If you’ve ever designed a custom piece of tooling or machining equipment, you know that traditionally it takes weeks and weeks from design to delivery. But now there’s a platform that allows you to design on Monday, order on Tuesday and get the machine delivered on Wednesday. It sounds unbelievable, but it’s the future of machine building, and it’s made possible through the development of 3D CAD in the browser. Tune in to learn more about Vention from CEO and Co-Founder, Etienne Lacroix.
Simulation is something that anyone in manufacturing is familiar with, and in this episode of Beyond 3D we talk with David Heiny, co-founder and CEO of SimScale. David talks about how simulation in the cloud has evolved, how the cloud has enabled more powerful and rapid simulation, and also where simulation is headed – that it is much more than just the power of the cloud, but how real-time collaboration simulation is now possible, even more accessible and that’s enabling more small and mid-size companies to take advantage of simulation early on in the design process.
In this episode of Beyond 3D, Jennifer Heron, CEO of Action Engineering, goes deep into what MBD (model-based definition) really means, and the steps a company can and should take if they want to get started implementing MBD. Jennifer highlights some real scenarios to illustrate cost, timeline and the process that a company can and should follow when looking to implement an MBD strategy.
In this episode we talk with Chad Jackson of Lifecyle Insights to clear up some misconceptions around model based definition (MBD) and model based enterprise (MBE). The biggest thing to remember is that MBD and MBE isn’t a “thing” or a “product” – you can’t just say “let’s do MBD” or ask a services company “can you do MBD?” It’s a process, and when done properly, companies can see tremendous benefits to productivity and the bottom line.
In this episode of Beyond 3D we talk about services for the first time. And who better to talk about services for the engineering world other than AMC Bridge, one of the largest engineering service providers in the world.
In our third episode of Beyond 3D, we talk with Chris Jones, CEO of Actify, about why it is critical for manufacturers of all sizes to have a digital strategy to consume, visualize and act on the quintillions of bytes being generated every day. It’s not a question of “should I do this” but rather “when and how will I do this?” Relational databases just don’t cut it anymore – the massive amounts of data being generated need to be able to be mined for specific things, visualized and acted upon quickly and easily. The technology is getting there, and is more accessible to manufacturers of all sizes – yes, even the small guys.
In this episode of the Beyond 3D podcast, David Ewing from the Aras Corporation talks about how he and his team implemented a 3D PDF strategy for a project while he was at B/E Aerospace that ended up saving hundreds of hours, and hundreds of thousands of dollars. And it was so simple and effective, that using 3D PDF has now become the standard on nearly every project.

In this first pilot episode of the Beyond 3D podcast, we talk about the most common topics and challenges that come up in conversations with customers, partners and industry influencers – everything from complexity and process challenges, to how to deal with tech trends such as cloud and mobile.
