2013 is going to be a great year for engineers and this is why:

We will see more young companies entering the manufacturing space building on today’s technologies and focusing on improving the lives of end-users.

Big CAD vendors will need to move faster to deliver better products to their customers and should not fight against small changes in their market share.

The cloud will be the main buzzword for 2013. Not sure it’s a good thing for users as the word cloud means nothing to the person using the product. What are the new opportunities that this technology shift will offer engineers? That is much more important.

Desktop virtualisation (VDI) is going to be a big trend for 2013. For 3D CAD it means you can use a low powered device to remotely access a high performance 3D computer. This could be over LAN or even over the internet.

There’s been a lot of noise about VDI this year, but it’s more than just hype. I used it recently to run Autodesk Fusion 360 remotely on an APU-powered tablet and had a good 3D experience. Using 3ds Max with Citrix server also worked well.

Yes, running CAD on 3 HD screens is a lot better experience than a tiny tablet. But it’s all about having access to workstation-class 3D performance wherever you are. After all it’s not always possible to wheel your high-end workstation setup from office to meeting room, to client premises to home.

Dress for success at Paris Fashion Week

Objet… no… hang on… Stratasys looked on as the latest groundbreaking creations using its 3D printers took to the catwalk in Paris today.

Surrounded by fashionistas and people with strange, angular haircuts, they watched Dutch designer Iris van Herpen’s eleven-piece collection for Paris Fashion Week, including an elaborate 3D printed skirt and cape created in collaboration with multi-tasking wonder Neri Oxman from MIT’s Media Lab on the runway.

The pieces were built using the Stratasys Objet Connex machine [just rolls off the tongue that name] that allows multi-material printing, therefor allowing for increased stretch in parts, or rigidness to a highly accurate level.

“While my number one desire is to see advancement in snacking devices for the desk bound, I fear that will be delayed while we come to grips with how to use 3D software on Windows tablets.

Tablet computers have been around for over a decade but somehow with the iPad came the idea of pushing 3D geometry on the tablet device. Three years, a few novel apps and a load of viewers later, iPads won’t be needed for full-blown cadding about. Now, there are the Microsoft tablets.

If played right, Microsoft has the professional market to tap and with it, a future in need of data accessibility and security for an IT infrastructure that few companies will be prepared for. While still trying to be novel and not just fancy laptops with touchscreens, it does bring up interesting thoughts about how developers will improve the way in which we interact with 3D geometry and control the data that drives it.

Oh, and 3D printers; there’ll be some more of those things.
