And I guess the price issue is all relative. 3D printers that cost anywhere from $1,500 to $5,000 are considered cheap by traditional standards, but that's still a hefty cost for hobbyists and home-based innovators and even for smaller engineering shops.
I think you're going to see a lot more activity on both the software and hardware front in terms of advancing 3D printing capabilities and making them more accessible. Now that the costs have come down on the hardware, and the noise level is reaching a pitch in terms of what's possible, vendors from all sides seem to be all over the category and really pushing some pretty unique innovations.
Super interesting. For some time we had problems explaining the operation of some mechanical structures until we did a dynamic 3D in ACAD, however it required someone to spend some valuable time and learn how to do it. It is not easy.
I looks that this new idea may make these presentations simpler to make.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
