The combination of Gentle Giant's attention to detail and 3D systems ability to print whatever  comes their way is great for both companies and a very potent combination indeed. Because both of these also have loyal and secure customer segments, they may be taking over many other market segments working as a combined force.

To have a company that can capture even the smallest detail of an object through complex scanning mechanisms and then re-create it and another company that can reproduce these recreations very accurately and in large numbers means that we will be seeing more and better products from 3D systems in the near future.

Good move for growing into strategic markets by purchasing recognized names in the industry.  Seems 3D Systems has a good long range vision of where they want to be and an effective business roadmap for getting there.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
