Back home from AMUG. Speaking at Inside 3D Printing NYC on Tuesday morning - again, holler if you'll be there :)


  • Alcoa (or more precisely, Alcoa's soon to be formed value-add spinoff, Arconic) announced that they'll be supplying 3D printed airframe components to Airbus.
  • Additive Industries' MetalFAB1 will have 3DSIM's print simulation built into its (somewhat grandiosely named) Additive World Platform software.
  • Nest acqui-hired a smart home company called Revolv in 2014; now they're shutting down the servers that make Revolv's hardware functional.




Stuff that doesn't fit into my dumb/arbitrary categories.

Love, Spencer.

p.s. - We should be better friends. Send me a note - coffee's on me :)
