V6 for Academia - Design and Engineering

Design and Engineering extends the Essentials Package and creates a complete advanced environment for design and engineering of products and manufacturing resources. It groups capabilities to automate the modelling of parts that will be produced using specific manufacturing processes, such as sheet metal, composite, and molding or routed systems made of pipes, tubes, and wires. The solution also automates the associative design of tooling which is required to actually produce such parts and systems.
