Mouser Electronics, Grant Imahara and Local Motors Showcase Promise of Self-Driving Technology With 3D-Printed Vehicle Equipped With Drone Technology
Mouser Electronics Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, together with Local Motors and celebrity engineer Grant Imahara today showcased the final build of a transformative 3D-printed vehicle with drone-launching technology. The Mouser version of the Local Motors Strati is the latest project from Mouser's highly popular Empowering Innovation Together™ program.
Bosch plant in Mondeville saved at least 80,000 euros over the past several months, thanks to the usage of Zortrax M200 3D printers. Zortrax M200 3D Printers accelerate the process of designing, prototyping and fabrication of specialized tools, which are then used by factory workers in the assembly of modules or small parts of electronic devices.
Ability to rapidly design and cost effectively test a wide range of new fashion frames is a game changer for Safilo's own brands - Safilo, Carrera and Polaroid - and for such design houses as Dior, Hugo Boss, Jimmy Choo and many others 3D printed eyewear prototypes combining full colors, textures and transparencies right off the 3D printer are ideal for customer presentations Video: For Safilo, the Stratasys J750 3D Printer enables increased creativity, a larger variety of design options while significantly improving time to market
Stephen Shankland for CNet: Get ready for the third chapter in the book of Silicon Valley. During the first chapter, innovation in Silicon Valley was about atoms, carving up silicon wafers into the electronic transistors that started the computing revolution. The second one, more ethereal, brought the triumph of internet services like Facebook and Google. To be competitive now, a company must blend both approaches. That's the view of HP Chief Engineer Chandrakant Patel, who rose through the HP Labs ranks over 30 years to secure 151 patents and become the company's chief engineer. "The 21st century will require Silicon Valley to be a cyber-physical valley," Patel said. Cont'd...
The 3D printing industry is expected to change nearly every industry it touches, completely disrupting the traditional manufacturing process. As a result, the projected value of the industry is expected to explode in the near future
SME, in connection with its RAPID + TCT 3D technology event, worked with FARO Technologies, Inc., Direct Dimensions, Inc., and the NextManufacturing Center at Carnegie Mellon University, to take the first-ever 3D scan of the Roberto Clemente Bridge. This scan will be used to create 3D printed miniature replicas of the bridge, to be used as puzzle pieces at the RAPID + TCT event May 9 to 11 in Pittsburgh.
Manufacturing technology company joins with global leader in automotive engineering to unleash auto manufacturing innovation
Conner Forrest for TechRepublic: University researchers were able to sabotage a drone by hacking the computer controlling the 3D printer that made its parts, according to a research paper released Thursday. By changing the design of the propellor before printing, they caused the $1,000 drone to "smash into the ground" and break, shortly after take off. The paper, titled dr0wned - Cyber-Physical Attack with Additive Manufacturing, was a joint effort from researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU), the University of South Alabama, and Singapore University of Technology and Design. In the paper, the researchers explained how they committed the cyberattack, and what the attack could mean for the future of 3D printing security. Using a phishing attack, the researchers gained access to the PC that was connected to the 3D printer. Cont'd...
Robert Channick for the Chicago Tribune: GE is opening a microfactory in Chicago to turn big industrial ideas into small-batch prototypes. The Chicago manufacturing facility, set to open in December, will be the first for Fuse, a new GE crowdsourcing initiative to create and build innovative industrial products. One of the first challenges on the Fuse drawing board, for example, is finding a new way to quickly inspect a hot jet engine between flights. "The idea of reaching out to the online community really accelerates how we introduce new products," said Axel Grippo, Fuse's inaugural general manager. The microfactory will be housed inside the mHub technology incubator, and will employ a staff of about 15 to 20 once manufacturing gets up to speed, Grippo said. The first prototype is expected to roll out early next year. Cont'd...
