Today, thanks to the Internet, even the phrase “in the blink of an eye” has nearly become obsolete, as we are able to type something into a search engine and get results in three centiseconds. That’s three times faster than you can blink! This speed has driven the demand for immediacy: We live in a […]
Every now and then you get to witness a historic moment. Last week was one of those occasions for me when I was able to witness the official birth of the first 3D-printed car, the “Strati” at the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). The Strati (or “layers” in Italian) is the result of a cooperation […]
Students at the PACE Annual Forum competed with Personal Assisted Mobility Devices. Siemens PLM interviews new engineer Orlando Velez who recently completed an internship at General Motors about his PACE experience.
Tatiana Theoto and Elcio Fiordelisio are future engineers at the University of São Paulo. They attended the PACE Annual Forum for the Personal Assisted Mobility Device (PAMD) competition – and described their experience as “mind blowing”. Their school was part of PAMD Team 2 along with the Art Center College of Design, Instituto Politecnico Nacional, […]
A few years ago, I wanted a new pair of snow skis to replace my antique boards from the ‘90’s. I researched skis on the internet so I could make a “smart” purchase decision. My criteria (in priority order) included the ability to rip groomers, float in powder, soak up bumps and look cool with […]
Meet future engineer Arjun Ballal who attended the PACE Annual Forum, where he received NX training from PACE partner Siemens PLM Software.
Connect with other Siemens PLM Software users when you attend one of the free Regional Users Group (RUG) meetings held all over the U.S. over the next few months. These day-long conferences not only present a great opportunity to network with peers, but you can also hear firsthand how other customers are using Siemens PLM Software […]
Hybrid manufacturing, a new additive manufacturing process that combines metal deposition with CNC machining on a single machine tool, exhibits potential to unlock design freedom and transform industries. Here’s a prediction I feel comfortable making: the number of world-changing designs that actually make it to market is about to increase beyond anything we’ve seen before. […]
The Michigan Solar Car Team won the 2014 American Solar Challenge for the fifth time in a row, beating Minnesota by nearly four hours. Despite the wide margin of victory, the team faced its share of adversity. In this video diary, Michigan contends with a faulty motor, tired drivers, unpredictable weather—and a last-minute logistic problem that threatens their standing on the final day. With this real-world experience and Siemens PLM Software, Michigan now prepares to build a better car for the 2015 World Solar Challenge.
There are exciting new posts about CAD and CAE added every week to the NX Design and NX Simulation communities. In case you missed the last two weeks, here is your chance to catch up. This week’s wrap up from Siemens PLM Software contains new NX Quick Tips videos on Synchronous Technology 2D and Pattern Component, along with the next […]
