Time to Flip the Switch on Cloud

For most major enterprise applications—think ERP, CRM, or even Business Intelligence—the question isn’t whether or not to go to the cloud, it usually boils down to a matter of when. That same clarity of cloud vision has been lacking for engineering design tools, especially when it comes to CAD and PLM. While there’s a great […]

PLM Now!

Stop. Wait. Before you File > Save that motor housing or iPhone case you just designed, ask yourself if you’re about to make your file management problems a little worse. Because, instead of stashing one more revision on your desktop or in a shared folder where others may or may not be able to find […]

Visualization and Rendering – The Bar Just Got Raised

While it’s not discussed much these days, the process of creating photo-realistic imagery based on 3D CAD models has long been part of the workflow of industrial designers (ID). What’s interesting is that this has, in recent years, expanded outside of the ID world and become common place amongst a much wider portion of the […]

Is 3D Printing A Part of Your Regular Design Workflow? It Should Be

It might take a minute or two to wrap your brain around the idea that an office-style printer can pump out a working part, but that’s exactly what’s happening across a swath of engineering departments on a regular basis. 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, is certainly not an unknown technology, but its wide-ranging impact on […]

Cloud PLM – A Big Return with a Smaller Investment

PLM has proven the “R” in “ROI” PLM is a proven way to deliver top- and bottom-line value. PLM helps if you just want to improve productivity and reduce complexity or if you have big goals to transform the way your company innovates. Either way, there isn’t much debate that investing in PLM drives a […]

Engineering in the Age of Software-Driven Products

If you consider the makeup of today’s products, the physical design aspects often seem to take a back seat to embedded software, which is fast becoming the dominant force in everything from the latest, state-of-the-art jumbo jet liner to a mid-grade consumer appliance. Take the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, for example, considered by many to be […]

Cloud for Data Management – The Sweet Spot?

There’s a lot of talk about the cloud in engineering circles and these discussions often split into a couple of different categories. There’s the movement of our design tools into a more cloud-based environment. Whether that’s using a desktop client and synchronizing automatically to a remote server or whether it’s a browser-based geometry wrangling tool […]

Tech-Clarity: New Technologies Change Multi-CAD Landscape

Engineering teams have struggled with incompatible CAD data for decades. That’s because vendors developed the earliest CAD solutions in silos: aerospace, automotive, etc. Often, they even created their technology just for one specific company. Nobody cared much whether files would work together. At least, not at first. That’s all changed as manufacturers buy and sell […]

Too Small for Product Lifecycle Management? Look to the Cloud

When you’re a small company juggling customers, projects, and partners, it’s easy to put off driving operational improvement. With revisions and deadlines looming, there’s never a good day to step back, organize file folders, or even ask, “Are my naming conventions working?” and “Will I be able to find this version of this model if […]

Navigating the New Frontier of Product Complexity

Complexity is the new normal for most engineers. From the sensors and embedded software now liberally baked into smarter products to the new materials and freeform shapes associated with light weighting efforts, engineers are faced with daily challenges that call for deeper, more thoughtful design exploration. It wasn’t long ago when cranking out a couple […]
