There is a whole industry spinning up about additive manufacturing becoming a significant part of the future of manufacturing, but the state of the art at present is in some interesting places that might not immediately be obvious.

One such area is in the use of the technology to enable repairs and replacement of parts that for which no tooling or digital information exists. Across the manufacturing world, there are untold numbers of machines that are working every day, day in, day out and have been doing so for decades - if not centuries.

It can be catastrophic for companies when components fail in these machines for which spares can not be sourced, and the more niche the area of manufacturing, the more this become true.

PTC and Ansys has announced a new offering in the Creo product line, Creo Simulation Live, which combines PTC’s flagship 3D product development system with Ansys’ brand spanking new real time simulation technology directly inside in the system.

If you’re not familiar with it, Ansys’ Discovery Live technology takes advantage of the compute power of modern GPUs to deliver analysis results in a fraction of the time that they would typically require.

Yes, there are some trade offs (in terms of fidelity of results), but what you lose there, you more than make up for in interactivity, and now that technology is available inside PTC’s Creo, as a new module, called Creo Simulation Live.

Past winners of the 3D Hubs Student Grant have included CUDA by Archie O’Brien, and K-Pan by Paul Kohlhaussen

Product Design, Robotics, Sustainability, Transportation and Healthcare are all new applicable fields for the 2019 3D Hubs 3D Printing Student Grant competition.

3D Hubs is looking for students and recent graduates that can show how they used 3D printing to solve real-life problems in their respective fields, with a grant of $1,000 in each of the five categories to help fund their project.

Additionally, this year 3D Hubs will support the winners and finalists who are interested in turning their project into a product by showcasing their work to a global audience and by providing technical support and advice on how to go from prototyping to production.

HoloLens 2 is glasses-friendly, and you can flip up the visor so you can switch tasks easily

This week at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Microsoft introduced HoloLens 2, its much anticipated next generation wearable holographic computer.

Microsoft was joined by PTC who showed how it has combined its IoT edge solutions, the Microsoft Azure cloud and mixed reality tools to digitally transform businesses of all kinds, from aerospace and defence to clothing brands and life science companies.

HoloLens 2 features more than double the field of view than the original mixed reality device, which many found to be a significant limitation. There’s also a new visual display system, which Microsoft says makes the holograms even more vibrant and realistic.
