The $30M Bet That Shapeways Becomes a Factory for Everyone | Wired Business Industrial 3-D printers cranking away at the Shapeways factory in New York’s Long Island City. Photo: Shapeways Venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz plays the investing game different from much of its VC cohort. Rather than scattering its money around a relatively large number of startups, the Silicon Valley firm places big bets on a handful of companies and industries. Today, Andreessen Horowitz is placing a very big bet, $30 million, on Shapeways and 3-D printing. Shapeways is doing for manufacturing, what the internet did for self-publishing, making it accessible to everyone, says Chris Dixon, the Andreessen Horowitz general partner who led the firm’s investment in the New York City-based company. For a fee, Shapeways offers anyone access to very expensive industrial-grade 3-D printers that can crank out objects ranging from jewelry to figurines and other original inventions in stainless steel, ceramic and plastic among other materials.

Make Your 3D Designs Come To Life | Cheap 3D Printing From Presspin Platonic solids The Platonic solids (here by OptimalControl) are defined as polyhedra (three dimensional solids) comprised of regular polygonal faces, arranged such that the same number come together at every vertex. The tetrahedron, octahedron, and icosahedron, each comprised of equilateral triangles, the cube made up of squares, and the dodecahedron made of regular pentagons, are the only polyhedra that match this description. These were described by Plato in the Timaeus dialogue, hence the name. He associated the first four with the elements fire, air, water, and earth, respectively, and the dodecahedron with the heavens. From the Timaeus: The first will be the simplest and smallest construction, and its element is that triangle which has its hypotenuse twice the lesser side.

Building Internet of Things | with open hardware 19930 Porsche 930 No. Model: 19930Pics: 1065Relased: 03/2019Type: R(-), Model Team The Porsche 930, better known as the Porsche 911 Turbo, is a sports car that was produced from 1974 to 1989 based on the Porsche 911. At its introduction, the vehicle was the fastest mass-produced sports car in Germany. The 930 was the first production sports car in which Porsche built a turbocharger. As in reality, my Porsche 930 built from LEGO® was the base for building the sports version 934/5. 3D Relief from BumpyPhoto Those of you that thought the 3D printed sculptures of unborn children were a bit strange (creepy) will probably get a kick out of this: 3D reliefs from 2D pictures. A company called BumpyPhoto will take your uploaded photo and make a 3D relief of it so that the subject matter of the photo stands out. With headquarters in Portland, Oregon and London, UK, theses picture poppers are making an international impression. The reliefs are printed in a plaster-like hard resin in 24-bit color and their detail is not bad. It’s not great; not as good as the picture you upload, but not bad. The bigger the relief, the more accurate it looks. Honestly, the first thing I thought of when I saw this video was Mission Impossible style disguises; take a picture of the person you want to impersonate, upload to BumpyPhoto, wait four weeks for analyzing, processing, and shipping, and papow you’ve got the creepiest Halloween costume of everyone that knows your best friend Dave. h/t: WebProNews Related
