Engineering Pro Mobility App | Engineering Applications

February 27th, 2013

TechCrunch reported that the mobile application market could be worth an estimated $25 billion dollars by 2015. With the introduction of tablets and smartphones into mainstream communication, having mobile tools for every industry is important. The engineering industry is no different. Mobile applications can be used to increase efficiency and productivity in the workplace.

Engineering Pro, developed by Multieducator Inc., is a lifeline for engineering students and professionals. The Apple iOS application costs $11.99 on iTunes, but is well worth the cost. Engineering Pro provides up-to-date formulas for engineers when they are out in the field. Sometimes engineers will be looking for formulas outside of their branch of engineering. Engineering Pro gives you formulas for all types of engineering including civil, mechanical, electrical, and environmental.

Currently, Engineering Pro provides engineers with 650 built-in formulas. The formulas are updated regularly in an every changing engineering environment. There are also 100 conversion formulas. These allow engineers to easily convert units when in the field.

The application is very user friendly, offering saved formulas as well as access to favorite formulas. To increase the usability of the application, you are able to email your formula results to anyone directly within the app. Therefore, if you are on site and reporting to your team, you are able to stay in constant communication.

The application offers the following formulas:

Chemical Engineering: Cogeneration, Crushers, Energy Loss, Vaporization, Steam, and Vapor Separators

Civil Engineering: Beams, Bridges, Columns, Concrete, Elevators, Piles, Piping, Plates, Roads, and Shear

Electrical Engineering: ACDA, Batteries, BTU Conversion, Cost, Kilowatt and Lumens, Generators, Impedance, Lighting, Motors, Ohms Law, and more

Environmental Engineering: Air Quality, CFC, Lake Pollution, River Pollution, Soil Pollution, Hydrology, Infiltration and Recharge, and more

Mechanical Engineering: Bearing, Belt, Boiler, Brake, Clutch, gears, Heat Transfer, Kinetic Energy, Metalworking, and more

Engineering Pro currently runs on version 3.2.1. It can be downloaded in iTunes for your Apple mobile device. Engineers must always be prepared on site. Having a simple formula application with you at all times will improve your efficiency as an engineer.

Engineer App Series: AutoCAD WS Design App

January 31st, 2013

Garage door opener? There’s an app for that.
Locked your keys in the car? There’s an app for that.
What is the name of the song in that commercial…? There’s an app for that.
Engineering and AutoCAD WS design? There is now also an app for that.

Over 2,500,000 design mobile design apps have been downloaded from iTunes and Google Play. That is quite significant. Now engineers can take the next step into design technology and take AutoCAD designs, wherever they need to go.

The app company Autodesk is emphatic about building the best mobile tools for engineers. The app employs several important features that make this product incredibly desirable and successful.

1. Opening DWG and DXF files. Designers can easily open these files with support for xRefs, images, stylesheets and fonts.

2. Add new objects and texts to current designs. From your mobile device you can draw accurate lines, polylines and circles, as well as add necessary text.

3. Sharing features. Without being at your desk, you can share designs, as well as edit each other’s work, seeing the changes in real time.

4. Snap and unit drawing. Modes of ortho, snapping and unit input allow for precise drawing and measurements.

5. Various viewing modes. View your drawings in black and white, color and at various angles.

6. Edit objects. You can scale, rotate and move already created objects with just a simple touch and easy user interface.

The app also allows for online and offline access, so you can have instant access at any time.

The great thing about the AutoCAD WS app, is the variety of companies and industries that have found success with it. Notable organizations include the University of Cincinnati, where researchers are using the tool to study excavacations via hand drawings of the ancient city of Pompeii.

Theater Consultants Collaborative, LLC used AutoCAD WS to work with architects to design not only beautiful, but functional theater spaces.

Fitzroy Yachts of New Zealand custom builds superyachts for very lucky customers. Everything on the boats is made from scratch, and the AutoCAD helps the company to shape ideas with clients on the go.
