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.

The Beam Store from Suitable Technologies is managed by remote workers from places as diverse as New York and Sydney, Australia. Employees attend to store visitors through Beam Smart Presence Systems (SPSs) from the company. The systems combine mobility and video conferencing and allow people to communicate directly from a remote location via a screen as well as move around as if they are actually in the room.
An MIT research team has invented what they see as a solution to the need for biodegradable 3D-printable materials made from something besides petroleum-based sources: a water-based robotic additive extrusion method that makes objects from biodegradable hydrogel composites.
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.
