29, 2010. The event attracted more than 500 attendees from 275 companies.

solidThinking Inspired and its unique morphogenesis form-generation technology can provide great inspiration to architects just like it does for product designers.
The pictures below illustrate how starting from a very simple design space (represented in orange) and defining the environmental conditions (loads and forces), can yield inspiring inputs for new designs, in this case for a bridge.
A preview of the upcoming new solidThinking Inspired release was offered to a large architectural audience during the recent Acadia 2010 conference in New York, October 21 to 24. The software was positively received, having been described as “provocative” and “user friendly” by attendees.
