How is the future of 3D printing shaped by major corporations?

Unless you have been living on the dark side of the moon for the last 5 years, you probably know about the emergence of affordable 3D Printing. An early device to weigh in was actually developed just down the road from us at Bath University. The RepRap project was born out of a philosophy paper – the idea surrounding a machine that helps to build its progeny. RepRap was designed out of 3d printed parts, hence the device could produce “offspring”.

Significantly RepRap was a not for profit and open source movement, which has to be a significant factor in the explosion of the 3D printing enthusiast community, just run the term “3D printing” through Google Trends and you can see the explosion around 2011. We then saw many devices spring up as commercial start ups, apparently very much based on the RepRap, in particular the majority are based on “Fused Deposition Modelling”  ( Imagine an inkjet printer that extrudes a tiny stream of hot plastic over a platform that drops away, as the part builds up the layers.)

A new approach, low risk Product Development?

By | consumer research, Crowd funding, lean startup, Product development | No Comments

There is a visible shift in how new product start ups acquire intelligence on their target markets as well as the option to gleam customer input before setting out on their development cycle. We are starting to see an upturn in enquiries from start ups using the “Pretail” model. Enabling low risk lean start ups, gauge market feedback as early in the product development as possible. Here is a word from Trendwatching about Pretail. http://www.trendwatching.com/trends/pretail/

Design Cycles

By | Product development, Uncategorized | No Comments

Its quite interesting to see how cyclic some ideas can be ( pun intended) before the humble penny farthing the origins of the bicycle in the late 1700′s was wooden framed, a two wheeled device the user pushed along with out pedals.
We like what sandwichbike has done with a modern twist taking Bike Design full circle for 2013 . We would like to see an option for those non fixy bikers too. http://www.sandwichbikes.com/
