How do you negate the fear of the cloud among designers and engineers? Start ‘em young: Dassault Systèmes (DS) is offering its 3DExperience platform for Academia on the cloud.
“The academic field now has simplified and secured access to Dassault Systèmes’ product design, digital manufacturing, realistic simulation and collaborative innovation applications on the cloud that have transformed industrial processes worldwide,” rattles the press release.
This is great news for those needing to access a wide range of academic tools - be they teachers or students - giving easy deployment and maintenance, secured data access anytime, anywhere on a student’s or an institution’s own devices, and eliminating the need for complex IT infrastructure.
The company acquired Prodways in 2013, which has since increased its range of SLA machines using its MovingLight technology, and looks set to continue growing its 3D printing technology options.
“The operational, technical and business success of Prodways’ teams have helped our Group to gain greater perspective of a market with huge potential,” said Raphael Gorgé, chairman and CEO of Groupe Gorgé.
My granddad always used to say ‘fight fire with fire’, which is what got him kicked out of the fire service… But if only he’d thought of turning up the low range on his Perry Como records.
Two engineers from George Mason University have devised a way to blow out flames using a bass tube, impressive enough in a YouTube video, but something with epic potential should they hook up with some industrial designers.
Viet Tran and Seth Robertson are already aware of the next step, suggesting that it could be installed in a cooker hood over a stove, or even operated by fire fighting drone squads to tackle forest fires.

While at SolidWorks World, we were lucky enough to wrestle new SolidWorks CEO Gian Paolo Bassi away from the crowds for a quick one-to one.
We chatted about his first SWW as CEO, the newly announced SolidWorks Industrial Design software (SW-ID), and his forthcoming appearance at DEVELOP3D LIVE in the UK.
“It’s going to be fun, yeah?!” opened GPB to this last topic. Given the interview that follows, we can guarantee that you’re not going to want to miss him on stage at DEVELOP3D LIVE on 26 March.
