The Kewi Bra brings in some much needed engineering to the larger sizes of women’s bras

Forgive this article for treading carefully, as we attempt avoid undoing all our fine work promoting Women in Engineering with one misinterpreted remark, but: a new bra has been designed.

The Kewi Bra is especially designed for cup sizes larger than a D, all the way up to a P - which, should you be unaware, are big - to help thousands of larger-breasted women across the globe to feel more comfortable and supported in the precision-engineered garment.

“The Kewi Bra we have now is the result of five long years of research, analysis, engineering and prototype testing, and we’re confident that our latest enhancements to the design have created the world’s most comfortable bra,” said CEO and founder Muyiwa Olumide.

Vero’s Radan adds in 180 enhancements to latest version of the sheet metal software

The latest edition of Vero Radan pushes on from being merely a sheet-metal CAM tool, with enhancements linking all its connected product

On a lonely winter’s night it must be hard sitting at the end of the bar with the rest of the pub’s regulars looking knowingly across at you, noting you as a one-trick pony.

As they stare at the solitary figure on his stool, they don’t know about your Grade 7 bassoon-playing ability, or your collection of lesser known Swiss postage stamps. This is, in a pseudo-psychiatry sense, how Vero’s Raydan software has been feeling: known simply as ‘that product for fixing up sheet-metal parts’. Until now.

The latest release of Radan includes additional functionality, ramping up 180 enhancements to bring all aspects of the software together - including its CAD/CAM, Radbend, Radm-ax, Radtube and logistics products.

DesignSense has launched its first add-on product for simplified tool design in SolidWorks

Bangalore-based DesignSense Software Technologies has launched the first of its software range for tool-design in SolidWorks.

There’s limited information available, although the software is said to make a tool designers job easier by ‘intuitively automating their tasks’, with this first version set to be for SolidWorks users, suggesting future editions for other major vendors.

The user interface is stripped back to simplified user inputs, with data entry updating all tooling component properties that make up the die-set.

The Old Furnace was used in 1709 by Abraham Darby to pioneer the use of coke as a fuel for smelting iron, an innovation that sparked the beginning of the industrial age

The Old Furnace, in Coalbrookdale Shropshire is to be recognised with an Institution of Mechanical Engineers’ (IMechE) Engineering Heritage Award today, in recognition of it being the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution.

It was using the Old Furnace in 1709 that Abraham Darby pioneered the use of coke, rather than charcoal as a fuel for smelting iron, an innovation that marked the beginning of the industrial age.

Part of the Coalbrookdale Museum of Iron complex, the Old Furnace is cared for by the Ironbridge Gorge Museum Trust, a World Heritage Site.

Design agency PriestmanGoode has launched its visualisation for its planned redesign of the New Tube for London passenger trains

PriestmanGoode is working with Transport for London on the design vision for the New Tube for London, the next generation deep level underground trains for the Piccadilly, Bakerloo, Central and Waterloo & City Lines.

Not to be outshone by Barber & Osgerby’s announcement of their work for London’s new underground network, Crossrail, PriestmanGoode has already launched a visualisation of its proposed designs, featuring a walk-through design, air-cooled cars, digital screens to enable live updates, wider doors to facilitate quicker turnaround times at stations and increased capacity.

The overall design is inspired by contemporary London, its culture and architectural landmarks, and iconic British transport design.
