Dates for Nine Dot Connects’ Rise of Mechatronics Free Technical Seminar Still Available


Reading time ( words)

Does mechatronic design equal 3D design? When we look back at the concept of 3D, we can see that it has already been a game changer in the way we design products. SOLIDWORKS became the dominant mechanical engineering tool by making it very easy to design in the 3D space. In 2008, Altium Inc. revolutionized the EDA industry by allowing the ECAD world to readily communicate with the MCAD world through 3D design. Prior to this capability, there was a process chasm between these two disciplines. 

There has been lot of talk as of late about mechatronics, with the simultaneous blending of electrical and mechanical aspects of the design. This will not only require a new thinking in the way we design in software, it will also require new ways of thinking in manufacturing. If we really step back and think about it, to make mechatronic design feasible, we have think beyond the 2D world in which we design our electronics. 

Nine Dot Connects has teamed up with SOLIDWORKS for a 12-city roadshow to explore this topic of mechatronic from a process, software, and manufacturing view. During this lunch & learn presentation, attendees will learn how the electronics industry has changed, where it is going, and the tools that are available to enable them to become part of this new age of mechatronics, regardless of your current trade or skill. With change comes opportunity, with opportunity comes growth. The field of mechatronics is open to those who want to expand their horizons. Anyone who has a role or interest in PCB / FMB design should attend. For those who are currently immersed in it, this is an opportunity to see where the industry is going. For those new to or interested in the field, it is a chance to see where the opportunities lie.

    • September 19, Tuesday - Livonia, MI
    • September 20, Wednesday - Minneapolis, MN
    • September 21, Thursday - Bellevue, WA

Zuken Teams With Nano Dimension for 3D Printing Design Flow

11/25/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCB Design007
At PCB West, Zuken shared a booth with Nano Dimension. Zuken has been working with Nano Dimension for some time, and adding support for 3D printing and nanotechnology to its design tool platforms. I sat down with Zuken’s Humair Mandavia and Nano Dimension’s Simon Fried to learn more about this alliance, and to find out more about this odd-looking box being demonstrated in Zuken’s booth.

Altium Designer 18 Introduced at AltiumLive 2017

10/12/2017 | Barry Matties, Publisher, I-Connect007
At the recent AltiumLive 2017 event in San Diego, I sat down for an interview with Dan Fernsebner, Altium’s global head of technical marketing. Dan discussed the upcoming release of Altium Designer 18, as well as the company’s corporate responsibility for giving back to the industry and bringing more young people into EDA. The event featured speakers such as Happy Holden, Dan Beeker, Charles Pfeil, and Tara Dunn, as well as a robot team competition.

SnapEDA: Recruiting Top Engineering Talent in an Amazon World

05/31/2017 | Andy Shaughnessy, PCBDesign007
You don’t have to love EDA to work at SnapEDA, but it helps. This startup, founded by Natasha Baker, is on its way to creating the world’s largest parts library for PCB designers. Baker leads a small team of young, fiercely talented engineers—the kind of employees that are attractive to companies like Google and Facebook. I asked Natasha to explain her hiring process, and how she ensures that each employee is the right fit for SnapEDA.
