3D PRINTING HAS REACHED A NEW HIGH

 THE BLADE: WORLD’S FIRST 3D PRINTED SUPERCAR

If you’ve been keeping up with the world of 3D printing and the things that have been created using the process, then you’re probably as hugely impressed by the medium as we are. Everything from phone covers and lampshades to working guns and guitars have been printed out, so in terms of what can be created, the world is our 3D oyster.

And now here we are with The Blade, the world’s first 3D printed supercar, created by San Fransisco firm Divergent Microfactories, who built the car like a giant Lego experiment, printing out the individual components for the car that they needed before putiting the entire thing together with carbon rods.

Another bonus is the manufacturing of the vehicle itself, using the method of 3D printing will significantly reduce the level of pollution that normally goes hand in hand with the mass production of vehicles like this. That, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a win-win!

NASA Game Changing 3D Printing success really matters

Last night I tweeted a link to the Press Release from NASA regarding their success with  testing a rocket engine injector made through additive manufacturing, or as we say these days,  3D printing. What surprised me was the reaction I got via re-Tweets, messages and people just saying 'wow!'. I think what caught people's attention was the potential highlighted by the success in NASA's test, the potential for manufacturing and for business.

Social Media: quality always tops quantity

In recent years I have had the privilege to speak at a number of different events on Social Media. Typically the area of greatest interest has always been Facebook. The same question always pops up during the Q&A part - “I don’t have a budget for Facebook, how do I get to 100,000 fans?” To be fair, there is not one answer to this question for every industry but I will try to give you an answer that should set you on the right path.
