This chapter explores 3D printing of X3D models.

Reference: Reese, Cody M., Remote Collaborative 3D Printing - Process Investigation, Technical Report TR-NAVFAC-EXWC-EX-1601, NAVFAC Engineering and Expeditionary Warfare Center (EXWC), Port Hueneme California, April 2016. From the abstract: "The intent of the project was to investigate the end-to-end process of transferring, receiving, manipulating, and printing a digital 3D model into an additively manufactured component. Several digital models were exchanged, and the steps, barriers, workarounds, and results have been documented." Numerous X3D examples, conclusions and recommendations are included.

CaffeinePubChem2519SticksColor Caffeine Pub Chem 2519 Sticks Color A methylxanthine naturally occurring in some beverages and also used as a pharmacological agent. Caffeine's most notable pharmacological effect is as a central nervous system stimulant, increasing alertness and producing agitation. It also relaxes SMOOTH MUSCLE, stimulates CARDIAC MUSCLE, stimulates DIURESIS, and appears to be useful in the treatment of some types of headache. Several cellular actions of caffeine have been observed, but it is not entirely clear how each contributes to its pharmacological profile. Among the most important are inhibition of cyclic nucleotide PHOSPHODIESTERASES, antagonism of ADENOSINE RECEPTORS, and modulation of intracellular calcium handling.

UavBeehive Uav Beehive Beehive shelter designed for concrete printing to provide recharging and wireless communications support for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Concept of operations (CONOPS): UAV quadcopters are able to fly in and fly out through circular access at top. Side door lets operators place portable electrical generator inside for robot recharging. Wireless local-area network (LAN) provides airborne video back to protected radio-relay link for offshore/remote monitoring. Rounded concrete shape protects installation from wind, mortar attack and small-arms fire. Expeditionary manufacturing approach frees personnel from tedious sentry duties.
