By Brendan Conley, Marketing Specialist - Cimquest Inc. Last month, Fashion Week emerged on the streets of New York City, presenting the top new trends, fads, and style movements of the industry. Cimquest and Stratasys partook in this year’s excitement by exhibiting at Style X, an experiential platform which showcases contemporary companies who blend fashion with new technology. The venue included a Design Leadership Panel, featuring avant-garde designers and innovators driving change in the industry. The Panel focused on 3D printing and other emerging processes that can potentially complement traditional production methods. In fashion, 3D printing can be used as a tool to fabricate conceptual designs and even assist in final production. At Style X we had a variety of parts on display, most notably prototypes printed through PolyJet technology. PolyJet is great for clothing items due to its multi-color/multi material capability. You can create things like realistic sneaker prototypes in a blend of rubber-like and rigid materials, or alluring jewelry with detailed textures. Full color 3D models transform 2D concepts into realistic tangible prototypes. They offer designers a detailed perspective early on in the design process, making it easier to revise and progress. 3D scanning [...]
CNC Software recently announced the Mastercam Tech Exchange. This is a new online portal for registered and linked Mastercam customers to download sample files, tool libraries, and posts.

Auto racing can be a fun and exhilarating sport. Reveled by dedicated fans and casual enthusiasts alike, the rapid acceleration, extreme speeds, and powerful roaring of engines delivers a rush of excitement unlike any other event. This year, Cimquest joined in the excitement through our sponsorship of Villanova University’s Formula SAE team, known as Nova Racing. Using 3D printing, we were able to help print a racing part designed by the team’s student engineers. This part was used in their final car design for the 2016 Formula SAE competition at Michigan International Speedway. The Formula SAE competition offers college and university students the opportunity to practice real world systems engineering through the design, fabrication, assembly and testing of formula-style race cars. Each year teams from over 100 institutions compete, working under the assumption that a manufacturing firm has hired them to develop a prototype race car for evaluation as a production item. Cars are judged in a series of static and dynamic events, including design, cost presentation, acceleration, autocross, skid-pad and endurance. Nova Racing has been competing in FSAE since 2008, building high performance cars from the ground up. The team encompasses a bright group of 25+ Undergraduate and Graduate [...]
