Nature Architects Inc. – Nature Architects inc. makes elasticity and deformation to be computable.
Trying to work on advanced bulk materials designs, using interesting internal structures to provide materials they call CAM's which can do neat things, like weird springs and making curved truss structures from flatpack materials .

TeamPlatform Online Project Management for Product Design and Engineering Services
Online project management service oriented for products, with integrated 3D CAD file support, task management, and the usual GANTT charting but with a better interface. Supposedly beats the pants of Microsoft Project. Now owned by 3DS.

A repository for 3D printer parts files for weapons parts, in particular the lower receiver of a gun, which is the only actively regulated component in the US. Considering the current home manufacturing loopholes (which allow non-registered manufacturing of lower receivers as long as they will not be sold/transferred and probably stay within one state), public dissemination of weapons parts files is a potentially significant issue, both in terms of arms technology management/policy, and 3D printer regulation/policy.

Open source house design building blocks, with the intention of parts being CNC milled for DIY assembly. Current it seems to be about milling stuff from wood or plywood for flatpack transport for semi-custom shapes then putting various modules together, but the probable end goal is 3D contour crafting concrete structures though.

Fujitsu announces 'Engineering Cloud' for manufacturing ‹ Japan Today: Japan News and Discussion
This seems to be pretty smart, outsourcing the segments of manufacturing support IT operations for small companies to someone who is competant, and getting access to better softwre and supply chain management suites. The CAD stuff is going to be difficult, short of using something like VMware's PCoIP protocol for doing remote 3D CAD work, but that ultimately needs a fairly high end PC or specialist thin client to do it well.

Autodesk 123D - Free 3D Modeling Software, 3D Models, DIY Projects, Personal Fabrication Tools
Does STL export, and supports assemblies and constraints. Could be decent, and a possible helper for fabber rigs. But it seems like they are catering exclusively to partner fabber services/design bureaus as a click-to-print 3D printing service integrated with the CAD software, so unrelated third parties get to suck it.

Windows Virtualization Team Blog : Explaining Microsoft RemoteFX
Finally moving into graphics virtualization and remote 3D and OpenGL via RDP. But, as usual, it is a proprietary remote graphics acceleration spec. It's a shame there isn't a better open spec for remote 3D. HP had some extensions, and KVM's SPICE protocol had some too, but nothing really tight. Citrix has sorta been doing their own thing with HDX, but that has up to now been mostly so-so. I wonder if they are flat out cheating and going with a full inline h.264 streamer? COnsidering the minimum hardware specs for 2008R2SP1, that's within the realm of possibility (especially if they force the virtualization hand by requireing VT/VTX capable hardware, which could execute software encoding, though with greater graphics virtualization like what Teradici's PCoverIP, they could be doing graphics card tricks too.
