Follow this 3D printed bouncy ball project, using 3D lattice structures to improve compliant consistency. http://bit.ly/2d7CbkP
When I got NinjaFlex working on one of my 3D printers, my first goal was was to make a bouncy ball. Sounds simple, right? I printed a simple sphere in a flexible filament. I was disappointed when I discovered that it did not yield great results. It bounced inconsistently, both in how high it bounced and where it went after impact. I soon realized that this was due to the infill pattern that it had been printed with by default. My slicer had given...

A series that promotes all 21 projects i.e., 21 open source IoT software projects (1st 4) AllSeen, Bug Labs, DeviceHive, DSA:
The Internet of Things market is fragmented, amorphous, and continually changing, and its very nature requires more than the usual attention to interoperability. It’s not surprising then, that open source has done quite well here -- customers are hesitant to bet their IoT future on a proprietary platform that may fade or become difficult to customize and interconnect.

Cronyism: Government Nullification of Official Corruption
 
The monopoly power to make the laws, enforce the laws, decide what the law means, and how it applies to specific cases, can and will be used to make Constitutions and democratic elections irrelevant.

“Laws control the lesser man, right conduct controls the greater one, and neither control politicians.” ~ Mark Twain
Hillary Clinton is above the laws. She was never going to be indicted. And now we know none of her friends had to worry, either.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen DIYers sending music over a laser beam but the brothers [Armand] and [Victor] are certainly in contention for sending the music the longest distance, 452 meter/1480 feet from their building, over the tops of a few…

One of the major reasons anyone would turn to a 3D printer, even if they have access to a machine shop, is that there are some shapes that are not possible to make with conventional “subtractive manufacturing” techniques. There are a few more obvious…

Hash browns were cooked to order. Bacon crispy. Waffle (kids) was slightly under-done. Bacon cheesesteak was spot-on.

BLT is awesome (adds Scottish salmon) and so are the Fish Tacos (spicy sundried tomato pesto is a brilliant touch). Beer selection is on the hoppy scale, with few Scottish malts to be found. Service is cheerful and attentive. A great neighborhood haunt.

Very consistent despite the diversity of teppanyaki chefs. Sushi is nice and fresh though limited selection.
