CAD/CAM Corner 5/31/2012 23 comments Leveraging its 3D modeling, simulation, and virtual reality technologies, Dassault Systemes has collaborated with Boston's Museum of Science and Harvard University on an immersive 3D experience that takes people back to Egypt's ancient Giza plateau.
EVs Second to Natural Gas for Fiat
Blog 5/25/2012 25 comments Almost every automaker has had to 'pick a side' when it comes to alternative fuel options and ways to divest from a reliance on gasoline. Fiat is looking to back compressed natural gas or liquid propane as an interim solution.
Engineering, Science & Math in a Water Bottle
Mechatronics Zone 5/25/2012 32 comments Designing and filling a new type of water bottle might take less engineering work, but the description will help kids understand how science, math, and engineering influence their lives even through things that seem mundane.
Robots Cut Composite Repair Costs in Half
Engineering Materials 5/17/2012 26 comments A major advance in repairing composite structures combining robots and lasers bodes well for commercial aircraft such as the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and Airbus A350XWB, which contain composites in large proportions of their structures.
Plastic Doesn't Pollute – People Do
Blog 5/17/2012 18 comments Plastic may not be the most beloved of materials to the more environmentally minded, but Plasti 2012 aimed to mold a different opinion of the material in people's minds.
The Fun Side of 3D Printing
CAD/CAM Corner 5/15/2012 54 comments While 3D printers gain ground for traditional prototyping and limited-run manufacturing applications, the technology is also fueling a host of innovative use cases, from furniture design to collectibles, even for unmanned aircrafts.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
