How Machine Learning Will Unlock The Future Of 3D Printing

Cliff Kuang for Fast Co.Design: The bridge is really just a proof-of-concept for printed steel applications that range from shipbuilding to offshore oil rigs. Getting there will require not just better software, but robots that can teach themselves how to get better at 3D printing.

Will Voxeljet's High Speed Sintering Reinvent 3D Printing?

Zacks Equity Research: The HSS technology involves an infrared absorbing ink, that is selectively jetted onto layers of plastic powder, which are then exposed to infrared light. The powder melts under the light and forms functional plastic parts with qualities similar to those produced via Selective Laser Sintering, Multi Jet Fusion, or injection molding.

Europe looks at 3D printing to pursue its industrial renaissance

Jorge Valero for EURACTIV.com: The European Commission backs additive manufacturing as one of the pillars to strengthen its industrial sector and step up efforts to maintain the EU's global advantage.

Siemens and HP partner to advance 3D printing for product development and industrial production

Building on a longstanding partnership, HP Inc. and Siemens are accelerating 3D printing for industrial production through the creation of a new HP-certified Additive Manufacturing (AM) software module from Siemens.

Low-cost Wearables Manufactured by Hybrid 3D Printing

New method combines precision printing of stretchable conductive inks with pick-and-place of electronic components to make flexible, wearable sensors.

Laser ultrasound: the future of metal 3D printing?

Nell Walker for Manufacturing Global: Using laser ultrasound rather than camera imaging, it is hoped that Dutton's work could encourage the use of 3D printing within mass manufacturing industries, as it removes the need for a separate inspection process.

Defending 3D Printers From Hackers

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.

Space-Based 3-D Printing Reaches Milestone

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.

Voodoo Automates 3D Printing to Take on Injection Molding

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: With Project Skywalker, Voodoo Manufacturing was able to automate an important part of its manufacturing process.

Toward additive manufacturing

Phys.org: Although additive manufacturing has been around since the 1980s, the technology has advanced rapidly over the past few years.

100x faster, 10x cheaper: 3D metal printing is about to go mainstream

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

How GE Appliances Built an Innovation Lab to Rapidly Prototype Products

Harvard Business Review: Midway through 2014, GE Appliances launched FirstBuild - a GE-equipped innovation lab and micro-factory - to augment the strengths of a long-established company with those of an entrepreneurial startup. Separation is the key.

The US Navy 3D printed a concept submersible in four weeks

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.

New 3D Printing Technique Significantly Strengthens Materials

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.

AFRL researchers explore automation, additive technologies for cost efficient solar power

Phys.org: Solar cells can generate electricity in an environmentally friendly way, but current, complex fabrication costs make the technology expensive.
