Siemens is using Frame to stream a 45 day trial version of Solid Edge.

Frame, the cloud platform that lets users run ‘any software in a browser’, is to take its end user service into public beta on July 8.

This will allow anyone to install and run their own Windows applications – including 3D CAD/CAM/CAE software – in the cloud. Plans will start at under $10 per month.

The move to public beta, which also marks the arrival of product enhancements and expanded distribution, coincides with a $10m investment from Columbus Nova Technology Partners (CNTP), Bain Capital Ventures and SQN Venture Partners.

So vein! Design gets under the skin to help with blood tests

With over 1 billion IVs inserted into patients each year, finding a vein the first time makes a huge benefit to both healthcare systems and patient happiness

Taking a blood sample is a regular activity in our hospitals, but can be made all the more stressful for the patient when a clinician can’t easily find a vein to jab.

The problem is increasing due to social changes, like tattoos that hide the veins, as well as the rise in the number of people packing on the lard, with an above average body mass index (bmi).

Aiming to make blood sampling a stress-free exercise, Novarix’s IV-eye is a portable infra-red vein imager that gives the clinician real-time imaging of a patient’s vascular structure.

Adobe Photoshop has some exciting new 3D tools, including this mesh polygon reducer

Adobe has been making strides into the 3D printing software market, adding some brilliant features to the 3D tools in Photoshop that are continuing to advance at speed.

Speaking with Richard Curtis, Adobe’s digital imaging and 3D printing specialist, it is clear that the company is aiming to get more of its thousands of creative users to look and use 3D printing in their work.

“Our goal on the Photoshop 3D team is to make 3D design accessible to mainstream designers and artists,” said Curtis. “With this in mind, we continue to deepen and extend the 3D capabilities in Photoshop CC to make working with 3D objects faster and easier, as well as enable Photoshop to add value to a broader range of 3D workflows.”

The addition of fasteners and joints to Inspire 2015 should allow more complete assembly analysis and optimisation

The latest release of SolidThinking’s design exploration and optimisation software Inspire has been launched, promising faster geometry functions as well as a fresh User Interface (UI).

The latest version looks to expand the complexity of problems that Inspire can tackle, looking to model optimise, and analyse full model assemblies through the addition of fasteners, joints (with pins) and contacts.

Several of the new functions have been added based on the most common requests from the Inspire user community, as more users want to use Inspire for realistic simulation of multiple components and the surrounding structures.
