Sponsored Technology Content Design Tips for Engineers: Extrusion DesignIn partnership with Hydro Aluminum
This primer outlines the four key design considerations which need to be addressed when designing an extrusion based product: extrusion function, joining techniques, fabrication, and surface treatment. An ideal extrusion incorporates multiple functions thereby reducing additional components, simplifying assembly, or eliminating finishing steps. Learn how good extrusion design is critical for the success of an extrusion-based product. Read More The ABCs of Precision DecoratingIn partnership with Phillips Plastics
Steve Axtman, manager of Phillips Plastics Precision Decorating facility, tells engineers how to make the most of the company's extensive painting, finishing and laser techniques. It's one-stop shopping for customers that want their products to stand out from the competition. Read More CST: A Force in Sensor ManufacturingIn partnership with Custom Sensor Technologies

We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
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
