Mcor has further increased the colour capabilities of its IRIS 3D printer, offering sharper colours, higher quality colour on thin walls, meeting International Color Consortium (ICC) approval and 10 per cent reduced ink consumption.
The enhancements announced today build on the superior ‘True Colour’ capabilities that part of Mcor’s aggressive colour strategy, with the updates offering precise 3D models in industry-standard colours as presented in a photographer’s, engineer’s or designer’s photograph, CAD model, scan or illustration.
Without the ICC profile, 3D printers translate incoming colours to machine-specific ones, introducing unintended changes in the 3D printed colour along the way, with the IRIS outputting over 1 million colors and 5760 x 1440 x 508dpi.
The new version of Autodesk ReCap Pro is heading your way, with the task of making 3D scanning easier and more accurate for all industries.
More than just a picture, the ReCap product line looks to give customers the ability to capture and integrate reality data directly into their design process - a car on the drive, a building project, your own beautiful-if-slightly-dented head.
ReCap Pro 1.4 looks to make it easier to check the quality of laser scans that you are feeding into the ReCap engine and turn the scans into 3D data models.
Five young female engineers have been shortlisted for a prestigious engineering industry award - The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards - which aims to banish outdated engineering stereotypes.
Working on projects as diverse as the next generation of 3D printers, laser warning systems for military aircraft and the cooling system for a futuristic new car, the engineers looking to help change the perception that engineering is about hard hats and greasy pipes, or only a career for men.
The IET Young Woman Engineer of the Year Awards aim is to find female role models to help address the UK science and engineering skills crisis, where women currently represent only six per cent of the engineering workforce in the UK.
Special effects is a wonderfully diverse industry, where else could you be crating warrior armour and weapons one day, then sculptures of footballers the next?
Charged with the task of creating a functional yet zany car to be driven by Interpol Agent Jean Pierre Napoleon, played by Actor Ty Burrell, the waist-high car is seen zipping through various scenes as the agent attempts to track down the notorious Constantine, who bears an uncanny resemblance to Kermit the Frog.
