The latest from the DEVELOP3D Blog:
Autodesk has announced that it intends to invest up to $100 million in 3D printing companies over the next few years, including entrepreneurs, startups and researchers who push the boundaries of 3D printing technology.
The Spark Investment Fund, which will be operated within Autodesk, with companies and individuals developing groundbreaking hardware, software, materials, marketplaces and maker spaces encouraged to apply to participate.
Earlier this year, Autodesk announced Spark, an open and free software platform for 3D printing that will connect digital information to 3D printers in a new way.
The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) has announced that Naomi Climer, president of Sony Media Cloud Services will become IET President on 1 October 2015.
Currently IET Deputy President, Climer has spent her career immersed in the rapidly changing world of media and entertainment technology from the analogue, pre-internet days of TV and radio through to the multi-channel, multi-platform, mobile experience of today.
Climer has a strong interest in diversity issues and has been an active campaigner for the need to encourage women within the engineering profession in the UK.
Autodesk has announced the release of HSMWorks 2015, its fully integrated CAM solution for users of SolidWorks software, the third since it acquired the HSMWorks product line.
In that time, the company has also released twelve updates with hundreds of new features and enhancements. These enhancements allow users to turn their models and assemblies into machined parts, all within a fully integrated design to manufacturing workflow.
Among the new features is support for the latest Intel Xeon Processors and high-end workstations, like the HP Z840 Workstation, configurable up to 36 total processor cores in one system.

3D Systems has launched a new 3D modelling software, which includes a haptic 3D stylus to provide ‘Design You Can Touch’, while also making models easier to 3D print.
Geomagic Sculpt comes with a TouchTM haptic 3D stylus, giving the freedom to design complex, curvy and organic shapes, with positioning input and instant force feedback that mimics the sense of physical sculpting.
The software and hardware pairing costs $3,900, while the set up complements 3D Systems’ 3D printing capabilities, with Geomagic Sculpt’s voxel-based modelling engine twinned with ‘automatic 3D printability analysis’, checking for common printability issues like feature size and proximity, flagging them so you can make changes before you print.
