Simcenter 3D TechDay

A Simulation TechDay and Technical Masterclass

Join ESTEQ and Pavel Goncharov, from Siemens International for a complimentary Simcenter 3D TechDay. This TechDay deals with engineering simulation and offers a technical Masterclass as well as a business overview of Simcenter 3D – Siemens’ answer for engineering simulation.

Siemens PLM is continuously expanding their simulation solutions to positively impact product development and engineering.  At this event, we will host members of Siemens International to both indicate their vision for the current suite of simulation technologies as well as expand on their strategy for the future of the Simcenter Suite (System Simulation, FEA, CFD, MBD, Testing Solutions etc.).

To add additional value, we will also present feature/product level demos and best practices to indicate the practical value and strength of Simcenter 3D (FEA, CFD, MBD etc.). Therefore, with this event, we will aim to address both the business (vision) and application (technical) level benefits of the greater simulation capabilities in the Simcenter solution whilst focusing on Simcenter 3D.
