NASA has successfully tested its first rocket engine component made through 3D printing. The 3D printed component produced a breathtaking 20,000 pounds of thrust.
One of the first trends driving change is 3D printings transition from prototyping to commercial-grade production, combined with the increasing popularity of metal as a printing material.
The collaboration has already resulted in the 'reinvention of a lamp holder previously prone to part failure, and the automation of a previously labor intensive line using lightweight design.
Top Five Teams Win a Share of $100,000 in Virtual Modeling Stage of NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Competition
Winning teams successfully created digital representations of the physical and functional characteristics of a house on Mars using specialized software tools.
3D Printing Technologies Set to Transform Global Homelessness with 600-800 Square Foot Homes Printed in Under 24 Hours for $4000 in Underserved Communities
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) offers network convergence and will enable effective implementations of Industrial Internet-of-the-Things set-ups.
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.
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.
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.
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 technologys green potential.
Diogo Costa for KnowTechie: There are several aspects that characterize Industry 4.0, including (but not limited to): automated robots, additive manufacture, simulation, horizontal and vertical system integration, industrial IoT...
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 isnt too far off from hair gel. The technique allows for object with internal volumes to be printed without extra internal support.
Rich Haridy for New Atlas: What previously took over an hour to print could now be created in just minutes thanks to a new 3D printer design from engineers at MIT
How Integrated Thermal Protection Technology Can Prevent Solid State Relay Failure in Industrial Systems
New thermal protection technology for large industrial/commercial HVAC and refrigeration systems, heavy duty transportation, conveyor belts, assembly lines, medical, energy and other complex manufacturing systems.
Terri Hiskey for MinuteHack: Glass may have finally found its home, and last month we heard news that industrial companies, such as General Motors, GE Aviation, Boeing and Volkswagen, have all been using the smart glasses to help workers perform complex manual tasks.
