Onshape: the end of Beta
Yesterday was a big day for Onshape. The Team annouced, that they officially ended Beta period and are now in the first commercial release: "The beta testing was amazing and unlike anything ever seen in the mechanical design industry. In total there was over 400,000 hours of usage with 99.9% uptime..."
As one beta period ends, another begins. This week Onshape's team also announced the Onshape App Store. Currently in private beta, the app store delivers Simulation, Rendering, Content Libraries, and CAM capabilities to Onshape. All App partners have free offerings, and the integrated cloud apps allow the apps to be used without downloading or installing software.
They are launching with 24 partner applications with many more to come.

Dassault Systèmes Launches SOLIDWORKS 2016
Dassault Systèmes, the 3DEXPERIENCE Company, one of the world's leaders in 3D design software, 3D Digital Mock Up and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions, announced SOLIDWORKS 2016, the latest release of the company’s successful portfolio of 3D design and engineering applications
SOLIDWORKS 2016 delivers new and enhanced capabilities that will help 2.7 million users quickly and easily innovate, design, validate, collaborate and build, from initial concept to final product.
Powered by Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform, SOLIDWORKS 2016’s integrated 3D design environment covers all aspects of product development. New user-requested enhancements include the ability to flatten any surface, visualize and help validate design performance, more efficiently communicate with manufacturing, quickly create marketing-quality images, and more easily access commands. With these and hundreds of other new capabilities, including an improved user interface, designers and engineers can focus on their designs, solve complex problems, streamline parallel design processes and fast-track designs through manufacturing.
– Our design teams work on complex models and we really appreciate many of the new features and enhancements in SOLIDWORKS 2016 but, in particular, the ease to select with ‘Selection Breadcrumbs’ and the ‘purge’ feature will help our designers be more efficient – said David Herlin, Senior CAD Data Manager, Gaztransport & Technigaz.
– The SOLIDWORKS community creates remarkable products that range from small consumer electronics to industrial equipment with hundreds of thousands of parts, and integrate the latest technical trends, enhancing product form, function, and innovation – said Gian Paolo Bassi, CEO, SOLIDWORKS, Dassault Systèmes. – More than 90 percent of SOLIDWORKS 2016 enhancements directly resulted from our community’s valued feedback, including their need to work faster and easier. As the next generation of products emerges, SOLIDWORKS advanced capabilities help millions of design professionals, educators, students and ‘makers’ efficiently innovate in product design, simulation, technical communication and data management.
The following are some of the top user-requested features, new products, and enhancements included in the SOLIDWORKS 2016 portfolio:
Focus on design, not software
Accelerate the design process, reduce time and effort to achieve desired geometry, increase modeling flexibility and easily access commands with the following features...

It all startet at September 2008. During one of the press conferences I had opportunity to spoke with a marketing chief from one of the biggest worldwide cad company. I still remember, what he told me: „There is a chance and a great opportunity not for paper magazines, but for bloggers, websites, electronic media... Think about it!”

CAD software is hugely advanced. And with the advent of 3D modelling, which requires powerful processors, the widely held view remains that CAD is best experienced on high-end laptops or desktop computers. But, argues Russell Brook, Marketing Director EMEA for Siemens Project Lifecycle Management, just as mobile technology has changed the way we work, are entertained and communicate, it’s now changing CAD
Advances to processing power, mobile device design and software interfaces mean that full CAD software can now be used anytime, anywhere. It’s opening a new frontier – mobile engineering – that’s helping design and engineering professionals be more efficient, productive and effective. The era of mobile CAD allows engineers be more innovative by seizing moments of inspiration while on the move to commence or amend designs. It also promises to enhance collaboration between design and manufacturing, and, supply chain partners, ease workflows to shorten product design cycles and improve customer service. In this article, David looks in more detail at what’s driving mobile engineering, the applications it enables and the benefits it brings...

While I was recently browsing the archive of publications – during the preparation of the comment to report on CAx for the bimonthly "Steel. Metals & New Technologies" magazine – I've found an excellent text made by prof. Miroslaw Dakowski, that I published in one of the editions of the "Design and Construction ...". I thought that I can present it to you on the pages of that blog...
