What may be the biggest build volume in additive manufacturing, at least for metal parts, is being done by Sciaky Inc. by combining an electron beam welding gun with wirefeed additive layering. It can make parts as large as 19 ft x 4 ft x 4 ft.

Green Building Sparks Battle for the Built Environment

Green Building Sparks Battle for the Built Environment | Top CAD Experts updates | Scoop.it
The explosive growth in green buildings over the past decade is flattening the built environment.

 

An interesting take on the greening of the built environment...

 

Until recently, building automation, lighting controls, fire safety and other base building systems were designed and deployed to support a single building service and operated independently on proprietary network and cables. Green building’s emphasis on integrated design and whole-building performance has accelerated the convergence of these silos into a single platform, transforming a fragmented, vertical value chain into an integrated, horizontal value chain.

Simply put, the building management business is becoming flat and doing so fast. This convergence of information and communications technology and physical infrastructure in the built environment is providing building owners and occupants with actionable information about a building or space that allows them manage that building or space more effectively.

Lego Robot Folds and Flings a Paper Airplane

NXTLOG user hknssn13 built this amazing paper airplane machine. My favorite part is the 4th stage, where four linear actuators make the final folds in the airplane. It looks sick when the entire assembly rises up!

This is an AMAZING engineering feat.  Great for CTE-STEM students to study and think about.

inovative ideas such as these making robotics available to the general public are ingenious in my opinion as they help society adapt to robotics aswell as bring the awe in seeing what you can create.
