3D Printing Inspiration
Recently, we received our Stratasys F120 3D printer. We’ve been eager to get off some cool prints that showcase its 3D Printing capabilities. One of the ideas that I’ve had is to print the components for a
In one of my recent classes a student asked, “Can I use an Excel file to create a 3D sketch that can be then swept?” The answer is yes, and I decided to show him and the entire class the
In my first month working with GoEngineer I have been surprised that so many of our prospective customers already love 3D printing and have great interest in 3D Printers. They’ve seen 3D printed metal parts, concrete houses, working hearts, and
I acquired the Roboteurs RBX1 (Remix) robot arm from my colleague Preston Ruff who built and assembled the robot arm from a kit. Let’s talk about this.
In this blog, we will highlight the capability of Stratasys FDM systems to build horizontal hole features without support and illustrate the benefits of using this approach.
STEM Storytime was born as a product of our “Princess Engineers” picture book list that was published a year ago. Read about a recent STEM session, here.
Learn how Brandon Harris uses SOLIDWORKS to power through a kinetic art project of his own. How have you used SOLIDWORKS lately?
Kids have always had some kind of symbol to signify they’re best friends. So when my daughter Marley asked if we (that is the GoEngineer technical team and I) could build a symbolic key chain that represented her bond with her buddies, I should not have been surprised.
Are you starting to notice that when rendering a file or when rotating an assembly in SOLIDWORKS that the image becomes pixelated or hangs up? Learn some tips that might fix it in this blog post.
You sit down at your computer and go to start SOLIDWORKS—OMG! It won’t load. It’s hung up! What do you do? Relax. Using the se steps, you’ll be up and running in no time flat.
It can be extremely time-consuming (and sometimes frustrating) testing and retesting designs, whether your goal is mass reduction, flow maximization, temperature control, or other variables. The more design variations you create and test—intelligently— the greater your chances of finding the best design.
We are excited to share that Stratasys has announced new products available to you. Learn more about them in this blog post.
