The FDM Quantum rapid prototyping system incorporates MagnaDrive technology to achieve fast throughput and superior part quality. The system also has an extra-large build envelope for creating big prototypes and tooling patterns and masters. MagnaDrive uses the same technology as in the latest high-accuracy "pick and place" machines for semiconductor manufacturing. An extrusion head, containing an electro-magnetic motion-control unit, is pulled toward a steel plate above. The head is simultaneously pushed away from the plate's surface by a cushion of air.

Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
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.
