Product Tour Onshape Part Studios You can create and edit component geometry in Onshape Part Studios. The modeling workflows are very similar to traditional CAD. However, there are new capabilities: Otherworldy CAD Software Hails From A Parallel Universe The world of free 3D-modeling software tends to be grim when compared to the expensive professional packages. Furthermore, 3D CAD modeling software suggestions seem to throw an uproar when new users seek open-source or inexpensive alternatives. Taking a step apart from the rest, [Matt] has developed his own open-source CAD package with a spin that inverts the typical way we do CAD. Antimony is a fresh perspective on 3D modeling. Lasersaur Manual Index -- Laser cutters are systems for applying electromagnetic radiation to a work piece. When done like a boss this will cause the material to disintegrate in the area of application. The challenge is doing this in a controlled manner and gaining full control of the energy density at any point in time.

Krazatchu Design Systems » On the Cheap: Supported Linear Rail… Supported linear rail can be quite expensive, at over $100 per rail per meter, not including shipping. An alternative support was theorized using 3/8″ threaded rod, drilled, tapped and screwed into the rail. Today it was assembled and tested, and has now been confirmed as a valid lower cost linear rail/bearing solution. Liquid Metal Printing in 3-D With aid from the STARTUP-NY tax-free entrepreneurial program and grants and faculty expertise from the University of Buffalo, a father-and-son team is commercializing a machine that prints 3-D objects using liquid metal. Most available metal printers use a process of laying down powered metal and melting it with a laser or electron beam. Some powder particles do not get melted, leaving weakened spots. Two products printed with Vader Systems machine. Credit: Douglas LevereIn 2012, at the age of 19, Zack Vader developed his own metal printer when no company could print the 3-D print parts he needed for a microturbine generator. He exposed molten metal in a confined chamber with an orifice to a pulsed magnetic field.
