Advanced Training: Workflow Automation
Engineers need to be able to deliver project analyses faster and more efficiently than ever before. This is why FLOW-3D and FLOW-3D CAST have built-in options for workflow automation; a modular text-driven structure that allows for easy scripting; and with the new FLOW-3D Design Explorer, the ability to easily and graphically set up complex workflows including DOEs and full multi-parameter, multi-objective optimization studies. In this advanced training, we will review the features that can help you save time and money through automation and optimization.
The Workflow Automation advanced training will take place the afternoon of June 3, from 13:00 – 17:00 at the Diana Majestic Sheraton. You can sign up for the training when you register for the conference.

Milan is the second most populous city in Italy, after Rome and is Italy’s first industrial city, with a multifaceted identity that offers attractions in the field of art, commerce, design, education, fashion, finance, and tourism.
The city is brimming with iconic art and architecture from Roman times to the Renaissance and beyond to the contemporary era. Famous symbols of the city include the Duomo, an Italian Gothic cathedral that took 600 years to complete and now stands as the largest church in Italy, and Sforza Castle, home to several Dukes and Duchesses of Milan, as well as artists including Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Today the city is recognized as the world’s fashion and design capital, thanks to several international events and fairs including Milan Fashion Week and the Milan Furniture Fair, which are among the world’s largest in terms of revenue, visitors and growth.
500th Anniversary of the Death of Leonardo da Vinci
2019 marks the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death. A series of events are planned around the world and of course in Italy, and Florence and Milan in particular, the two cities where Da Vinci spent most of his time.
Milan is preparing for this period with many events: usually-closed rooms containing Leonardo’s fresco of the Sforza Castle will be open to the public, and Leonardo’s Codex and other art pieces, including tapestries and models, will be shown throughout the city.
Da Vinci’s Il Cavallo Case Study
‘Realizing Da Vinci’s Il Cavallo’ was a collaboration between XC Engineering and Institute and Museum of the History of Science (IMSS). Using Da Vinci’s notes on the casting of Il Cavallo, collected in a 34-page handbook, the IMSS and XC Engineering were able to demonstrate that Il Cavallo, often referred to as “the horse that never was,” can be successfully cast as designed.
