No, I don hab a cold. After checking out the world of CAD online, and there was a lot to click through, I learned the following lesson: don't judge a site by its URL. Type in www.tenlinks.com and you'll see what I mean.
TenLinks.com offers a cornucopia of CAD/CAM information and links. Among its services: daily industry news; downloadable programs, in-depth articles; daily, weekly, and monthly newsletters; specialized product, company, and consultant directories; and (my favorite) a Recent Additions page.
The web is forever. Which means on a site that serves an entire industry it's easy to get halfway into an exciting news story just to find out that everyone else already read it—when it was posted months earlier! The daily headlines and Recent Additions page will help keep users up on the best of the breaking news, and also let you know what's new on the site. Make sure you click on the Free Stuff link. It has oodles of free CAD programs and FEA software.
HP revealed more of its 3D printing plans in a recent webinar. Senior vice president of inkjet and graphics solution business Stephen Nigro spoke about how the technology works and expanded on HP's vision of open collaboration to commercialize its Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology for end-production, and open collaboration on new materials. He also said HP will create software to help users decide when to use Multi Jet Fusion versus conventional subtractive manufacturing.
The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
