Travel Tips

Wohlers Talk

I keep a file folder of articles that I clip from magazines and print from websites. This is the time of year when many are traveling. So, I want to pass along a few air travel tips that may help improve your travel experience.. Pack light. Whether Im going on a two-day or two-week trip, I take two bags: a carry-on for my computer, papers, etc., and a roll-aboard. I almost always carry both onto the plane.

The Terminology Challenge

Wohlers Talk

Long term, I believe 3D printing will prevail as the generic term of choice. Rapid prototyping has served well as an umbrella term for a long time. In recent years, the application of additive technology has expanded beyond prototyping. Many companies are using it for visualizationnot as prototypesand for custom products and series production. It becomes awkward, even misleading, to say that youre using rapid prototyping (RP) for the direct manufacture of products.
