Project Arro is a free Autodesk Labs technology preview focused on our Autodesk Simulation user community. The intent is to help our teams closely engage with participants so we can all learn about the needs of our users and better understand how we can best address them. The tech preview installation is independent from the commercially available SimStudio Tools 2016 installation. The two can sit side-by-side. Participants need an Autodesk ID with Simulation Mechanical Flex, CFD Flex, or Moldflow Flex entitlements to use the tech preview.
Here are 3 videos that show off Project Arro. The last 2 are brand new. Here is the original:
The new Linear Static Stress Setup and Non-Linear Static Stress Results Visualization videos are the first in a series to jump start new technology preview users’ experience during project development. The Linear Static Stress setup video shows the workflow to manipulate and customize Material Settings, and add constraints, forces and a point mass to a model before simulation. Its partnered Results Visualization video walks users through various ways to utilize the Results Workspace, which includes deformation scale amplification, maximum-minimum query, use of slice planes, and the plotting capabilities that SimStudio currently offers.
A skidder is any type of heavy vehicle used in a logging operation for pulling cut trees out of a forest in a process called “skidding," where the logs are transported from the cutting site to a landing. The linear analysis video shows how to set up a skitter boom as if it were made of Titanium and a custom material called Blue Steel (Hey Zoolander) and apply a force that is equal to a load of timber including gravity.
The non-linear analysis results video shows the stress results (e.g., min and max points) and displacement (i.e., how much it bends) if a skidder boom made of Titanium and Blue Steel picked up a load of timber.
