The market share is increasing and more production industries are acquiring 3D printing units. Subtractive manufacturing has been rendered less effective, but there are many industries that are reluctant to give up their old ways.
Russell Compact Sieve® paired with innovative ultrasonic technology increases throughput and prototype iteration at New Balance
- Investment of €30 million in state-of-the-art 3D-printing factory - Creation of more than 50 new advanced manufacturing jobs at Materials Solutions in Worcester - Part of Siemens' strategy to build a global AM services business - New AM factory will be fully powered by Siemens Digital Enterprise solutions
Researchers in Oregon State University's College of Engineering have taken a key step toward the rapid manufacture of flexible computer screens and other stretchable electronic devices, including soft robots.
3D Printing Technologies Set to Transform Global Homelessness with 600-800 Square Foot Homes Printed in Under 24 Hours for $4000 in Underserved Communities
3D printing is becoming the standard in preparing for surgical procedures, using patient-specific models, and implanting devices and tissue during the operation with the help of surgical guides.
Swinburne has received a record $135 million grant from engineering giant Siemens to digitise its Factory of the Future and create Australia's first fully immersed Industry 4.0 facility.
In a recent project, Renishaw used its additive manufacturing (metal 3D printing) expertise to help the University Hospital of Wales (UHW) treat a patient who suffered cancer of the lower jaw and required removal of the affected region coupled with reconstructive work.
"InventoryBot has been a year in the making and has tools that provide users with everything from 'direct print' to the management of complex multi-part product construction. It is THE solution for small manufacturers looking to outsource parts creation,"
Casey created a 3D printer that uses pellets instead of filament. This was no easy feat, and the design within the pellet feeder is the "secret sauce" that finally enabled Casey to develop her perfect soles, which are used in their line of Athena and Artemis sandals.
America Makes, Laser Institute of America, Fab Foundation and Fab Lab Hub Collaborate in 2018 Digital Fabrication Conference
Thought leaders in 3D Printing, Smart Manufacturing, New Collar Workforce training, STEM education and Entrepreneurship explore how new digital fabrication tools like 3D Printing are changing the world
Brian Heater for TechCrunch: Using an augmented reality headset and two controllers, the designer builds a 3D model using a CAD (computer-aided design) program. A robotic arm then goes to work constructing a skeletal model using a simple plastic depositing 3D printer
The Engineer: Researchers at the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) have used a new 3D printing technique to produce complex nanoscale metal structures that are orders of magnitude smaller than previously possible.
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
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.
