UGS, a global provider of product lifecycle management (PLM) software and services, announced the immediate availability of the JT2Go™ solution, a set of no-cost 3D viewing products enabling companies to globally share 3D product and manufacturing data using the lightweight JT format JT2Go, downloadable to any desktop by visiting www.JT2Go.com. JT2Go provides a method of establishing instant compatibility with the huge install base of existing 3D JT data created by over 600,000 users worldwide. The JT format is the predominant 3D data standard for enabling product visualization and information sharing between PLM software applications. Lightweight JT files can be generated by all major computer-aided design (CAD) authoring systems—including UGS' NX™ and Solid Edge®—providing 3D data in a CAD-neutral format for high-performance viewing. Users can view images worldwide.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
