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.
“We’ve seen report after report showing steady growth in cloud-based CAD tools as well as exploding expansion of 3D printing. Now we have data on adoption to back up these growth claims. Business Advantage Group has released its 2015 Annual CAD Trends Survey showing current and future adoption of computer design software. While cloud services […]
If there’s a stereotype of the typical CAD user; it probably goes something like this. White shirt, a tie, a mechanical pencil in the top pocket and sat in front of enough large display devices to embarrass a mission controller at NASA. Think Milton from Office Space – with a technical drawing, rather than a stapler.
In some industries, you engineer products to be sturdy so that they’ll survive an accidental drop from the kitchen counter. In other industries, you’re up against far more hostile elements. In fact, you may be engineering for users who intentionally beat up your things—over and over. Rába Axle, whose tag line is “We Engineer, You Drive” produces […]

More than 20 years ago, Nico Marini, a newly graduated engineer in Hasselt, found himself working for a company that manufactured buses—luxury touring coaches, public transit vehicles, and such. He loved all things automotive, and within a few years the company named him head of engineering. But despite his passion, he didn’t aspire to climb […]

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 […]
While CAD is important to most engineering firms, at Automation Design, it’s a selling point. The company, based in La Crosse, Wisconsin, is made up of design pros from several industries who can help you with mechanical design, CAD services, material handling, and even laying out your new factory floor. “At Automation Design, we provide […]

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 […]

Amid the cotton fields and forested mountains of southern India, you’ll find Coimbatore, a metropolis that grew up around textile mills in the 1920s and 1930s. To support those mills over the years—a precision manufacturing industry emerged. And, you might expect, with manufacturing came a healthy engineering sector. That leads us to Jandia Engineering, a […]

“Lontra’s Blade Compressor, which is its core technology, is a departure from the traditional piston-based systems. Instead of having a linear piston that draws air in on the outward stroke and compresses it on the inward, the Blade Compressor effectively wraps a cylinder in a circle, with a constantly rotating ‘piston head’. A constantly open […]
