Graphic 3D printed arts from HP

—————————————————–


Single printed part can have so many colors they use To produce truly functional parts, it’s important to ensure that the material has been properly fused and that part edges are smooth and well-defined.

In 3D design and printing, a voxel represents a value on a regular grid in a three-dimensional space. By controlling the processes of each individual voxel through agents, HP Multi Jet Fusion can produce parts that can’t be made by other methods.

Taking advantage of HP’s in-depth knowledge of color science, HP’s 3D printers could in the future selectively print a different color at each volumetric pixel. A single 3D printed part could have literally millions of colors.

But more than just full color printing of functional parts, HP’s multi-agent system enables a fundamentally different approach to unlock the full potential of 3D printing. HP’s Multi Jet Fusion technology could enable design and manufacturing possibilities that surpass the limits of our imagination. 🙂

Investing in 3D Printing: 3D Printing Robotics and Technology Fund

——————————————————————————————

The first ever mutual fund focused on 3D printing and additive manufacturing was started in January 2014 and called 3D printing and Technology Fund.  In June 2015, the fund was renamed to 3D Printing Robotics and Technology Fund.  The fund is managed by 3D Printing Fund Advisers, LLC, with Alan M. Meckler as the Lead Portfolio Manager and John M. Meckler as Co-Portfolio Manager.  The fund can be bought online from  Schwab, Scottrade, Vanguard, or from the fund’s website http://www.3dpfund.com/.  The fund has Institutional Class shares (TDPIX) and Investor Class shares (TDPNX).  The top holdings of the fund include Stratasys, Autodesk, Dassault Systemes, Hewlett-Packard Co., General Electric Co., and so on.  Some of the larger companies such as General Electric Co. are included since they have been acquiring companies focused on 3D printing technology.

This is not an investment advice.  Before investing, please consult the prospectus of the fund.  Please visit the fund’s website (www.3dpfund.com) for further details.
