If Autodesk’s Inventor 2010 release has piqued your interest and you’re looking for a fast and convenient way to navigate through all its bells and whistles, here’s a suggestion. The firm has loaded up a library of videos on YouTube to give Inventor users (as well as non-users) a taste of what’s available in the new release.
Currently, 13 videos showcase demos, tutorials and tips and tricks info on new Inventor capabilities like Moldflow integration, AEC Exchange and advanced simulation functions. Want to know more about the software’s cable and harness design capabilities? There’s a YouTube video that illustrates how Inventor maintains electrical design intent and reduces errors by importing wire lists directly from AutoCAD Electrical. Similarly, another video delves into the new sheet metal capabilities of the 3-D CAD software upgrade, including its flat pattern editing environment, dedicated sheet metal commands for making folds, hinges and flanges and its ability to define sheet metal punch libraries to reduce CNC milling costs.
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.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
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
