Not anymore. Example #1: digital twins, in which a physical object has a continuous digital representation and is simulated using physics-based models. Example #2: structural analysis of replacement parts for 3D printing. Example #3: Physical inspection using AR gear with simulation results overlaid on the physical reality.
