Dell has previewed two new premium UltraSharp monitors: the Dell UltraSharp 27 4K Monitor (U2718Q) and Dell UltraSharp 25 Monitor (U2518D). Both feature InfinityEdge technology and therefore boast very thin bezels around the panel.

As both monitors won’t be available until July, details are still quite thin on the ground. We do know that the 27-inch U2718Q will boast a native 4K resolution and will cost $699.99. The smaller 25-inch U2518Q will have a lower resolution and will cost $499.

Dell’s InfinityEdge thin bezel technology was originally introduced with Dell laptops, including the impressive Dell Precision 5510 mobile workstation, reviewed here.

Creo file converted in 3D PDF with Datakit CrossManager.

Coming fast on the heals of PTC Creo 4.0, Datakit has announced its supporting CAD data exchange tools, with many technical improvements on the previous version.

Datakit software are now able to read files from Pro/ENGINEER 2000i to Creo 4.0, and able to convert them into many 2D and 3D formats.

“Since we developed the support of Creo 3.0 in 2014, we have been working continually on improving our reading library,” said Philippe Baudrion, in charge of Datakit’s Creo reader. “The reading of the geometrical data has been greatly improved, becoming even more precise and powerful.

Optimised for large scale metrology projects, Creaform’s latest MaxShot 3D lineup is billed as an ‘intelligent measurement solution’ adding guidance to accuracy and repeatability for parts from two to 10m.

Building on the first generation of MaxShot 3D, Creaform has added autonomous guidance to point users to the right measurements using visual projections with live ‘go/no-go’ feedback directly on the part, guiding the user to the correct position to take the shot.

Creaform hopes the system will pose a serious alternative to laser trackers for many applications, used in combination with Creaform’s 3D scanners and portable CMMs, while it can be used as a standalone measurement device.

Special effects company, Artem SFX, got to stretch their model-making skills building shells for hermit crabs for a property website’s latest advertising campaign.

The new advert features hermit crabs wearing shells with miniature houses on top - built by Artem’s prop specialists as the client Zoopla were keen to use physically rather than digital special effects.

This meant the crustaceans had to be happy in their new costumes, leading Artem to use samples of real shells taken from the filming location in Costa Rica.

HP has launched a new 24-inch colour critical display, the DreamColor Z24X G2. The key target customers are artists, photographers and filmmakers, but HP says the affordable WUXGA (1,920 x 1,200) resolution display is also relevant to architects, product, automotive and apparel designers.

An HP spokesperson told DEVELOP3D that the ability to display colour-accurate materials can reduce the need for physical prototypes and can be particularly beneficial for products with multiple colourways.

Architects can present material finishes accurately in renderings and walkthroughs. Workflows can also be optimised by precisely matching display output to print output or display to display for consistency throughout the design office.

The new old - the Type H-Reinvention and its Bertoni-designed inspiration

From San Francisco to Stirling, the shape of the Citroen H-Van is now synonymous with food trucks - part rustic fromage fettler, part wild pheasant and squid tacos with a pineapple jus…

Yet the original vans, designed by styling maestro Flaminio Bertoni, are mostly rumbling on from their heyday well over 50 years ago.

Step in the Type H-Reinvention - a fibreglass body kit that can be built onto the chassis of a modern Citroën Jumper van.
