You know how things slow to a crawl during the holiday season. Well, here’s something fun to fill any downtime you might encounter.
TraceParts, a digital engineering content company, has launched its first Christmas Tree Model Contest. Through December 31, 2007, engineers are invited to build a Christmas tree using components downloaded from the TraceParts Online CAD library. Three winners will be selected and the best rendered images will be published on TraceParts corporate Web site. The Christmas trees should be designed in 3D using any CAD or picture editing software and should include as many components as possible from the TraceParts OnLine CAD library.
Contestants must send the rendered images of their tree before December 31 to firstname.lastname@example.org. The winners will be announced on January 7, 2008. So what’s the prize? The first place winner gets 1,000 free CAD model files from the TraceParts Online ‘Licensed’ catalog, second place winner gets 600 files and the third place winner is eligible for 200 free files.
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.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
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
