Drones and human

Posted on Updated on

Researchers at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, put their work to the test recently.

Researchers team built three custom drones such as dubbed Batman, Joker and Nightwing.

Rob Reid of JPL said, “We pitted our algorithms against a human You can actually see that the A.I. flies the drone smoothly around the course, whereas human pilots tend to accelerate aggressively, so their path is jerkier our autonomous drones can fly much faster, one day you might see them racing professionally!”

AI and 3D, 4D Printing have the ability to work like mankind does. This is a software humans are going to write code. We always need humans for improved technologies, especially in the medical field for better health. 🙂

McLAREN DEPLOYS STRATASYS ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING TO IMPROVE 2017 CAR PERFORMANCE

Posted on Updated on

 

Formula 1 cars race at very high speeds – up to 227 mph (365 km/h)– utilizing power units that reach a maximum of 15,000 revolutions per minute (RPM). We  love McLAREN cars. They are awesome. (please drive safely and not too fast, please don’t text and drive).

McLAREN deploys STRATASYS additive manufacturing to improve 2017 car performance. They 3D-printed a structural bracket to attach the hydraulic line on the MCL32 race car using Stratasys FDM technology, leveraging a Fortus 450mc Production 3D Printer with carbon-fibre-reinforced nylon material (FDM® Nylon 12CF).

“They are consistently modifying and improving our Formula 1 car designs,” said Neil Oatley, Design and Development Director, McLaren Racing. “So the ability to test new designs quickly is critical to making the car lighter and, more importantly, increasing the number of tangible iterations in improved car performance.

“If we can bring new developments to the car one race earlier – going from new idea to new part in only a few days – this will be a key factor in making the MCL32 more competitive. By expanding the use of Stratasys 3D printing in our manufacturing processes, including producing final car components, composite lay-up and sacrificial tools, cutting jigs, and more, we are decreasing our lead times while increasing part complexity.”

“Formula 1 is one of the world’s best proving grounds for our additive manufacturing solutions,” said Andy Middleton, President, Stratasys EMEA. “As the Official Supplier of 3D-Printing Solutions to the McLaren-Honda Formula 1 team, we are working closely together to solve their engineering challenges in the workshop, in the wind-tunnel, and on the track. We believe that this, in turn, will enable us to develop new materials and applications that bring new efficiency and capability to McLaren Racing and other automotive designers and manufacturers.”

Futurecraft 4D printing

Posted on Updated on

This is good news for flat feet and wide feet.

Carbon and Adidas are partners for production and manufacturing in the Futurecraft 4D.
They have developed the first additive manufacturing mass production footwear, making before impossible midsole geometries possible and paving the way for custom, high-performance shoes that meet each customer of the unique needs.

  Adidas will release 300 pairs of the Futurecraft 4D shoe to friends and family; more than 5,000 pairs are expected to release this Fall / Winter 2017 season. See below for the official photos of the Adidas Futurecraft 4D shoe
