Once in while you come across a feature or application that you find a new use for when you least expect it. Recently, I was working on a project with an electronic design group and we decided to start the 3D modeling of the complete assembly to start some joint analysis with the mechanical engineering [...]
The saying ‘information at your fingertips’ is about to take on a new dimension. Orion 18, a Braille-enabled computer was unveiled at Google I/O (Google’s Developer Conference) last month by one of our customers, LevelStar LLC. It was named one of the 16 coolest demos at the show (the Orion 18 entry is here), and for [...]
This is my 6th year attending PLM Connection and it’s been another great event for Zuken. Vegas offered a nice escape from the tornadoes and storms we’ve been seeing across Alabama and much of the south. Attendance was way up and we definitely saw that on the exhibit floor, with attendees milling around even during [...]
It’s funny how well some engineering tasks get automated while others simply don’t. There are a number of packages out there to help you design your PCB, simulate how well it will work, and verify that it can be built. 3D mechanical design tools can help you design and model anything from a digital camera [...]
As an electrical engineer I used to hate doing design rework – it’s human nature. You spend time concentrating on doing your part of the design process to the best of your ability only for it to be undone when the mechanical engineers decide their part of the specification needs to change… and therefore so [...]
What’s mechatronics? It is a process for the development of products that are the result of collaboration between more than one discipline. Many people are talking about mechatronics – but do you really practice it? In your company, in your department, in your product development process?
In this post we look at the barriers to adopting a Mechatronic design process and the top 6 advantages.
