Additive Manufacturing Podcast 3d Printed Electronics - Nike's "Printed" Shoe - Apples 3D Patents: CADimensions

Welcome to the second episode of the CADimensions Additive Manufacturing Podcast in front of our brand new Desktop Metal 3D Printer. Here’s what we talked about on the show:

 

Apple Patents

Our discussion starts with a couple of new patents Apple recently received involving 3d printing using triangular tessellation and 3D printing system patents using augmented reality.

-Apple Patent for Triangular Tessellation 3D Models Granted: https://all3dp.com/4/apple-patent-tri…

-Apple Wins Patent for 3D Printing System with ARKit: https://all3dp.com/apple-patent-3d-pr…

Nike

Nike’s 3D printed Elite shoe preparing for a wider release. They say it gives runners a 4% speed advantage within the first 2 hours of a race. The price ranges from $600-$1,200 which is much better than Adidas’ 3D printed shoe. https://3dprintingindustry.com/news/n…

3d Printed Electronics

These discuss 3d printed electronics and some discoveries in that field

-3D printed graphene scaffold offers highest-ever capacitance for a supercapacitor: https://www.3ders.org/articles/201810…

-Researchers 3D print custom-sized lithium-ion batteries: https://www.engadget.com/2018/10/17/r…

Happy Birthday, Thingiverse!

And Finally, I’d like to briefly mention that Thingiverse turned 10 this week, and quickly highlight what Thingiverse has done for 3d printing.
