Inside the new XJet Additive Manufacturing Centre in Israel

XJet has continued to build on its nano-particle jetting approach to 3D printing, announcing a new ceramic material aimed at the engineering sector and developments on its soluble support material.

Launched as a commercial product only a year ago, its Carmel 1400 system is capable of building parts in ceramics, metals and in the future has the potential to combine the two into a single printed part.

Already producing high-resolution, 99.95% dense ceramic parts from Zirconia, the new ceramic material, Alumina, offers a wider range of engineering uses, faster builds, and more opportunities to manipulate the part while in both its ‘green’ and fired states.

Nvidia introduces mid-range Quadro RTX 4000 for ray tracing

Nvidia has introduced the Quadro RTX 4000, a new single slot, ‘VR Ready’ mid-range professional GPU powered by the Nvidia Turing architecture and the Nvidia RTX platform.

Like the high-end Quadro RTX 5000, 6000 and 8000 announced earlier this year, the RTX 4000 is heavily focused on ray trace rendering.

It features dedicated RT (ray tracing) Cores and next-gen Tensor Cores for AI (Artificial Intelligence) inferencing. The RT cores trace the rays of light as they pass through a scene, reflecting off and refracting through objects, while the Tensor cores are used for AI-based de-noising, which Nvidia CEO Jensen Huang describes as ‘filling in all the spots that the rays haven’t reached yet’ and is essentially a short cut to full ray tracing.

Autodesk allows virtualisation and cloud-based deployments

Autodesk customers can now run their Autodesk software on a cloud workstation without incurring the wrath of the license police.

Autodesk has updated its terms of use for single user subscriptions, so customers can now virtualise and host Autodesk software in the cloud. Previously, firms required an exception agreement in order to run Revit, AutoCAD, Inventor or other Autodesk applications on a cloud workstation, rather than a physical workstation. And this had to be negotiated with Autodesk and was usually reserved for major accounts only.

“This is massive news for our AEC and manufacturing customers who have wanted the flexibility of a graphically accelerated desktop either hosted or in the cloud, but haven’t been able to because of license restrictions,” said Adam Jull of IMSCAD and cloud workstation provider, The IMS Cloud. “Thanks to the new rules, architects and engineers can now set up cloud-based desktops or run on-premise with virtualization like Citrix or VMware. Whether for DR or desktop replacement, applications like Revit, AutoCAD and Inventor can be accessed from any device, anywhere, whether that’s on site, or at home, as well as securing and centralising their data at the same time.”

Lenovo embraces ray tracing and AI with NVIDIA Quadro RTX

Lenovo has introduced Nvidia RTX technology to its portfolio of workstations and has announced support for Nvidia Quadro RTX GPUs in the ThinkStation P330 Tower up to the ThinkStation P920. This includes the Quadro RTX 4000 GPU that Nvidia announced today.

Quadro RTX GPUs are focused on real-time ray tracing and AI-enhanced workflows and feature new RT and Tensor cores. One of the companies driving development of Nvidia RTX technology is Epic Games, the developer of Unreal Engine, who recently turned its attention to design visualization. Earlier this year it became the first software developer to showcase Nvidia RTX technology in an experimental real time ray tracing demo using Star Wars characters from The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi.
