As many times this information is notresearchers, we dont have the available. This is why it is so importantknowledge of the construction or to have portable instrumentation liketechniques, Professor Ravina says. Our Simcenter SCADAS hardware andlong-term partnership between the Simcenter software. They are easy toolsuniversity researchers, the violin to manage to have a prompt responsemakers, the violinists, and Siemens for the violin maker during theDigital Industries Software has been construction of an instrument. very important, interesting and exciting. Looking forward, we are part of several It is very difficult to imagine what willinternational projects and I hope this happen in the future of violin makingwill continue as well. It is very because of this technology helping usimportant and useful to compare results today, Montanari adds. Even aswith other researchers and experts on technology becomes more available, an international scale. nwe have to maintain a sensibility that violin making is about personal construction. We dont want to forget that we have fingers and the ability to listen to a sound. For more than a decade, tools like Simcenter Testlab software and Simcenter SCADAS hardware have been very useful to study an instruments behavior to gain information from a vibrational and an acoustic point of view.Professor Enrico Ravina Polytechnic School, Universit di Genova ALI Associazione Liutaria Italiana9'
