Autodesk to Spark Up 3D Printing


Autodesk announces that it will release an open-software for 3-D printing later this year. Find out what this means for 3D printer software vendors and printer makers in P.J.'s post.

Should its open-source software enjoy wide adoption, it could transform 3D printer makers into mere plastic box makers, just like Microsoft did with PC makers 30 years ago.   This could be a game changer in a highly competitive market, especially with lower barrier entry after patent expirations. Autodesk’s move is similar Read More

CAD Model Quality Testing


With 3-D computer-aided design (CAD) models taking on a broader and more significant role in the development of new products, CAD files must flow smoothly into downstream applications. Sometimes, however, errors do occur. An off-the-shelf software tool can detect problems in the design stage so they aren’t discovered at a crucial moment in the manufacturing process, when it may be costly—or even too late—to correct them.

What Could Be Some New Frontiers for Large CAD/PLM Providers?


My attendance of Siemens’ two-day product lifecycle management (PLM) analyst summit in the late summer of 2011 was like trying to drink from a fire hose.

Best-of-Breed Versus Complete CAD-PLM Suites: The Debate Rages On


The PLM world is currently witness to fervent debate on the most appropriate type of PLM/CAD software. Best-of-breed solutions offer the needed capabilities and hence integrate the necessary software modules as per the customer’s needs, whereas all-in-one CAD/PLM suites attempt a “one size fits all” approach. In his report, TEC principal analyst P.J. Jakovljevic provides his view on the intricacies of these two approaches.

Where Does PLM Fit in the Extending LMS Formula?


There are two reasons which led me to write this blog. Firstly, I recently had briefings with vendors such as Learn.com and Xyleme that made me realize that the learning management system (LMS) industry is building up more and more connections with other technologies and enterprise applications. Secondly, a recent article (see Trends in LMS by Don McIntosh) explains how LMS is evolving with Web 2

Actually, for most learning purposes, a learner only needs a very small fraction of what today’s 3D CAD systems offer. Based on 3D models, 3D learning content needs to be generated and communicated conveniently and inexpensively, and I see 3DVIA as a good candidate for this task. Certainly, this is not the only thing Read More
