There is a large number of different cheap laser engravers out there that are a great way to get into laser engraving on a budget.
The study reveals that virtually all (99%) manufacturing executives surveyed believe an open ecosystem is important to advance 3D printing at scale. While 85% of manufacturers reported that industrial-scale AM has the potential to increase revenue for their business
SQ4D has completed construction of the world's largest permitted 3D printed home. The home is 1900 square feet and took only forty eight hours of print time, over an eight day period. The home was entirely printed and built onsite using less than $6000 in materials.
A 3D bioprinter privately owned by an American company has successfully printed with a large volume of human heart cells aboard the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory.
With all of the benefits of 3D printing, you'd think it would be as commonplace as Wi-Fi in today's world - but that's actually not the case. Many companies are struggling to find ways to incorporate 3D technology printing into their product development and manufacturing operations.
Nanotechnology involves the manipulation of matter on the atomic and molecular scale - structures between one and 100 nanometres in size. To put that into perspective, comparing a nanometre to a metre is like comparing the size of a marble to the size of the earth. Here Mark Howard, US country manager at automation parts supplier, EU Automation discusses three exciting applications of nanotechnology in manufacturing.
You can not only use your 3d printer for printing, but it is also an XYZ motion platform. By attaching a laser to the extruder, for example, you can easily convert your 3d printer to a laser engraver or even cutter.
For many manufacturers, the benefits of composite materials are still being discovered. Combining the strength of glass or carbon fiber with the adaptability of a resin system that can be tailor made and cost-efficient to suit your exact technical requirements.
By Lindsay Brownell for Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering at Harvard University: Multinozzle printer can switch between multiple inks up to 50 times per second.
- Atlas 3D helps designers define optimal part orientations for 'right first time' 3D printing - Cloud-based, GPU-accelerated Sunata software can reduce downstream 3D printing errors caused by thermal distortion up to one hundred times faster than other solutions on the mar
Inkbit Raises $12 Million in Equity Round Led by Stratasys and DSM Venturing to Propel Production of Its Vision-Based, Artificial Intelligence Additive Manufacturing Platform
Proceeds will be used to industrialize Inkbit's additive manufacturing system to fit the requirements of multi-material and volume manufacturing, expand the set of materials for medical, life sciences and robotics applications and install the first units for customers.
Introducing Fiber, the first 3D printer with AFP continuous carbon fiber reinforcement using high temperature resistant PEEK and PEKK, designed to deliver industrial fiber performance on the desktop
While there are free options to create gcode for lasers, at just $40, Lightburn gives you way more features that make the process not just more convenient but might also improve your results.
