Holophane is enlightening the streets of Formby to energy savings one luminaire at a time

With a new EU Directive coming into effect this week, the lighting industry is adopting more efficient technologies into their overall design processes.

All energy inefficient street lamps are to be resigned to the scrap heap by 1 September 2016, meaning a wave of new designs being worked on in the meantime, with benefits coming from the design software used.

Street lighting designers Holophane recently unveiled its revolutionary ultra-slim V-Max system, which features pre-programmed dimming capabilities for low activity periods (midnight to 6am) that can provide nearly 76 per cent savings over older set-ups.

Continuing the collection of talks from our live event, DEVELOP3D LIVE, today we bring you a glimpse into the future of SolidWorks from its CEO Gian Paolo Bassi.

Computing power continues to become more complex, as users have more simple ways of accessing that power, while at the same time, barriers are being lowered for people to create their own businesses with easier access to knowledge, technology and capital.

Bassi addresses how we must anticipate how shifts in technology and society will create enormous opportunities and challenges for the engineering industry.

Article tagged with: 3d printing, polygonica, limit state, machineworks

LimitState:FIX users now have a choice of techniques for closing solids.

The latest version of LimitState:FIX has been unveiled, promising to be more robust and capable than before, with a host of under-the-hood enhancements and bug-fixes.

Utilising Polygonica technology from engineering software firm MachineWorks, LimitState:FIX aims to make the fixing of wall thicknesses, shell completion and noise removal with a single click.

Production companies and bureaux in particular find flawed STL files waste significant working time, so a ‘one click’ automatic fix, coupled with a sophisticated manual fixing processes is going to be a big draw.

Dassault Systèmes’ 3D visualisation system can bring the interiors of private planes to life

A partnership between Dassault Systèmes (DS) and international engineering consultancy Assystem is looking to transform the development and delivery of personalised aircraft cabins.

Aviation companies will now be able to use DS’ “Passenger Experience industry solution experience based on the 3DExperience platform” - so far, so ‘experience’ - yet this will leverage Assystem’s dedicated integration and engineering services, as well as 50 years of industry experience.

The majority of this seems to revolve around the 3D visualisation capabilities offered by DS to give companies an integrated cabin customisation and personalisation solution that will design, validate and simulate future in-flight experiences.

The new Objet 1000 Plus is expected to be 40 per cent faster than its predecessor

Stratasys is hoping that a 40 per cent speed boost can bring its mammoth Object 1000 Plus machine into contention for industrial use producing end-use parts.

Its 1000 x 800 x 500mm build envelope now comes with a new optimised print block movement, said to accelerates print speeds up to 40 per cent faster than its predecessor, while maintaining its multi-material abilities.

Alongside other refinements and a simplified post processing, costs-per-part should also see an improvement from the original machine launched in 2012.
