What are you doing next Thursday? In between your Bloody Mary and Vodka Tonic transition, which usually occurs right around 11:00 AM...? [grin] There is going to be a pretty sweet webinar hosted by Desktop Engineering's Kenneth Wong. The topic of the webinar is combining time tested engineering principles with the incredible amount of data that is just a few clicks or searches away from today's engineers. Then, how do you leverage that knowledge in your designs?
Among the panel is going to be our very own Amy Bunzel, Sr. Director of Digital Engineering for Autodesk Manufacturing. She's going to be joined by Sandy Joung, Sr. Director of Product Marketing at PTC for this round table discussion. Sounds intriguing does it not?

Have a great (long) weekend everyone! Do you have your Hawaiian Shirts and flippy floppy's on yet..? I do.
Oh yeah, here's more info about the event:
We know a lot more than we used to about the world around us. Knowledge once confined to experts and specialists — like the amount of power available at a certain wind speed or the tensile strength of a biodegradable, wheat-based plastic — are now just a few Google searches away. Such information can be expressed in mathematical terms, as equations and tables, to help you come up with the best curvature for a wind turbine’s blade or the most sensible wall thickness for a plastic part.
The same information can also be found among the titles made available to subscribers by technical content providers like Knovel. In the case of Knovel users, the data may be exported as editable equations and Excel worksheets, to be associated with certain critical parameters and dimensions in your CAD design.
On June 3, I’ll be cohosting a webcast titled “Materialistic Engineering: Building Stronger, Better Products Using Interactive Tables and Equation,” brought to you by Desktop Engineering and Knovel. I’m privileged to share the panel with Sandy Joung, senior director of product marketing for Pro/ENGINEER and Mathcad, PTC; and Amy Bunzel, senior director of digital engineering for Manufacturing Solutions Division, Autodesk.
In this one hour event, the panelists and I will explore the following topics:
- How you can take advantage of time-tested engineering principles and newly discovered sustainable practices
- How you can capture them as equations and mathematical expressions to help shape the geometry of your design
- The pros and cons of working with equations and tables in mechanical CAD programs
