New research reveals home 3D printing may not be dead

New research reveals home 3D printing may not be dead
New research by reichelt elektronik, highlights new, untapped potential for 3D printing at home. Over half of UK consumers (58%) say they would buy a home 3D printer to repair and replace household items or small parts. 3D printing applications in education and industry are well known but making our own 3D printed creations at home didn’t take off as originally predicted. Only 6% of UK consumers currently own a 3D printer.

Accurate 3D flight tracking

Accurate 3D flight tracking
The SI Tracker2 system from Specialised Imaging provides reports which have been used to precisely correlate high-speed video data with 3D visualisation and measurement information.  Traditionally for free flight, ballistic and rocket flight applications such as Earth re-entry space vehicle development and ballistic trajectory characterisation - engineers have had to use expensive Doppler radar equipment with complex software and on-board telemetry.
