In 3D printing processes like Stainless Steel and Ceramics, there is a Green State during the production process. During this part, the model is very brittle and fragile. The part needs to be
I was in a discussion about interviewing strategies and the merits of behavioral questions versus hypothetical questions. Behavioral questions start with “Tell me about a time when…” Hypothetical questions start with “What would
In the last two Blender updates, the Grease Pencil tool got a major facelift. The Grease Pencil was traditionally used for annotating 3D drawings. Now, it can also be used for animation. And

It seems like there are more and more designs in low resolution. Maybe I am just pay more attention to low resolution (or low poly) 3D objects because I work in 3D printing.
How expensive things can cost less. I bought my laptop in 2010. Before this computer, I’ve never owned a laptop that lasted more than 2 years. I’ve also never owned a
3D printing is changing the game. Rather, it is changing the players of the game. It used to be that we can bucket players into different segments—designers, shoppers, manufacturers. With 3D printing,
