Comment une antenne imprimée en 3D pourrait changer Manufacturing 0 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 0 Pin It Share 0 LinkedIn 0 inShare0 Reddit 0 0 Flares × Many people question the utility of 3D printers because they believe they’re only capable of printing simple plastic parts. 3D printers are capable of much more. For a while now they’ve been creating objects from glass, ceramic, and metals, among other basic materials. While that opens up doors to many other applications, including tools and parts for jet engines, many people still struggle to see how 3D printing will effect consumer products. Especially in an environment where many of the products we buy have electronics built-in. Think about the products you’ve bought recently or plan to buy in the future.
Add Another Dimension to Your Photos with 3D Printing A bit of clever thinking from San Francisco Instructables member Amanda Ghassei has produced some really creative 3D-printed images from nothing but old photographs. Printed using an Objet Connex 500, Ghassei’s creations are still meant to be viewed in 2D, but are textured to create an interesting silhouette effect. In order to properly view them, they must be backlit with a diffuse light. The Ultimate Guide to Creating Effective Landing Pages OK, let’s be honest. While this may be a pretty darn good guide (if I do say so myself), it’s not going to be the last thing anyone ever writes about landing pages. So what’s with the “ultimate guide” stuff? Well, it’s part of what brought you here—which makes it one component of an effective landing page. You are, right this very minute, looking at a landing page.
Rapport McKinsey identifie également l'impression 3D comme une technologie disruptive clé 1 Flares Twitter 0 Facebook 0 Google+ 1 Pin It Share 0 LinkedIn 0 inShare0 Reddit 0 1 Flares × James Manyika and other researchers at McKinsey have identified 3D printing as a key disruptive technology and believe by 2025 it will have a significant impact on the global economy. They forecast that by 2025, 3D printing in total could have an economic impact of $230 – $550 billion based on its ability to reduce cost and create value through customization. In the consumer space, the researchers believe 3D printing could impact products with high customization value including toys, accessories, jewelry, footwear, ceramics and apparel. McKinsey estimates global sales of these products could grow to $4 trillion a year by 2025 and it is possible that most of the consumers of these products (nearly everyone) could have access to 3D printing and might 3D print 5 -10% of all products in these categories.

6 Things That Separate the Great Entrepreneurs from the Rest We asked members of the Entrepreneurs' Organization (EO) to share their thoughts on what it takes to be a great entrepreneur. Here's what they had to say. Grit "One characteristic which separates good entrepreneurs from great ones is grit. Being an entrepreneur isn't easy and you won't always make perfect decisions. Potential Cost, Eco & Functional Benefits of 3D Printing Mobile Device Antennae Optomec Inc, an often overlooked OEM of industrial 3D printers, recently announced the development of a digital production solution that enables the direct printing of mobile device antennae. This solution is based on Optomec’s proprietary Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics technology, an Additive Manufacturing (AM) process used to print electronics directly on to 3D surfaces. For this application, the Aerosol Jet technology is used to directly print 3D antennae onto plastic inserts and enclosures for smart phones and other devices. As well as functional benefits, such as reducing the overall thickness of the handheld devices, the new 3D-printed antenna solution may potentially also reduce logistics, material consumption and overall processing and offer health & safety and environmental benefits.
Ultimaking could learn from Leapfrog - Buying, Ordering and Delivery of Ultimaker - Official Ultimaker User Forum I joined their forum, as I have done this one ... in order to find out what support and feed back was going on. I do not currently own a 3D printer. I found nothing but one issue after another. (@ leapfrog) With regard to the creator model ... by memory ... one guy had to take to his machine with a grinder and cut a hole in it as the metal frame was touching the spool or interfering with the filament in some way ... something else about needing bearings. These issues have nothing to do with any type of learning curve. On the topic of learning curve ... Many of the folk buying into leapfrog don't appear to be as technically minded as those willing to build their own.

3 Crucial Principles Of Storytelling You Can Learn From Kevin Spacey + House Of Cards It is no secret that storytelling has become the pinnacle practice of 2015. So what can content marketers learn from some of the best stories going right now? Looking ahead to Friday and a new "House of Cards" release on Netflix, I began to think about the parallels between content marketing and traditional media (in this case television). In Kevin Spacey’s keynote from Content Marketing World 2014, he told a half hour story about the importance of storytelling using his own career as a vehicle and the stories of the actors he’s played along the way as the gasoline. I distinctly remember this being one of the most #meta speeches I’ve ever heard.
