Stratasys cements Adobe relationship to make colour 3D printing ‘more accessible’

Around 1000 colours are now possible from Stratasys’ colour 3D printing technology

Having stripped back its PolyJet 3D printer line-up to the multi-material colour Connex3 systems, Stratasys has further boosted its credentials with Adobe’s specialist software.

With a goal of not only streamlining the assigning of colours and patterns, but also removing the process of paining up and harsh post processing, the Creative Colors Software tools are set to launch in standard Adobe Photoshop this May.

It is hoped that further 3D printing tools in Photoshop will open up 3D printing to more 2D focussed creatives - using the same tools they are used to, and being able to share 3D files simply through PDFs.

Siemens to acquire CD-Adapco for close to $1 billion

Published 26 January 2016

News in late last night took us by surprise - Siemens is intent on acquiring CD-Adapco for just a shade under $1 billion.

According to the press release, “Siemens and CD-adapco have entered into a stock purchase agreement for the acquisition of CD-adapco by Siemens. The purchase price is $970 million.” $1 billion, give or take a few million. That’s quite the sum, particularly when you consider that CD-adapco’s revenue is around the $200 million mark - with some pretty healthy growth, it’s still a fair few old quid.

Testing those headphone designs just got creepier

Microphone specialists GRAS produce an out of the box solution for testing various styles of head- and earphones

You might have a flash design for a pair of cans or earbuds, but how do you make sure they’re working the best? You get out the fake ears.

GRAS’ Kemar Manikin is a creepy head and torso simulator that is factory configured for hearing aid tests, ear- and headphone tests and sound quality recordings.

Obtaining accurate measurements from earbuds and in-ear/on-ear headphones can be hampered by leakage and inaccurate seals, for which this model can be used to test prototypes for, as well as testing the sound technology prowess by using GRAS’ specialist microphone technology inside the head.

Virtual Pre-Certification helps accelerate the certification process while lowering R&D costs

Child car seat design and development specialists JMDA are joining forces with virtualisation experts ESI to allow child car seat manufacturers to reach new levels of technical understanding and design

By combining child car seat design and virtual prototyping, using ESI’s Virtual Seat Solution, a proposed design can be virtually tested, to gain information about expected product performance and regulatory compliance before committing to major investments.

The seat and its restraint system can be optimised early on in the design phase; reaching higher performance levels, while enabling manufacturers to achieve Virtual Pre-Certification, accelerating the product certification process while lowering R&D costs and making less conservative design decisions.
