Across the pond Alibre Design makes a big splash

Ironwood Manufacturing's Products

Richmond Measurement Services of Derby, England designs instrumentation and test systems for many industrial companies. Formed in 1995, RMS works in aerospace, medical, power generation and transport sectors. Most projects require the incorporation of commercially available components into a bespoke system. Design work is carried out using mechanical, electrical and software CAD packages. Alibre Design was chosen as the 3D mechanical design package due to its advanced features and cost effective pricing.

"Alibre Design is ideal for part and assembly modeling of close tolerance components. We can import industry standard parts from leading manufacturers using SAT, IGES and STP formats and we can easily create bespoke components", said Bernard Killeen, design manager for the company.

Gadget Freak: GameCube Cop Keeps the Peace

Here's a little extra content provided courtesy of Design News. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Three siblings and one GameCube is a recipe for territorial skirmishes. Many games only support two users. Jeremy Willden bought his three kids a GameCube for Christmas and quickly discovered parental intervention was critical. He initially used a kitchen timer, but soon opted for a more technology-driven solution. He created an electronic Time Turner. The gadget uses a Microchip microcontroller connected to three LEDs and a small speaker. Every 15 minutes, the LEDs change (each labeled with a child’s name) to indicate whose turn it is.
