Charles Q. Choi for IEEE Spectrum: Researchers reveal three methods of verifying that 3d-printed parts have not been compromised by someone hacking the printer itself.
Mike Wall, SPACE.com: A 3D printer built by the California-based company Made in Space churned out multiple polymer-alloy objects - the largest of which was a 33.5-inch-long (85 centimeters) beam - during a 24-day test inside a thermal vacuum chamber (TVAC) here in Silicon Valley at NASA's Ames Research Center in June.
Loz Blain for New Atlas: Desktop Metal's Studio System includes a fully-automated, office-friendly sintering furnace with fast cycle times and a peak temperature of 1400°C, allowing for the sintering of a wide variety of materials
Andrew Liptak for The Verge: The team began work in August 2016, and used a massive industrial 3D Pinter called Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) to manufacture six carbon fiber sections, which were then assembled into the 30 foot long vehicle.
Kenny Walter for R&D Magazine: Researchers from Texas A&M University have strengthened 3D printed parts by applying traditional welding concepts to bond the submillimeter layers in a 3D printed part together.
Phys.org: Solar cells can generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way, but current, complex fabrication costs make the technology expensive.
Andy Rosen for The Boston Globe: The company said the amount represents the largest private haul for any 3D printing company focused on metal. Desktop Metal has now raised $212 million since its launch in 2015.
Stuart Nathan for The Engineer: Like several concepts in mobile additive manufacture, the Spider bots grew out of a concept to build bases for exploration on the Moon and other planets.
Kagan Pittman for Engineering.com: The robot combo has been tasked with automating a black oxide process, which involves dipping parts in various chemical baths in a precise sequence.
By AlleyWatch: Voodoo Manufacturing is a software-enabled 3D printing factory that works with major brands to produce high-quality products, prototypes and parts at scale.
JP Buntinx for The Merkle: The Printrbelt prints objects on the belt and then moves down the Z axis to get the object onto the surface below
"GE Additive and Oerlikon both understand the transformative power of additive manufacturing"
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.
By 3D Printing Gauges, Jigs and Fixtures On-Demand and On-Site, Manufacturing Facility Saves an Average of Eight Weeks in Production
Gary Hilson for EBN Online: The smart factory is becoming a reality, but the transition to Industry 4.0 is a pragmatic one.
