AR technology in glasses from SLS 3D printer

New technologies are the field where evolution and changes are the most noticeable. And such are the 3D systems of augmented reality – the devices are constantly upgraded to guarantee the highest image quality. The combination of virtual 3D reality and non-virtual reality is the result of a collaboration between Sinterit and Professor Rigo Herold – a German researcher working on developing AR technology as well as on the design of data glasses.

3D printing and designing – part 2 of 2

Last week we identified hypothetical company ‘3DWorx’ as Dutch and their client to be Dutch as well. In order to answer the next question: “Can 3DWorx use this design for others”, we need to have a look at what it is that the client is going to use 3DWorx’s design for.
