Comsol has launched the last version of its Multiphysics system which provides a host of improvements and enhancements to existing tools along with two brand new products into the portfolio.

The first of the two new products, the Comsol Compiler, allows users to create standalone Comsol apps, allowing expert users to encapsulate knowledge into easy to use applications that can be used by a much wider range of an organisation’s staff.

Previously, these applications required Comsol licences, but the new compiler allows the creation of executables that include the Comsol runtime, so applications can be distributed without the need for an additional licence.

An example of the Magic Leap hardware running an F1 car CAD model in the Onshape App

A new Onshape app will support live 3D editing of CAD models, with design changes updated in real time through Magic Leap’s mixed reality headset.

The product design app is for Magic Leap’s ‘spatial computing universe’ and is specifically designed for the Magic Leap One Creator Edition, a lightweight head mounted display that allows digital content to step out of the screen and appear in the real world.

What Onshape hopes will set it apart from other CAD VR apps is seemingly its Cloud-based system and the ability for users to bring life-size 3D CAD models into their physical surroundings and collaborate with other Magic Leap wearers on design changes.

Israel-based LEO Lane is aiming to protect brand integrity and IP protection through its new SaaS for securely managing additive manufacturing workflows - picking up on the industry fears associated with on-demand production.

Once a brand has identified which part it wants to additively manufacture and has established the correct way to produce it - printer type, material, machine settings - the SaaS solution secures it as a Limited Edition Object (LEO) file.

This means of saving the digital asset looks to protect and preserve a product or part design by controlling how it is produced.

X-Jet’s metal and ceramic nano particle jetting additive manufacturing technology is fast emerging from its start-up beginnings, having announced its first sales partner - the UK-based Carfulan Group.

The first 3D printing systems, the Carmel 700 and 1400, are made possible by a unique liquid dispersion technique, where liquid suspensions containing solid nanoparticles of selected build and support materials are jetted onto a build tray to create incredibly dense and detailed models.

Named XJ3D, the X-Jet sales arm of Carfulan Group will join its range of turned-part measurement, 3D printing and tool pre-setting and inspection technologies under the company’s umbrella for advanced manufacturing.

Stratasys enables pro colour 3D printing everywhere via Shapeways

Stratasys’ multi-material J750 colour 3D Printers have been given a license to flourish in the wider world thanks to a new partnership with online 3D printing provider Shapeways.

The abilities of the Stratasys full colour offering have never been in doubt, but with colour parts still not as prevalent as their single-hued counterparts, or the machines as affordable, the new move suddenly opens up the technology to a wider range of prototypes and parts.

“The vivid colours of the Stratasys J750 3D Printer will enable the Shapeways community of designers, businesses, students, and artists to realise their brightest ideas and boldest ambitions in true physical form with full-colour, texture mapping and colour gradients,” said Shapeways CEO Greg Kress.
