Beyond 3D Podcast: Building Machines in the Cloud

Posted by Tyler Barnes on Jul 2, 2018 10:08:30 AM

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.

Beyond 3D Podcast: Simulation and Collaboration in the Cloud

Posted by Tyler Barnes on May 22, 2018 10:19:16 AM

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.

Why Data Reuse Still Isn’t Widespread — And How It Can Be

Posted by Eric Vinchon on Aug 16, 2017 10:49:53 AM

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.

Beyond 3D Podcast with Chris Jones of Actify – Having a digital strategy for big data is critical, and both small and large manufacturers can do it.

Posted by Tyler Barnes on Dec 5, 2016 5:13:39 PM

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.
