FIRST Team Profile: The Power Hawks from Edgewater, Maryland

The FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) organization is all about helping students get involved with science and technology. And at PTC, we’re a big fan of that mission. Through robotics completion like the FIRST Tech Challenge and the FIRST Robotics completion bright teams of young people from all over the world […]

cadalyst: Robot Designers Take Cues from Nature

“In the world of biomimetics, scientists and engineers model their creations after living creatures. Biomimetic robots are as diverse as their biological inspirations, which include everything from insects to fish. Boston Engineering’s BIOSwimmer unmanned underwater vehicle (UUV), for example, is a robotic tuna. Like Chung’s robotic falcon, the BIOSwimmer was designed to mimic the locomotion […]

Design World: 3D Scanning and Printing Used to Retrofit Lotus 340R

“While some companies are promising an entire car made of 3D-printed parts, C.ideas, a rapid prototyping company, is using 3D scanning and printing technologies to create and manufacture replacement parts for rare vehicles. The company used scanning, software and printing products from 3D Systems to produce more than 40 replacement components for a Lotus 340R, […]

New Life for the World’s Longest Fence with PTC Solutions

In this article, we’re going to talk about a British device manufacturer and how its R&D team uses PTC products to enhance innovation. But first let’s talk about the problem with dingoes. Dingoes are large, wild dogs introduced into Australia from Asia and India thousands of years ago. And while the predator keeps populations of […]

Product Lifecycle Stories: Girl Gets New Pink & Teal Hand with 3D Printing

“When his high school in Hudson, Massachusetts got a new MakerBot Replicator 2X 3D printer, engineering instructor Ryan Dailey could hardly wait to use it. He’d worked on small 3D printing projects with his students in the past and wanted to move on to something more ambitious. But what started out as simply a “cool project” turned […]

Designing Gear Boxes for Stealth Ships with PTC Creo

In 1999, the Indian Navy ordered a set of warships. The 5000-ton stealth frigates would incorporate technology to hide their thermal and acoustic signature. They would accommodate a crew of up to 250. And, for the first time ever, they would be designed and manufactured domestically. The new Shivalik class of ships incorporated many more […]

The University of Tokyo Researchers Advance Development of Total Artificial Heart with PTC Creo

“The University of Tokyo, Graduate School of Medicine, pioneers in the development of artificial hearts, are using PTC Creo design software for the development of a Total Artificial Heart. The renowned institution has been involved in artificial heart research since 1959, and has been performing successful experimentation with animals since 1970. The advanced 3D modelling […]

Vincent Systems Brings High-End Design to Prosthetic Hands with PTC

The human hand is a complicated piece of work. Fingers bend in three spots, they work with the thumb to pinch and grasp, or they can ball up together to make a fist. To make a replacement as sophisticated, you’d not only have to create a machine with a outstanding flexibility, but you’d also have […]

Callaway Cars Speeds Product Development with PTC Creo

In 1977, as new cars were being manufactured under the stranglehold of new emissions regulations and fuel economy pressure, Reeves Callaway envisioned a world in which performance cars were not underpowered.  From his home workshop, he began to produce innovative, new turbocharger systems for BMW, VW, Porsche, Audi and Mercedes-Benz applications. So began Callaway Cars, […]

Parent Coaches Speak Out for FIRST

After reading the many stories we’ve posted about FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) programs on this blog, you might get the impression things like the FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) and other FIRST robotics competitions are just for K-12 kids with a love of science. But a little further investigation reveals that […]
