ESI has acquired Big Data and machine learning software company Mineset

In a world of rising demand by companies for IoT tools and Industry 4.0 solutions, ESI has acquired Mineset from Silicon Graphics International (SGI), for “providing transformative processes for design and manufacturing”.

A visual analytics platform that integrates advanced visualisation with machine-learning technology through a Cloud-based web browser interface, the product has been specifically designed for non-programming professionals.

As a big data visual analytics and machine-learning specialist, it is hoped that the acquisition of Mineset will complement ESI’s recent integration of Picviz Labs - now ‘Inendi’ - and its technology for big data mining.

Verisurf X9 includes major changes to its modules

The new release of Verisurf X9 3D measurement software includes the addition of Verisurf Solids, a complete 3D solid modelling application, as well as major enhancements to each of the modules that comprise the Verisurf solution.

Three main components - CAD, Measure, Analysis and Reverse - which were previously cost add-ons, are now included in the Verisurf CAD module.

This change allows users of the module to create and edit solid models; perform raster-to-vector conversion of images and photos; true shape nesting of 3D geometry for use in composite materials, and 3D printing.

MSC Eagle Apex… yes we know this is a terribly photoshopped image…

The new MSC Apex release has been announced, with solutions for modelling and validating complex assemblies with the introduction of new part representations and connection types.

The new features in Eagle are fully integrated into Apex’s generative framework, which supports the automatic regeneration of simulation results when changes are made to part geometry or assembly layout.

Support for shell element (2D) and tetrahedral and hexahedral meshing (3D) is now completed with support of discrete mass and rotary inertia (0D), as well as beam elements (1D).

The exhibition shows Da Vinci’s fascination with bio-engineering, as well as his appetite for destruction

Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Genius launches this week at the Science Museum, London, letting visitors investigate both the facts and the misconceptions that surround this great Renaissance genius.

As much an engineer as he was an artist, many of his creations had lain unbuilt in sketch form, until being digitally and physically recreated - much of which with the help of Dassault Systèmes.

This exhibition features 39 historical models of Leonardo’s inventions including flying machines, diving equipment and weapons, and 13 Interactive games and 10 multimedia installations showing how they worked, alongside some modern examples of robotics, aviation and materials technology - bio-inspired, much like Leonardo’s creations from the 1500s.

By adding embedded sensors into the cutting environment, it is hoped times and costs can be reduced, while higher resolutions can be achieved

A two year Innovate UK project titled ‘Intelligent Tooling’ is developing embedded sensors and electronic components within high value machining applications for the manufacturing sector.

Based in the UK, it will seek to develop a prototype tooling insert with embedded sensing capability, designed to withstand and exceed the harsh environmental conditions that are present in metal machining.

Further developmental focus will be to upscale the prototype to derive the data needed for commercial market adoption for sectors including defence, space, rail, automotive, marine and energy.

AMD gave its hardware virtualised Multiuser GPU (MxGPU) technology a first public airing in September 2015 and has now unveiled its first products: the AMD FirePro S7150 and AMD FirePro S7150 x 2.

For design and engineering, these server-grade GPUs are designed to accelerate 3D CAD in Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) environments, much like Nvidia does with Nvidia GRID.
