MCADCafe Industry Predictions for 2020 & CM Labs


“Combined with digital twins, DIL will drive the next generation of simulation; and companies like CM Labs ( are leading the charge in this regard.”

In 2020, we can expect to see a growing number of off-highway, construction, and other industrial equipment manufacturers embracing new technologies to drive their design process.

In addition to utilizing Finite Element Analysis validation to limit costly and time-consuming extensive field-prototype testing, manufacturers are starting to deploy simulation for Driver-in-the-Loop (DIL) testing processes.
