Fruit flies are one of the keys for biologists to unlock the secrets behind human genetics, as well as understanding disease, behavior, neuroscience and more. For more than 100 years, scientists have used Drosophila as a model organism to learn about genes, disease, behavior, neuroscience, and more. But in the course of their work, there is a great deal of tedious, manual labor required to classify and sort each fly by physical characteristics such as sex and eye color. FlySorter LLC provides

Artificial Hip Replacement SolidWorks Thomas Jones WPI I found a SolidWorks model of a human skeleton on my kitchen table, so it was time to review thisproject. Every 7 weeks, David teaches an Introduction to CAD course at WPI and corrects the final projects at home. Students can choose their own final project, relevant to their interest – with professor approval. WPI student, Thomas Jones shared his research and models with me on Artificial Hip Replacement.

DNA Assembly In this video, a new folder location is created in the design library is created to allow easy assembly of models. In this case molecules will be created using elements from this newly created design folder. Creating a design library folder allows a user to easily bring in commonly used parts or assemblies into a model. I hope that this will help you to create your own design library folders.

Butterfly model 3D My colleague Come sent a report to me this week on the extensive use of SolidWorks in design schools. As a mechanical engineer, I spent a great deal of time in the machine shop with machined and sheet metal parts. But there is another side of SolidWorks, the side that industrial designers, artists, and consumer product designers use everyday to make amazing products. I wanted to share some of those techniques with you.
