Cool, Indonesian People Make “Printer” 3D

Starting from his love for the graphic design world, John Djauhari now assembling machines printer (printer) 3D. By leveraging open source technology, 3D printers that can print documents assembled Johanes digital into three-dimensional objects.

John worked as a product designer. Some clients who want to make a product sometimes is not satisfied if only to see the design in the form of digital documents. They want physical shape despite the small size.

“Well, from there, why do not I make a 3D printer itself,” he said when met at the show Popcon KompasTekno Asia 2013 in Jakarta Convention Center, beginning last July.

John also likes the toys (toys). Many colleagues who designed character toys and wanted to realize his ideas into tangible form. Some of them use the services of John for 3D printing.

Keseriusan Johanes merakit printer 3D dimulai pada 2011. Ia mendirikan Bikin Bikin 3D Print dan aktif ikut pameran untuk memperkenalkan teknologi ini. Kala itu, desain luar printer buatannya masih berupa kerangka. Setelah melewati beberapa kali pengembangan, kini printer 3D-nya semakin akurat dan didesain menggunakan casing. “Akurasinya sampai 0,2 mm,” tutur Johanes.

Akurasi itu dibuktikan dengan mencetak replika arca yang penuh detail dan lekukan. Johanes terlebih dahulu memindai seluruh bagian arca asli yang tersimpan di Museum Nasional. Setelah mendapat filepindainya, mulailah Johanes mendesain 3D lalu mencetak dengan printer buatannya sendiri.

Memanfaatkan “open source

Dalam mengembangkan printer 3D, Johanes memanfaatkan teknologi open source untuk driver dansoftware. Ia ikut dalam forum internet yang khusus membahas teknologi printer 3D.

“Di forum ini, kita bisa tahu kalau ada algoritma yang lebih baik dan memberi struktur lebih mudah. Bukan cuma soal teknis, dari sana juga kita tahu soal materi yang mudah dicari dan lebih terjangkau,” jelasnya.

Untuk mendesain bentuk 3D, Johanes menggunakan software Pronter Face dan Repetier. Komputer yang dipakainya terhubung ke motherboard printer melalui kabel USB. Motherboard inilah yang memerintahkan gerakan koordinat X, Y, dan Z, menerjemahkan dokumen digital menjadi obyek nyata 3D.

Printer 3D yang dibuat Johanes masuk dalam tahap pengembangan akhir. Ia membuka pre-orderdengan harga Rp 10 juta. Setelah masa pre-order berakhir pada September 2013, printer 3D bakal dibanderol Rp 12 juta.

Tilera’s TILE-Gx72 Processor Sets World Record for Suricata IPS/IDS: Industry’s Highest Performance

Tilera® Corporation, the leader in 64-bit manycore general purpose processors, today announced it has achieved the highest ever single-chip Suricata performance, delivering 4x the performance, and 7x the performance-per-watt of a high-end x86 multicore processor. Suricata is the industry-leading open source Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS) developed by the Open Information Security Foundation (OISF) and supported by the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to secure networks against next generation security attacks.

Sophisticated intrusion detection and prevention, such as Suricata implements, requires deep packet inspection and pattern-matching that taxes the capabilities of even the highest performance processors. The Suricata performance achieved on the TILE-Gx72 processor is double that of the previous record-holder, the TILE-Gx36, providing organizations with network security that scales with their networks.

“Tilera’s TILE-Gx processors are continuing to lead the market in Suricata performance and the impressive results with the TILE-Gx72 demonstrates the synergy between a massively manycore processor, coupled with Suricata’s multi-threaded implementation,” stated Matt Jonkman, president, OISF. “With the continuing rise of security threats and incidents, corporate enterprises, carriers and government organizations are adopting Suricata for their IDS/IPS and leveraging the TILE-Gx processor family coupled with the MDE development environment to achieve the best performance.”

The TILE-Gx72 is the world’s highest performance and highest efficiency processor with integrated System-on-Chip (SoC) features including eight 10Gb Ethernet ports, 24-lanes of PCI Express, four DDR3 memory controllers, and 23 Mbytes of on-chip cache. The wire-speed, programmable mPIPE front end processes 240 Mpps of bi-directional Ethernet traffic and improves the efficiency of network-heavy applications. With its exceptionally low power profile, several TILE-Gx72 processors can be populated in a single compact datacenter appliance, providing 576 cores of compute and 640Gbps of packet processing with 8 sockets.

The multi-threaded Suricata IDS/IPS application, version 1.4.0, was ported using Tilera’s Multicore Development Environment (MDE) version 4.1, a full-featured and standards based run-time Linux environment for TILE-Gx processors. The recent “live rule swap” update supports dynamic insertion of new threat signatures into Suricata and enables rapid response to threats such as Zero-Day Attacks.

“We track Moore’s Law with the tile-based architecture and significantly raise the bar with our TILE-Gx72 processor, incorporating twice the number of cores of our previous high-end processor. Tilera’s high-performance iMesh interconnect enables Suricata performance to scale linearly with the additional cores,” said Devesh Garg, president, and CEO of Tilera. “Once again, we are demonstrating that the TILE-Gx architecture provides a real-world advantage in scalable application performance, power efficiency, and overall compute density.”

The Suricata solution is available on all of Tilera’s TILE-Gx platforms, ranging from the TILEncore-Gx series of PCIe cards with multiple 10Gbps Ethernet interfaces, to the TILEmpower-Gx 1RU standalone appliance and the TILExtreme-Gx 1RU multi-socket platform with up to 288 cores of compute.
