UGS is sponsoring a series of "Battling Complexity" seminars in response to a PLM white paper indicating design process complexity as the most important issue for engineers. The seminars, offered by both UGS and Solid Edge value-added resellers, address design complexity. For more information on the seminars, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/3855-523.
A make-your-own Star Wars Sith Lightsaber hilt is heftier and better-looking than most others out there, according to its maker, Sean Charlesworth. You can 3D print it from free source files, and there's even a hardware kit available -- not free -- so you can build one just in time for Halloween.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies.
You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived.
So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
