003D printer, Fun, Modeling, new technology, Post, Printer DealerTags: , , ,

A company in my hometown, Barcelona is selling a new product: yourself.
The idea is that you go to the photo studio, get scanned with a 3D scanner and after paying 99€, a color 3D model of yourself is printed.

My question is: Why would you like to have a 3D printed YOU?

Different situations come to my mind … People in love leaving far away?, kids missing their parents or parents missing their kids maybe because they study or work abroad?, or grandparents missing all of them… Who knows?

Its a new business model and a new opportunity that 3D printers are bringing to us.
Check out this video and see how it works:

00Business efficiency, cost saving, efficiency, printer costs, TonerTags: , , , , , ,

Study made by a 14 years old student of Dorseyville Middle School, Pittsburgh, PA (USA)

coverage study by font

Suvir Mirchandani and his teacher Peter Pinko studied the printing cost for ink at their school and the impact it has in the ecosystem.

They made a long and precise study of the coverage of most used fonts as well as some  alternative fonts with less coverage. Studying proportionally the letters that they used more, they came up with a stunning result of 24% saving in ink usage. That was $21.000 per year of savings for their school. The font they came up with it’s a very readable and nice one: Garamond. It seems a good idea to me, at least to explore different fonts in order to save that extra money. There is nothing to lose.

Have a look at the whole study here

Update:

The study goes further: Suvir Mirchandani want to help US government save $400 millions in ink. Same principal applies : swap font type. read more
