Concept Design - Get it Right From the Start

Presentation by Orlando Sadaro, Managing Director at Design 8.

If you are a designer then this presentation is right up your alley. Design seems to be an iterative process by nature. But what if we don't accept this default? What if we could get it right, from the start...? It would lead to a shorter time to market, less material use and better product performance. A dream? My presentation is about solidThinking design software helping you achieving just that. Get a head start and take the best possible solution to start exploring your design thoughts.

Redesign and Topological Optimization of Transtibial Prosthesis by Reverse Engineering

Presentation by Eduardo Bajo,

Presentation of a project consisting of redesign with topology optimization of a transtibial leg prosthesis. It is a project in which the reverse engineering workflow has been followed, starting with 3D digitization of an amputated limb and real old prosthesis. Subsequently, they have been reconstructed in 3D to simplify and applied topology optimization, taking into account the biomechanics of human gait, using Altair Inspire software. Finally, the reconstruction of the optimization through organic design has been carried out with the software Evolve.

This project won the 1st prize in the II International Industrial Design Contest UPM-Technical University of Madrid.

During the presentation it will be presented the new 2019 Edition of the Industrial Design Contest UPM, open to students and professionals, sponsored by Altair.

Development of a New Lightweight Aluminum Profile for a Glass Balustrade

The design of architectural components such as a balustrade can be challenging, since the design does not only have to look good, it also has to meet several safety requirements and standards. In addition, all designs have to be developed within the shortest time possible. To meet these challenges the engineers, architects and designers at Faraone are always looking for solutions that can reduce their design and testing cycles.

An Interview with Ben Farmer of Robot Bike Co. Discussing the Development of their R160 Bike with Altair

Robot Bike Company (RBC) is a new startup established in the UK by aerospace engineers and mountain biking enthusiasts who identified the potential of combining additive manufacturing technologies with carbon fiber to, in their own words, “create the best bike frames possible”. To deliver a customizable, lightweight, high strength bike, RBC’s frame was intended to be created from carbon fiber, a material very common in the industry. The carbon fiber tubes, as well as the bike’s other components and systems were to be joined by additively manufactured titanium ‘nodes’, manufactured based on the specification of individual riders. Altair ProductDesign’s engineering team was tasked with optimizing these joints, which included the head tube, seat post and chain stay lugs, to ensure they were as lightweight as possible and still able to withstand the forces of downhill mountain bike riding, all while being fit for the AM process.
