    3D Scanning to Gain an Edge on the Competition

    October 19, 2021

    In the world of competitive sports, winning is often measured in milliseconds. Athletes and sports equipment manufacturers are constantly looking for that competitive edge that will put them in the winner’s circle. Because of this, products are constantly being designed and redesigned to find ways to make them lighter, more form-fitting and ergonomic.

    Companies have long been using CAD software to create such designs and utilizing additive manufacturing tools to enhance product development. But one tool, in particular, is fast becoming a go-to instrument for companies looking to cut the product development cycle and to give athletes the edge they are looking for…3D scanning.

    Essential Phone Interview Preparation

    October 13, 2021

    Phone interviews are becoming increasingly common during the interview process. It may seem nice to not have the nervousness and sweaty palms that face-to-face interviews bring, but research has shown that about 55% of communication is completely nonverbal, so a phone call will inhibit the quality of communication you have with the recruiter. You won’t be able to present a professional image or positive body language that are key first impressions. This factor makes utilizing the interview preparation tips detailed in this blog critical to leave a good impression and get hired.

    Why You Should Use 3D Printing for Capstone and Senior Design Projects

    October 12, 2021

    One of the last steps you may have in proving yourself for your chosen industry is to implement your knowledge, teamwork and design skills on a multi-semester final project. Your results will be presented in front of other engineers, potential sponsors, and a possible connection that could propel you in the job market. These final projects are important, especially how your design process will parallel workflows that practicing engineers, designers and manufacturers go through. Honing in on a design, accumulating research and creating the best solution to a problem is something these design firms go through every day.

    What to Do When You’ve Been Invited to a 3DEXPERIENCE Project

    October 11, 2021

    Learning how to use a new and unfamiliar tool can be intimidating. Think back to the days when you first learned how to use a computer. You had to learn how to type on a keyboard, you had to know where your files were stored, which applications performed which tasks, what each button of the mouse actually did, etc. You probably had some guidance along the way too. After a while, using a computer became pretty intuitive, and you were creating spreadsheets and typing up documents like a pro. It's the same with 3DEXPERIENCE. Just like that first computer, it can be daunting when you’re first introduced to the platform. Fortunately, TriMech is here to help and guide you through the steps when you’ve been invited to a 3DEXPERIENCE project.

    How to Leverage Industry 4.0: Integration

    October 6, 2021

    No one likes the feeling of being left behind, and no one likes the feeling of being left out of the loop. The two may sound similar but are actually different when you look a little closer at the effects. Being left behind means you missed out on the entire opportunity. You were close enough to consider an option that was being presented, but now it’s no longer available. Maybe you chose not to act or didn’t act fast enough. Being left out of the loop means you are part of the big group but unable to participate in the key parts. You’re close enough to the action to see it happening around you and just left to always react.

    In a business when parts of the company are left out of the loop it affects efficiency, speed, and ultimately inhibits the potential for growth. As part of Industry 4.0, the way to avoid it is through integration.
