Aprendam! Cursos Tech às Pázadas, e Design para Impressão 3D. E um Quadrópode Pololu-Arduino, imprimir Metal mais rápido, e consertem a Honda!

Um Site de onde podem aprender online, actualizar-se e testar o vosso nível de conhecimentos, e ainda por cima, com um Trial Grátis, é de lá ir a correr!
E isto com uma catrefada de Cursos, que podem ver, abaixo...
É muito bom.

Welcome to Pluralsight. The on-demand technology learning platform you count on to stay relevant, with tools that measure your skills and solve your problems—faster
We believe everyone should have the opportunity to build a career they’re passionate about. We’ve gone beyond the traditional education model to put the power back in your hands, because we believe learning shouldn’t be confined to a classroom, rigorous schedule or select minority.

Uma profissão de Futuro, certamente, será o Fabbing, e Designers que saibam desenhar em 3D, e ainda por cima com conhecimentos que os capacitem para a Impressão 3D do que criam, vão ter uma vantagem adicional...
Por isso, se puderem investir 2.695€ neste Mini-curso de 3 dias, é de arriscar:

Learn About Design for Additive Manufacturing with Wohlers Associates

Hanna Watkin 
Wohlers Associates and Materialise are offering a three-day course in design for additive manufacturing (DfAM) in Leuven, Belgium.
Would you like to learn more about designing for 3D printing? Consulting firm Wohlers Associates have teamed up with additive manufacturing specialists Materialise for a special course teaching valuable skills.
The three-day course is called Design for Additive Manufacturing (DfAM), and is intended for people who work in aerospace, automotive, medical, and industrial machinery.
The course will cost €2,695 for three days. This price includes both instruction and hands-on learning, as well as refreshments. It will take place at the Materialise headquarters location in Leuven, Belgium from May 31st to June 2nd, 2017.
“We are very happy to collaborate with Materialise, a company with an outstanding reputation and extraordinary track record,” said Terry Wohlers, principal consultant and president of Wohlers Associates. 
It will be the third such course from Wohlers and co; which was previously offered at the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center.

Cortesia da Pololu, eis um projecto que prova que se podem construír Protótipos e Projectos de Pesquisa bem sérios, com os Kits da Pololu, e o Arduino!

Semi-autonomous 14-DOF quadrupeds using Mini Maestro
Customer Lujing Cen’s team built two semi-autonomous 14-DOF quadrupeds using Mini Maestros for their high school class project at the California Academy of Mathematics and Science. The project syllabus includes making two separate robot designs and three total robots that work together. These quadrupeds were the “pack robots” described in the syllabus. An 18-channel Mini Maestro USB servo controller controls the twelve leg and two head servos. The project code includes a rewrite of Pololu’s Maestro C# USB SDK library in Python. The robot uses a camera and an RFID scanner to track its targets. 

Tinha alguém de pensar nisto, e os bacanos da Universidade do Arizona, e da Pensivânia, pensaram, então, porque não imprimir em Metal com estruturas de suporte solúvies, com n Impressão 3D de Plástico?
E foi o que fizeram:

Metal 3D Printing is About to Get Faster Thanks to Dissolving Supports
Hanna Watkin

An assistant professor at Arizona State University has developed a method of printing dissolvable metal support structures. This breakthrough could make end-to-end metal printing faster.
Metal 3D printing is fast on its way to becoming a mainstay option for heavy duty industrial 3D printing. But, it can be a laborious process involving copious amounts of post-processing.
However, an assistant professor of 3D Nanofabrication at Arizona State University (ASU) might have a solution. The man behind this development is Owen Hildreth., who has a mechanical engineering degree and Ph.D. in nanofabrication materials engineering.
However, he didn’t turn his mind to it until dropping in on a talk by visiting professor, Timothy Simpson, who posed: “If anyone knows of a water-soluble metal we could use for metal AM support structures, talk to me afterwards.”
Simpson is a research professor at Pennsylvania State University’s Center for Innovative Materials Processing through Direct Digital Deposition. 

Ora está algo de diferente, para acabar, por hoje, como consertar os assentos das vossas Motas, principalmente as que são Clássicos, ou seja, caríssimas de reparar:

Vintage Motorcycle Seat Restoration - CB200
This Instructable is about creating a new seat for my motorcycle, a 1975 Honda CB200T.
I picked up a trashed old seat on eBay because my current seat is in good condition, and there's no sense in tearing apart a perfectly good seat. Plus then I wouldn't be making my bike inoperable while working on this project.
The main reason I wanted to change my seat is to lower standover height, since I'm extra short. I also welcomed the opportunity to customize any aspect of my bike, since I am a motorcycle beginner.
