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.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
