About 5 years ago I read a mainstream media article on consumer 3D printing. A journalist had use of a 3D printer for a few weeks and made all kinds of things, found it interesting, but finally commented that there was no “killer app” for a 3D printer in the home. The closest they came … More Hunting The Killer App For Consumer 3D Printing
A lot has been said about additive manufacturing, and through my work with Carbodeon, who have now launched their uDiamond® Nanodiamond Modified 3D printing material, I have a commercial involvement in additive manufacturing for the first time. Generally people make a lot of the difference between an additive and a subtractive process, suggesting that it is … More Never Under-Estimate the Power of The Force. Additive Versus Subtractive Manufacturing.
We will be going away on vacation some time soon, so it might take an extra couple of hours to get replies by email. In the meantime, the new 3D printing project with Carbodeon is keeping me busy. This has been quite handy, since between modifications to the sailing boat, canoe and trusty VW Caravelle, … More Summer Vacation now in 3D
This has not been easy to build………….
The Carbodeon CTO works hard at this – he’s proud of the scientific development and he was formerly a qualified patent attorney, so it ticks multiple boxes for him. Question is, what can it do for YOU, as a customer? And how does it help me in business development? Patents are an ancient concept that … More Another USA Nanodiamond Powder / Nanodiamond Dispersion Patent for Carbodeon: Why do we do this?
I’ve set up an online store for Carbodeon . They sell nanodiamond mateirals, it is a pretty technical affair and tends to be quite application specific and for this reason there is usually a direct dialogue with customers anyway, but I think the online store will streamline the actual transactions. http://www.carbodeon.store
I’ve met some conspiracy theorists who told me “we just found out that water is made out of hydrogen and oxygen, but the oil companies won’t let people find out”. Unfortunately it isn’t quite as simple as that but people continue to make progress using materials such as carbon nitride, which is one of our … More A New Graphitic Carbon Nitride Publication – Hydrogen Production by Photocatalysis
Cambridge, Nov 2-3. This is the 4th in this excellent series of conference/ workshops run by CIR group. I’m back with a short presentation about nanodiamond materials in thermally conductive/ electrically nonconductive polymers. Link to the conference agenda.
Issue 97 of Race Engine Technology magazine has a great article about coatings for motorsport. I’m not the author, but there is a good section on nanoparticle reinforced coatings which I contributed to. Unfortunately you have to buy the magazine to get the full article.
