The BeamWise team contributed an article to the May 2017 issue of Laser Focus World that highlighted the coherent workflow for optical system design provided by BeamWise.
I am delighted that Taimur Alavi and the team at IVALA are joining forces with VIN the Veterinary Information Network. They have bootstrapped a significant amount of progress and I think VIN will provide the resources to accelerate not only the development of innovative applications and their reputation for excellence will encourage the spread of IVALA’s technology into …
Steve Kilner and Sean Mann have put together a thought provoking vision of IoT and BPM integration in a video of capabilities they have developed as part of Vuzop.
Dr. Donald Barnhart of Optica Software walks through the new bidirectional interface between Optica and BeamWise that allows Optica users to create 3D mechanical models, assembly drawings, and costed bill of materials for their designs.
IVALA‘s canine echocardiography simulator let’s you view a CT canine heart in any plane using your keyboard or the sensors from within your mobile phone. This is part of IVALA’s 3D Veterinary Learning Lab and their mission to “harness the power of the latest in 3D visualization technology to build confidence in clinical understanding and practice.”
Optimizing the manufacture of an object requires an understanding of design options, mechanical and physical principles, and 3D printing tradeoffs.
This 3D Printing Evolution Functional Block Diagram shows the process flow of 3D printing in the X direction and the evolution of the functional blocks in the Y direction.
One good way to make predictions about the future of a new technology is to examine the paths that similar technologies have taken historically and use them to draw likely trajectories. As Mark Twain observed, “History may not repeat itself but it does rhyme.” New technologies solve existing problems in in new ways, obsoleting existing …
3D scanners unlock another side of 3D printing; instead of creating an object straight from scratch 3D scanners allow for pre-existing objects to be digitized for remodeling, repairing, and customizing.
3D printing’s first impact was in the prototype sector of the manufacturing process. 3D printing will not replace traditional (“subtractive”) manufacturing methods, but rather 3D printing technology will be combined with pre-existing machines. There are currently five machines that are most likely going to be the future of 3D printer combinations.
3D printing is overhyped and its implications are not well understood. It will be twenty plus years before there is a 3D printer in most homes due to limitations of the cost of the machine, material, obtaining software and learning how to use the software. Other fundamentally problem that prevent 3D printers being adapted by the …
