MSC Eagle Apex… yes we know this is a terribly photoshopped image…

The new MSC Apex release has been announced, with solutions for modelling and validating complex assemblies with the introduction of new part representations and connection types.

The new features in Eagle are fully integrated into Apex’s generative framework, which supports the automatic regeneration of simulation results when changes are made to part geometry or assembly layout.

Support for shell element (2D) and tetrahedral and hexahedral meshing (3D) is now completed with support of discrete mass and rotary inertia (0D), as well as beam elements (1D).

Leonardo Da Vinci’s creations brought to life in London

The exhibition shows Da Vinci’s fascination with bio-engineering, as well as his appetite for destruction

Leonardo da Vinci: The Mechanics of Genius launches this week at the Science Museum, London, letting visitors investigate both the facts and the misconceptions that surround this great Renaissance genius.

As much an engineer as he was an artist, many of his creations had lain unbuilt in sketch form, until being digitally and physically recreated - much of which with the help of Dassault Systèmes.

This exhibition features 39 historical models of Leonardo’s inventions including flying machines, diving equipment and weapons, and 13 Interactive games and 10 multimedia installations showing how they worked, alongside some modern examples of robotics, aviation and materials technology - bio-inspired, much like Leonardo’s creations from the 1500s.

By adding embedded sensors into the cutting environment, it is hoped times and costs can be reduced, while higher resolutions can be achieved

A two year Innovate UK project titled ‘Intelligent Tooling’ is developing embedded sensors and electronic components within high value machining applications for the manufacturing sector.

Based in the UK, it will seek to develop a prototype tooling insert with embedded sensing capability, designed to withstand and exceed the harsh environmental conditions that are present in metal machining.

Further developmental focus will be to upscale the prototype to derive the data needed for commercial market adoption for sectors including defence, space, rail, automotive, marine and energy.

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

Published 02 February 2016

Article tagged with: 3d printing, stratasys, adobe, connex

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.
