Bringing 2D into the Next Dimension

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

As part of GoEngineer’s re-branding campaign from a few years back, the technical support team gained a face: Joe Engineer.

Being a company that provides SOLIDWORKS and Stratasys products, services, and support, I recently decided to use these tools to take Joe from 2D to 3D.

Imagine taking a flat 2D drawing of a cartoon character and trying to bring it to life! How? Well, the answer is one face at a time (pun intended)!

3D Printed Girl Scout Cookie

Girl Scout SOCAL (1)

Our Santa Ana, CA office was buzzing with fun and giggles last week. We welcomed an Irvine Girl Scout Troop to get an insider’s look at custom design and 3D printers in action. 11 troop members, aged only 8-9yrs old, were all but shy when it came to being an engineer for the day. They excitedly listened to Jeff Jordan, Applications Engineer at GoEngineer, as he walked them through the SOLIDWORKS design steps of creating a custom Girl Scout cookie. They got their design inspiration from a favorite cookie, the Thin Mint, then added the Girl Scout logo for fun.

One of history’s largest generations is exiting the workplace in droves as the Baby-boomers retire.  Over the next 10 years, there will be a huge hole left in our manufacturing and engineering industries.  Many of the skills and knowledge that were taught to the baby boomers are no longer present in our education system – things have changed!

3D Printing Has Payback for Companies of ALL Sizes

Monday, December 1st, 2014

Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Airbus, Northrop Grumman—there is a good chance you recognize all of these names as aerospace and defense powerhouses.

If there is one common trend amongst all of these companies, it is their embracement of 3D printing (3DP) as a legitimate manufacturing tool. Alongside the automotive industry, aerospace and defense industries have been the driving forces behind 3DP’s revolutionary growth.

Aerospace & defense companies are using additive manufacturing increasingly for tooling and end-use parts.

As it turns out the benefits of 3DP are quite universal so what works for large, multi-national corporations can also work for much smaller widget-makers and everyone in-between.
