Crisis Spurs Innovation

Calling all able-minded designers & engineers! How are you utilizing your skills during this critical time? The healthcare industry is in desperate need of supplies & support. Are you able to help close the gap between actual resources and those in need around the world? This webinar, on April 10 at noon Central time, is for you.

Creo and Solidworks will both be discussed and compared using Surfaces as Tools for a 3D printable Face Shield model example. Open-forum for ideas, thoughts, and questions answered. All CAD pros are welcome to virtually attend.

The CoVent 19 Challenge is asking engineers, innovators, designers, & makers to submit multiple designs for a viable mechanical ventilator. We are using this as inspiration to create among our community.

We should be looking ahead to make the next thing that we need fast. PPE is scarce and the supply chains are disrupted by restrictions. The next need could be IV bags, blood drawing equipment, or other essential devices. Design for sustainable re-use, quick manufacture, and rapid distribution.

We are all in this together!
