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 […]

Did You Know? Design Reviews for the Rest of the Team

Projects move more efficiently when everyone can use the same language and tools for design reviews. The trouble is that not everybody has PTC Creo Parametric on his or her computer, leaving any non-engineering team members scribbling on printouts and PowerPoint slides or crowded around the nearest CAD jockey.

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).

EUREKA Magazine: Blade Cuts Compressor Costs

“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 […]
