The first of it’s kind in the additive manufacturing (AM) industry, Renishaw’s Sonic software allows engineers to detect acoustic events within the build chamber and turn it into data that can help improve build quality.

Part of the company’s InfiniAM suite, the Sonic package includes four acoustic energy sensors to detect vibration in the build, which can be installed into any Renishaw machine.

These act like microphones to collect data so that it can be turned into an analysable digital signal, and because each sensor measures the same noise at a different time due to the speed of sound, the software can triangulate the position of the noise on the build plate using the time difference between when each sensor.

Dell boosts GPU performance, adding Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 to Precision 7540 mobile workstation

Support for the Quadro RTX 5000 means the Dell Precision 7540 is now a viable option for GPU rendering, VR or real time viz

Dell has re-engineered its Precision 7540 mobile workstation so it can take the more powerful Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000 (16GB) GPU. Previously, Dell’s mainstream 15-inch mobile workstation was limited to the Quadro RTX 3000 (6GB), meaning those who needed a GPU with more power (or more memory) for real time viz, GPU rendering or VR had to shop elsewhere, or choose the significantly larger 17-inch Dell Precision 7740.

This new update to the Precision 7540 has taken everyone by surprise, not least Lenovo who previously was the only major manufacturer that was able to offer the Quadro RTX 5000 in a 15-inch mobile workstation (read our Lenovo ThinkPad P53 review here).
