Attendees will learn how DriveWorksXpress can make design changes simple and easy. DFMXpress can help catch mistakes to the manufacturing process. SimulationXpress will determine effects of force, pressure, and generate reports to document results. FloXpress shows how a fluid will flow through a model.
