Electronics News 10/29/2013
You don’t have to be an engineer to have an opinion about engineering. We offer insight from the minds of Albert Einstein, James Dyson, Dean Kamen, Steve Jobs, and James Cameron, among many others.
Engineers Reinvent Metal 3D Printing
Engineering Materials 10/29/2013
Engineers are reinventing 3D printing and additive manufacturing (AM). The latest idea, from father/son-startup Vader Systems, uses liquid metal jet printing (LMJP) to make solid metal, full-production parts.
Slideshow: Optimizing the Design of Cars & Planes
Engineering Materials 10/25/2013
Sophisticated optimization software turns out to be a secret weapon behind aerospace and automotive companies' ability to successfully incorporate new materials like carbon composites into their designs. It's also behind several other innovations in aerospace and automotive design.
Growing Need for Optimization, Simulation in Design Process
The growing need for simulation and optimization in product design was a major theme at Altair's 2013 Americas Technology Conference. Optimization can improve the product concept and lead to new product designs, as well as improve design and manufacturing processes.
Visualization and virtual reality tools allow design engineers to build virtual prototypes that can be manipulated collaboratively. You can swap out materials and store data within the file.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
Autodesk and Siemens PLM have reached an agreement to create seamless integration between their design software files.
Researchers have developed a lightweight, solar-energy-harvesting mesh of batteries that stretches, making it well-suited to wearable tech.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
