Um Torno Impresso em 3D!

Até mudei o título deste Post, quando vi ISTO...
Um Mini Torno Mecânico Impresso em 3D!
Impecável!

3D-printed mini lathe

It has been said that once you have a lathe you can make just about any other tool. This open-source printable mini lathe could be the perfect place to get started. With the quality of hobby printers increasing so rapidly, it is great to see complex mechanical models like this making their way out into the ecosystem.

(We’ve seen a printed mini-lathe before, but that project seems to be obsolete now.)

Amphibious Iguana 29 gets smaller sibling, the Iguana 24

By Gizmag Team
As forecast when we broke the news of the caterpillar-driven Iguana 29 amphibious vehicle last year, Iguana has released details of a smaller Iguana 24.
 
The 24 is near identical to the 29 and uses the same retractable caterpillar tracks for surefooted drive across extreme terrain at up to 8 km/h (5 mph). In the water the Iguana 24 boasts a performance edge over its larger sibling and has 38 knot speed (70 km/h), 3 knots faster than the 29.
The Iguana 24 being slightly smaller, has slightly less carrying capacity with room for just eight passengers compared with the Iguana 29's ten passengers. Larger versions of the currently ten-seater amphibian are planned.

Blue Origin conducts wind tunnel tests on its next-gen spacecraft design 
By Ben Coxworth

When it comes to spacecraft that may take the place of the now-defunct space shuttle, it would probably be fair to say that most people probably think of the SpaceX Dragon. It’s sometimes easy to forget, however, that SpaceX is a private company, competing against others for NASA’s business. One of those competitors is Washington state-based Blue Origin, established by Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos (SpaceX was co-founded by Elon Musk, of PayPal fame). Although the company has been rather secretive about the space vehicle that it’s developing, it recently announced that the design has done well in a series of wind tunnel tests.
