Physna: Compare thousands of 3D models in seconds,
According to Physna’s CEO Paul Powers and Glenn Warner, “Through revolutionary artificial intelligence, Physna uses advanced algorithms to dissect and analyze 3D objects in the blink of an eye.
Many companies have collectively spent billions of dollars on this problem. The reason that Physna is the first to actually fix it is that we used a fundamentally different type of technology.
Compare your IP with others in seconds, ensuring that you’re using the correct models and nobody else is using your designs. Promptly determine if a 3D object matches your standards, allowing you to get to market quicker. Find any 3D object in seconds, old or new, helping to keep department and operation costs to a minimum. Compare any two models instantly and see exactly how much they match with total accuracy and reliability. We call those facets. Everything in nature can be broken down into triangles. We basically analyze the relationship of facets to each other and to the surrounding environment.”
According to Dr. Alex Morgan, Principal at Khosla Ventures and Dr. Melanie Matheu, Prellis Biologics’ co-founder and CEO, “Regenerative medicine has made enormous leaps in recent decades. However, to create complete organs, we need to build higher-order structures like the vascular system. Prellis’ optical technology provides the scaffolding necessary to engineer these larger masses of tissues. With our investment in Prellis, we’re supporting an initiative that will ultimately produce a functioning lobe of the lung, or even a kidney, to be used in addressing an enormous unmet global need.
The human tissue engineering is the ability to build complex tissues with working vascular systems. The future of regenerative medicine revolves around harnessing the power of our own cells as therapeutics and building the tissues to keep them alive. Khosla Ventures is the perfect investor to support our merging of deep tech and cutting-edge regenerative medicine. With this technology in hand, we can begin to ask questions about real 3D cell biology that have never been asked before.”
Legal issues in additive manufacturing.
According to Professor of Engineering Design and Manufacturing and director of the AMD program Timothy W. Simpson, Paul Morrow “Additive manufacturing is disrupting product design and how we manufacture parts. It’s also disrupting how we protect our intellectual property. Most engineers are not prepared to think about the impact this will have on how their company will deliver new products and services with AM.”
According to Christopher Higgins, partner and co-leader of the 3D Printing Group at Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP,” As an engineer, having an understanding of legal issues that may arise in additive manufacturing can make you an invaluable asset to a company. It is a skill set that most engineers do not have when exiting school, which makes this course a unique opportunity at Penn State.”
According to Brenna McCornac, a student currently enrolled in the course and an additive manufacturing engineer at Cumberland Additive, “As a working engineer, I feel that this is a valuable knowledge base to have. I don’t believe that many engineers have the opportunity to learn a lot about the law, especially within their specific field. Those of us participating in this class will be uniquely equipped to work effectively in a corporate setting or start their own business, having a good basis of legal knowledge pertaining to additive manufacturing.”
More than 55 interior parts for the Lightyear One are 3D printed.
According to Lex Hoefsloot, CEO of Lightyear announces and Robert Llewellyn, ” gets an exclusive first look at the Lightyear One hyper-efficient luxury sedan, a partially solar-powered electric car. And gets to experience it as one of the first passengers!
When Solar Team Eindhoven won the world solar challenge in Australia driving a 4 seater 100% solar-powered car over 3,000 kilometers, no one would have believed that a handful of years later they could come up with this.
Lightyear One. A spacious hyper-efficient partially solar-powered electric car.
We know the future is electric, could it be solar electric.”
