The Future of 3D CAD Virtual Reality

January 11, 2016

Is CAD Virtual Reality - eh Real?

This past Wednesday, Oculus began accepting preorders for the consumer version of their virtual reality headset. Development kits have been available for some time now, but this marks a move into a much wider market for Virtual Reality. Google and Samsung have also hopped on board with their own versions of VR headsets. Google has been pushing the boundaries and back in 2014 even put together a $25 kit for using phones for VR

Fact Checking the HP Multi Jet Fusion 3D Printer Technology Event

February 3, 2015

As HP took the stage last October to announce their Multi Jet Fusion 3D printing technology, media reporters were looking for a few key answers:

  • When will HP’s 3D printer using this technology ship;
  • What’s the performance;
  • What’s the cost, and the big question;
  • Will it radically change the 3D printing industry?

All good questions, but unfortunately, we won’t have definite answers until at least 2016, which is the earliest that the first iteration of an HP 3D printer with Multi Jet Fusion was announced to ship. But that didn’t stop HP­­—or in some cases the media—from creating a large amount of hype, including the seemingly certain idea that HP would be turning the industrial 3D printing world upside down.

It’s generally risky to say any new technology that’s over a year away will be radically changing an industry. Yet maybe the announcement simply makes business sense for today’s HP, which is preparing to split into two companies (Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, and HP Inc.). There seems to be an effort with this 3D printing announcement to demonstrate innovation and new ideas coming from a company that has become best known for desktop printers and PCs. Because of this, we decided to do some fact checking of our own.
