Every year companies launch their best new innovations at South by Southwest (SXSW). 2016 was no exception. Virtual and augmented reality products were heavily represented. As were many products that address the question “why don’t we have those yet?”Read More
How many times have you seen a new product design or solution to a design issue and thought, “Why didn’t I think of that?” Sometimes you may feel stuck in a rut when it comes to new ideas or solutions.
Fortunately, idea generation is a skill that you can learn and practice. It’s not some inborn talent that only some people have. Opening your mind just requires looking at things in a new way. But, how do you do that? Read on for a process you can use to spur more ideas—and excitement—in your CAD work!Read More
If you’re like most CAD engineers, you need to get your projects done, but you want to do so as easily, enjoyably and comfortably as possible.
That’s why we’re thrilled to unveil the newest member of our SpaceMouse family: SpaceMouse Enterprise. Easier to use than the entry level SpaceNavigator yet packing more muscle than the all-conquering SpaceMouse Pro!
It’s like having the full suite of your favorite apps on your smar
tphone: you never knew you needed them, and now you can’t live without them.
“In the last few years we’ve gained even more insight into the needs of today’s design professionals. Based on that input, we developed the SpaceMouse Enterprise to provide the most advanced 3D input device for professional CAD users to date,” says Antonio Pascucci, 3Dconnexion’s vice president of product development.
“This powerful but easy-to-use tool provides much-requested new features, taking a CAD user’s ‘two-handed power’ workflow to a completely new level.”Read More

Imagine you just bought a brand new HDTV. It’s the latest model with the biggest and best screen possible. You’ve hooked it up with the best cable package with more than 500 channels. You paid a pretty penny for it, but it’s worth it. You go to pick up the remote and you’re only option for choosing a channel is to scroll up or down (through 500 channels). It’s not the most pleasant experience.Read More
3D Robotics is teaming with Autodesk to create safer solutions for architecture, engineering and construction professionals. 3D Robotics will be incorporating products like Autodesk’s Forge Platform, ReCap and A360 with its drones.
Field professionals will be able to use the drones to perform inspections, surveys and scans of hard-to-reach areas like tall towers. The drones will capture data that will be processed in the cloud for download by the field workers.Read More
A dog might be man’s best friend at home, but what is an engineer’s best friend at work? We’re willing to bet it’s a 3D mouse. That’s not so crazy when you think about it. Let’s look at the traits of a best friend – maybe you’re lucky enough to have both!Read More
It’s not always easy to find creativity, motivation or purpose in the work you do every day. That’s why dedicating the time to learn new skills is of critical importance.Read More
