Engineering services come in multiple formats that can benefit almost any industry. While the word "engineer" typically brings to mind pictures of complex coding and mechanical designs, the scope of what an engineer can do is much broader. From the use of scanning and printing devices to project management services, companies can benefit in a variety of ways from engineering services.

We have recently seen the release of several new additive manufacturing technologies from Stratasys that are going to have a major impact on both the R&D and manufacturing world. There are 3D printers for every step of the production cycle – from design to prototype, tooling and molding, assembly jigs and test fixtures, to even end-use production. Over the past few years, 3D printing has quickly evolved from being strictly a tool for rapid prototyping into a legitimate option for mass production. No single technology is the best for all steps of the manufacturing process but every industrial-grade additive technology excels at something. While the technologies have been advancing leaps and bounds, it’s taken much longer for the software that controls these machines to keep up.

This next series of blogs about tools available on the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform will focus on SOLIDWORKS Cloud. SOLIDWORKS Cloud is a set of tools that allows us to complete a vast majority of our design work right inside a web browser. There is no need for expensive high-end hardware or CAD workstations. This opens design workstation possibilities to multiple platforms and devices. Mac, PC, Linux, iOS and Android are all now options for an engineering PC. Unlike virtually hosted machines, these are tools designed, built and run as browser-based applications. This eliminates the need for installing applications. You simply open a browser and start to design.
