Misumi 3D CAD library free to machine designers
Misumi 3D CAD Model library
Misumi has announced that the Misumi 3D CAD Model library in CD-ROM format is available free of charge to machine builders, automation-system designers and product-design engineers.
The compact discs contain native CAD drawings of thousands of mechanical components offered in Misumi's 2009 catalogue.
The two-CD set provides users with a fast and convenient way to download native CAD drawings of Misumi components to their PC and import them into various CAD applications.
Misumi's online 3D CAD Configurator is suitable for design engineers that regularly source Misumi's configurable and custom-designed components for their projects.
With this tool, engineers can configure a part to precise tolerances and specifications - including critical dimensions, material and surface treatments - and download the native CAD file of the component into the assembly model.
Once finalised, they can enter the order using Misumi's Web Ordering system and input a part number, which will then become a purchased item and stored by that part number for future orders.

It takes many activities and skills to bring the ideas and designs of architects/engineers to fruition. In this white paper, Man and Machine discusses building information modelling (BIM) — which attempts to standardise the creation and exchange of information to make the design, construction and operational management of a facility or infrastructure asset more efficient.
Today’s successful automotive manufacturers and OEMs must design innovative, alluring vehicles — and bring them to market faster than their competitors. To drive consumer interest, they need to develop interiors and exteriors that are perfectly smooth, pleasing to the eye and pleasant to the touch. Leading automotive companies rely on Autodesk Alias Surface for technical surfacing tools to create these high-quality, accurate and precise surfaces.
Altair has announced that rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing expert Materialise has joined the Altair Partner Alliance, making 3-Matic STL software available to Hyperworks users. With 3-Matic STL, users can make design modifications directly on STL, scanned and computer-aided design (CAD) data in preparation for 3D printing.
