One of the main technical hurdle the current 3D printing technologies need to take is to go from open loop to closed loop control systems. Closed loop control will enable higher resolution and faster printing.
Blank canvas syndrome (BCS) is similar to what blank page syndrome is for writers — also called writer’s block. You do not know where to start. You have the tools or skills but there is no idea, no creativity. If you ask people what they would like to draw with 3D drawing software they have no idea. The blank canvas is staring in their face.
An overview of the 3D printing technologies and introduction of the most important concepts with regard to 3D printing technology.
Most technologies start out as very specialized and very expensive niche products and become mainstream after a decade or so. Computers, air conditioning and microwaves all started out as business technologies and are now standard household equipment. Will the same thing happen with 3D printing?
Third installment on the future of 3D printing. This post is about the possible next steps of 3D printing as a technology.
In my previous post about Future of 3D printing I wrote about the bigger effects of 3D printing on manufacturing. In this post I would like to go into the revolution of 3D printing itself as a technology.
3D printing has all the signs of being a genuine disruptive technology. Let’s see where it can take us.
While I am analyzing these pictures at work today I got the feeling I work for NASA instead of Shapeways. Take a look!
Nokia and Microsoft announced a partnership today. Together they will form a smartphone alliance. The high end profitable market of Nokia smart phones is moving to the Windows mobile platform. Nokia will move the Symbian platform which they used exclusively up until now to power the mid and low range models. The effect of this…
Artificial intelligence was one of the first buzzwords I can remember from the previous century. It promised a future with intelligent computers or devices which could understand you and act autonomously.Up until now we still do not use AI-enabled devices in our daily life. Why is that?
