It's always great to read about independent motorcycle manufacturers in the US.  But, this article seems more like an ad.

The statement "However, 3D mouse users, after getting familiar with using the devices along with their standard mouse, see boosts in productivity and performance, resulting in a faster, more comfortable design process." really needs some proof behind it.  That's much too anecdotal.

NadineJ, you're right. It's an ad, plain and simple, and shouldn't have been called a guest blog.

3D Input

Concerning the use of 3D input devices, I've tried this type of mouse before and ended up liking them. At first it was uncomfortable, but as I spent more time with them, I found it allowed more functionality than a regular mouse.

Are there any CAD programs that display in true 3D, e.g. Nvidia withshutter glasses?

       I've been using my wetware to do this with my direct brain interface for 55 yrs now!! Sad how so many must use software to do the same at great cost in time and money. They would be far better off just doing a full size mockup and once right, make molds off it. 

 

         I also doubt their aero has done any good as I do aero EV  MC's for a living and looking at MotoCzysz pics on their website,  I wouldn't use as an example of how good a 3D software was doing that.

Hi Nadine, thanks for your comment and sorry to hear the article seems more like an ad. I'm from 3Dconnexion (manufacturer of the 3D mice mentioned in the article).

We get excited when companies like MotoCzysz use our products and we like to bring the story to people involved in the design / manufacturing world.

I understand your comments about the productivity and performance statements in the blog post so if you are interested in seeing some proof behind the claims, please take a look at the Economic Payback of 3D mice whitepaper here.

I hope you had a wonderful holiday break and wish you a successful and most of all happy 2013.

Hi TJ, John Moseley from 3Dconnexion here (writer of the blog post). I appreciate your candid feedback and will take it on board for any future posts. I guess it's too easy to get excited about ones own product line! I'll try to find a better balance in the future ;-)

Best wishes for 2013.

Hi John, I design measurement systems and my development process is pretty balanced between hardware, software, sampling, analysis, and automation. I do not design components at a CAD station, but I find your 3D Mouse intriguing, especially from the perspective of the human-machine interface. As Marketing Director, I appreciate that you shared your product from a business-analysis perspective. In the future, I would love to learn more from your design engineers on how they approached the design of your product, what sort of mock-ups / feedback they obtained from potential users, and how your team handles the innovation process of improving your products. How customers use your products is extremely valuable information, but I would be eager to learn more about your design process upstream from the finished product back to the drawing board.  =]

Thanks William, we produced an article like that a few years ago. I expect it needs to be dusted off a little so we'll do that and maybe have the chance to post it here in the future. Failing that, it's the kind of content we'd bring to our own blog.

All the best ;-)

Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
