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.
Samsung's Galaxy line of smartphones used to fare quite well in the repairability department, but last year's flagship S5 model took a tumble, scoring a meh-inducing 5/10. Will the newly redesigned S6 lead us back into star-studded territory, or will we sink further into the depths of a repairability black hole?
In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
