5D Printing?

5D Printing? | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
So we’re all used to printing our objects from a build plate upwards, but what about printing from 5 different axes? This method of Additive Manufacturing is proving to have some pretty useful strengths, including strength in the literal sense.

William Yerazunis, Ph.D., Senior Principal Research Scientist of Mitsubishi Electric Research Labs (MERL) has been experimenting with this technology to look at making 3D printed parts stronger. The aim for this project was to make printed parts strong in the areas where they need strength.

Conventional 3D printing creates objects in horizontal layers, and these layer create weak points. if there is a force pushing in the opposite direction of the direction these layers have been printed, such as up and through a part, it forces these layers apar
Carlos Fosca's insight:

Interesante desarrollo de la manufactura digital que evoluciona de una impresión sobre tres ejes a una que permite el movimiento del componente a imprimir sobre cinco ejes haciendo que el material depositado tenga un mejor ordenamiento macromolecular sobre sus zonas que serán más solicitadas mecánicamente.

It’s time for men to champion women in tech

It’s time for men to champion women in tech | Managing Technology and Talent for Learning & Innovation | Scoop.it
But when women are supported, encouraged, and funded to lead, they excel. In fact, tech companies led by women are more capital-efficient and achieve, on average, a 35 percent higher return on investment than firms led by men, according to a Kauffman Foundation report.
Carlos Fosca's insight:

A pesar que tan sólo un 15% de las mujeres se encuentran laborando en campos tecnológicos en las compañías más grandes del mundo, los estudios demuestran que las mujeres no sólo pueden participar y aportar tanto como los hombres en el campo de la tecnología sino que además cuando las empresas tecnológicas son dirigidas por mujeres su retorno de la inversión se incrementa en 35% respecto de aquellas dirigidas por hombres. Las estadísticas sin embargo, nos dicen también que la gran mayoría sufre de discriminación y acoso sexual en este tipo de empresas. Deberíamos empezar por generar una política de discriminación positiva y permitir el acceso a más mujeres en carreras tecnológicas en la educación superior y fomentar el respeto, la dignidad y la igualdad de oportunidades de la mujer desde el vientre de la madre.
