Cabe--I am amazed at the low cost of this printer AND with software included. (If I read this properly.) It does appear the products created are somewhat small in size but of course most products are "scalable" and can demonstrate form, fit and function adequately. One thing that really makes me feel very good--the junior high school my oldest grandson attends has a 3 D printer. You would not believe the objects they are learning to produce. The printer was a donation from a parent and is used in the physics class these guys have to take. Great use of a student's time.
3D printers are really good and advance invention, through 3D printers, we can make our life more colorful and with full of fun.After the invention of 3D printers, the industry has been changed totally.
While the cost of 3D printers going down is an exciting development, I am wondering how practical they are considering the costs of the filament cartridges and how much real use you would have with one. I know when we first starting getting really cheap inkjet printers, the cost of the ink cartridges often offset any cost savings realized by a cheaper printer. I don't know enough - but I am wondering if buying one of these 3D printers will put you in the same predicament?
The 3D fabric printer really caught my eye in this article. This is clearly an innovative new approach to 3D printing. Future applicatoins could include custom logos or better form-fitting apparel as the technology advances and smaller fibers are able to be manipulated.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
