Zortrax helps maintain Polish Airforce Migs with 3D printed parts

3D printing prototypes is helping keep NATO requirements cost effective

3D printers are also being used to help upgrade Soviet-type Su-22 and MiG-29 fighter jets owned by the Armed Forces of the Republic of Poland, allowing for cost effective conformity with NATO requirements.

Wojskowe Zakłady Lotnicze (WZL) Nr 2 S.A, one of Poland’s largest aviation companies, is overhauling and modernising the Su-22 and MiG-29 aircraft, and is using 3D printed parts prior to the final CAD modelling to verify they fit with the existing geometry of the aircraft.

The rapid prototyping shows any discrepancies between the CAD geometry delivered by the manufacturer and the physical geometry of the planes in the hangar, proving to be the fastest way to dispel any doubts before parts are built or shipped.

The 3Dconnexion family of 3D CAD mice now work with Onshape in the browser

With many 3D designers now almost permanently grafted to their 3D control devices, Onshape has thankfully announced its new partnership with 3Dconnexion, creator of the CadMouse and Spacemouse.

Available for use with Onshape’s CAD-in-the-web-browser software, the familiar two-handed method of simultaneously pannning, zooming and rotating models while selecting with a traditional mouse will come as great relief to those that have honed the skills elsewhere.

For Onshape, the 3Dconnexion drivers will work on Windows systems and use Chrome or Firefox browsers.

The CAD on the Cloud software is now available on Android devices

Five months on from its highly anticipated debut, Onshape has announced that its full-cloud 3D CAD system is now available to use on devices running Android.

Already available on Apple iPhones and iPads, and through a web browser on Mac, Windows, and Linux, adding Android users to the fold completes the mobile set.

The team behind the cloud CAD product are clear that the mobile app is not intended to replace Onshape’s use on desktops and laptops – it is meant to expand a CAD user’s access to their work outside the home or office.

Making movie magic… and blowing it up with Artem SFX

Artem’s 7-axis milling robot machines the Halo Master Chief from foam

Standing outside in Artem’s physical special effects trialling ground (staff carpark) you’d be excused for having the same enthusiasm as the 10 year-old kid stood next to you, gasping at the exploding car ablaze in front of you.

This was the company’s summer open day, a way of introducing an invited mix of potential customers, friends and their kids along to the kind of work they do there - and it’s amazing the breadth of projects it works on.

Some of it is ear-ringingly loud explosions, fake-blood spatters and bullet ricochets for gunfights, yet everything is carefully crafted - including instantly recognisable props and costumes.

Intel to bring Xeon to mobile workstations

Published 11 August 2015

Posted by Greg Corke

Article tagged with: intel, cae, fea, xeon, mobile workstation

Historically, if you wanted an Intel Xeon in your mobile workstation you needed to buy a specialist machine from the likes of Eurocom.

Now Intel has announced that it will soon be launching the Intel Xeon E3-1500M v5, a dedicated Xeon chip family for mobile workstations and laptops.

Intel is currently keeping its cards very close to its chest in terms of specifications, so we have no indication as to the number of cores or GHz. However, as the chip is based on the Xeon E3 family rather than the Xeon E5 it is unlikely that we will see 12 core compute beasts like the Eurocom Panther 5.
