While 3D printers have been around for over 30 years, the reality of using a printer for manufacturing purposes at a reasonable price has only recently been available. 3D printers ascended to prominence largely on the backs of desktop machines, while printers capable of producing parts that would survive the factory floor were exorbitantly expensive. This created a false but lasting perception in the industry: you could either get cheap 3D printers to make trinkets and toys or million-dollar

In order to succeed in the product design industry, you need to have hands-on experience with design software, and rudimentary knowledge of 3D printers, laser cutting, etc. As a graduate student at the Purdue School of Engineering, I was looking for an opportunity to get more hands-on industry experience and started an internship at SOLIDWORKS. My role in Product Management working on the new SOLIDWORKS xDesign includes tasks such as modeling in xDesign, giving feedback on software improvements,

Today’s products are designed and manufactured with the help of large groups of interconnected people from various disciplines and companies. These stakeholders all play important roles in product development and their ability to collaborate efficiently with their counterparts is becoming increasingly critical. Engineering often serves as the hub of design collaboration. No one designs in a vacuum Despite the increasing demand for more design collaboration, there’s a surprising amount of

If you are maker, tinkerer, hobbyist or an inventor, chances are you are part of or have heard about FabLab. If you are still curious, a Fab Lab is a community space that provides its members—makers and hobbyists—with off-the-shelf, industrial-grade fabrication tools such as laser cutters, milling machines, scanners, 3D printers and software design tools. It lets them translate their ideas into real products and sometimes create products yet to be envisioned by the established manufacturer. With

The filling stage is an important stage in injection molding cycle. Starting from the pellet as a material, in the hopper, conveyed by a screw in the chamber, until the melt thermoplastics injecting into the cavity, filling stage is one of the major factors in the plastic production process. In the industry nowadays, the high production rate is important. To be a good vendor of custom molding, you should have the ability to fulfill the demand from the customer and the plastic market.

Designers and engineers face a multitude of challenges whenever they approach an injection molding machine. One that has persisted for years is the difficulty of getting multi-cavity tools to produce identical parts. While the financial benefit of multi-cavity production is undeniable, rarely has the full financial benefit been realized. In many cases, the quality problems are so great that single-cavity production can be less expensive.

Watch as my tiny car sun visor and the earth’s rotation ticked me off so much that it turned into a two-week project and this mediocre blog post. Image of the sun coming through and hitting my face. What’s the hardest part of the transition from being a person who loves to sleep until noon every day to Dassault Systemes’ newest product management intern? I wouldn’t say working 40 hours a week or even waking up early to do so is so unwelcome, but this.

The myth of the lone inventor is one of the most pervasive in our culture; it is also one of the most incorrect. Quintessential lone geniuses such as Edison, Einstein and Tesla were far from recluses. Many of their greatest breakthroughs were born of deeply collaborative relationships with other inventive minds.

Additive manufacturing, also commonly referred to as 3D printing, is a manufacturing process by which material is added, layer by layer, to build a part. The process starts with a 3D model that is designed in the user’s native CAD program. That part is then analyzed and sliced into in many sections to create a build plan for the part. The popular technologies for additive manufacturing include Stereolithography (SLA), Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), Direct Metal Laser Sintering (DMLS),
