Researchers at Germany’s Hasso Plattner Institute have developed an amazing new Laser cutting 3D objects, the LaserOrigami:

LaserOrigami is a rapid prototyping system that produces 3D objects using a laser cutter. LaserOrigami is substantially faster than traditional 3D fabrication techniques such as 3D printing and unlike traditional laser cutting the resulting 3D objects require no manual assembly.

    Cute, but the joints aren’t going to be as strong as the interlocking ones…

  • Drone: So these go for around $330 USD and NO published calibration procedure online or otherwise? Given what's inside - I don't think I'll be considering...

  • KH: Let's try a back-of-envelope calc balancing energies. From MCP1700 datasheet, there are graphs for a 200mA load step. Estimate the energy shortfall as 12uJ. Say...
