Those readying the factories of the future or simply trying to better plan out their workspaces should probably take note of the latest handheld 3D scanner from Hexagon’s Leica Geosystems.

A wireless handheld imaging laser scanner captures 3D environments while the user is in motion, and continuously creates a digital representation of reality in the form of 3D point clouds - perfect for judging how to set out your additive manufacturing set-up, let alone whether it will fit through the front door.

The BLK2GO’s compact and handheld design allows a much greater degree of mobility, and a simple, one-button operation and a lightweight design, it is easy to use for professional and casual users alike.

BMW’s concept iNext could be among the first vehicles to benefit from the partnership

BMW Group has announced it is leveraging Ansys’ engineering simulation solutions and experience to help speed up the development of autonomous driving systems.

The companies have partnered to create the industry’s ‘first holistic simulation tool chain’ for developing Autonomous Vehicle (AV) technologies, with the first vehicle launch expected in just two years.

Before AVs can take to the roads in large numbers though, they must first support safety testing through rigorous testing in complex driving environments, including boundless road conditions and weather scenarios - requiring billions of miles of physical road tests that can be reduced greatly by digital simulation tests.

The XM200S and XM200C machines from Xact Metal both offer a 127 x 127 x 127mm build chamber for metals 3D printing, and are now available in the UK via reseller Laser Lines.

Operating out of Penn State University’s Innovation Park, Pennsylvania, the Xact Metal technology is aimed at customers in high-performing industries where high-throughput and print speed is critical including aerospace and medical (XM200S), and for entry-level operators, universities, prototyping laboratories and SMEs (XM200C).

Both systems use a laser-based powder-bed fusion technology in which a laser selectively melts thin layers of metal powder to create parts directly from a 3D CAD model.

Lenovo launches industry first 15” mobile workstation with high-end Quadro RTX 5000 pro graphics

The new Lenovo ThinkPad P53 is well equipped for high-end VR and GPU ray trace rendering

The 17-inch mobile workstation has historically been the only form factor that can support high-end Nvidia Quadro 5000 class professional GPUs (e.g. K5000M, M5000M, P5000). But with the new Lenovo ThinkPad P53, launched today at NXT BLD in London, this has changed. It becomes the first 15-inch mobile workstation from a major OEM to carry the new 16GB Nvidia Quadro RTX 5000.

For high-end professional users – design viz specialists in particular – this is big news. They can now take demanding GPU ray trace rendering or pro VR workflows on the road without having to lug around a bulky 17-inch laptop.

The ThinkPad P53 gives Lenovo a significant advantage over Dell and HP, who can only offer up to the mid-range Quadro RTX 3000 in their top-end 15-inch mobile workstations.
