The MathWorks has just released two new versions of its software: MATLAB 7 and Simulink 6. Intended for technical computing, MATLAB 7 features built-in support for integer and single-precision floating-point math. It also includes MATLAB Compiler, which helps developers run more MATLAB applications independently of MATLAB itself. Simulink 6 provides model-based design for large-model applications and several design teams. Made to improve the design, implementation, and verification processes, the software may eliminate manual coding errors and offer faster development cycle times.

An in-depth survey of 700 current and future users of 3D printing holds few surprises, but results emphasize some major trends already in progress. Two standouts are the big growth in end-use parts and metal additive manufacturing (AM) most respondents expect.
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.
