VSA-GDT and VSA-3D 3D tolerance analysis software is supplied to Ford Motor Co. as a module integrated within I-DEAS(TM) software, which is an essential element of the C3P (CAD/CAM/CAE/PIM) toolset. VSA software directly integrated with I-DEAS reduces concept-to-market time and predicts the amounts and causes of dimensional variation at each critical characteristic in complex mechanical assemblies. The GD&T schemes, assembly sequence, and assembly methods defined in I-DEAS automatically create the VSA-3D tolerance model.

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
