I was watching CBS News on TV this morning. It drew my full attention. They did a story on the latest 3-D printer. It made the earlier ones compared with this new one look like Fred Flintstone’s car compared with a Lamborghini.
It’s very fast. It prints hard and soft materials. It can print cushioning parts with air spaces molded in. It even prints complex parts with moving pieces incorporated!
It’s the 3-D printer baby of Chemist Joe DeSimone, called the M1.
Here’s an excerpt from the CBS News article I’ve linked below.
“How is this technology being looked upon in that 3-D printing community?” Blackstone asked.
“They walked up to the industry and dropped a grenade and walked away,” Legacy Effects lead systems engineer Jason Lopes said.
Will this revolutionize the way car parts are made, ordered, and stocked?
P.S Maybe one of you can find a video of the show. I don’t have the PC firepower.
