Think about this: Any time you ask Google a simple question, like who won the world cup in 1996, how far away is Jupiter, or just how can I make my cat love me, your query travels 1500 miles before it’s resolved. Catching up with friends? Facebook says 1 kbyte of a single http request […]
“SketchFab recently spoke to one of their community members working on 3D printable neckties about his interesting design and what went into it. Boris Rabinovich designed the MyTie3D based on a vintage Armani tie pattern that he found appealing. He designed several versions of the MyTie3D, a standard sized tie and a more modern skinny tie […]
“We’ve reported on many student 3D printed projects, from engineering to architecture, and many in the area of design. Teachers and professors have reported that students are apt to become so excited about 3D printing that they become obsessed with the technology, wanting to 3D print everything, even when it’s not truly cost-effective or necessary—it’s […]
Rovaniemi, Finland is the official home of Santa Claus, but something besides Santa’s sleigh is taking flight here. In this land of the midnight sun near the Arctic Circle, Atol Avion Ltd. created the ATOL 650 Light Sport Aircraft (LSA). Imagine flying independently without needing airports. That’s the vision of Atol Avion’s aircraft designers.
One of the strengths of PTC Creo is its flexibility. A deployment can be as simple as a free 2D sketching app or as sophisticated as an enterprise-wide installation of 3D design, simulation, and visualization tools. As an example, look closer at how Certum Engineering fashioned its own unique environment for product development.
Power plant generators. Agricultural and mining equipment. Refrigeration appliances. Ships sailing on every sea in the world. These are some of the many places you’ll find products made by American VULKAN Corporation (AVC). The company’s three divisions (VULKAN Couplings, VULKAN Drive Tech, and VULKAN LOKRING) create products like couplings and drive shafts for marine propulsion, power transmission equipment for industrial applications, and solder-free locking systems for refrigerant tubes.
Located in the ancient city of Tarsus, Cumitas strives to blend world-renowned components from global manufacturers with the latest technologies. However, the company’s reliance on AutoCAD, a 2D CAD system, more closely aligned it with the regions reputation for antiquity than the cutting-edge.
“Computer-aided design (CAD) is an essential tool for modern engineers who work in a variety of professional fields. As companies head toward cloud-based computing solutions and the Internet of Things (IoT) reaches all aspects of engineering, mobile CAD programs will become an even more valuable resource. Here is a roundup of popular mobile CAD apps […]
Software that doesn’t help the bottom line is never a bargain. We all want to see real results, at real companies, before we invest. That’s why we reviewed how PTC Creo users who have already added capabilities like flexible modeling, lifecycle management, and simulation are doing. Here’s what we found:
“As the world begins to come to grips over the fact that someone has already 3D printed a fully functional car, and that surgeons from across the globe have been able to successfully implant 3D printed structures into the human body, everyday seems to bring us yet another new surprise from within the 3D printing space. One […]
