AutoCAD WS - AutoCAD Online Tools

AutoCAD WS - AutoCAD Online Tools | Engineering Design - Hardware, Software & Resources | Scoop.it
AutoCAD WS is accessible from AutoCAD as an Autodesk plugin for AutoCAD 2010 and 2011. From AutoCAD 2012 and on, the online functions of AutoCAD WS are built in as standard.
Dave Kuhr's insight:

I have been looking for ways that students who don't have access to expensive cad software can still learn the same things through the browser and I think I have found it through AutoCAD WS which is part of AutoCAD360.

Sweden Just Blew The Auto World Away With Its New Hypercar

Sweden Just Blew The Auto World Away With Its New Hypercar | Engineering Design - Hardware, Software & Resources | Scoop.it
The Koenigsegg One:1 produces one horsepower for every kilogram the car weighs, a first in the auto industry.
Dave Kuhr's insight:

This is quite an feat of engineering.  A 1:1 power to weight ratio is just crazy.  Now I want one but I bet I can't even afford the 3D printed titanium exhaust pipe tip.

ENGINEERING.com | The Engineer's Ultimate Resource Tool | Engineering Design - Hardware, Software & Resources | Scoop.it
Dave Kuhr's insight:

Engineering.com is a nice site to use as a collation of useful resources for the engineering class.  I have used it a few times when I needed to give my students something different for a change.

About A Boy: 3D Printed Heart Model Saves Young Life

About A Boy: 3D Printed Heart Model Saves Young Life | Engineering Design - Hardware, Software & Resources | Scoop.it
A 14 month-old boy is found with heart defects. The Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville Kentucky knows that he needs surgery, but with multiple defects, it would be difficult to see precisely what was wrong until you were in the operation itself. The successful Feb. 10 surgery at Kosair marked what [...]

Design News - CAD/CAM Corner - Dassault Systemes Teams With Engineers to Rid Oceans of Plastic

Design News - CAD/CAM Corner - Dassault Systemes Teams With Engineers to Rid Oceans of Plastic | Engineering Design - Hardware, Software & Resources | Scoop.it
The Eco-Engineering Design Contest aims to clean up the world's oceans.
Dave Kuhr's insight:

Dassault Systemes is the company behind Solidworks 3D parametric modeling software. It is great to see many companies including Dassult do what they can to pursue new ways to clean up some of these environmental problems. I think in some ways crowd-sourcing some of these ideas around the world is a great way to find better solutions to the problem.

Building Artificial Cells Will Be a Noisy Business

Building Artificial Cells Will Be a Noisy Business | Engineering Design - Hardware, Software & Resources | Scoop.it

Engineers like to make things that work. And if one wants to make something work using nanoscale components—the size of proteins, antibodies, and viruses—mimicking the behavior of cells is a good place to start since cells carry an enormous amount of information in a very tiny packet. As Erik Winfree, professor of computer science, computation and neutral systems, and bioengineering, explains, "I tend to think of cells as really small robots. Biology has programmed natural cells, but now engineers are starting to think about how we can program artificial cells. We want to program something about a micron in size, finer than the dimension of a human hair, that can interact with its chemical environment and carry out the spectrum of tasks that biological things do, but according to our instructions."

Dave Kuhr's insight:

Pretty interesting, while I am sure this is still a very long way off, being able to print a cure for a disease could be the ultimate medical advancement.

A South African inventor has built a 3D printer that will work even under extreme conditions.
Dave Kuhr's insight:

I could definitely use a more robust 3D printer in the classroom.  While the Maker-bot Replicator 2 is ok, It tends to have a lot of issues.
