Boeing engineers use unusual printer to create 3-D models - YouTube

Boeing engineers are using 3-D printing to aid in rapid prototyping efforts. 3-D printing is similar to that of a standard inkjet printer. A computer generat...
Nick Fmura's insight:

This video just goes to show you the advancements in the ways possible to present the products and make the presentation more interactive/easier to understand then blue prints with these advances its much easier to change things as well.

Full-color 3D printing helps Nordic civil engineering giant Ramboll extend leadership

3d printing

Nick Fmura's insight:

This website shows that this cutting edge technology truly does work and is making its way into the industry.  Ramboll a 577$ million dollar company who is world wide and designs everything from roads, bridges, to oil and gas wells.  They were having a problem, the blue prints and drawings while good were not doing them justice and costing/making it harder to win jobs. So they invested into 3D printing. Now instead of 30-50 drawings now they can have hone complex 3D model where colors represent things making things easier to understand as well as win them more job bids.  3D printing is truly cutting edge.

Famous Civil Engineers | iCivilEngineer

Famous civil engineers, structural engineers, hydraulic engineers, transportation engineers, geotechnical engineers and environmental engineers in the world
Nick Fmura's insight:

Along with just the average roads such things that civil engineers design, they can become famous and build large, time withstanding things that will put you down in the history books.  To some such as me that is a huge reason why they start in this line of work.

What is Civil Engineering? | Civil Engineering

Civil engineering is arguably the oldest engineering discipline. It deals with the built environment and can be dated to the first time someone placed a roof over his or her head or laid a tree trunk across a river to make it easier to get across.
Nick Fmura's insight:

For those who don't know what this profession is, civil engineering is the building and designing of the environment and public structures such as roads, bridges, and water treatment plants.

What is Civil 3D?

Learn about Civil 3D and how to get the most out of it using self-paced training and video lessons.
Nick Fmura's insight:

CIvil 3D is an engineering software that is used to design what engineers use to have to do all by hand.  Now you can plan, design, and manage civil engineering projects is much less time, and much more accuracy cutting down on the mistakes and the extra cots they'd have to pay for such mistakes.

Nick Fmura's insight:

The United States Military uses Engineers for many things but one of the main things is the producing of new and maintaining the old plumbing systems as well as preventing and putting out any types of fire in their facilities is all designed by their own engineers.  Between the necessary need to always update and maintain old equipment, we will have a steady need for engineers for years to come.
