THE MANY POSSIBILITIES OF A 3D PRINTER IN DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES

#technews   #technology   #technolgoynews
Hi:

My name is Jerry Reed and I teach computer programming at Valencia College in Orlando Florida.  I am particularly interested in Physical Computing ("Programming for REAL Reality"), having taught a Special Topics class in it, and in attempting to embed real world sensing and control projects into my other programming classes.  I'm a big fan of Arduino and TI microcontrollers and of course, of the Raspberry Pi.

I look forward to learning a lot more about the mechanical and constructional aspects of projects from folks in this community.

Thanks.

Ever wonder why fractals are called "fractals"? It's because they have "fractional dimension". This idea comes from noticing that when you scale a 2-dimensional object up by a factor of 2, its area increases by a factor of 4, but when you scale a 2-dimensional Sierpinski triangle up by 2, its area increases by a factor of 3. With a normal 2D object, if you scale it up by a factor of 3, you'd increase the area by a factor of 9, but when you scale a 2-dimensional Koch snowflake up by 3, its area increases by a factor of 4. So fractals don't behave like normal objects. They behave as if they have fractional dimension.
