Additive Manufacturing or 3D Printing has had a huge amount of hype in the last few years and in many cases has not lived up to expectation. This is because it is not a miracle manufacturing method for making anything and everything, but a different way of making things that has reached a maturity where for certain applications it is commercially viable. However, as with all manufacturing methods, design for manufacture is crucial. Understanding how that method works is key to that.

Experiencing Spock beam in, seeing virtual data like the coordinates of an incoming threat overlaid in the real world or being a blue character inside a virtual world were all just dreamy concepts teased to us through Hollywood blockbusters like Star Trek, Iron Man, Avatar and many more until very recently. What’s spurred the monumental evolution in the Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) space is an inflection point of graphics compute power, high-pixel density but small displays,

Millions of tons of plastic are polluting the world’s oceans. It reaches the oceans through rivers and waterways, and then accumulates in five high-concentration areas called gyres. Boyan Slat, a student at the Delft University of Technology, and his Ocean Cleanup team believe that it’s possible to remove most of the plastic from the oceans in only five years using a series of floating filtration platforms anchored to the ocean floor, and massive floating booms attached to the platforms.

When I go biking during the summer, I rely on the frame of my bicycle to withstand stresses such as vibration and impact. As I speed down the trail, I think about the engineers and their process of designing a product that adeptly serves the needs of their customers. How did they test out the bicycle to make sure it doesn’t fall apart if the path becomes rocky? If the bike falls over, how did they make sure that the pedals don’t fall off?
