Using tech co-developed by MIT Professor Nicholas Fang, Boston Micro Fabrication makes ultraprecise, millimeter-sized products.

BMF says its printing technology, called projection micro-stereolithography, makes it the only 3D printing company that can match the precision of injection molding. That allows customers to avoid ordering tiny molds for new products and prototypes, a process that can take time and be prohibitively expensive — Kawola says the molds needed to make some of the parts BMF prints cost up to half a million dollars. That makes 3D printing the cheaper and simpler production option in many cases.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
