Lurching forward with the gait of a bow-legged frog, it grappled the starboard blast door, slowing the ship in its departure. Lacking the chin flap fur shavings of the eldersquirrel, we would need to increase rear thruster capacity with a small squeeze of these links. David Aguero – Massive, wonderful scenes of distant planets, spacecraft,…

Lenovo ThinkStation P520 Workstation Review

It’s time to crack open a can of beef jerky, shutter the windows, and snuggle up with a tower workstation again. That’s not weird at all because this workstation happens to be a Lenovo ThinkStation P520. Yes, quell your exuberance. As you may know, the P Series is Lenovo’s top o’ the line PC family…

With all the quarantining and disease spread lately, you’ve probably thought, “When’s the next flight off this crazy planet?!” Alien abduction volunteers? “Take Wuhan!” Hey now! The virus has already spread. “Blow the planet!” Calm thyself. “I’m outta here!” Ok, granted you’ll take all your bacteria and viruses with you, but should you be planning…

When the opening collapsed and the purple sludge seeped past the ivy-lined crevices, time almost seemed to stop, frozen in a moment where we could neither see the other side nor extract the bag of happy from its resting place behind the swollen kneebone of these links. Dániel Taylor – Rich, surreal, 3-dimensional, cel-shaded illustration…

Jetman Dubai Jetwing

If you’re schemin’ away over your lunch hour, hatching plans for jet-powered human flight, set down that burrito and pay attention to the latest from Jetman Dubai. We’ve seen a gradual progression of the jet-powered wing concept since Yves Rossy’s experimental flights as ‘Jet Man’. It gained him notoriety in 2006 with a plane-deployed flight…

Well, well, well. Tech Soft 3D, the developer of the HOOPS family of CAD data translation, 3D PDF, visualization, and toolkits for web, desktop, and mobile, has just announced “significant investment” from global, technology-focused investment firm Battery Ventures. This represents their first bit of funding since the Oregon-based company’s founding in 1996. Tech Soft 3D…

Eric Haddad (LinkedIn) is the founder and Pilot in Command of 3DAeroventures, a Texas-based outfit specializing in 3D printed RC aircraft. Some are traditional, some are experimental, all show what the future holds for RC aeronautic design. 3D printing is no stranger to prop-powered aircraft, with many an STL file available for various types and…

If you’re a youngin’ whose neurons have just myelinated or an educator who’s responsible for bludgeoning their brain tissue with knowledge, there’s a 3D printer option you’ll want to add to your lab list – A RIZE 3D Printer. If you’re unfamiliar with RIZE, they came on the scene in 2017, introducing the RIZE ONE…

A thickly knitted mist settled around the aft cargo bay. We could override the shield group, leaving our cover exposed, but ensure the vacuum pods would be primed for expelling anything that would try to siphon out these links. Encho Enchev – Futuristic concept ships? Yes, please. And Sofia-based 3D artist, Encho Enchev, has some…

You would think this article is from a decade or two ago, but no. It’s really about dual-screen and CAD software using dual-screens… but not like you’re used to. This week, Microsoft released the preview SDK for their dual-screen Surface Duo, with the Window 10X version coming next month. Along with this, they’re introducing new…

Frogs chirped amidst the flooded bank of a moon-drenched pond. Little was known about when they arrived or whence they came. One thing was certain though, they seemed to grow louder with closer proximity to these links. Gernot Buder – Incredible work all around but the clean lines and contrast in his concept work (especially…

The crack and split of the paper cunkles ended as quickly as it started. Stacks upon stacks lined the warehouse with only the edges charred, but their fleshy interiors were still roomy enough to move around in plus forage enough to keep from freezing after the sun set and all was frosted with the icy…

Seems those New Year’s Eve champagne corks over at Autodesk had an electrical surprise attached to them. The January Fusion 360 product update isn’t out yet but notifications are going out about new subscription benefits. If you’re a user of Fusion 360, your subscription now includes access to Autodesk EAGLE, the electronic design automation software…

When the curtain of rock fell, the display was more magnificent than we ever could imagine. There amidst the rubble of the petrified fabric rose the ancient light vines of the Shogereth, growing for centuries from the earthen orb of these links. Li Shuxing – If I had to define epic and show you a…

It’s been long suspected that Onshape would eventually land in the hands of a larger enterprise product development (or non-product development) company — that day is here. PTC has just announced the acquisition of Onshape, web-based 3D product design platform, “for approximately $470 million, net of cash acquired.” The deal is moving fast, expecting to…

Setting off toward the sun, stilting his was down the silted, ash lined maze of a murky mountainside trial, Fitz McBunkle… charged. Though his forearms were lined with blades and his single eye ablaze, it was a slight hesitation in his smirk, a mis-step and a burp, that caused one stilt to split and skewer…

Ivana-Besevic-art

The massive Grigglus Quod bent beneath the bridge to avoid the dust storm’s gale. While some may have thought their presence unnerving, their arrival produced a strange warmth that made the fingertips of everyone above the water glow like the petals of a lightning flower that had been soaked in these links.  Ivana Besevic -…

That Xometry, they’re just not satisfied to bring you nearly every mill, print, metal, and mold option available. They had to go and bag a partnership with Carbon — you know, the company that dropped jaws with their breakthrough CLIP tech that prints high-res parts 25-100x faster. Yeah, well, if you’ve seen a Carbon printer,…

The landscape spread before his peglegs, all nine of them, some wrapped to his hobbled trochanters with makeshift tarsal claws cut from barnside tin. He’d seen decades of fighting, hair matted, antennae torn, but still plenty of seeds scraped from the hulls of these links. Aleks Petruk – Huge color for huge scenes that you’ll…

The oil-charred smell of the tar post pile flared the nostril of ever horse and rider that passed by. The wind was thick with the odor with the sand whipping the brows of the watchers on the hill who the vinelings kept control over with these links. Su Jian – So many new pieces since…
