Live from CAASE: Simulation Helps NuStep Improve Component Design

Caelynx helped NuStep improve its cross trainer design using FEA to design a cast part. The next step is 3D metal printing.

By combining two of the results in order to achieve targeted displacement and inertia goals, NuStep was able to come up with an optimal design that reduced weight and ensured the machine would steel operate comfortably for users.
