Fri February 27, 2015

Stratasys Ltd., a global leader of 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing solutions, today announced that the team at Econolyst, a top Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing consultancy and research firm, will join Stratasys Services Group.

  • Econolyst’s highly skilled team, led by Dr. Phil Reeves, a 20-year industry veteran in the Additive Manufacturing space, will form the foundation of the new Stratasys Strategic Consulting Division.

Econolyst Infographic: “Innovating New Ideas & Leading Thinking”

This video (duration is 47:13) presents The Econolyst’s Dr Phil Reeves on embedding 3D Printing into the Supply Chain at TCT Show 2014.

  • His talk was titled “Embedding Additive Manufacturing into the Supply Chain and 3D Printing into the Retail and Service Offer – Methodologies, Examples and Ideas.”
  • Dr Phil Reeves gave us some eye-opening questions such as “what happens when you go and have a selfie scan and then discover yourself that you have been … made by someone you didn’t agree to make it?” (question located between 5:15 and 5:22 marks).
  • He also shared with us insights and future trends about 3D printing.

The Strategic Consulting Division will provide independent, expert consulting around Additive Manufacturing strategy development, ideation and innovation and implementation planning across technologies and solutions.

  • Importantly, it will remain technology agnostic.

So how does an independent and agnostic 3D Printing consultancy firm remain independent and agnostic as part of a large corporation?

The answer is simple: though we will now be part of another company, we will continue to put customers’ needs first, regardless of whether our strategies take us in the direction of 3D Printing hardware or alternative technologies. Whether we find immediate technology solutions, or can scope out a developmental roadmap for the future, it all benefits our customers.

USA’s Proposal of New Rules for Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (Drones): The FAA Wants Your Comments on or Before April 24, 2015

Wed February 25, 2015
Image extracted from video below.

Image extracted from video below.

This is an update to these previous blogs:

Recently, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the Department of Transportation (DOT) proposed a framework of regulations (pdf) that would allow routine use of certain small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) – a.k.a. drones – in today’s aviation system, while maintaining flexibility to accommodate future technological innovations.

  • The FAA proposal offers safety rules for small UAS (under 55 pounds) conducting non-recreational operations.

Summary:
The FAA is proposing to amend its regulations to adopt specific rules to allow the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems in the National Airspace System. These changes would address the operation of unmanned aircraft systems, certification of their operators, registration, and display of registration markings. The proposed rule would also find that airworthiness certification is not required for small unmanned aircraft system operations that would be subject to this proposed rule. Lastly, the proposed rule would prohibit model aircraft from endangering the safety of the National Airspace System.

The proposed provisions in the FAA’s Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) include the following.
Operational Limitations

  • Unmanned aircraft must weigh less than 55 lbs. (25 kg).
  • Visual line-of-sight (VLOS) only; the unmanned aircraft must remain within VLOS of the operator or visual observer.
  • At all times the small unmanned aircraft must remain close enough to the operator for the operator to be capable of seeing the aircraft with vision unaided by any device other than corrective lenses.
  • Small unmanned aircraft may not operate over any persons not directly involved in the operation.
  • Daylight-only operations (official sunrise to official sunset, local time).
  • Must yield right-of-way to other aircraft, manned or unmanned.
  • First-person view camera cannot satisfy “see-and-avoid” requirement but can be used as long as requirement is satisfied in other ways.
  • Maximum airspeed of 100 mph (87 knots).
  • Maximum altitude of 500 feet above ground level.
  • Minimum weather visibility of 3 miles from control station.
  • No person may act as an operator or VO for more than one unmanned aircraft operation at one time.

Operator Certification and Responsibilities

  • Pilots of a small UAS would be considered “operators”.
  • Operators would be required to:
    • o Pass an initial aeronautical knowledge test at an FAA-approved knowledge testing center.
    • o Be vetted by the Transportation Security Administration.
    • o Obtain an unmanned aircraft operator certificate with a small UAS rating (like existing pilot airman certificates, never expires).
    • o Pass a recurrent aeronautical knowledge test every 24 months.
    • o Be at least 17 years old.
    • o Make available to the FAA, upon request, the small UAS for inspection or testing, and any associated documents/records required to be kept under the proposed rule.
    • o Report an accident to the FAA within 10 days of any operation that results in injury or property damage.

Aircraft Requirements

  • FAA airworthiness certification not required. However, operator must maintain a small UAS in condition for safe operation and prior to flight must inspect the UAS to ensure that it is in a condition for safe operation. Aircraft Registration required (same requirements that apply to all other aircraft).
  • Aircraft markings required (same requirements that apply to all other aircraft). If aircraft is too small to display markings in standard size, then the aircraft simply needs to display markings in the largest practicable manner.

Please click here to read the complete Summary of Major Provisions of Proposed Rulemaking (pdf).

This video presents FAA proposes rules to regulate drone use.

  • The FAA is proposing a number of rules to deal with the growing interest from businesses looking to use drones.

Professional photographers received good news over the weekend as the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) released new guidelines that would seem to pave the way for widespread legal use of small drones in the U.S. While the details are far from complete, the proposal would seem to open the door for professional photographers to use unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) as an additional offering for their clients. However, that door is not open just yet….

And there could be even more positive news on the horizon for PPA members as the FAA has agreed to look at more relaxed regulations for micro-drones, a class of unmanned aircraft weighing less than 4.4 lbs. That is significant to photographers since many are already using these smaller drones outside of their business….

By Professional Photographers of America (PPA) |

The public will be able to comment on the proposed regulation for 60 days from the date of publication in the Federal Register, which can be found at:

Newark, NJ (February 23, 2015) Panasonic today announced the new LUMIX G 42.5mm/F1.7 ASPH./POWER O.I.S. (Optical Image Stabilization) (equivalent: 85 mm) and the LUMIX G Macro 30mm/ F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S.

Panasonic LUMIX G 42.5mm/F1.7 ASPH./POWER O.I.S.

Panasonic LUMIX G 42.5mm/F1.7 ASPH./POWER O.I.S.

The LUMIX G 42.5mm/F1.7 not only has a maximum aperture of F1.7, but incorporates optical image stabilization along with full time Auto Focus (AF).  The new lens system is comprised of 10 elements in 8 groups can deliver portraits with a rich stereoscopic effect as well as close-ups with beautiful defocus. It features a versatile focusing distance of 12.2 inches allowing users to enjoy true-to-life close-up shots such as food photography. A reliable metal mount assures durability for active use, and uses multi-coated lens elements that minimize ghosts and flare to further enhance its shooting performance.  The lens’ POWER O.I.S. system effectively compensates unwanted blur caused by vibration – not only small, fast movements but also large, slow ones – helping you get the results you want, even in low light situations. The POWER O.I.S system, alongside the 240fps Drive AF, delivers stable framing and precise focusing every time.

Panasonic LUMIX G Macro 30mm/ F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S.

The LUMIX G MACRO 30mm/ F2.8 ASPH. / MEGA O.I.S. lens provides sharp, high contrast image rendering with a wide angle and a high speed F2.8 aperture. Utilizing 1x life-size magnification, deep depth of field, and a focusing distance starting at just 4.13 inches, the lens offers excellent performance when shooting true-to-life macro shots.
