Here is a mystery in the process of being solved. In a white marble powder room, the interior designer supplied mirrors and crystals to be lit by glass fiber optics lighting.
Crystals were attached to the front of the mirrors and the silver backing was removed from the reverse side to allow the light emitted from 5mm light guides to shine through.
A year after installation, black dots appeared on all the crystals. Only light rays, not electricity, flows through the light guides.
What caused the black dots? Could it be the silver reacting with light? Can the spots be removed? We are waiting for answers both the manufacturer of the glass fiber optics, and the mirrors.
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
