The Mcor Iris HD adds better colour definition to its 3D printed parts


New tweaks to the Mcor Iris machine see it add high-definition colour and detailing to its colour 3D prints, as well as new cost savings to its paper-based process.

Built on new algorithms and with a newly designed carbide cutting tip, the Iris HD should offer better full-colour detail and text on 3D printed models - aiming to give a photorealistic appearance around the full geometry of the model.

The latest Mcor technology is said to use less ink, which when combined with the new longer-lasting cutting tip, is said to deliver a 20 per cent reduction in the cost to 3D print a model.

The User Interfaces of established products like Autodesk Inventor (top left) are vastly different to next gen tools like Autodesk ReCap (bottom right).

Autodesk is working on delivering a universal user experience for all of its 100+ products with the development being led by Maria Giudice, former Facebook director of product design.

“I really want to focus on experiences here,” said Giudice, now vice president of experience design at Autodesk, in a recent interview with Fast Company.

“You know, Autodesk has over 100 products, most of which have come in through acquisitions, so there’s no consistent user experience across our products. I want to get Autodesk thinking about that entire chain of experience, and create a universal language for our UX.”

AMD is going after a slice of the professional design visualisation market with its new GPU-optimised FireRender plug-in. The physically correct material and rendering technology, designed to deliver interactive ray trace rendering functionality inside major design and manufacturing applications, is due to be released later this year.

AMD told DEVELOP3D that one of the stand-out features of FireRender is performance. The plug-in is optimised for AMD’s FirePro W-Series GPUs and can scale across one or more GPUs. However, as it is based on the open compute standard OpenCL, AMD says the plug-in will also run on many different types of processors.

ESI has acquired Amoeba Technologies for its CFD simulation tool Presto

ESI has announced that it has acquired Amoeba Technologies, and its key software Presto, to add to its simulation software portfolio.

Presto is focussed on the electronics market and is seen by ESI as its means to expand its Computational Flow Dynamics (CFD) market and specifically, to the dynamic electronics cooling market.

One of Presto’s major advantages is a customisable infrastructure interface that can allow unique design workflows, making large-scale parametric design space exploration possible in less time and cost when compared to conventional methods.
