White Paper on CAD

While writing the technical White paper, trialed the software available on the market for the MATRIX including from NASA and DELCAM etc, After discovering CAD CAM software on sale for $1 in a shopping mall in South East Asia, was invited to Delcam HQ (Acquired by Autodesk) in Birmingham UK, the Aviation CNC engineering software was analysed and was found to have essential code missing and Malware inserted.

Western advanced CAD software was often pirated and distributed with Malware, recently a spider-man film became the highest pirated film in history, it contained Bitcoin mining code, hijacking in the background millions of computers.

Autodesk and other CAD Software companies introduced Education and low price Hobbiest Lic* i.e. Pro-E software was £30K and with the introduction of the WIldfire version the price reduced to £3k to increase adoption and reduce piracy. Delcam developed the Spark Open Software platform for 3D printing build preparation and AutoDesk the Ember DLP Digital Light projector SLA technology, all in the theme of igniting the third industrial revolution link after the patients for 3D printing eased and the consumer devices appeared on the market circa 2014

Digital design, engineering and AM additive manufacturing is used today to innovate in many fields from surgical planning to everyday consumer items where it is used to improve aesthetics, safety, and reduce tooling costs. Described as disruptive technologies, with the right planning and investment in training and technology, it can be a new tool in the box to provide new business opportunities, address Lean Manufacturing objectives, and help meet global initiative to design reliable longevity, for sustainability, lowering plastic use responsible and Carbon Neutrality, to promote a greener World.

This has had a huge influence on the Global focus in the design and engineering industries, key design principals include improve safety, aesthetics, maximize strength, reducing weight and waste, while being easily serviceable, and using sustainable materials wherever possible. FEA Finite Element Analysis software is used to reduce weight and waste and AM additive manufacturing is used to produce iterations of designs without the high cost of tooling.

Norman Maccallum DSc, (left) circa 1992 left with uncle Alex at the Highland Games (Alex a tower crane operator)

Shared research on digital design Rapid Prototyping for Engine manufacturing with Prof Norman R L MacCallum DSc HSRF Professor Emeritus (relative) at Glasgow university School of MECHANICAL ENGINEERING who’s pioneering work on heat soakage during gas turbine transients gave him an international profile, through numerous international publications and several contributions to Rolls-Royce.

Remember visiting Norman at the University walking past the supercomputer in the engineering department.

As a teacher and examiner He taught large numbers of practising engineers, undergraduate and postgraduate engineering students, mainly at Glasgow University, but also in Carleton in Canada and Cranfield in England. The most fortunate had him as a research supervisor. The Herald 30th June 2006

Norman’s work had a direct impact on engine fuel economy and in turn reducing the rate of global warming from aviation which one of the highest contributors. turbomachinery and exhaust systems, gas turbine performance in test beds, combustion and gas turbine transient performance, a 30% fuel saving in one generation of engine circa 2000, Liquid Thermal dynamics.

When I started out I remember well modelling CAD in 3D uses floating point data… Intel’s famed technical prowess was not without mishaps. Its greatest mistake was the so-called “Pentium flaw,” in which an obscure segment among the Pentium CPU’s 3.1 million transistors performed division incorrectly. for example the Earth to land on a point on the Moon it would miss the landing point. and as such avoided the first Intel Pentiums processors.

The intel engineers also secretly made rude comments about each other on the edge of the design die which was found when the poster of the chip was made, which I can’t find reference to anywhere online. the Company engineers discovered the problem after the product’s release in 1993 but decided to keep quiet and fix the problem in updates to the chip. However, mathematician Thomas Nicely of Lynchburg College in West Virginia also discovered the flaw. At first Grove (then CEO) resisted requests to recall the product. But when IBM announced it would not ship computers with the CPU, it forced a recall that cost Intel $475 million
