To give or receive, gifts are a wonderful thing - especially for the designer in your life - so here’s our annual gift guide for the product designers, engineers or even just the creative-minded folks out there.

From tools of the trade, supplies to get them through a tough job, or just something to appeal to their tastes, there’s not a person out there in a design studio/workshop/shed there that won’t appreciate at least something on this list.

Article tagged with: cad, design, cam, vero software, vero, hexagon

Vero Software has launched a new product with which it aims to ‘fill the gap between CAD and CAM’, a direct modelling tool focusing on the specific needs of machinist programmers.

As a stand-alone, optional application for its CAM portfolio, the newly-available Designer enables users to create new designs or modify existing geometry from third-party CAD systems.

Vero says that Designer, which accepts any CAD file from any source, represents a CAD framework that will become ‘the core modelling engine for all CAM applications’, without a dependency on having a series of parameters to drive it, or a feature tree.

Emirates looking to SLS for on-board aircraft parts

For many years now, we’ve been told of how aircraft manufacturers are using 3D printing technology but it’s not often that you get a specific user story that details where and how the technology is being used.

A couple of weeks ago, Emirates issued a press release (interesting that it didn’t come through a vendor), detailing how it is using Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) for in-cabin display surrounds as well as conducting trials with the same for cabin air vent grills.

Emirates has worked with 3D Systems and with UUDS, a European aviation engineering and certification office and services provider, to print the first batch of video monitor shrouds using 3D Systems’ Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) technology platform. The material used to print Emirates’ monitor shrouds is a new thermoplastic developed from 3D Systems (Duraform ProX FR1200) which has both the surface quality and the flammability resistance required for commercial aerospace business applications.

The 3D printed costumes keeps the same shape and form of traditional costumes but with a contemporary aesthetic

Bringing together 3D printing with traditional Eastern pleating, PhD researchers from the Royal College of Art have created pioneering costumes for Beijing Opera performers.

The 3D printed parts have been printed using an SLS (selective laser sintering) technique from 3D printers Sinterit. This Sinterit Lisa machine has allowed for pleated and woven garments that are as soft and pliable as textiles.  

The costumes were designed using a parametric algorithm to translate a traditional pleating structure which can be applied to print the parts.
