SolidWorks 2006 3D CAD software saves time by letting users work in drawings without having to wait for drawing views or system graphics to be recalculated. The '06 edition also lets engineers working in 2D environments pan, rotate, zoom, and otherwise visualize parts and assemblies in 3D without having to leave their 2D environment. The software's 3D sketch capabilities have been improved, to allow creation of more precise shapes in fewer steps, and users also have more options available for defining an assembly's on-screen appearance. SolidWorks features COSMOSXpress and MoldflowXpress for testing and validating designs, eDrawings for communicating design information, and 3D ContentCentral for access to components in online catalogs.

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
