Graduates from Renishaw’s Applications Academy are being snapped up by the global engineering firm as fast as they can complete the training

In 2010, Renishaw established a specialised internal training scheme in response to a growing demand for applications engineers.

This Applications Academy, which is a 21 month course and based at Renishaw’s headquarters in Gloucestershire, has proven popular with the company doubling its intake of graduates last year. So far 35 candidates have graduated from the Academy and have been snapped up into a number of divisions within the company.

The Applications Academy programme equips graduates with an understanding of engineering principles, manufacturing processes, methods and techniques, as well as communication and business skills.

At SolidWorks World, this was a literal ‘badge of honour’

While covering SolidWorks World (SWW) this year, we were once again fixated on the tribes of loyal users coming together to listen, learn, and party - the SolidWorks User Groups.

By far and away the strongest networks exist in the US - at SWW our stiff British upper-lips went harder than a woodpecker’s at the sound of US attendees openly cheering the Top Ten Ideas list - but there are new networks popping up across the UK.

Yet with so many resources now available online, what can members expect to get from these groups? We set out to find out more from SolidWorks User Group leaders across three continents - here are their answers:

Optistruct is aiming at the high-end 3D printing market with its topology and optimisation tools

With new solver capabilities, Altair’s OptiStruct topology optimisation software is aiming at the high-end 3D printing market to help print the most optimal and structurally efficient products.

Its eye-catching capabilities for 3D printing lie in its ability to manufacture hollow shapes with complex external geometry using tiny cells known as lattice structures.

OptiStruct now extends topology optimisation to assist in the efficient blending of solid-lattice structures with smooth transitional material volume, while lattice performance can be studied under tension, compression, shear, flexion, torsion, and fatigue life.
