Reporting the results of number crunching, as post processors do, is tedious but critical in engineering. So, MSC.Software, developer of finite element analysis, PLM, and related products has teamed up with IMSpost, developer of NC postprocessing technology. MSC will distribute IMS software. It integrates seamlessly with the company's CATIA-based products. One of the key features of IMSpost for engineers is its graphical checklist that guides users through postprocessing configurations, machine setup, and simulation.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
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.
