3D para Injecção, para todos! E Algodoo, esboçem a máquina, mais Iris, um Drone acessível para filmar

Ao tempo que eu já andava a dizer isto, e lá alguém o fez;
Uma Impressora 3D imprime num Plástico duríssimo, Moldes de Injecção encaixáveis, e podem-se assim produzir peças em pequenas séries, ao preço da uva mijona!
Protótipos, objectos repetidos, como em jogos de construcção e outros, peças caríssimas, devido a Taxas, Réplicas para Escolas e Pequenos Museus... 
Pequenas séries, de objectos de Autor, até podem ser numeradas, como a Serigrafia?
Agora, já podem!

See How HASCO 3D Prints Quick-Change Injection Molds to Set New Price/Performance Benchmark Michael Swack

Stratasys 3D printing is an agile solution for designing, testing and manufacturing injection molds.  3D printed injection molds are fairly low cost, quick turnaround method of testing mold designs and injected materials prior to mass production. And here’s a major new innovation that’s further facilitating economic low volume production – HASCO’s new K3500 quick-change mold system. It employs Stratasys 3D printed injection molds, enabling molders to cost-effectively produce low volumes of injection molded parts for samples, prototypes and small production runs.

HASCO 3D prints the inserts with Stratasys’ ultra-tough Digital ABS material using the Objet500 Connex Multi-material 3D Printer. With a 3D printed mold insert taking only hours to produce, molders can make design modifications to the product for a fraction of the time and cost of conventional tooling methods.  

Se andam às voltas com uma ideia, que tal um Simulador de Máquinas, de fácil manuseamento, e de Download Grátis?
Pois cá o têem, Algodoo, mais uma ferreamenta para o Engenhocas, e até funciona no Linux, se tiverem o Wine, e baixarem a versão para Windows.

Algodoo creates a new synergy between science and art
Algodoo is a unique 2D-simulation software from Algoryx Simulation AB. Algodoo is designed in a playful, cartoony manner, making it a perfect tool for creating interactive scenes. Explore physics, build amazing inventions, design cool games or experiment with Algodoo in your science classes. Algodoo encourages students and children’s own creativity, ability and motivation to construct knowledge while having fun. Making it as entertaining as it is educational. Algodoo is also a perfect aid for children to learn and practice physics at home.
FunctionalityWith Algodoo you can create simulation scenes using simple drawing tools like boxes, circles, polygons, gears, brushes, planes, ropes and chains. Easily interact with your objects by click and drag, tilt and shake. Edit and make changes by rotating, scaling, moving, cutting or cloning your objects.
Physical elementsYou can also add more physics in your simulation like fluids, springs, hinges, motors, thrusters, light rays, tracers, optics and lenses. Algodoo also allows you to explore and play around with different parameters like gravity, friction, restitution, refraction, attraction, etc.
Analyze and visualizeFor deeper analysis you can also show graphs or visualize forces, velocities and momentum. You can also enhance your visualization by showing X/Y components and angles.
Algobox – Sharing scenesIn Algobox, our scene library with over 50 000 scenes, you can easily save and share your creations with friends or browse and download other user made scenes. Algobox is easily accessed from within Algodoo or from this website under Scenes.
CommunityWith a large and active community, engaging educators, parents and kids you can discuss and share your thoughts about Algodoo.
TechnologyAlgodoo is based on the latest technologies, from Algoryx Simulation AB, for interactive multiphysics simulation, including variational mechanical integrators and high performance numerical methods.
Algodoo runs on Windows and Mac OS. Algodoo is optimized for the Intel® powered convertible Classmate PC and interactive whiteboard systems like SMART Board. 

Não é muito caro, mas já não é um Brinquedo, se querem começar a gravar Vídeos aéreos, podem começar por menos de 500 Euros, com este Quadracóptero.
Vejam a Loja online que, tem outros Drones, e uma data de coisas boas: 

The 3DR IRIS+ is your aerial passport: all you need to get started shooting photos and video from incredible new perspectives. Powered by 3DR’s world famous autopilot, IRIS+ is a robot that will automatically fly itself where you tell it to go, while keeping a camera dead steady with two-axis gimbal stabilization.

  1. Is it true..??
    Injection molding (British English: moulding) is a manufacturing process for producing parts from both thermoplastic and thermosetting plastic materials. Material is fed into a heated barrel, mixed, and forced into a mold cavity where it cools and hardens to the configuration of the mold cavity. [1] After a product is designed, usually by an industrial designer or an engineer, molds are made by a moldmaker (or toolmaker) from metal, usually either steel or aluminium, and precision-machined to form the features of the desired part. Injection molding is widely used for manufacturing a variety of parts, from the smallest component to entire body panels of cars.

    1. Well as the article says, it's an extremely hard Plastic that's 3D printed, and the Printer's not a Makerbot, but a Professional Objet Printer: "HASCO 3D prints the inserts with Stratasys’ ultra-tough Digital ABS material using the Objet500 Connex Multi-material 3D Printer."
