Alex, I agree with all of the posts below. The new layout is much cleaner and makes reading the content easier on the eye. I also like the new menu links which seem to streamline the navigation process of the site as well.
I couldn't agree more. I am so happy with the look and feel of the new DesignNews.com and look forward to interacting with our engineering community on a higher level. Thank you to everyone that helped make this new site a success!
Love the new layout layout, Alex. It's great and easy to find what your after. The new messaging and comment features are a really and asset, especially with all the layout options (which I haven't tried yet).
I'm also glad you went back to the more conventional ad system rather than the initial spash screen.
Great job to the entire team who put this together!
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
