@mrdon: That's certainly a good point, and I don't know off hand. I can tell you that memory issues have never come up in all the reporting I've done on design tool apps, but it's worth a circle back with the vendors to push them on that issue. I will get back with some feedback.

Hi, Beth, Thanks for circling back on the question. I don't think it's a major concern as well bit it's a question worth asking.

Hello Mrdon, Mobile memory requirements vary greatly depending on the size of your drawing file. In general we have found that a mobile device with 1GB of system RAM (not to be confused with storage memory) can open a file up to 30MB. Our research indicates average file size for drawings at 3-12 mb. If your file is larger than that or your device has less memory, this may restrict the size of file that can be open. We are looking at other methods to help solve this mobile memory limitation problem and expect to have a solution this year.

MIT students modified a 3D printer to enable it to print more than one object and print on top of existing printed objects. All of this was made possible by modifying a Solidoodle with a height measuring laser.
Siemens released Intosite, a cloud-based, location-aware SaaS app that lets users navigate a virtual production facility in much of the same fashion as traversing through Google Earth. Users can access PLM, IT, and other pertinent information for specific points on a factory floor or at an outdoor location.
New software from Carnegie Mellon allows 2D objects -- digital photos, old photos, and even paintings -- to be manipulated in 3D using models found online.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
Amazon has its very own 3D printing store, where anyone can customize and order 3D-printed objects. Who doesn't want a bobblehead of themselves?
