CAD interoperability and 3D file sharing continues to be a pain point for engineers, no matter how sophisticated their CAD tool. It makes sense then, that the vendor community has been quite active as of late trying to solve the problem, albeit, with a wide variety of approaches.
AutoVue 3D Pro-SME promises to facilitate collaboration amongst engineers with multiple CAD tools by providing a native viewing environment that lets them markup, print, stamp and share files created by the lower end 3D CAD tools as well as 2D CAD tools without having to own the authoring applications and without having to initiate cumbersome and costly file conversions. Companies who need to view higher-end 3D CAD packages such as Catia or Pro/Engineer can upgrade to AutoVue SolidModel Pro.
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.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
