Design News - CAD/CAM Corner - Objet's Largest 3D Printer Doesn't Lose Precision

Design News - CAD/CAM Corner - Objet's Largest 3D Printer Doesn't Lose Precision | Made Different | Scoop.it
The Objet1000 can print down to 16 microns, making it the most precise machine currently on the market.

Michael Dunham's curator insight, January 2, 2013 5:04 PM

To be fair, the statement: "Objet technology also features the industry's highest resolution, which really sets it apart from anything else. Materials printed from the machine are based on a 16 micron layering process, whereas Makerbot's Replicator 2 can achieve a quality within 100 micron layers." is a bit misleading.  


A 16 micron layer IS the highest in the "industry", however other manufactures such as 3D Systems also have machines that print at that layer thickness. 


Regardless... a 3.3 x 2.6 x 1.6 foot build is very impressive.

Innovation at Work: GE Innovation Yielded New Jobs, Products and Services in 2012 as the Jet Engine, MRI, and LED Celebrated their Anniversaries | GE Reports | Made Different | Scoop.it

Early in 2012, the MIT launched a two-year project designed to study links between innovation and manufacturing. The project, called Production in the Innovation Economy (PIE), argues that “prosperity only emerges when innovations are translated to a stream of new products and services, which are then scaled-up in a way that creates jobs and opportunities for the whole population.” GE is a good example of how this may work....

Jed Fisher's curator insight, January 2, 2013 10:33 AM

CSR’s Sirf Technologies division and WifiSLAM claim to have figured out how to map indoor locations when you’re walking with your mobile phone inside a building. I really hope that we get to see this work in practice (with good precision) in 2013. 

Having the ability to get to less than a meter precision inside a building is a very powerful technology breakthrough that would enable many more workflows and usecases. Currently GPS/Wifi is not precice enough for many workflows (only getting to around 3 meters at best).
