Nanoscribe Will Sell a Micro 3-D Printer That Creates Tiny Structures in Seconds Nanoscribe, a spin-off from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology in Germany, has developed a tabletop 3-D microprinter that can create complicated microstructures 100 times faster than is possible today. “If something took one hour to make, it now takes less than one minute,” says Michael Thiel, chief scientific officer at Nanoscribe. While 3-D printing of toys, iPhone covers, and jewelry continues to grab headlines (see “The Difference Between Makers and Manufacturers”), much of 3-D printing’s impact could be at a much smaller scale. Micrometer-scale printing has shown promise for making medical and electronic devices. Thiel says it should be possible to speed up his company’s microprinting technique even more in the future. Printing microstructures with features a few hundred nanometers in size could be useful for making heart stents, microneedles for painless shots, gecko adhesives, parts for microfluidics chips, and scaffolds for growing cells and tissue.
The Printer That Can Print A 2,500 Square Foot House In 20 Hours. We have seen huge advancements in 3D printing. We’ve even seen oversized wrenches printed that measure 1.2 meters in length. Now, we can print an entire 2,500 sqft house in 20 hours. In the TED Talk video below, Behrokh Khoshnevis, a professor of Industrial & Systems Engineering at the University of Southern California (USC), demonstrates automated construction, using 3D printers to build an entire house in 20 hours. In manufacturing we use a process called CAD/CAM (computer-aided design / computer-aided manufacturing). 3D models are designed on a computer and then manufactured using CNC Machines or 3D printers. In this video, we see a prototype of a machine called ‘Contour Crafting’ Michael Cooney Michael Cooney, the founder of EngNet, worked as a project engineer for many years sourcing equipment.

The focus of the exhibit is on the variety of ways artists explore the cup, in functional, sculptural, traditional and non-traditional forms. Thank you! Pam Eisenmann- Co-CuratorJoan Ulrich- Co-CuratorDale Marhanka-Ceramics Director Cups are probably one of the most unassuming, yet challenging forms to make. Potters seem to be quite particular about what they like about cups and why. I was so inspired to see such a diverse range of cup forms, surfaces, decoration and building processes. Each of us will have different visceral reactions to different pots based on our own personal histories.

Deep Watering Tomatoes for a Bumper Crop | Reclaim, Grow, Sustain As the plant that often seems to be the central highlight of the summer gardening season for most folks, everyone wants the biggest and shiniest tomatoes possible. So there are no shortage of tips and tricks out there to develop the size and sheen of tomatoes. But most of these tips and tricks only slightly improve the plant's production, many of them seeming to do nothing at all - mental bias and imagination can go a long way in supporting useless tricks.

Dig a hole on either side of where you're going to have a tomato plant. Transplant/plant your tomato in between the pipes.
