It’s set up for US military fighter pilot training and top-end automotive designers, but VRgineers latest HMD gives yet another glimpse of the super high-resolution VR future that the professional sector is heading towards.

Optimised for the current crop of super powerful GPUs, such as the Quadro RTX 8000 from NVIDIA, the latest version of the XTAL headset incorporates 8K resolution (4k for each eye) combined with a set of new features that make it one of the most advanced professional VR headset available today.

“Our customers are using the latest cutting edge technologies, so they expect the best from their VR solutions,” said VRgineers CEO & co-founder Marek Polčák.

With nearly a quarter of Brits reportedly considering a change of job or position in 2020, there’s a big stumbling block in their path: digitisation.

In verticals such as manufacturing, the rapid adoption of IoT technologies and robotics means that companies are now seeking digital competencies from prospective candidates.

The Knowledge Academy surveyed 562 UK employees that are looking to change their job this year that are having to face up to 69% of roles in manufacturing now needing digital skills.

There are a wealth of cost effective 3D scanners available these days, from depth sensor-based solutions to more accurate, higher resolution devices from the likes of Shining3d’s EinScan (which we took a look at recently).

One vendor that’s at the more advanced end of the spectrum is Canadian Peel 3D and its range of hand-held 3D scanners.

The company has just announced its new offering that combines its Peel 2 scanner with a new set of software, which allows you to push your scan data into your CAD system of choice, including Solidworks, Inventor and Creo, in a bundle called Peel 2 CAD.

Wacom One - New entry level for pen-based input & display

It’s CES this week, so the tech world is going nuts for all manner of nonsense that’s being launched this week – the good news is that there are a few highlights for those interested in products to help with the design and engineering process (rather than being the result of it).

One of the first highlights is Wacom’s latest product, the Wacom One. Don’t confuse this with an existing product called the One by Wacom that’s a simpler tablet-without-the-display device.

This is an entry level 13” pen-based input and display that’s coming in much cheaper than its professional focussed Cintiq products (at £350 compared to over £549 for the Cintiq16HD).

Paramatters CogniCAD 3.0 ‘doubles speed’ for high performance parts optimised for 3D printing

Paramatters’ flagship generative design software has seen upgrades that reportedly double its speed, as well as adding a host of new tools and features

ParaMatters has launched the third full version of its complete end-to-end design-to-additive manufacturing solution platform, CogniCAD 3.0

CogniCAD 3.0 starts with computer-generated design or automated reverse engineering, while new features mean users can also ask the platform to discover the most optimal print orientation for their geometry and algorithmically generate support structures.

Both are done automatically for polymers and metals as a ‘one-click’ solution, while also simulating the manufacturing metal AM process before actual manufacturing to identify process failures before production occurs.

Renishaw launch Sonic, a new acoustic process monitoring software for its 3D Printing

Published 10 December 2019

Article tagged with: 3d printing, additive manufacturing, renishaw

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.
