Granta Design (Cambridge, UK) has released GRANTA MI:Materials Gateway 3.0, its third generation solution for accessing managed materials data within CAD), CAE and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems. Engineering enterprises manage materials specified in their products (metals, composites, plastics, and natural materials) using the GRANTA MI system. MI:Materials Gateway then provides this approved, traceable data directly within engineers’ design, simulation or PLM environments, thereby reducing time spent looking for information, and helping ensure accuracy and consistency. Developed via partnerships with the CAD, CAE, and PLM providers, MI:Materials Gateway is said to offer integrated functionality, appearing as a pop-up window inside the host system. MI:Materials Gateway 3.0 takes advantage of the functionality of GRANTA MI Version 8, and supports the latest versions of host systems, including Abaqus 6.14, HyperMesh 13 and Windchill 10. Granta says optimizing usability has been a focus for the new release; familiar operations such as copy, paste, undo and redo now operate directly on material and manufacturing process assignments in CAD. The ability for users to save and re-use combinations of search criteria that reflect their requirements further extends the concept of materials “favorites.” Interoperability has been extended, with direct support for MI:Product Intelligence, Granta’s solution for product risk reporting. Reports on risks associated with critical materials, restricted substances and more can now be run directly within CAD or PLM.
