A test drive by The Wall Street Journal suggests that the Tesla Roadster’s 244-mile range may be a difficult target to hit. WSJ reviewer Clifford Atiyeh said “I never got close to Tesla’s claimed 244-mile range in which the car can drive without a recharge.” Atiyeh apparently made two attempts at reaching the 244-mile range. On one, he drove 125 miles and had 19 miles of battery life remaining on the computer. On the second, using the vehicle’s “range mode,” he traveled 130 miles and had 19 miles of battery range remaining on the computer.
The Wall Street Journal’s test vehicle cost $122,000.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
