3D in Review for 1/30 - 2/5, 2016 "Magic Leap's Reality Distortion Field"


After another 794 million dollar round of investment, and continued obtuse verbiage from Abovitz, it was time to pour over the actual "Light Field" patent and determine if this can really be pulled off and why the simple YouTube demo may actually be 'in-camera' footage of the fabled Magic Leap glasses.

And if that is not enough, our "Guest Crasher" will be the tech company from Vancouver, Canada who took the print speed title away from Carbon3D -- NewPro3D.

The Print Whisperer:
Chris - Bead blast it! Finishing SLA/FFF parts can require a lot of manual labor and love with manual sanding. If you are doing a lot of printing it might be worth it to you to acquire a blast cabinet like this. Then blast with a PMB bead solution like Polyplus®, which has a Mohs hardness of 3.5 and a 20/30 U.S. standard sieve size (0.84/0.58 mm). One quick hit and your part is smooth.
