Often, when we talk about product development, we focus on the design cycle—from idea to manufacturing. We know most product lifecycle costs are committed during the design phase, and so product development designers and engineers generally add design for manufacturing and assembly to their long list of concerns.

Profiles in Flexible Modeling: Typhoon Cleans Up with PTC

If your old computer shuts down suddenly, even when it’s fully powered, you may have a dust problem. Very often, the fan and heat sinks accumulate debris (see photo above) and stop cooling the chassis. That overheats the computer.
