While Kickstarter has helped bring everything from a cooler with an embedded blender to a jellyfish tank to market, it is rare to see a project trying to kickstart engineering simulation software.
However, an engineer with over 25 years of CAD experience, Michael Cornan, has just launched his computer-aided engineering (CAE) software, Fast Engineering.
The new CAE plat… …read more
Many high-tech start-up companies dream of creating a product that will change the world. The product from California’s Impossible Foods is particularly unique: a plant-based hamburger patty that looks, tastes and smells exactly like beef.
This is not just about making soy or vegetables in the shape of hamburger patties. Impossible Foods is using analytical chemistry to research the molecular compounds that give meat its properties. Squishy and pink when raw. Firm and brown when grilled. The key is heme, a molecule that is rich in iron. While heme is prevalent in red meat, it …read moreContinue reading →

Reverse engineering has never been straightforward. Typically, the workflow has been to scan or trace physical objects in one software, then output that data to a CAD application through an intermediate file type.
However, a new add-on for ANSYS SpaceClaim promises to streamline that workflow. ReverseEngineering.com has recently released a HIPP 2016 add-on for ANSYS SpaceClaim and SpaceClaim Direct Modeler. Now, users can leverage the add-on and bring the scanned data directly into ANSYS … …read more
Modern batch solution offers enhanced integration with controller for better responsiveness and flexibility in process control applications
MILWAUKEE, July 21, 2016 — In today’s processing environment, modern batch systems must account for the growing need for flexible, scalable solutions, true distribution of control, and responsive functionality. To address this, Rockwell Automation has introduced its new SequenceManager solution, which enables powerful and flexible sequencing capabilities of the batch process at the controller, offering increased functionality for skids, off-network systems and single-unit controls.
Leveraging a Logix-based controller platform fr… …read more
