Full STEAM Ahead in Russia as FabLab Polytech Scientists Create 3D Printing DFKits for Schoolchildren

3D printing is a technology most adults are mesmerized and awed by. Many children today, though, already take it for granted as an accepted process for creating things. Both its simplicity and potential for innovation seem to make obvious sense for students of all ages who intuitively take to 3D design and printing. We see […]

Set Up Your Own Tend.ai Mini-Factory with a Robot Manager & Team of 3D Printers

It’s often said that while robots are able to do jobs that humans simply can’t, whether that’s because they are working in extreme or overtime conditions, sometimes robots are able to do the jobs we don’t want to do as well. Project management can be a stressful task—especially in manufacturing—when tight deadlines loom and everyone […]
