1.Increasing shift to subscription model
In 2016, Autodesk will stop providing perpetual CAD licenses and focus more on subscriptions as they are expected to provide higher revenues for end-users.
2.Rising shift toward 4D models
CAD vendors are developing 4D CAD solutions that will enable increased operational performance. This improves the project execution strategy, leading to better execution and sequencing of construction schedules with granular level information.
3.Increasing adoption of synchronous technology
The synchronous technology provides proper control and immediate feedback of the model designed, thereby making the work easier for suppliers, engineers, and designers.
4.Rising use of 3D printer in CAD
The global 3D printer market was valued at USD 1.19 billion in 2014 and will reach USD 6.95 billion by 2019, growing at a CAGR of over 42%. 3D printers find an increased adoption across the manufacturing industry.

LG Develops Flexible Pressure Sensors: An innovative textile technology

LG Innotek, a LG’s subsidiary, has developed a textile pressure sensor that could be used in industries like healthcare and manufacturing. Commercialisation of the innovative textile sensors is yet to begin but the South Korean company (LG) claims to invent these textile sensors that are superior to the existing inflexible and stiff pressure sensors.

The sensors are made from elastic polyurethane material that enables it to be integrated into other products seamlessly and they can be used in cars to detect driver’s posture, body type, weight, and automatically adjusting the seat or pressure of an airbag.

The sensors can be used to make pressure-sensitive shoes or carpets to detect a patient’s movement or to make pressure-sensitive golf club to improve a golfer’s grip.
