The Vaquform is a Kickstarter project that hopes to add some digital technology to vacuum forming and also bring an industrial level of quality to your desktop. It goes far beyond the LCD interface. Vaquform brings high-end process control to desktop vacuum forming, turning it into a smart appliance fit for a modern engineering lab, design office, or artist studio. Kickstarter page:
Moving a product concept to the prototype stage remains an exciting step.
Adam Conner-Simons for MIT News: Anyone who’s watched drone videos or an episode of “BattleBots” knows that robots can break — and often it’s because they don’t have the proper padding to protect themselves. But this week researchers at MIT’s Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory(CSAIL) will present a new method for 3-D printing soft materials that make robots safer and more precise in their movements — and that could be used to improve the durability of drones, phones, shoes, helmets, and more. The team’s “programmable viscoelastic material” (PVM) technique allows users to program every single part of a 3D-printed object to the exact levels of stiffness and elasticity they want, depending on the task they need for it.

The 3D CAD model enabled client to easily visualize the design and suggest necessary changes quickly.
Why is accessible 3D printing so beneficial for first-time entrepreneurs? Read on for some answers.
With recent acquisitions in Systems Modeling, Cloud delivery, Data Analytics and Machine Learning, ESI has dramatically extended the customer value of its core business of Virtual Prototyping. Today, ESI enables its customers to close the loop between:
Everything from web design to order management to shipping - not to mention the actual manufacturing process - has to change to accommodate a market of one.
Since 3D printing the prototype cost $770 and took only two weeks, including both design and development, VCE completed its testing much sooner than traditional methods would have allowed.
