ROBOT Millennium Freeware (http://www.robobat.com/n/en/212)   

Robobat are pleased to announce the launch of ROBOT Millennium Freeware to a wide variety of markets and countries - ROBOT Millennium Freeware is a variant of the world renowned ROBOT Millennium software.

Registration is a simple process after which Robobat will send the user a password to use the software. ROBOT Millennium Freeware is a powerful application that will allow users to analyze:

  • 2D and 3D multi material frame structures with up to 200 members
  • FE plates and shells - walls, floors and surfaces with up to 500 nodes
  • Section libraries from around the world
  • Access to the ROBOT API to allow users to integrate their own applications
  • Bi-directional link to Revit Structure
  • Linear analysis, English language support
  • In fact ROBOT Millennium Freeware will provide a solution for the engineer to carry out much of their everyday analysis work.

Commenting on the launch of ROBOT Millennium Freeware, Gary Wyatt, Sales & Marketing Director of Robobat, commented: "We are pleased to offer this free solution to Engineers and we know that they will make great practical use of this powerful application. When we were formulating our plans for ROBOT Millennium Freeware it was our goal to produce something highly relevant to the engineers work, not just a gimmick version or short term evaluation or money refunded if not satisfied offer, but rather a real, powerful piece of software for real projects. And that is what we have delivered with ROBOT Millennium Freeware.

Naturally our hope is that satisfied users will then wish to explore additional aspects of ROBOT Millennium not covered by the freeware, such as multi code steel and concrete design, advanced FE analysis, cables, P-Delta, non linear and dynamic analysis - the upgrade to various commercial versions of ROBOT Millennium will be available to freeware users with an attractive pricing policy".

Robobat reserves its non-disputable right to issue the freeware license at its own discretion.

With image resolution varying from 15cm to 15m, some lucky users can zoom right into their backyard and use the ruler tool to measure the size of their pool and their neighbour's pool as well. In fact, many hours can be spent exploring what Google has to offer - 3-D buildings, Digital Elevation Models (DEM) of mountains, and even non-imagery features such as weather, places of interest, traffic information, and much more. What many internet users don't know however is that GE in fact offers much more than what can be seen on the surface. By using some of GE's tools, one can create maps and views with limitless features. One can customize the virtual globe to display anything. Users can add their own imagery, their own GIS files and superimpose them over GE's own features.

Drawings can be exported in several of graphic formats (PDF, EPS, PGF for LaTeX, SVG, PNG, JPG). Even if it is very simple, it can be still considered an Electronic design automation (EDA) software. FidoCadJ is inspired from FidoCad (without "J"), which was a vector graphic editor useful for electrical schematics and printed circuit boards. It uses a file format containing only 7-bit ASCII text, very compact and suited for copy and pasting from/into newsgroups and forum messages. This determined its success among the italian Usenet community, from late ´90s. Unfortunately, FidoCad was able to run only on Microsoft Windows. This is the reason why I decided to write FidoCadJ, a small editor compatible with FidoCad, but multi-platform running on MacOSX, Linux and Windows. FidoCadJ is internationalized and its interface and manuals are available in english, french and italian. Features: Draw electrical schematics and simple PCBs Export in a variety of graphic formats Multi platform Easy to use Compact text format, for copy/pasting in Usenet messages FidoCad compatible

    xPSD (http://www.padtinc.com/support/freesw/xpsd/default.htm)   

    Vendor description: xPSD is a tool that allows user to take the results of a standard modal analysis and conduct fast, flexible studies on the behavior of the structure under loading. Works with the latest version of the ANSYS general-purpose FE code.

    xPSD uses the 'large mass method' to capture the modal response of a system to random vibration, expressed in terms of a 'Power Spectral Density' (PSD) input. The user can quickly specify many different PSD input curves and extract the response of the system. The goal of the tool is to provide a simple, but fast and accurate way for users to carry out PSD analyses.

    Features:

    • Supports single base excitation
    • Utilizes a standard modal analysis (with large mass) as input
    • Stores modal information in efficient binary file that is an order of magnitude smaller than the equivalent .RST modal result file 
    • User can request displacement, velocity, acceleration, or component stress response at any node
    • User can request '1-sigma' displacement, velocity, acceleration, or component stress information for the entire model, or for sub-components of the model
    • Response curves can be output for display in ANSYS or a spreadsheet
    • '1-sigma' results can be output for contour display in ANSYS
    • Entire process can be run from within ANSYS, interactively or in batch mode
    • Input PSD and output request controlled by simple text file

    FRANC3D/Classic (http://www.cfg.cornell.edu/software/franc3d_osm.htm)   
    FRANC3D/Classic Version 3.2 is a work-station based FRacture ANalysis Code for simulating arbitrary non-planar 3D crack growth that has been under development since 1987. OSM (Object Solid Modeler) is a pre-processor to FRANC3D/Classic for building the initial geometric model. FRANC3D/Classic provides a mechanism for representing the geometry and topology of 3D structures with arbitrary non-planar cracks, along with functionality discretizing or meshing the structure, 2) attaching boundary conditions at the geometry level and allowing the mesh to inherit these values, and 3) modifying the geometry to allow crack growth, but with only local remeshing required during crack growth. The simulation process is controlled by the user through a graphical user-interface, which includes windows for the display of the 3D structure and a menu and dialog-box system for interacting with the program. FRANC3D/Classic is not tied to a particular numerical analysis scheme or program, and is able to create either surface or volume meshes. Consequently, any 3D boundary or finite element program, capable of handling arbitrary crack geometries, could be used to determine the structural response.

      KOMPAS-3D V9 LT (http://ascon.net/download.php)   
      KOMPAS-3D V9 is intended for creating three-dimensional associative models for individual parts and assembly units containing both original and standardized structural elements. The parametric technology allows quickly obtaining models for typical products basing on a once designed prototype. Numerous service functions facilitate solving auxiliary designing and production maintenance problems. A key feature of KOMPAS-3D V9 is the use of its own mathematical core and parametric technologies developed by ASCON specialists. The basic problem being solved by the system is the modelling of products in order to considerably reduce the period of their designing and launch them into production as fast as possible. These purposes being reached by means of the following features: Fast creating of engineering and design documentation, necessary for production output (assembly drawings, BOM, detail drawings etc.)Translating geometry into design applicationsTranslating geometry into control-program development kits for NC-controlled equipmentCreating additional images (for example, for catalogue creation, for creating of illustrations of manuals etc.)The model export/import tools (KOMPAS-3D supports IGES, SAT, XT, STEP, VRML formats) provide functioning of complexes containing various CAD/CAM/CAE systems.The product modelling in KOMPAS-3D V9 can be carried out by various methods, namely: down-top modelling (using finished components), top-down modelling (designing components in the context of a specific design), modelling based on a layout outline drawing (for example, on a kinematic diagram) or a combination of modelling methods. Such ideology provides obtaining easily modifiable associative models.

      VisMan3D (http://home.planet.nl/~ammeraal/software/visman3d.zip)   

      VisMan3D (Visual Manipulation in 3 Dimensions) is a free 3D graphics program for simple and user-friendly solid modeling. Just unzip the downloaded file (in a new directory) to obtain an exe file and some examples of input files. You can load components from input files or generate them yourself and then combine them. For example, this is the way the input file japan00.dat was made. When you open this file, you see alltwelve components of a Japanese puzzle, of which a cube can be built. The files japan01.dat, japan02.dat, etc.show successive stages in this building process, resulting in japan13.dat, the complete cube. In a series of files like this (with two digits preceding ".dat" in the filenames) you can now press thekeys 'arrow right' and 'arrow left' to open the next or the previous file very quickly. Use animation by pressing the G key (or by using the Go command of the Animation menu). There is now a complete set of letter and digit objects, which you can use to compose text in three dimensions,such as the above image.

        Driving Dimensions for Rhinoceros (http://drivingdimensions.com/download/)   
        Vendor description: Driving Dimensions for Rhinoceros is a powerful tool for bottom-up assembly design and kinematics simulation with assembly constraints compatible with the capabilities of mainstream MCAD software packages.

        With Driving Dimensions 0.1 for Rhinoceros you can easily position your rigid 3D parts with respect to each other by specifying assembly constraints (fixation, concentricity, coincidence, parallelism, perpendicularity, or tangency) and driving dimensions (distance and angle) between their faces and edges. Driving Dimensions plugin automatically satisfies all constraints and dimensions making a consistent assembly from existing parts. An assembled mechanism can then be animated by varying a parameter of one of its driving dimensions. A constraint manager tool allows easy navigation over all assembly constraints and driving dimensions imposed on geometric elements of a designed model. 

        The Driving Dimensions plugin is powered by the LGS 3D variational geometric solver and combines the flexibility of constraint-based geometric modeling with ease of use.

        Driving Dimensions 0.1 for Rhinoceros is a proposed to everyone for free beta testing.

        Collada Export is used for exporting SolidWorks assembly in the Collada format, design is then defined by an open standard for 3D applications. This enables leverage of other 3D authoring applications which may not import native SolidWorks files, including applications on different operating systems. Model geometry is preserved in the export, with colors, textures and motion.

        One of the key uses for a SolidWorks model exported to Collada is in a Microsoft Robotics Studio environment. This tool allows robotic simulation developers and robotic hardware makers to use code to control actual model geometry before any component is manufactured. Conversely, SolidWorks designers are able to export their motion studies into a format which in turn software developers can build upon to create simulations.

        Prerequisites:

        • SolidWorks 2009 SP0 or later - The Add-In will not run on older versions
        • MS Windows XP/Vista x32 - There is currently no x64 support

        Mapping Tools For all AutoCAD Family
        Read the quick and dirty manual in the Manual folder first, and do whatever it says. AcadTRK is a series of advanced AutoLisp & Menus and mapping tools that has been used by me beside many companies. For instance, it reads XYZ files, and write xyz to files. The tools are mostly based on construction surveying, total station based land surveying, and some of the utilities to enhance AutoCAD in turn ArcCAD. There are about 20 programs for your pleasure.

        There is an installation manual also. The tools use grad for angle, and North = 0, clockwise direction. So, who would like to use degree or others are to be careful.

        The lisps has recently was translated into English in about 20 minutes from Turkish. So, there mihght be some spelling errors as well as something still remains in Turkis, and sorry for that.

        Design Project Estimation Tool (DPET) (http://www.designviz.com/Form_user.htm)   

        Estimating times and costs for engineering projects is essential to a company's success. Underestimate often enough and your company goes broke. And overestimating sends business to competitors. The difficulty in estimating a design job is partially due to CAD programs. "CAD is a huge multiplier of all the good and bad that engineers do, so the difference between estimated and actual time has the potential to be greater than ever before," says Stephen Samuel, president of Design Visionaries Inc., a product-design firm and CAD software reseller and trainer. He adds that the estimating problem is exacerbated because many people who quote jobs are not necessarily experienced CAD users.

        To solve the problem, Samuel's team created the Design Project Estimation Tool (DPET). He says it captures his company's experience and the critical factors related to CAD that determine project schedules.

        Users register to receive a password that gives access to the estimator. The software consists of about five input windows, each of which is fairly self-explanatory. The first screen deals with variables such as a single user's skill level. Samuel suggests that estimators know what work will be performed by beginners (slow users), those of average skill, and experts. The calculator is intended to account for the project work of a homogenous staff (all mechanical or electrical) with differences in skill level as accounted for in the first input section. But it seems you could run the calculator once for each skill group. The separate totals would be combined for the aggregate project time.

        IOSO NS (http://www.iosotech.com/files/ns13/setup_ioso_ns_13.exe)   

        Powerful tool for nonlinear constrained optimization.You have an object, which should be improved by optimum coordination of several independent parameters, and executable mathematical model of this object, which computes its efficiency index depending on these parameters. Using IOSO NS 1.3, you can quickly and efficiently solve non-linear parametric optimization problem with dimensionality up to 5 independent variables and 5 functional inequality constraints. Family of IOSO NS versions utilizes set of heuristic self-organizing optimization algorithms. These algorithms are based on usage of owner-developed approximation technology. At every iteration of search for optimum response surfaces are being built for objective and constrained parameters, then these response surfaces are being optimized. Thus, the number of direct calls to mathematical model is minimized, and time expenditures for problem solution are also minimal. Using approximation technology makes it possible to solve successfully problems with complex topology of objective and constraints. Unlike the gradient methods, IOSO NS works robustly with discontinuous, non-differentiatable, noised and locally incomputable objectives and constraints. Software has friendly user interface. It doesn't require from user to be an expert in a field of numerical optimization. The number of algorithm settings available to be changed by user in IOSO NS program is minimal, all algorithm parameters are being adaptively changed during the process of search for optimum. The only thing required from user is to make a correct statement of optimization problem and prepare mathematical model input and output. IOSO NS has extended help system and samples of optimization projects with their source codes in FORTRAN for making it easier for you to begin work.

        If you need the optimization tool for larger dimensionalities, you can purchase extended features for IOSO NS 1.3. These features allow you optimization with dimensionalities up to 20 independent variables and 20 inequality functional constraints. To do it you should contact IOSO Technology Center.
