  • The IET event at Bournemouth Uni was a great success, thank you to the IET for hosting this event. Over 50 people attended, some from as far as Winchester. The presenters did an excellent job and you could clearly see they all had a passion for engineering, even the young ones who were only fifteen. Extra thanks for the Renishaw guys; Matthew and Jamie who travelled all the way from Bristol to the event.

    One of the items presented was a configurable mannequin that could be modelled with the car design in Solid Edge. This mannequin has been created by one of the Siemens interns. It can be tailored to mimic any driver shape and size with a few parametric inputs. The human mannequin driver should be available to download early in the New Year. Solid Edge are looking to see if it can be added to the academic section of their website.

    Here is a selection of photos take at the event.
