Designed with the technical illustrator in mind, PTC's Arbortext IsoDraw 7.0 version bundles a wide range of 2D and 3D capabilities (2D illustrations, 3D illustrations, 2D animation, 3D animation and a mix of 2D and 3D illustrations and animations) in a single tool. This way companies can create both 2D and 3D technical illustrations and animations from scratch — instead of having to redraw graphics, which most options require — while also letting them more easily create context by reusing 3D CAD data. The software is integrated with PTC's Pro/ENGINEER 3D CAD package, which means CAD data associated with that software can be directly embedded in technical documents, leading to higher-quality and lower cost publications. Moreover, the ability to embed 3D animations in publications helps people visually interact with and view objects from multiple perspectives, which in turn can improve computer-based training, assembly instructions and online maintenance manuals.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
