On this upcoming Wednesday and Thursday, from the 18th till 19th of November, the annual 3D Printing Live 2015 sponsored by IDTechEx is being held in Santa Clara, California. Located in the heart of the Silicon Valley, this event will bring together the current and future markets and technologies of 3D Printing.
We’re proud to announce that 3DprinterOS CEO John Dogru will be sharing his vision with a speech about “Envisioning the Virtual Factory of the Future”. John’s talk starts just before the noon on Thursday, 11:40 am in Room 210. More and detailed information can be found here.
This year the conference spans over 2 consecutive days where full range of state-of-the-art technologies will be covered, including many world first announcements. With over 200 exhibitors and 3,000 attendees expected under one roof, this is the largest event on emerging technologies in additive manufacturing.
When you sit down at a restaurant and order a steaming, medium-rare New York strip, you usually expect that steak to have at one point in time actually to have been attached to an animal. The same applies to a pork chop, or fried chicken. While that might have been true in the past, things might be changing, particularly if the 3D printed food industry takes off the way some are expecting. Not sure what 3D printed food is or why someone would want to eat something that came out of a printer, rather than off the hoof or out of the ground?
HP – the name is synonymous with printing technology, although it’s also become a household name in terms of desktops, laptops and, at least to some extent, tablet computers. However, times are changing and HP has had to change with them. The significantly decreasing market share for desktops and laptops combined with HP’s inability to create a tablet that saw more than lukewarm enthusiasm from consumers has had an enormous impact on its profitability. In a recent press release, the company announced how it would handle that impact. Apparently, it will split itself into two separate firms.
This past weekend was Maker Faire 2014 in New York. Often referred to as “The Greatest Show and Tell on Earth,” this years show did not disappoint. Beyond featuring some of the most innovative companies in the 3D Printing world, Maker Faire brings together the best and the brightest makers across the world to showcase the wide variety of projects they are working on.
Here are some sights from our visit:
e-NABLE is a global community of over 1500 members collaborating to make free 3d-printed prosthetic hands available to all who need them. Many of these hands go to children, who face difficulties with traditional prosthetics, due to the fact that they are constantly outgrowing them.
Part of the fun in building 3DPrinterOS is testing our 3D Printer operating system with the many printers available in the world. Even though we are around a wide variety of 3D Printers every day, we still get excited every time a new one makes it into the office and gets tested.
Aaron picked up a MakerBot Replicator 2 yesterday and documented the unboxing to printing process at his home in New York.
