Users of SolidWorks will for the first time be able to simplify, optimise and perform risk assessments on a design in one integrated tool, thanks to a new plug-in from Cortime.
‘Robust design’ is used to determine the impact of controllable and uncontrollable factors on a design, with Cortime allowing the user to be able to quantify the risk of design failure and avoid nasty surprises later in process.
For example, an engineer can use the probability of failures as objectives when optimising their designs, leading to fewer design failures and a shortened development cycle.
“Cortime has completed the circle in creating the full package of design exploration tools. Essential questions: “How can I simplify my design? Have I found the best design? Will the design fail once it hits production?” Cortime answers these questions for R&D Engineers,” says company CEO Rasmus Høtoft.
Developed at its HQ in Copenhagen, Denmark, Cortime will unveil its SolidWorks-embedded robust design analysis at SolidWorks World 2019, although DEVELOP3D readers with a SolidWorks license can download a free trial of the software here.
