Version 14.1 of Dynamic Designer simulation from Mechanical Dynamics Inc. (Ann Arbor, MI) offers 10 to 50 times faster results and improved ease of use than before. The software, fully integrated with Autodesk Mechanical Desktop 3.0 and AutoCAD 14.01 from Autodesk Inc., allows a user to see and understand a Mechanical Desktop assembly in motion without leaving the Autodesk software environment. The user can simulate the complete motion, including force effects, of a complex piece of machinery containing springs, dampers, cams, and other motion entities. For the first time, Dynamic Designer is based on Mechanical Dynamics' ADAMS solution engine, the mechanical system simulation software. Autodesk users and re-sellers interested in trying the software can download a free, limited-time-usage evaluation copy from http:www.designtechnologies.com, or order a free evaluation CD by calling 1-888-882-3267.

Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
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.
