With thousands of new websites going online daily, searching for the information you need can be a nightmare conglomeration of "miss-hits." Because Design News understands that design engineers need information now, we did the searching for you and built a better search engine. Search Engineer scopes out more than 3,000 sites, including OEM manufacturers, associations, consultants, publications, government agencies, and more. How did we come up with this database of sites? Design News editors reviewed more than 10,000 sites. A site had to meet at least four out of 15 criteria of interest to design engineers, including CAD drawings, product spec sheets, technical papers, online catalogs, etc. In addition, Search Engineer will be updated on a monthly basis with sites suggested by our readers, advertisers, and our own editorial staff.
We encourage you to try out Search Engineer online at www.designnews.com.

Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
