This year’s SolidWorks World in San Diego will be my fourth. But I know that compared to many I’m still a lightweight, with many users racking up double figures! I’ll be joining the action on February 12-15, representing Zuken’s complete electrical solution E3.WireWorks. The term electrical can mean many things to different types of engineers, [...]
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 [...]
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.
- Still not convinced?
Sign up for our webinar to find out how SolidWorks users in conjunction with E3.WireWorks can achieve a Mechatronic design process.
If you’re a PCB designer, electrical engineer, or mechanical designer, you know that communication between ECAD and MCAD departments can be tedious, and a real pain in the neck sometimes. It’s almost like you finish your design, throw it over the wall into the next cubical…and then what? You’ve probably also learned – the hard way – that reworking your designs over and over costs the company time AND money. We believe there are 5 key reasons why you should be viewing your electronics design in 3D and intend to demonstrate this in an upcoming webinar.
