New Publication in PLOS ONE – 3D Printing Negligible-cost Microfluidics

Negligible-cost microfluidic device fabrication using 3D-printed interconnecting channel scaffolds Available open access via PLOS One: Harry, Robert Hughes and Andrea Diaz Gaxiola have together published work that demonstrates a fabrication method to produce negligible-cost microfluidic devices that can be combined using a system of inter-connecting joints. The method uses 3D printed scaffolds – produced […]

DCC 2020 – Poster Presentation (Presented by 8-bit Harry!)

Harry today presented his poster titled “Investigating strategies for mass property replication in 3D printed prototypes” at DCC2020 – virtually, of course, given the world we now live in! The poster aims to introduce the use of variable infill for the purpose of replicating mass properties between as-designed and as-fabricated parts when using rapid prototyping. […]

Design 2020

We would like to thank the organisers of Design 2020 for a fantastic virtual conference, with four papers presented by member of the group: A FRAMING OF DESIGN AS PATHWAYS BETWEEN PHYSICAL, VIRTUAL AND COGNITIVE MODELS presented by David, DEMOCRATISING DESIGN THROUGH SURROGATE MODEL CONVOLUTIONAL NEURAL NETWORKS OF COMPUTER AIDED DESIGN REPOSITORIES and CO-WORD GRAPHS […]

New journal paper: Model-Based Information Navigation for Engineering Documents

I’ve finally gotten around to publishing my PhD work in the Computers in Industry journal: Model-based information navigation provides a three-dimensional user interface (based on the product CAD model) as an interface to a search engine. Given engineers think visually and functionally and search engines are traditionally text based, the premise behind this work […]

New Publication Alert! Characterising the Digital Twin: A systematic literature review

Some of the work undertaken as part of the protoTwinning project involved an in depth understanding of the Digital Twin such that the project could determine the appropriateness of the paradigm to early stage design and prototyping activities. The paper is the result of a systematic literature review into existing publications and contributes to the […]
