I’ll have to admit that I am a Letterman guy, but this is really cool. Jay Leno is using our tools to recreate parts for his famous antique car collection. In this video he uses the Next Engine Scanner, a SolidWorks Partner, to scan a broken part from a steam engine he is rebuilding. He then uses the Dimension Printer to print a plastic prototype of the part, testing its function in the design. Jay also appreciates that both of these technologies are developed and owned by American companies. The 3D printing technology has really taken off lately. Just last month, Dimension announced the uPrint, a 3D printer you can order and install yourself! Learn more about it here.
