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.
There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
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.
