DEP introduces ConceptWorks to optimise concept modeling

by Sricharan R 01 Oct 2021


Detroit Engineered Products (DEP) launched its automated CAE modeling tool, ConceptWorks recently. With ConceptWorks, CAE engineers will now be able to bridge the gap between modeling design and analysis, which will help in optimising the model with faster turnaround time.

Radha Krishnan, Founder and President, Detroit Engineered Products (DEP) said, “We also ensure that the tools are simple and designed in such a way that engineers at any level can start creating concept parts after a single 3-4 hour training. We have started with ConceptWorks for structures, and we have more exciting upcoming modules in the pipeline.”

 

ConceptWorks allows users to redefine the concept modeling phase by allowing engineers to efficiently produce concept members for design and optimization studies. As a CAE tool for structural engineers, ConceptWorks enables the creation of structural members and joints without using CAD software, allowing engineers to focus on their core competencies.

 

Ray Chaney, Global Director of Pre Sales and Software Support, DEP said, “Any ideas from the CAE team to generate new parts or improve design needs to be communicated to the CAD designers, who will then create or redesign the components. After this, engineers will need to spend time on meshing and assembly and this back and forth process will continue until an optimal solution is achieved which is very time consuming, and inefficient. ConceptWorks will help solve these problems."
