This week's Question: San Francisco-based startup Apis Cor recently used its giant 3D printer to build a small home — in under 24 hours, according to the company. The mobile technology printed out the house's walls, partitions, and building envelope; then, a group of contractors installed insulation, windows, appliances, and a roof. Apis Cor says the homes can be built for a cost of approximately$10,000. What do you think? Is 3D printing the future of construction?

# Survival of the Fittest - the Process Control Imperative

In tough times, manufacturers focus on reducing their operating costs, but may not be able to afford to spend their way out by buying more productive machinery. With that pathway closed, what are the opportunities for radically reducing costs without replacing existing machines? This paper explores Productive Process Pyramid™ and the four areas where substantial savings can be found if firms are prepared to change the way they control their machining processes.

# Thermoplastics: The Strongest Choice for 3D Printing

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) gives you the option of making functional plastic parts with the most commonly used industrial-grade thermoplastics – the same types of raw materials found in injection molding facilities. That’s important because the best way to predict a product’s end performance is to prototype it with a material as similar as possible to the finished part.
