Atlanta Home Building up 66%!

House under construction

The Atlanta home building business is booming: up 66% in the last quarter alone according to this report of WSB TV. Construction permits climbed to almost 15,000 for the Metro Area, still too few for almost 6mln people now living in Atlanta. New homes are in short supply, wait times for lots and houses are increasing and so are prices! Even though the rough winter weather caused a “pause” in the frenetic construction pace, expect to hear more hammers banging in the 5 key metro counties: Gwinnett, Forsyth, Cherokee, North Fulton, Cobb and now also Paulding! Check this news report for further details.

3D Printers: new possibilities for the cultured marble industry

Mark-One-3d-Printer

 

The above 3D printer can print composite materials and opens an entirely new world to the composites market. Hospitality customers typically require a prototype for a new tub surround panel design to be installed in a mock up room. And as always, time is of the essence, not leaving much room for the traditional tooling process. Rapid prototyping with CNC routers has been available for about 8 years but the new 3D printing technology brings an entirely new definition to the word “rapid”. You want a custom inlay for your 100 room hotel renovation? A 3D prototype can be made within a few hours. The Mark One can also print fiberglass and carbon fiber, used in applications where high strength of the part is important. Read more about the Mark One printer by MarkForged .
