At the University of Texas El Paso, a biology researcher teams up with a manufacturing technology instructor to produce rattlesnake models realistic enough to draw predators.
FDM Assembly Fixture Generator automates design of jigs and fixtures, enabling engineers to quickly turn a part file into a ready-to-print fixture with a simple drag-and-drop function.
A Q&A with the editor-in-chief of CompositesWorld explores tooling, continuous fiber, hybrid processes, and the opportunities for smaller and more intricate composite parts.
