Surf 3.0 surface modeling software features three new modules which enable virtual modeling and allow the user to move between virtual and physical modeling. This gives the design team flexibility to resolve a design issue in the medium they prefer. The Surf Scan module allows the user to handle dense, ordered, or random point clouds generated by automatic laser and photo digitizers. The Surf Grid module allows Surf to be interfaced with grid-based applications. The Surf Synergy module allows the user to remotely collaborate with another Surf user through a TCP/IP connection.

Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
