Disney Creates A Method To Turn Any 3-D Surface Into A Display. When we imagine displays, we think of computer monitors and smartphone touch screens.

Disney Creates A Method To Turn Any 3-D Surface Into A Display

They’re basically TVs we stick to things. The idea works well for anything already shaped like a rectangle. But nothing curved quite works--it becomes a tacky retrofit, as seen in minivans and airline seats. Disney Research has come up with an interesting solution called Printed Optics.

Formlabs Creates a Low-Cost, Light-Based 3-D Printer

Desktop 3-D printing has largely been the domain of extrusion-based machines like MakerBot’s Replicator and homebrew RepRap designs. While this process’s print size, speed and quality have improved over time, it still lags behind the capabilities of pricier, professional stereolithography devices, where UV light cures incredibly thin layers of resin to create objects on par with manufactured goods. The New MakerBot Replicator Might Just Change Your World. MakerBot cofounder Bre Pettis says his new 3-D printer, the sleek Replicator 2 (shown at right), has a design that’s “Darth Vader driving KITT while being airlifted by a Nighthawk spy plane.”

Solidoodle 3D Printer - 3D printers

Premade printers, like the $1,999 I just reviewed, sold for roughly between $1,500 to $2,500. You could alternatively buy a build-it-yourself kit, like the MakerGear Mosaic 3D printer I built in January, starting around $700. Then a little company in Brooklyn, N.Y., introduced the Solidoodle 2, a preassembled 3D printer starting at $500. I first learned of the Solidoodle 2 at the NY Tech Day startup event last month.

RAPID PRODUCTION. * Manufacturing: The third industrial revolution. THE first industrial revolution began in Britain in the late 18th century, with the mechanisation of the textile industry.

* Manufacturing: The third industrial revolution

Tasks previously done laboriously by hand in hundreds of weavers' cottages were brought together in a single cotton mill, and the factory was born. The second industrial revolution came in the early 20th century, when Henry Ford mastered the moving assembly line and ushered in the age of mass production. The first two industrial revolutions made people richer and more urban. Now a third revolution is under way. Manufacturing is going digital.

Economist - World News, Politics, Economics, Business & Finance. Engineers fly world's first 'printed' aircraft. Engineers at the University of Southampton have designed and flown the world's first 'printed' aircraft, which could revolutionise the economics of aircraft design.

Engineers fly world's first 'printed' aircraft

The SULSA (Southampton University Laser Sintered Aircraft) plane is an unmanned air vehicle (UAV) whose entire structure has been printed, including wings, integral control surfaces and access hatches. It was printed on an EOS EOSINT P730 nylon laser sintering machine, which fabricates plastic or metal objects, building up the item layer by layer. No fasteners were used and all equipment was attached using 'snap fit' techniques so that the entire aircraft can be put together without tools in minutes. The electric powered vehicle aircraft, with a 2-metres wingspan, has a top speed of nearly 100 miles per hour, but when in cruise mode is almost silent. The aircraft is also equipped with a miniature autopilot developed by Dr Matt Bennett, one of the members of the team. Materials. * The Implications of 3D Printing for the Global Logistics Industry.

* The Implications of 3D Printing for the Global Logistics Industry

According to the White Paper authors; ‘3D Printing’, or ‘additive manufacturing’ as it is also known, has the potential to become the biggest single disruptive phenomenon to impact global industry since assembly lines were introduced in early twentieth century America I largely agree with their statement, and indeed would highlight the impact on Spare/Service-Parts Logistics as being the most pivotal when it comes to the impact on LSPs and how this technology could revolutionize a company’s own internal spare parts management structure. John and Ken write: >>>The Service Parts Logistics sector would be one of the first to be affected. At present billions are spent on holding stock to supply products as diverse as cars to x-ray machines. You can read the full White-Paper at. Giant 3D Printers.

Fast 3D printing with nanoscale precision. 285-micron racecar (credit: Vienna University of Technology) Printing three dimensional objects with very fine details using two-photon lithography can now be achieved orders of magnitude faster than similar devices in a breakthrough by Vienna University of Technology (TU Vienna) researchers.

Fast 3D printing with nanoscale precision

The 3D printing process uses a liquid resin, which is hardened at precisely the correct spots by a focused laser beam. The focal point of the laser beam is guided through the resin by movable mirrors and leaves behind a hardened line of solid polymer a few hundred nanometers wide. This fine resolution enables the creation of intricately structured sculptures as tiny as a grain of sand. “Until now, this technique used to be quite slow”, says Professor Jürgen Stampfl from the Institute of Materials Science and Technology at the TU Vienna.

This progress was made possible by combining several new ideas. Faster printing for large objects too.
