At DEVELOP3D LIVE 2017 today Lenovo launched a new professional VR-ready workstation, the ThinkStation P320, which is designed for 3D CAD and entry-level VR - both part and assembly modelling.

The full-size tower comes with a choice of ‘Kaby Lake’ Intel Xeon E3-1200 v6 processors or 7th generation Core i3, i5 or i7 processors, including the Intel Core i7-7700K, which offers speeds of up to 4.5GHz with Turbo Boost.

For graphics, the ThinkStation P320 gets its ‘VR Ready’ credentials when configured with the Nvidia Quadro P4000 (8GB). For pure 3D CAD there are other options including the Quadro P2000.

Virtalis, a specialist in VR and advanced visualization, and developer of the entry-level VR software tool VR4CAD, is already benefiting from the new machine.

The compact ‘VR Ready’ CELSIUS W570power+

Fujitsu has unveiled two new ‘VR Ready’ workstations powered by Nvidia Quadro P Series professional graphics cards - the CELSIUS W570power+, which Fujitsu says is the industry’s smallest VR capable desktop workstation, and the CELSIUS H970, a 17-inch mobile workstation.

The CELSIUS W570power+ is a special edition model of a new 21 litre microtower desktop workstation. The machine is 180 x 304 x 375 mm in size, 12kg in weight and has a built-in handle at the front, making it easy to move between design office and board room for VR presentations or design / review.

The desktop workstation is 30 percent smaller than its predecessor but is still highly expandable, featuring up to three NVMe PCIe M.2 modules and seven drives in total. 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch drives can be swapped out easily using Fujitsu’s hallmark easy rails.

HP has taken another big step towards its goal of an open source materials ecosystem for 3D printing

With the launch of the industry’s first 3D printing Material Development Kit (MDK), HP has shown its drive to accelerate testing and certification of innovative new materials from its partners.

An ‘App Store’ ecosystem is envisaged, with HP marshalling the materials of the future from suppliers - such as BASF and Evonik - already working with the manufacturing industry today to produce end part products.

Expanding the development and lowering the cost of advanced 3D printing materials and applications is viewed as the critical catalyst for the “digital reinvention of the global manufacturing industry”, and given the potential for 3D printing to grown into this market, HP is driving the charge for materials development.

For its fourth year, NWED is becoming the International Women in Engineering Day (INWED) and will take place on 23 June with the campaign theme ‘Men as Allies’.

Set up in 2014 to celebrate the 95th anniversary of the Women’s Engineering Society (WES) this national, now international, awareness day focuses attention on the interesting and fulfilling careers in engineering and technical roles for women, and celebrates the achievements of outstanding women engineers. 

In 2016 the day had a hugely positive impact with over 550 separate events being held on the day (including school events), not to mention it being reported in over 150 national and local newspapers and online articles in the UK and internationally.
