3D printing is a relatively new industry. However, many different types of 3D printers are already available on the market. 3D printing enthusiasts buy a 3D printer in the heat of the moment and later regret. The 3D printing industry is advancing very rapidly. But, do not expect miracles to happen with your first 3D printer. 3D printers that can print objects on demand are now affordable. If you have patience and are okay with using limited materials, then you can buy the decently priced models available for sale. These take several hours to build an object and can usually work with two types of thermoplastic, namely PLA and ABS. The best consumer 3D printers cannot print objects bigger than a loaf of bread, but they print with amazing clarity, strength, smoothness, and finish. They are very useful for printing household objects such as small spare parts that are difficult to find in retail shops, or personalized salt-and-pepper shakers.

Twitter Icon
Making sure that your conference, or any event type, is a hit on Twitter could be the difference between having a few people show up, and having hundreds of engaged and interested fans show up. With some organization ahead of time, and a bit of work controlling the chaos on the day of the event, you can achieve that perfect mix of offline and online good hosting behavior. To help this post along, I’m going to pretend that I’m a person who runs a sports store. I’m having an event at my store where people are coming over to watch the local team in the playoffs for a #PlayoffParty2014 event. This event will tie in with a sale that’s happening, the #PlayoffSale, during the entire playoff run. Be a good host on Twitter: Start with a hashtag You likely have a number of hashtags that you’re working with. Your standard hashtags are good to use during the promotion of your event, but you can’t rely on them solely for your Twitter event’s buildup. For the example I’m using, I can still use my hashtag for the general #PlayoffSale, but I need a new one to connect discussions about the event. #PlayoffParty2014...

With the advent of smartphones and tablets and with their tight integration into our (online) lives, a natural need arose to optimize the content on the internet in such way that it is more easily and elegantly presentable on handheld devices. The idea of responsive design came fairly quickly, as one of the most logical solutions to the problem of adapting website content to look good on all screen sizes. However, synchronously with this change in web design paradigm, another idea gathered a lot of attention from design professionals. Existent for quite some time (after all, the whole concept is not truly original) but first brought into the spotlight by Google’s information hub, Google Now, the idea of cards which stand for chunks of information which are easily digestible and just sufficiently informative spread like wildfire in the world of web and mobile app design.   It would not be fair to call Google Now a new idea, either. After all, information hubs are a pretty old thing on the internet, and Apple’s Siri, a hugely popular (albeit often disputed) iOS virtual personal assistant does almost exactly the same thing: informs the user about weather, traffic and provides them with quick...

Engage your customers Just like you create a profile for your personal contacts, you should create a profile for your business.

Even though the question still rages over which CMS is the best, WordPress has undoubtedly recent times pushed itself to the fore and if popularity is anything to go by, it’s number one. Consequently, since the arrival of WordPress 3.8 two generations ago, many believe that the CMS has positioned itself as the front runner in technological terms too, surpassing Joomla and other alternatives. Why? Well, the level of functionality that WordPress offers can’t be equated and you can bend any site how you see fit, turning the most average website into something spectacular with a few tweaks and plug-ins. Again and again, we’ve seen lists of the best WordPress plug-ins, so being a little different; we thought we’d compile a list of the most underrated web design orientated add-ons. Let’s take a look. Instagram Image Gallery This very simple integration of the Instagram service allows you to add a feed from the social media site to your own. You can then give the plug-in permission to import images from specific users or a specific hashtag and it does the rest. Images can be shown in a slideshow or thumbnail and there are even options to customise the background, colour and...
