When can you run Solidworks in firefox?

You somewhat already can, it is called Solidworks Blueprintnow and is a DWG viewer and editor, but that is not what we are talking about here, we are talking about running your CAD fully from a web browser where internet speed will be the talk, and quad core and high end graphics card would be laughed at.

In last months issue of DEVELOP3D Martyn Day wrote an article about how close we might be from this being reality.

The concept is called Cloud Computing and is something that you are going to be more familiar with in the future, running your programs and pulling your files from high speed internet servers.
I would recommend you took a 5 minute coffee break and read Martyn Day’s article just so you can prepare yourself for what is around the corner.
You will find Martyn Day’s article starting on page 49 of April 2009 issue that can be downloaded in pdf format here DEVELOP3D

Happy reading.

A quick look outside the Mastercam world

We all know it can be hard finding the time to do much between shoveling snow and trying to pay the mortgage. That’s why it is nice when someone else will do the leg work for you, just sit back and spend a quick 5 minutes exploring what else is going on a couple of places outside the Mastercam world with a cup of coffee.
1st. thing should be reading Al Deans article in the Develop3D Magazine, Mr.Dean have spend a day at Delcam Headquarters and reports back with a good read, check it out.

For some reason when I start thinking of other Cad/Cam packages beside Mastercam, Siemens always comes to mind. Here is a couple of short videos for you to check out.

Coffee is gone, time to get back to work, but 5 minute break……arhh don’t we all feel better now?
