LEDAS-Cloud-Platform

To bring designers and engineers across industries together, LEDAS’ research division has announced they are working on a platform which acts as a basis for developing cloud CAD/PLM and AEC/BIM applications. The LEDAS Cloud Platform (or the LCP, as they like to call it) is the result of fusing engineering functions such as authoring 3D…

Fusion Team - Fusion 360 in the Browser

Three weeks ago Autodesk posted a preview of Fusion 360 in the Browser. You remember Project Leopard correct? Well, that’s alive and well–not as a separate product from Fusion 360, but as Fusion Team, accessed directly in the browser from your Fusion 360 account. Fusion Team – Access Anywhere Even though we’re completely aware of…

Earlier this January, we covered a London-based startup project called Gravity Sketch. Using VR controls, the application seeks to make 3D CAD modelling more accessible to a wider audience. Considering the software was in a closed beta and required a minimum contribution for designers to try it out, it was a bit of a bummer.…

Ask anyone with a wood shop or a giant bowl of grapes and they’ll tell you, you just can’t have too many clamps. It’s not possible. You could have ten clamps–not enough. A thousand clamps–nope. A million clamps–WEAK, you need more. Jacob Stanton, aka jakejake, the gentleman who gave us the Squishy Turtle model, has…

After last week’s model, we’re being extra picky not to print crap, and what could be less craptastic than a foldable mobile phone stand? Quite a lot actually, so don’t answer that. Still, we’re quite enamored with the design of this credit card size implement of mobile phone accessorizing bliss. Clement created this simple design…

You remember rolling out of bed extra early for a week long CAD training session? The coffee and breaks couldn’t come fast enough. Outside of online courses here and there, onsite, expensive training is the norm. Onshape isn’t the norm. And they’ve headbutted standard practice again with the launch of their own Learning Center. Onshape…

Ya know, there’s nothing that quite matches the craftsmanship of a traditional violin… except for a weird ass instrument that is 3D printed and sounds just like a traditional violin. Thingiverse user Sun Gear (I only now a few people named Sun Gear–His father is a music teacher named Keith Engle, so we’ll call him…

Presented by Anyone involved in product development knows there’s constant pressure to get to market faster. However, success often comes to, not necessarily those who get to market faster but, those who are able to iterate and innovate faster. For that to happen, companies across every industry need tools that promote rapid discovery, decisions and…

We’ve taken a broader look at Onshape and even talked about some lesser known Onshape features.  The company is pouring out an update every few weeks – some big, some little – that, combined together, speak to the agile nature of the company and how they develop solutions around someone’s ability to install and understand their software, but also…

Like most somewhat avid outdoorsmen, I’ve gone rappelling once or thrice. After ending upside-down thinking I saw mountain lion preparing to devour me, I did the only thing you can do in that situation… scream while trying to cut yourself free from the carabiner holding you safely 50 feet over jagged rocks. Now, I’m not…
