Broadband

A method of transmission that allows multiple media to be transferred over a single wire or line, at the same time, and very rapidly, at least several megabits per second. Colloquially, the term is often applied to any Internet connection other than a dial-up connection. Broadband (and Internet connections generally) have allowed global businesses to operate much more closely to real time.

The ability of the material to resist damage depends on the weakest adhesive layer, and stacked layer adhesion was generally small in FDM, so the material performance was poor.
Obviously, the values of the frequency parameters computed using 3D FEM analysis are in excellent agreement with those given in Tables 3-12, obtained by applying the HWM, DQM, and FDM.
Evaluation of the Influence of Parameters of FDM Technology on the Selected Mechanical Properties of Models.
In FDM, a 3-D model is "sliced" in a software program and the output is loaded into the printer, usually via an SD card, which typically uses the same software as a CNC machine.
By fully simulating the unique characteristics of the FDM process, we're able to bring unprecedented accuracy and speed to the design and validation process," said Scott Berkey, CEO, SIMULIA, Dassault Systemes.
Table 1 compares the exact values for the velocity U(Y, T) with both the FEM and the FDM values (for more details on the exact and FDM solutions, see [16]).
Although both FDM and SLS theoretically can work with any thermoplastics, it sometimes has proven quite challenging to develop grades that work effectively with these 3D printing techniques.
Output early exercise boundaries [S.sup.[theta].sub.f] ([[tau].sub.n]) and American put option prices [V.sup.n.sub.j] (for j = 0, 1, ..., J([[tau].sub.n]) - 1, [V.sup.n.sub.j] = K - [S.sub.j] and for j = J([[tau].sub.n]), ..., N, [V.sup.n.sub.j] are obtained from FDM (38) with the new boundary condition (41)).
In an interview yesterday, Mr Hobbs said it would be "impossible" to combine an active role with FDM and the work of a TD "as the job of a TD is a full-time one and the commitment required intensive".
According to its website, FDM Group is a global professional services provider with a focus on information technology.
Stratasys is a provider of 3D printing and additive manufacturing solutions, announced that the US Patent Trial and Appeal Board of the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has denied Afinia's requests for inter partes review of three important FDM technology patents directed to liquefier structure, temperature control, and tool paths for constructing part perimeters.
Designed for reliable and unattended high-volume use, each Xtend 500 box contains 500 cubic inches of FDM thermoplastic material, delivering more than five times the output of standard canisters.
