Beautiful Technological Art

My blog is mostly a collection of things I like so that I can go back and look at them later. I'm not really creating anything consistent and it is not my purpose to entertain.

If you want to know anything...ask.

Frozen Fantasy - Anna/Elsa (FF/Frozen Mashup) by SteveGibson


Prometheus did not suffer an eternity of torture on the mountain for giving mankind cooked meat just for me to turn around and eat carrots and grass

Remember his sacrifice, Prometheus died for our meat and the grill to cook it on.

Prototyping 3D printing method from HPI reduces construction time of model making by a tenth creating wireframe versions of forms - video embedded below:

WirePrint prints 3D objects as wireframe previews. By extruding filament directly into 3D space instead of printing layer-wise, it achieves a speed-up of up to a factor of 10, allowing designers to iterate more quickly in the early stages of design …

Even though considered a rapid prototyping tool, 3D printing is so slow that a reasonably sized object requires printing overnight. This slows designers down to a single iteration per day. With WirePrint, we propose to instead print low-fidelity wireframe previews in the early stages of the design process. Wireframe previews are 3D prints in which surfaces have been replaced with a wireframe mesh. Since wireframe previews are to scale and represent the overall shape of the 3D object, they allow users to quickly verify key aspects of their 3D design, such as the ergonomic fit.

The world’s first 3-D printed car took to the streets this weekend after being built in an amazingly short 44 hours. The vehicle, called Strati, was designed by Italian designer Michele Anoé, who won an international competition held by crowdsourcing carmaker Local Motors.  It was printed and rapidly assembled by a Local Motors team during a manufacturing technology show held last week in Chicago, then went on a drive on Saturday. 

Strati’s chassis and body were made in one piece out of a carbon fiber-impregnated plastic on a large-area 3-D printer. The machine put down layer after layer of the material at a rate of 40 pounds per hour.

This is another case of wow thats cool but a car cannot be 3D printed in a proper market. It takes too long to do each car and its not the whole car. All the moving parts need to be installed bu hand…its really just the frame. It’s grear for rapid prototyping but is shit for manufacturing on a large scale.
