Had to pass along my Monkey Product. It’s a little dated but it’s classic.
When my wife and I were married, we received lots of very nice gifts - dishes, pots and pans, small appliances, glassware, serving trays, bedding, etc. One of the things we got was a toaster. It looked like a pretty nice toaster but one thing I noticed that I thought was odd was that the power cord came out the front of the toaster, where you select how “brown” you want your toast. Now, while this was a little different, what I found very strange, and something that just ended up infuriating me, was the fact that the length of the power cord was about 12 inches. So to plug the toaster in to any outlet, you had to turn the unit away from you to use it, which meant that you had to select how brown you wanted your toast before you plugged it in. This wouldn’t be a problem if you lived alone but if you wanted really brown toast, and your spouse wanted slightly brown toast, well….you get the picture. The monkey that designed our toaster with a 12 inch cord that came out the front needed to be shot!
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
