Over the past ten years, a big part of the digital elevation modeling process has massively improved. The GIS and DEM software industry has grown by leaps and bounds with top of the line open-source and proprietary software capable of processing massive amounts of data to quickly produce precise DEMs in a range of formats.
An increasing trend to reduce the overall weight of products in multiple industries such as aerospace, renewables, construction and transportation, is driving tremendous growth in the lightweight structures market.
While technology has changed the world as we know it and continues to impact industries around the world, engineering is one sector in particular where all sorts of new developments and projects are becoming reality thanks to the pairing of computers and humans.
The concept of rapid prototyping is becoming a standard across many industries, as engineers, builders, and makers of all types look for new ways to bring their ideas to life and solve problems quickly.
