CMU expert algorithm can predict biomaterial 3D printing parameters

At Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), researchers may have found a solution that makes the characterization of new 3D printer materials a breeze. An algorithm, developed by a team at CMU’s College of Engineering, is capable of sorting through possible parameters for soft-material 3D printing to identify the perfect settings for success. Termed the Expert-Guided Optimization (EGO) method, the […]

How To Make The Most of your Laser Cutting Materials

Browser-based vector nesting tool optimises laser cut layouts Fitting all of your laser cut parts so that they squish into the least possible area on your laser cutting template can be tricky. Most of us will approach this by trial-and-error, manually shifting objects around until it ‘looks about right’. While this will save a bit of […]
