The simulator means the model of the human heart can be used in a number of different scenarios - in this case, for exploring using a VR set-up

Representing the advances of its Simulia simulation modelling software on the 3DExperience platform, Dassault Systèmes has announced the commercial availability of its Living Heart Project.

A scientifically accurate 3D simulator of a four-chamber human heart, it is the first product of its kind.

The success of the technology further pushes Dassault’s view of the future whereby 3D ‘Digital Twins’ of everything will exist to run realistic virtual simulation tests on.

The Solid Disassembly feature can reorientate and lay out all the part bodies in an assembly onto a single plane

The latest version of Mastercam - X9 - has been fully revealed, offering a swathe of upgrades and improvements for its machining capabilities.

A new Multiaxis Link toolpath allows users to link multiple toolpaths together to create a safe linking move between them and can be used for any combination of 3-5 axis toolpaths.

With the growth of multi-tasking machines over the last several years, this alone, with Mastercam X9 Mill-Turn, should help users get the most from those machines.

Despite this tiny image, the viz new add on for AccuMark 10 should give designers a better idea of materials fit and flow

Gerber Technology is adamant that virtual sampling is the future for garment and material products design, as it launches its own 3D visualisation technology for AccuMark 10, its pattern design software.

Gerber’s 3D solution is leveraging 3D graphics and animation technology from open source simulation engine Blender, more commonly used in the animation, movie, video game and simulation industries.

“Blender is an extremely robust simulation engine which allows us to get a realistic visualisation of fit and movement of a garment,” said Mary McFadden, director of CAD product management at Gerber.

Taking to the canals and rivers that make up much of Copenhagen, GoBoat has been set up to provide an environmentally friendly way of touring urban waterways.

Carl Kai Rand, the architect and one of the three entrepreneurs behind GoBoat, ensured that sustainability informed the design and choice of materials for the boats.

They are made of recycled plastic and the engines are powered by solar batteries, which are charged by the solar cells at the rental terminals, and the beautiful wood from Kebony, which adorns both the boats themselves and the terminals at which they are moored.
