3D has captured my imagination! First, 3D printers – able to make accurate, small-scale working models of pretty much anything you want to manufacture or produce – a relatively inexpensive way to prove your concept and market test it!
I have clients using the Maker Bot and it’s fascinating! The other day I saw them make a 3D nut and bolt to test with one of the products they manufacture – just a few hours time and voila! Certainly a dream product for R&D teams who need rapid prototyping of new products!
Personally, I’d like a 3D chocolate printer! Hershey recently unveiled their new 3D chocolate printer, produced in conjunction with 3D Systems.
- “Just draw in the air and you’ll be printing with plastic.
- Build anything your mind can make your hands draw.
- Draw, design, fabricate, dream, conquer – you can do anything with a 3Doodler.”
This video will show you how it works….. Yes, I think I have to have one……
