Beyond 3D Podcast: How Big Data, AI, Machine Learning and Other Tech is Driving the Future of Retail

Posted by Tyler Barnes on Jul 17, 2019 6:50:25 PM

This episode of Beyond 3D talks about an industry we’ve never touched on before – the retail space, and the kind of technology being used to drive everything from the construction of a space, the layout of products, which products are sold in the store and where they are placed, to the supply chain. We talk with Guy Moates, a Director with C A Design Services from the UK.

Did you know that the retail industry has historically been very early adopters of new technology and the use of big data?  What can other industries learn from retail? And after listening to this podcast, you will never enter a store with the same mindset again.

Beyond 3D Podcast: Let’s Stop Talking About BIM

Posted by Tyler Barnes on Jun 14, 2019 4:50:36 PM

In this episode of Beyond 3D we talk about the misconceptions of BIM and how that has hindered adoption.  Mike Shilton is a qualified landscaper architect and also the Product Director at Keysoft Solutions. We have a frank discussion about how we should think and talk about implementing 3D modeling, digital construction and all the different aspects of BIM to make it less intimidating.

“We tend to talk more about digital construction now, as the term and exchanging data between different parties requires you to do that through standard protocols exchange points. Those are the bits that are BIM. Those are the bits that define how we transfer the data, we communicate with each other.”

The Rise of the Product Innovation Platform

Posted by Jenny Ferello on May 24, 2019 11:54:10 AM

The age of the product innovation platform is upon us. What is a product innovation platform?
And can it really “revolutionize” the way we do business?

Product Innovation Platform Image

Let’s start by defining the term “platform” in today’s engineering space. In the computer world, a
platform has long been defined as a complete programming and runtime environment. The term
has expanded beyond hardware to be a group of technologies that are used as the foundation
upon which other applications, processes or technologies are developed – a cloud service like
AWS or Azure, your smartphone or another device.

Custom Manufacturing Via the Cloud

Posted by Dave Opsahl on May 21, 2019 3:11:28 PM

How web-based CAD can be the “easy button” for industrial equipment design.

Designing and manufacturing a custom piece of tooling or industrial equipment has never been a particularly speedy process, often taking weeks or month from design to delivery.

But what if you could design a piece on a Monday, hit the order button on Tuesday, and have it arrive at your door on Wednesday—all the while knowing that your intellectual property is secure, and that you are guaranteed to be working from the correct version of the underlying components?

Visualizing Big Data in Manufacturing

Posted by Dave Opsahl on May 6, 2019 2:55:12 PM

It is critical for large and small manufacturers to be able to utilize data to make smart design decisions.

The world is awash is a sea of data. It's estimated that we're producing 2.5 quintillion bytes of data daily. (For perspective, a quintillion is a 1 with 18 zeroes after it, which officially puts the big in big data).

With the amount of information now being generated, it is critical for manufacturing companies to come up with a strategy for how best to consume and act upon all this data. And while it'd be easy to think that data strategy is something for the Boeings and General Motors of the world, make no mistake: it is essential for big and small manufacturers alike.
