Rendering: It’s the Real Thing

Remember when achieving a funky organic shape or quirky lighting effect was a major accomplishment that pushed the limits of 3D modeling? Today, those small wins are table stakes as engineering teams kick up the level of realism a notch while expanding use of digital prototyping.

How PTC Creo View MCAD Streamlines Design Reviews & Validation

During product development, many stakeholders–e.g., managers, manufacturing, purchasing–don’t have access to 3D CAD software to check/access 3D data. To review 2D drawings; the form, fit, and function of a design; check interferences; view product configurations; or determine status, they rely on someone else to retrieve the data they need.

Infinera: Speeding Optical Networks with the Help of a PTC Creo Upgrade

Think about this: Any time you ask Google a simple question, like who won the world cup in 1996, how far away is Jupiter, or just

Science Students Use PTC Creo to Monitor Gulf Currents

 When it comes to place-based education, coastal communities like Newburyport, MA are rife with opportunities for area science teachers and their students to engage in hands-on academic study that has real ecological importance. It’s a concept that Dr. John Terry, president and founder of the Gulf of Maine Institute (GOMI) knows well.

GOMI is a not-for-profit organization that has been spearheading community-based initiatives with teams of students and teachers throughout the Gulf of Maine watershed for more than a decade.

See the PTC PLM Cloud in Action

Data management practices in small-to-medium-businesses (SMB’s) can range from adequate to hair raising. Files are often scattered across several machines, sometimes backed up on that USB thumb drive nobody has seen since last month. Finding the right file version for a review eats up your lunch break. Change tracking is haphazard, at best. But somehow, you manage.

Jiangsu Tailong Improves Design Efficiency with PTC Creo

In a challenging market, all companies feel pressure to perform. However, for the state-owned enterprises (SOEs) in China, operational efficiency and profitability are considered matters of national service to the government and, by extension, to all Chinese citizens. Furthermore, as a result of ongoing reform, Chinese SOEs are more likely to be privatized if they’re losing money. With that magnitude of responsibility, these organizations face a great burden to perform well in their competitive markets.

3D Printing vs Additive Manufacturing

Let’s get into the first of a brace of posts on the subject of 3D printing. This time around the block, we’re going to talk about something that I get asked about a lot and something I’ve often seen being misconstrued in more general media – namely, the difference between 3D printing and Additive Manufacturing.

3DPrint.com: Sketchfab Talks 3D Printable Ties

SketchFab recently spoke to one of their community members working on 3D printable neckties about his interesting design and what went into it. Boris Rabinovich designed the MyTie3D based on a vintage Armani tie pattern that he found appealing.
