We recently purchased a new GE refrigerator with through-the-door ice service. The day after we installed the refrigerator, we tested the ice dispenser and found that most of the ice was falling inside the freezer, rather than falling into the chute through the door.
It wasn’t readily apparent what was happening, so my young and creative son suggested that we put a camera (and a flashlight for illumination) in the freezer and record a short video so we could see what was happening. The video revealed that the opening in the bottom of the ice bucket did not line up with the door chute. We called GE, and they sent a service technician to our home to look at the refrigerator. The technician was amused by our home video, and complimented my son on his diagnostic technique. GE shipped the correct ice bucket to us, and the problem was solved. However, GE’s wrong-ice-bucket mistake wasted hours of my time, spent waiting for the service technician to show up.
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
