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.
In the past, almost every large manufacturing enterprise had an in-house computer-aided design (CAD) department to develop custom software that met their unique needs. Later, the independent software vendors (ISVs) appeared with specialized solutions, followed by enterprise software providers with high-end commercial offerings.
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.
Our partners at AMC Bridge published a great blog post about using component technology. Below is a brief summary and a link to the full blog. Take a look!
As rapid-fire advances enrich the 3D-printing landscape, file formats have to keep pace to support these changes, or there’s a risk of neutralizing further progress.
Integrating data types in modeling and preparing the model for 3D printing are strengths of separate systems.

Data reuse seems like a topic that’s been covered for a long time. The idea of re-using a digital mockup across the product lifecycle has been around for over 20 years. And yet, today, effectively reusing CAD data across different applications throughout product development remains a challenge for many companies.
Developing an engineering application has never been more complicated than it is in today's environment. As developers aim to meet customer needs and bring compelling products to market, there are challenges emerging from all corners of the industry.

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.
