This presentation will explore the history and theory of optimisation all the way back to its roots in biomimicry and Wolff’s Law from the 19th century that states that a bone in a healthy person or animal will adapt to the loads under which it is placed.

Giving real-world applications to build an understanding of how designers can use optimisation tools today to improve almost every structural part or product that they create, SolidThinking’s Tony Gray imparts some of his engineering intuition.

It’s exciting that so many people are founding hardware startups, especially in the UK where software and services dominate.

The internet makes the required knowledge, finance and early customers more accessible than ever before, but most hardware startup veterans will admit that the failure rate is extremely high and most founders are naïve about the challenges they will face and ignorant of the best strategies.

In this talk, Managing Director of the Central Research Laboratory Mat Hunter shares his insights about how the Central Research Laboratory, London’s first purpose-built hardware accelerator, improves the success rate of resident ventures.

Is VR technology applicable to small scale product design? It’s a question that’s been thrown at us over the last few months, so at our UK DEVELOP3D LIVE event we put together a panel of industry experts to answer this and many other common questions about the tech.

How realistic is it that we’ll see a fully blown CAD program in VR? When will geometry optimisation for CAD in VR stop being a problem? All these and more are answered, and it’s all rather positive.
