FEA (Finite Element Analysis)

What is FEA? FEA is a type of software  simulation that is used to virtually test your design to ensure it doesn’t break after production. Not all designers use this software so don’t let this deter you when trying to find a suitable designer. Typically used in the engineering industry FEA is now widely used as an useful tool in product design. How does it work? The way FEA works is by importing your 3D cad design into the FEA software, add your relevant parameters and let the software perform a simulation. The end result of the FEA simulation will […]

What is 3D CAD? This is the term given to describe an object that occurs on a three-axis Cartesian coordinate system. Cartesian coordinate system is basically a way of describing the X and Y axis that we learnt about in School, except this time there is a third axis called the Z axis which represents depth of a part. By the above definition any object that is 3D CAD needs to have these 3 coordinate systems. The term 3D is generally used when using computer graphics but now becoming more recognised in television and computer games. Typically 3D objects in […]
