About scraping, the most comprehensive technical article

The body of the individual is good or bad. It is known through scraping. If you want to know about your health through scraping, you must first understand the positive reactions and positive reactions and their meanings. Today, we took advantage of the Weachal teacher’s foot treatment forum to share details with everyone. The content of this article has become more comprehensive. Welcome the collection.

So what is a positive reaction?

There is a difference between licking and licking when scraping. There are different feelings such as smoothness, unevenness, gravel, nodules, muscle tension and stiffness, or loose and soft under the scraping board. These sensations are collectively referred to as “positive reactions”. The different reactions that occur during scraping indicate different health conditions for the wipes.

Not out

There was no ecchymosis when scraping, no pain or scratching under the board, suggesting that the meridian blood was unobstructed and healthy.

2. Freckle occurs

When the squeaking occurs, the squeaking stops and the squeaking stops immediately. It suggests that the local blood flow is slow and the meridians have qi stagnation and blood stasis. The shade, color, shape and density of the elephant are related to the length of the local blood stagnation, the severity of stasis, and the extent of stasis. The longer the blood stagnation time, the more metabolites in the blood, the darker the color, and the denser the stink bug, the larger the range.

3. Positive reaction

The positive reaction is to feel scratchy under the scraping plate when scraping, and there are obstacles such as gravel and nodules. The same is the meridian blood and blood, tissue and organ cells hypoxia, why some parts will be paralyzed, and some parts have a positive reaction such as irregularities, gravel, nodules? This is mainly determined by the state of the local blood circulation.

Due to obstruction of blood flow, blood deficiency and blood deficiency caused by lack of oxygen in the cells, the local tissue will appear hyperplasia or adhesion reaction, scraping wipe will not produce sputum, but there are irregular positive reactions. The location, nature, and extent of obstacles in the parts of the meridian qi and blood disorders are different, and the state and nature of the positive reactions are different.

The longer the hypoxia of the meridians, the more obvious the positive reaction. Astringent skin, slight pain, scraping under the squatting board, and gravel-like sensation were symptoms of mild stagnation in the meridian blood. Nodules appear, indicating that the meridians and blood stagnation time is longer. The larger and harder the nodules, the higher the degree of tissue adhesion or fibrosis and calcification and the longer the lesions.

4. Pain

Pain is also a manifestation of a positive reaction. When qi stagnation or blood emptiness and lack of qi and blood, cell hypoxia affect the neurological disorder, the scraping will also appear pain response, that is, Chinese medicine says “no general pain.” The more painful reminders are now when there are sub-health symptoms.

What are the microcirculatory and microcirculatory disorders?

Microcirculation refers to the humoral circulation of blood and lymph fluid in the human capillaries and microlymphatic vessels directly involved in the organization, the exchange of energy in the cellular material, and the transmission of information. It covers the basic functions of life activities.

Defective and positive reactions are microcirculation disorders. The same is the microcirculation disorder, but there are differences between hemorrhagic and ischemic disorders. Blood stasis, slow flow, bloody microcirculation disorders. Hemorrhagic microcirculatory disturbances, rapid spasm after scraping wipes, rapid improvement of microcirculation. If the arterial blood flow is reduced, the flow of tissue perfusion is insufficient, or because of changes in the number and nature of blood cells, the lack of nutrients in the blood leads to ischemic and hypoxic ischemic microcirculation.

Why does a positive reaction occur?

Insufficient blood flow in the ischemic microcirculation disorder results in no fistulae after wiping. When tissue cells are prolongedly subjected to ischemia or hypoxia, these soft tissues will undergo pathological changes such as hyperplasia, adhesion, fibrosis, calcification or inflammation.

Scraping will feel scratchy under the scraper plate, subcutaneous or muscle tissue similar to gravel, rice, peanuts, beans size, and even larger nodular soft tissue, or cord-like obstacle resistance, collectively referred to as positive .

These positive reactions are not tumors, but a kind of pathological reaction after cell ischemia, hypoxia or tissue damage and inflammation. The size, morphology, extent of lesions, time, and extent of lesions are closely related.

How to determine the sub-health or disease site

Freckle and positive reactions are the manifestations of microcirculatory disturbances. The site where the meridian blood and blood run is not smooth and sub-health or disease occurs. When scratching, we carefully observed whether there was a positive reaction under the scraping plate and observed the site where the freckle occurred. According to the Chinese meridian theory and biological holographic theory, we have mastered the law of the distribution of meridians on the skin surface and the holographic distribution of organs on the body surface. The meridians or organ organs of the blood and blood disorders can be judged to determine sub-health or disease sites.

First beat the body with a tapping method, and then scrape, so that you can also find the body’s deep diseases. In general, if a meridian or positive reaction occurs in a meridian, it indicates that the meridians connected to the meridians have sub-health or disease changes. This method can accurately determine the sub-health or disease site when the body does not have any symptoms.

For example, the back sac of the bladder and the upper extremity heart meridians of stings or positive reactions suggest that the heart or heart qi and blood running is not smooth; if the back of the bladder by the heart and the heart and the upper limbs without any stink or positive reaction, it is not necessarily the heart is healthy, in order to prevent The omission of a disease and the elimination of scrofula can basically prove that the heart is healthy. The following conditions are similar.

The stasis or positive reaction of the back bladder through the stomach Yu and the lower extremity stomach meridian suggests that the operation of the stomach or stomach qi and blood is not smooth; the stuttering or positive reaction of the corresponding region of the viscera of the organs and the projection area of ​​the body surface prompts the visceral organs to run with blood Poor, sub-health or disease changes; rubbing the second metacarpal axillary points of the hand, can identify, identify organs that cause pain; sensitive in pain at the heart, suggesting that the disease is in the heart; pain sensitive in the stomach, suggesting The disease is in the stomach.

Sometimes the shape of the elephant can also reflect the location and shape of the lesion, such as the shape of the breast in the corresponding area of ​​the breast on the back of the breast hyperplasia, that is, the position and shape of the breast hyperplasia in the corresponding part of the chest. The uniform palsy suggests a diffuse hyperplasia of the breast. , Rope or round ecchymosis suggest that the growth organisms are cords or nodules.

Bone and joint diseases, rapid spasm during scraping and swabbing, large areas of scarring suggest that the lesions are mostly muscle injuries; bone and joint diseases have pain or positive reactions, but few spasms suggest deep lesions in tendons, ligaments or bones Department. In order to let netizens learn more about scraping knowledge, let’s talk about “Scrapping Tips that Everyone Can Grasp”. The tips are as follows:

First, scraping treatment tips before the operation:

1. The choice of scraping tools

The choice of scraping tools is one of the important conditions. We mainly use scraping plates made of ox horns in clinical practice. The shapes are mostly rectangular, with round protrusions on the edges, and rounded and smooth edges. Horn itself has a certain degree of detoxification and other medicinal effects. The use of horn scraping plate operation can enhance the therapeutic effect and efficacy.

2. Medium

The medium is usually more oil or wine. The wine itself has the effect of promoting blood circulation, cooling down the body, removing phlegm, and passing through the network. If the use of certain symptomatic drugs such as safflower oil, valsartan, etc. as the medium for scraping treatment, it will be more effective.

Second, scraping operation skills:

1. The use of scraping board skills

The scraping board should be at an angle of 60° or 90° to the skin of the human body. The scraping plate should first be smeared with media during scraping and then centered on the surgical site and extend its range as far as possible.

2. Skills for speed and strength when scraping

The key to squeezing is the mastery and control of strength and speed. “Being heavy but not board, light and not floating” is the requirement of strength. Heavy, may cause local skin ulceration; light, it will not achieve results. During the wiping operation, the patient’s subjective feelings are constantly inquired and the local skin condition is observed. “Quick but not slippery, slow and not stagnant” is the requirement of speed. Speed ​​is too fast to penetrate; slow speed is not effective.

Scraping skills have a direct and very important role in the treatment and efficacy. Did you learn the above tips? I hope to help everyone. The following article is also worth watching.

Inappropriate handling due to improper operation

Scrapping as a non-pharmacological specialty has been circulating in our country for thousands of years. It is easy to use and has a wide range of applications. Some patients have improperly scraped, aggravated condition or even caused other physical discomfort.

Normally a fever-dominated cold or severe heat stroke is not free to scrape. Scraping is not always more effective. Scrapping requires the public to have a certain amount of medical knowledge and skills. Not everyone can operate on their own.

Scraping is not more effective

Scrapping by adjusting the yin and yang balance, improve the mechanism of disease resistance, mainly play a role in relieving the symptoms of defecation, resuscitation, brain-breathing, meridians, qi and blood circulation, and phlegm and dampness.

It is based on the theory of traditional Chinese medicine skin, with utensils (horns, jade, cupping), etc. in the skin-related parts wiped to achieve the purpose of dredging the meridians, promoting blood circulation.

However, it is worth noting that many people think that scraping must be painful and unbearable. It is the highest realm. Source Yike said that in fact this is a wrong view. Scraping is not more painful and effective, nor is it black and purple. In fact, the wiping part can be stopped after showing a reddish or purple color. If the scraping site, force, etc., are not properly grasped, the one-sided pursuit of the color of the sputum is not only ineffective, but also can cause damage to the skin and flesh.

Some patients can’t get rid of paralysis. In addition to method errors, they may be caused by recent scraping or being too severe. The body is too weak to scratch it. It is not easy to cause excessive force and damage.

The relative indications of scraping are mainly colds, fevers, heat stroke, headaches, gastrointestinal problems, stiff neck, frozen shoulders, lumbar muscle strain, muscle cramps, rheumatoid arthritis and other conditions.

Inappropriate scraping operation aggravates the condition

Since scraping is a stimulant therapy, improper operation can aggravate the condition or cause other physical discomfort. Source Yike emphasized that scraping is a change from therapies such as massage, acupuncture, cupping, and bloodletting. These four therapies should follow the four principles of surgery. First, a clear diagnosis, and second, dialectical treatment. The fourth is to make up for deficiency.

Taking a cold, taking medicine and scraping therapy, the effect is very obvious. Mainly in the Tianzhu, bilateral Fengchi, Jianjing, Fengmen, bilateral medial edge of the shoulder sacrum, Yintang, chest Fengfu swab, after a scrap of a hot cup of herbal tea, a sweat, It’s true that the whole person will feel comfortable.

However, if the cold is dominated by fever, it is not appropriate to perform a single scraping. It is necessary to cooperate with medical treatment. Traditional Chinese medicine believes that it is particularly difficult to have a headache and scratch their feet. Because headaches must be scraped to eliminate the organic disease of the head, so be sure to go to the hospital for a clear diagnosis.

In addition, summer heat inevitably occurs heat stroke, commonly known as cyanosis, there are mild and severe two, mild Scraping efficacy is better, but the patient should immediately move to a cool ventilated place, unfasten the clothes button, but also take cooling measures. Critical illness, especially critical illness, should be treated according to the condition of the illness. At this time, it is not appropriate to scrape. Old and frail elderly people must be careful in scraping young children.

Scratching should pay attention to grasp the degree of stimulation

Scraping therapy is the same as acupuncture, massage, etc. It is all about stimulating the acupuncture points of the human body, but the tools used are different.

Therefore, the patient may also experience discomfort during the scraping process. At this point, you should quickly stop the scraping, so that the patient supine and drink warm water or warm water, rest for a while, will soon turn for the better, if it does not work, you can quickly use the scraping plate to wipe the patient Baihui, people in the hole, Neiguan, Zusanli, Yongquan points first aid. .

It turned out that, like acupuncture, it may be like a fainting needle. Symptoms of dizziness are dizziness, paleness, palpitation, cold sweats, cold extremities, nausea, or dizziness.

In order to prevent accidents caused by scraping, doctors should pay special attention to mastering the degree of stimulation, that is, the strength and strength that the patient can withstand. In addition, doctors should take preventive measures and grasp the contraindications for scraping. Patients with over-fat, over-fatigue, bodily emasculation, and loss of skin elasticity should be treated with local swelling, sores, ulceration, or tumor patients suffering from heart disease and edema. Patients with hemophilia, hemorrhage, hemorrhagic purpura, and other bleeding disorders are not eligible for scraping. Patients with low blood pressure, hypoglycemia, excessive weakness, and nervousness are particularly afraid of pain.

In addition, because the scratches have a certain amount of damage to the skin, it is necessary to wait for a period of time after one stroke, usually about five to seven days, and then scrape the skin again for the second time.

3D Printed Hubs are the Centerpieces of Visually Stunning Geodesic Dome Shade Structures

byDebra ThimmeschMay 27, 20153D Design3D Printing

Theres no better, more direct metaphor for the work that Michael Gates and Toby Vann ofArchimedes Designdo than the hub. Its both the literal center or core of what they do and the driving force behind their venture. Gates and Vann are the founders of a truly community-centric, grassroots effort to provide one of lifes fundamental necessities: shelter. However, like most everything this creative duo does, they do it with an artfulness that blends form and function until the two are essentially indistinguishable from one another.

The Scout model, full kit includes rain fly

To say the dome structures they design and build arose from a grassroots ethos isnt quite accurate. Quite literally, its dust, the fineand some would say, insidiousdust of the Nevada desert. Longtime attendees ofBurning Man, the annual mass gathering that has become legendary by now and whose fundamental principle of community infuses their work, Gates and Vann saw a need and they responded to it with the kind of creativity and energy that exemplifies the structures they stand behindor beneath, as it were.

Drawing from a variety of resources, including 3D printing and 3D design, Gates and Vann began conceiving of shade structures that would withstand the intense conditions of the desert yet adhere to the temporal nature of the yearly festival. As any Burner knows, when you leave the festival, the environs of the infamous Black Rock City, you leave no trace.

When considering how to design something strong enough to provide shade from the sometimes relentless sun or the chill winds that cross the desert as soon as the sun has set, Gates and Vann began small. With slender cocktail straws, they constructed their first version of the structure that Gates explained is a tesselated geodesic dome.

Its basically icosohedral, he elaborated. Its the classic dome structure with triangular facets approximating a hemisphere.

Think jungle gyms, Epcot Center, Buckminster Fuller.

Although they began with more rudimentary construction methods, looking to tradition for examples like bent-pole supported structures, they realized that what they and their customers really wanted was something safe as well as sturdy. Bent poles can, after all, break. Furthermore, the shape of the dome itself spoke to the overall function of a shelter destined for the bustling but expressly temporary city that arises at the end of each summer. The city itself is laid out in concentric circles with lanes between camps and larger avenues leading to the Playa, the hub of life in Black Rock City.

It was that circular, inclusive civic structure that Gates and Vann wished to emulate with their domes. Knitting together the alternating hexagons and pentagons of the domes are star-like harness systems that can be adjusted to maintain the necessary tension to hold the poles, spokes in a sort of angular wheel, to the crucial hubs at each connecting point.

To assert that the hubs were the critical component of the Archimedes Design project is not an understatement. Gates recalled the trial-and-error process of the hub design:

We were making our own hubs with the prototyping process and we realized through field testing that they were not strong enough. They were the weak link in the structure itself.

Neither Gates nor Vann was a novice with respect to various methods of construction. Theyd essentially built their own three-story Brooklyn home from the skeleton of the previous structure. They also knew that to produce a hub of the quality they had in mind they didnt have to reinvent the wheelor, more accurately, the hub. Thats when they turned to 3D printing to create a prototype for the cast hubs that they felt would meet the high structural standards of their domes.

Cast steel hubs created using the 3D-printed prototype

While Gates had CAD experience and produced a preliminary design for the hub usingSketchUp, they turned to an experienced designer who, based upon their specifications, usedRhino 3Dto create a model to be 3D printed and, ultimately, cast. While they were aware that, as an ambitious but fledgling start-up they couldnt afford to 3D print the hubs in metal and in great quantity, Gates and Vann knew that once they had a working, full-scale model of the new-and-improved hub, theyd have something concrete to show a foundry as well as potential investors. Thats been one of the essential selling points of 3D printingits capacity to facilitate rapid, cost-effective prototyping for small businesses with big ideas. Gates and Vann took the 3D model, uploaded it toShapeways,and a few days later the most ingenious iteration yet of their award-winning domes was in full-scale production.

The Day-Glo version, which Gates and Vann unveiled at taBURnac in Montreal this past winter

Since that time, Gates and Vann have sold multiple domes in three different sizes, customizing them to individual users via the colorful, spandex shade panels that stretch across the open expanses between hubs and supports, including a black light-enhanced version of beautiful, riotous color and a distinctive red-and-blue variation in honor of their recent appearance atMaker Faire 2015 in San Mateo, California. At last years Burning Man, Gates and Vann showcased several of their domes, which they delivered personally to fellow Burners and customers. In the spirit of community that so distinguishes the yearly festival, special delivery included a tutorial in constructing and deconstructing the domes.

While no traces of the eye-catching, smart, and efficient dome structures remained after the last bit of MOOP (matter out of place in Burning Man vernacular) was removed late last summer, word of Archimedes Design and the versatile, artful domes continued to spread. As Gates and Vann persist in perfecting the domes and branching out to create domes suitable for different environments and purposes, they welcomein keeping with the festivals philosophy of collective creativitynew ideas, novel iterations, forward-thinking investors, and, above all else, real-life stories of their domes as they inspire new communities and enterprises as creative as their own.

The UPS Store will 3-D print stuff for you

announced plans Monday to bring in-store 3-D-printing services tonearly 100 stores across the country, billing itself as the first national retailer to do so.

With the UPS system, customers can submit their own designs for objects like product prototypes, engineering parts and architectural models that are then printed on a professional-quality 3-D printer made by Stratasys.

Related: Amazon launches 3-D-printing store

Prices vary depending on the complexity of the object; an iPhone case would be about $60, while a replica femur bone would be around $325. UPS can also connect customers with outside professionals who charge an hourly rate to help produce a design file for the printer.

It generally takes about four or five hours to print a simple object, with more complex items taking a day or more.

The program started as a pilot at six locations last year, and UPS says those stores saw demand for 3-D print continuing to increase across a broad spectrum of customers.

This article challenges the view that womens writing in the fifteenth century was simply naive, harmless work that was not part of the mainstream. In fact, convent womens narratives and historical house chronicles are in many instances much more politically engaged than has generally been understood. Examined in the context of the fifteenth-century struggle for religious reform in which many were involved, womens writings and book illustrations reveal a kind of polemical reform mentality. This article shows some ways in which these writers portrayal of themselves diverges from traditional mainstream narratives about women that depict them as victims or pawns in the religious struggles of the day. The nuns own stories, however, reveal a remarkable degree of political savvy and engagement in which religious women through writing their convent histories and reform accounts found a voice and a way to exercise agency.

Hello Kitty 3D Printing Store Opened in Shanghai

The fictional character produced by the Japanese company Sanrio has been brought into the world of 3D printing with the opening of its own 3D printing concept store at Shanghai Mart in China.

Upon the launch of the new store, a one meter tall 3D printed Hello Kitty figurine was unveiled, that is said to be the stores manager. Customers of the Hello Kitty 3D printing store can wander around the showroom and place their orders for custom accessories of their favourite character, that has been around since 1974. While choosing between different materials, colours and finishes Hello Kitty fans can also personalise their 3D printed order with individual messages or names on it.

Back in July last year, Sanrio has already introduced workshops at a Hello Kitty 3D printing concept store in Hong Kong in collaboration with 3D designer Marco King Chan, showing customers the printing process first hand after customising their own merchandise. Making Hello Kitty products available through this approach will certainly help the brand gain new fans but also bring excitement to existing ones.

If the concept store proves to be successful, Sanrio plans to open an official flagship store in Shanghai.

3D printer making Chinese space suit parts

BEIJING, May 4 (Xinhua) — Chinese researchers have used 3D printing technology to make a safer space suit for astronauts while spacewalking.

A research center under the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation used a 3D printer to create the vent pipes and the flanges connecting the pipes used on extravehicular space suit, according to a recent report from China Space News.

The vent pipe and the flange as a whole can improve the reliability and safety of the space suit, and suits can be made more efficiently. Researchers will use the technique to make more parts, says the report.

The technology has been approved by the Scientific Research Training Center for Chinese Astronauts.

China plans to launch its second orbiting space lab, Tiangong-2, in 2016, and aims to put a permanent manned space station into service around 2022.

Chinese astronauts have three kinds of space suit: inside-capsule suit, inside-capsule jacket and extravehicular space suit.

The inside-capsule space suit is used in case the pressure changes in the spaceship, usually during launch and landing periods.

The blue and lightweight inside-capsule jacket is used during normal flight, and is more convenient for work in the spaceship or space station.

The extravehicular space suit is the most complicated, providing life support system for astronauts during spacewalks.

The Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology has successfully developed a multi-laser metal 3D printer, enabling astronauts to print items with just one 3D printer in space.

Wang Lianfeng, senior engineer at the academy, says the 3D printing technology is suitable for making parts with complicated structures and odd shapes, such as the valves of rocket engines.

Its very difficult to process the complicated parts by traditional methods, says Wang. For example, it takes two groups of workers, working shifts around the clock, more than two weeks to make a part of a rocket engine, but a 3D printer can do it in just 16 hours.

Wang says China is on the cutting edge of 3D printing technology.

The multi-laser metal 3D printer in the Shanghai Academy of Spaceflight Technology is like a gray-colored cabinet.

The 3D printer used in space is similar to regular printer in principle, but it should be smaller and lighter, and must undergo more zero gravity tests, says Wang.

There are still many difficulties to overcome in 3D printing in space. Researchers are still developing materials suitable for 3D printing and the precision of 3D printed items needs to be improved, Wang adds.

Arnoldstein / Dusseldorf, September 2016. Chemson, the world market leader in polymer additives with headquarters in Arnoldstein, Austria, will again be at the K-Messe trade fair and present its latest innovations: with 3D Vinyl™, the first 3D-printable PVC filament, soon all the advantages of PVC will also be usable for 3D printing. With the new additives for polymer formwork profiles, entirely new possibilities in building construction are opening up and Chemson is also forging new paths in the soft PVC area with solid material stabilizers. The leading international trade fair in the plastics and rubber industry takes place from October 19th to 26th in Dusseldorf; Chemson will have a new stand design that is located, as usual, in Hall 6, stand 6E/43.

The K is the ideal platform for us to present our latest developments and we have more to offer this time. At the trade fair, we will show an extraordinary additive formulation for 3D printing, a new stabilizer generation for soft PVC and a formulation for new applications of PVC in building construction, announced CSO Alexander Hofer on the innovations of Chemson.

Chemson: the world-leading manufacturer of polymer additives and the innovative force for the plastics processing industry. The Chemson range of products includes, among others, stabilisers for products such as easy-care window profiles, high resistance PVC pipes, on-board car electronics systems, wafer-thin packaging films and innovative floor coverings.

Carbon is raising a $200 million Series D to scale 3D printing for manufacturing

Its hard to get a much better poster child for your 3D printing company than Futurecraft 4D. Adidass line of custom 3D sneakers are all you really need to know when it comes to 3D printings potential as a manufacturing powerhouse.Bay Area-based Carbonhas been bringing that technology to life courtesy of its proprietary Digital Light Synthesis technology, which is able to print out at a much more rapid clip than traditional methods.

This morning, the company announced that the first closing in a $200 million Series D, courtesy of a mix of investors, including Fidelity, General Electric and Hydra Ventures, Adidass somewhat ominously named investment arm.

Whats quite clear is we have momentum with a lot of customers, Carbon co-founder and CEO Joseph DeSimone said on a call with TechCrunch this week. This idea of 3D manufacturing is coming to bear. Were making millions of pairs of shoes with [Adidas], and as we do that, were learning a lot about what it takes to manufacture [] This is going to allow us to really step on the gas and support our customers, both in the US and outside.

The Adidas deal is far and away the most public facing of Carbons current applications. TheFuturecraft lineis starting off small at 5,000 pairs in its initial run, but things are ramping up quickly, demonstrating the technologys scalability over more traditional 3D printing technologies like FDM.

DeSimone says the companies plan to be printing out shoes in the hundreds of thousands of pairs next year. That number could jump to the millions in 2019, aided by a relatively small number of the companys machines. This latest, massive round of funding (which will bring the companys total up to $420 million), will be used to expand the technologys footprint into other categories like consumer electronics, medical and dental, which has already proven a popular application for the technology.

Weve invented something fundamentally different that has the ability to scale, says DeSimone. Its really taken off because of the progress our customers have made.

3D printing has been a long sought after technology for manufacturing, for its ability to create unique, customized products. Unlike its desktop counterpart, which has stagnated somewhat in recent years, additive manufacturing is still very much a focus for many investors.

But the tech has long had issues with speed and scalability. Carbons success have been relatively modest on these fronts, but are impressive nonetheless. And a big injection of funding could be what the tech really needs to accelerate.

Carbon is a Silicon Valley-based company working at the intersection of hardware, software and molecular science to deliver on the promise of additive manufacturing. The company empowers its customers and partners to evolve beyond using 3D printing for basic prototyping to producing at scale by revolutionizing how they design, engineer, make and deliver their products.

Is the 3-D printing revolution already over?

You can make a lot of cool things with a 3-D printer, but excited investors arent one of them.

Stratasys(SSYS), the company that owns 3-D consumer printer MakerBot, saw its stock plunge more than 30% after the company warned that fourth quarter earnings would be worse than expected late Monday. It also issued a poor forecast for the rest of 2015.

Not even an attempt to capitalize on the Super Bowl halftime show buzz was enough to help.

Stratasys put out a press release Tuesday morning to tout the fact that it was making 3-D printed mohawk headpieces to be worn by Katy Perrys backup dancers on her upcoming world tour.

The shocking results from Stratasys caused a big sell-off in the industry as well. Shares of key rival3D Systems(DDD)fell nearly 10%. The stocks of two smaller 3-D printing companies –ExOne(XONE)andvoxeljet(VJET)– were significantly lower as well.

The 3-D printer revolution:3-D printers have gone mainstream in the past few years.Amazon(AMZN)has a 3-D printing store on its site.Staples(SPLS)sells MakerBot products as well as the Cube from 3D Systems. Heck, evenstruggling RadioShackhas 3-D printers at many of its locations.

Rendering images in 3-D and printing them out is undeniably cool. Its something that many businesses in a variety of industries are using. Clothing, engine parts, food and hearing aids are just a few examples of items that can be produced with 3-D printers.

But 3-D printing for consumers may just turn out to be a fad that is in the process of peaking. The main reason for the worse-than-expected sales for Stratasys in the fourth quarter was slowing growth at MakerBot.

Not a household item:3-D printers are still pretty expensive. The MakerBot Replicator Mini sells for $1,375.

The consumer market for 3-D printing is on the downswing said Cathie Wood, chief investment officer at Ark Investment Management. But Wood still likes Stratasys stock. In fact, she said her firm bought more Tuesday as it fell. She calls it a fall through the cracks kind of stock.

Wood concedes that earnings estimates for Stratasys will be reduced sharply as a result of its warning. And several Wall Street analysts were quick to cut their price targets and ratings on the stock Monday night and Tuesday morning.

Still, she thinks investors are overreacting to the poor performance at MakerBot and said that the manufacturing side of the 3-D printing market is still an expansive opportunity.

Her firm also owns shares of ExOne as well asMaterialise(MTLS), another 3D printer stock.

Wood is probably right that 3-D printing will be a huge business on the industrial side.

But other companies recognize that already. The 3-D printing pure play companies are inevitably going to face more competition.Hewlett-Packard(HPQ)is planning to enter the business next year, for example.

And the company that winds up dominating the industry in the future may still not even exist.

But the big pullback in the stock shows how risky it is to invest in any industry thats still in its infancy. Only a few companies may wind up surviving.

Remember Think Global, Aptera, Coda Automotive and Fisker? They are electric car companies that didnt wind up becomingTesla(TSLA). They all went bankrupt.

Xinhua Insight 3D printing reshaping Made in China

A 3D printing machine prints a vase at the 3D Printing Demonstration Base in Dalian, northeast Chinas Liaoning Province, Dec. 30, 2015.

BEIJING, Feb. 27 (Xinhua) – The KOCEL group, an iron and steel foundry in northwest Chinas Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region, has reinvented itself through new technology.

Founded in 1966, the company which was once owned by the state, now uses 3D printing for a cleaner, leaner production process.

3D printing is changing the way foundries operate, revitalizing a process which has basically remained the same in China for 6,000 years, said Meng Qingwen, deputy director of the companys 3D printing center.

Traditionally, molten metal is cast into shapes by pouring it into a mold, usually made of sand, and waiting for it to solidify. In the past, to make a complex shape, technicians would break the design down into simple components, make templates of each part individually and then combine the pieces before going on to make the mold. A 3D printer, on the other hand, can make an integrated sand mold of the most complex of shapes directly.

With the new technology, the accuracy of the casting process has increased from 1 mm to 0.2 mm, and the scrap rate has fallen from around 30 percent to less than 5 percent, Meng said.

A diesel engine block, one of the most difficult jobs for any ironworks, now takes only one day, compared with eight days in the past.

Chairman of KOCEL Peng Fan, said the group brought 3D printing equipment from Germany in 2012 following privatization. KOCEL now uses 3D printing to make parts ranging from a few kilos to 10 tonnes for General Electric, Siemens and other big international players.

One of the main advantages of 3D printing is that the process is much cleaner and less labor-intensive than traditional foundry work. Peng said that some technicians who have been freed from their grimy, sweaty work by the technology have been transferred to traditional workshops for the time-being. They are awaiting training for other positions in the company, like sales and customer service.

Innovation is not a short-term thing. A company has to continually innovate to keep alive, Peng said.

Apart from foundries, 3D printing has also applications across many industries, including automobiles, electrical appliances, biomedicine and aeronautics.

Lu Bingheng with the Chinese Academy of Sciences teaches 3D-printing at Xian Jiaotong University. He claims research on 3D printing is thriving in China.

According to the world intellectual property organization, Chinese applicants account for a quarter of worldwide patents in 3D printing and robotics, making it the only middle-income country approaching the level of technological innovation of developed countries.

Lu said 3D printing, vital to research and development of high-end items, will greatly help enterprises.

Affected by the global economic downturn, many manufacturers have problems like overcapacity, pollution and low-end products which 3D printing can help.

Research by the McKinsey Global Institute found China had performed well in customer-focused and efficiency-driven innovation, which include consumer electronics, Internet services and flexible manufacturing.

According to McKinsey, new opportunities could contribute 1 to 2.2 trillion U.S. dollars a year to the Chinese economy, or 24 percent of total GDP growth by 2025, if transformation of manufacturing continues, particularly digitization.

However, He Jun of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences institute of industrial economics, believes 3D printing is only a small factor in Chinas giant manufacturing industry, and it is too early to say if China is heading toward an intelligent manufacturing stage.

3D printing is hard to apply on a large scale considering it prints irregular, customized products with very high cost, he said.

While He and others are cautious about 3D printings prospects, others argue that the technology will definitely rock global manufacturing someday soon.

Lin is team leader at Tsinghua Universitys laboratory of biofabrication and rapid prototyping technology, which studies the 3D printings application in biomanufacturing. He said that unlike traditional manufacturing that is subtractive, 3D printing is additive.

Traditional manufacturing is like digging a cave house, when you need to remove the unwanted earth, while 3D printing is like building a house, or whatever you want with bricks, laid piece by piece. he explained.

The technology may not change current manufacturing instantly, but for sure it will have a profound impact, he said.

The debate is expected to be brought to the annual two sessions of lawmakers and political advisors early in March, which will set specific plans for the countrys manufacturing aspirations by 2025.
