I agree, Ann, the ASTM standards will provide a framework to stand on as the strength and durability debate continues.

Optimized Support Structures

I am especially interested in the optimized support structure (slide 3) which shows a dramatically reduced amount of support structure material being used.  This is can be very significant for certain applications.  Not only will this save money (less material used), but will also allow for a much faster cleanup of parts (saves time).  In addition to this, certain designs have very delicate features.  By creating a minum amount of material to remove on these delicate features, part breakage and damage can also be reduced.

I still believe durability will be an issue along with cost effectiveness.

AM materials standards

Although I listed it last, the ASTM standards effort to determine the mechanical properties of materials made with AM processes just might end up being the most important of these. There's continuing debate in the industry about the strength and durability of materials made by layering, and a metric for discussing and assessing them is a good start.

Here's a variety of views into the complex production processes at Santa's factory. Happy Holidays!
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.
Thanks to 3D printing, some custom-made prosthetic limbs, and a Lego set, one lucky dog and a tortoise has learned new tricks.
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.
With Radio Shack on the ropes, let's take a memory trip through the highlights of Radio Shack products.
