Shanghai instals 3D bus shelters

Cao Chen via The Telegarph: Shanghai has installed a set of 3D printed bus shelters, believed to be the world's first, to serve a bus route in suburban Jinshan district

3D printing revives hard-to-find Porsche Classic parts

Andrew Krok for CNet: When it comes to plastic, Porsche uses selective laser sintering, which is not the same as the fused deposition modeling that you see in most desktop-based 3D printers.

Startup Wants to Connect Thousands of 3D-printers in a Blockchain-based Network Hub

Kata Karath for CoinTelegraph: 3D-TOKEN, a project of the Italian Politronica Srl startup wants to integrate it with Blockchain technology to create a 'one of a kind' glocal decentralized Just-In-Time Factory 4.0 matching the digital revolution of the 21st century.

HP Accelerates Democratization of 3D Printing With Breakthrough Full Color Platform

Portfolio expansion ignites new wave of voxel-level innovation with low cost HP Jet Fusion 300 / 500 Series for functional parts in full color, black or white; Channel program evolution and new collaboration with Dassault Systèmes

3D-printed objects change color on demand

Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: When items are printed using the new technology, they're made up of voxels that incorporate either red, yellow or blue light-sensitive dye. All of the voxels take on their colors when the object is exposed to ultraviolet light.

Here's What Life Will Be Like With 3D Printers That Can Create Anything

Kristin Houser for Futurism: Today's desktop 3D printers are fairly limited in terms of capabilities. However, we could be just a couple of decades away from a world in which every home has a 3D printer, capable of producing almost anything we can imagine.

Novel 3D printing technique yields high-performance composites

Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences: Given the modular nature of their ink designs, many different filler and matrix combinations can be implemented to tailor electrical, optical, or thermal properties of the printed objects.

How to invest in 3D printing

Iona Bain for IG: D printing has been called the 'third industrial revolution' and it has a market that's expected to be worth $35 billion in 2020. That doesn't make 3D printing an easy target for investors. Here's our guide to investing in the sector.

Why Siemens, GE and Rolls-Royce are turning to 3D printing

Sara Murphy for GreenBiz: 3D printing techniques, however, could be almost universally preferable, if industry steers in the right direction. And clear pathways exist for maximizing the technology's green potential.

Carnegie Mellon University Extends Research into 3D Micro-Additive Manufacturing with Optomec Aerosol Jet Printed Electronics System

Developing novel methods to create next generation manufacturing processes for sensors, antennas and energy harvesting devices

The Future of 3D Printing

Many companies that know how to design for metal 3D printing have found suitable applications and have ordered parts. But these applications are still in their infancy.

This Device Is Trying To Revolutionize 3D Printing

Dave Pinter for PSFK: The process works with the robot arm dispensing a stream of silicone into a tank of clear gel, the consistence of which isn't too far off from hair gel. The technique allows for object with internal volumes to be printed without extra internal support.

HP unveils S$100m campus, home to its first advanced manufacturing centre

Jacquelyn Cheok for Business Times: Smarc, a 6,000 sq ft facility, allows engineers to design, experiment and implement solutions to improve HP's manufacturing processes. The target is to boost productivity by at least 20 per cent.

Samsung announces R&D partnership with Clemson, USC to promote advanced manufacturing

Andrew Moore for Upstate Business Journal: The new partnership includes a program that aims to develop better manufacturing techniques for home appliances, foster public-private collaboration, and encourage more students to pursue advanced manufacturing as a career.

How Additive Manufacturing is Affecting the Industry

New powdered metal alloys and plastics are continuously in development. The safest bet for large manufacturers is to partner with material suppliers to ensure constant access to these new materials.
