Silverside Detectors working with Onshape to make nuclear radiation sensors

Silverside Detectors, a Massachusetts-based company specializing in nuclear security, is using tools from Onshape, a cloud-based CAD software provider. The objective is to develop low-cost compact-sized nuclear radiation detectors. Philip Taber, Silverside VP of Hardware Engineering, praised the efficiency of Onshape software, “We switched to Onshape because we urgently needed help with data management.” “Onshape probably […]

Canada considers 3D printed housing for its most extreme environments

The Conference Board of Canada, a not-for-profit think tank based in Ottawa, has released a report discussing 3D printing’s potential in construction. Targeting Canada’s North, which accounts for roughly 39% of the country’s entire land area but only housing 1% of its total population, this research is seeking to improve people’s quality of life by […]
