Who really invented the laser?

I suspect that most, if not all, revolutionary inventions of the 19th and 20th centuries came from the creative minds of more than one person, regardless of who was awarded the patent.

3D CAD and Model-Centric Design

Design World Open Discussion Feature:



A landmark study from Aberdeen Group reports that 85% of the current CAD users still primarily use 2D drafting. This astonishing statistic means that most companies use CAD software as a drafting tool to create orthographic views to represent 3D objects.
