Engineering Plastics Stratasys' Stratasys Objet30 Pro The Stratasys Objet30 Pro is the ideal in-house prototyping solution for designers, engineers, and product managers. With a compact build tray size of 300 mm x 200 mm x 150 mm, its applications range from consumer goods to consumer electronics, medical devices, and design consultancies. The Stratasys Objet30 Pro combines the accuracy and versatility of a high-end rapid prototyping machine with the small footprint of a desktop printer. It allows for printing seven different materials with the industry’s highest-level print resolution, and is the world’s only desktop 3D printer capable of printing in clear transparent material, high-temperature resistant material, and rigid opaque polypropylene-like material. With the industry’s highest levels of prototyping accuracy and material versatility, the Stratasys Objet30 Pro dramatically cuts product development time and allows users to efficiently and reliably move from concept to design to final product creation.
Right off the bat we again see the importance of 3D printing with the very first finalist -- Objet 3D Pro. Wherever you go these days, discussions seem to turn to 3D printing, not only for 3D prototypes, but for parts that get used in test and even in production.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
Neil Fromer is the executive director of the Resnick Institute, a program for energy and sustainability at the California Institute of Technology, working to develop new ideas and research technologies related to providing a sustainable future. He spoke to us about the severity of the current drought in California and how solar energy can help prevent such situations in the future.
From home enthusiasts to workers on the manufacturing floor, everyone's imagination is captured by the potential of 3D printing. Prototyping, spare parts creation, art delivery, human organ creation, and even mass product production are all being targeted as current and potential uses for the technology.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
