In a bid to keep you up to date with what’s going on with the various cloud-based services and applications, we’ll be taking a more regular look at each major release or update as they roll out. If there’s one change that the rise of cloud-based applications will bring, it is the need to stay on top of things - annual or service pack releases force you to look at what each contains and find areas where you can change your workflows - when those updates happen pretty seamlessly, that’s going to become more of an issue when they’re every month or so.

So let’s begin with a look into what the March update of Autodesk’s Fusion 360 has to offer. We’re highlighting 6 of the big ticket items, but there’s a good anount of documentation for each release, available in the online help (which is here).

The Solar Impulse 2 airplane was designed using Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform

The first attempt to fly around the world in a plane that is powered only by solar energy began early this morning in Abu Dhabi.

The Solar Impulse project, which has been in design and development for over 12 years, is the result of the pioneering spirit of its co-founders - Swiss aeronaut Bertrand Piccard, who co-piloted the first balloon to circle the world non-stop, and Swiss businessman André Borschberg.

The project’s first plane - Solar Impulse 1 - was a test bed for the complex new technologies, while the second Solar Impulse will carry the mission forward by flying around the world, making 12 stops over five months, with a total flight time of around 25 days.
