I think we all know that engineers use a lot of different information to make design decisions. And the big question is, how do they find that information, and how do they access it? Well, this year, we conducted some research to look into the answers.
Xometry: Who Are They and What Do They Do?
So who is Xometry, and what do they do? They’re a manufacturing bureau with a network of about 3,000 manufacturing partners. How it works is you upload your 3-D model, specify how you want it manufactured, and what materials you want to use. As you upload your part, it looks at the geometry, the PMI, and other tolerances you specify.
Generative Design and Engineering Ethics: Where’s the Intersection?
Let’s talk about how generative design and engineering ethics intersect. Generative design offers a ton of capabilities to automate, explore, and discover new design options.
Engineering Education Now: Finding a Mentor
Developing a mentor relationship benefits any engineer. Having a mentor is perhaps the most powerful way to gain insight into your decision making.
Is the Smart, Connected Product Trend Driving Modular Design?
So, let’s talk about the smart connected products trend and how IoT connectivity actually might force a lot of companies towards modularity and platform design. If a company is developing multiple products that are smart and connected, you have to think, “Well, what’s the common platform they’re all connecting to?”
Vertex: Do We Need Another 3D Visualization Tool?
Okay, so let’s talk about Vertex. First off, what is it and, what does it do?
Engineering Education Now: The Chief Innovation Officer
The role of the Chief Information Officer has changed so radically some believe it should be renamed, to the Chief Innovation Officer (CINO)
The Implications for Design Accountability in Agile for Hardware
Are you thinking about switching over to using agile for hardware development? There’s one cultural change you might want to consider before you make the switch.
