How to load a container ship Wired UK

 

Container ships are the pack mules of global trade, and journalist Rose George’s new book, Ninety Percent of Everything, examines how the steel boxes full of solids, liquids and gases get where they’re going. One huge challenge, George says, is simply loading and unloading these giant ships, a task that calls on physics, chemistry — and knowledge of pirate tactics. Bryan Gardiner

Anti-Gravity Object Modelling

 

MATAERIAL is a innovative project developed through collaborative research between Petr Novikov, Sasa Jokic from the Institute of Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IACC) and Joris Laarman Studio.

The method they’ve coined as “Anti Gravity Object Modelling” is a new method of additive manufacturing that gives the flexibility to create naturally flowing 3D curves without the need for support material. Rather than the layering of 2D planes to make up the 3D object this manufacturing process follows the stress lines of the curve and hardens almost immediately from extrusion.

The really impressive part seems to be that the forms can be printed on any surface regardless of its inclination. Without further knowledge of the materials, my first thought would be that with attributes like sticking to a vertical surface and cantilevering off it as shown in the video, it must use some pretty nasty additives.  The process is impressive none the less.
