By AlleyWatch: Voodoo Manufacturing is a software-enabled 3D printing factory that works with major brands to produce high-quality products, prototypes and parts at scale.
JP Buntinx for The Merkle: The Printrbelt prints objects on the belt and then moves down the Z axis to get the object onto the surface below
Ultrasonic manipulation uses ultrasonic waves for handling of a wide range of components and materials, which potentially enables the creation of a more versatile 3D printers. Because of the non-contact nature of ultrasonic manipulation, particles and components with very different mechanical properties and shapes can be handled with a single ultrasonic manipulator.
Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.
The production version, still to be named, will extend the third dimension to a meter. GE Additive said the machines "build geometry will be customizable and scalable for an individual customers project. Its feature resolution and build-rate speeds will equal or better todays additive machines."
OZY.com: In Pittsburgh, Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh and Robert Morris University are at the forefront of additive technology.
Alex Knapp for Forbes: That push for innovation is one reason why Team Penske signed a deal with 3D printing company Stratasys earlier this year for technical support and services.
While OCT is widely utilized in other industries, its use in 3D printing is a new concept. Axsun has added OCT imaging capabilities to the printhead of industrial 3D printers to enable real-time, high-resolution scanning of each layer as it is being deposited.
Jim O'Donnell for TechTarget: The era of 3D printing and additive manufacturing may be just around the corner, but the industry needs to coalesce for it to grow to scale, according to panel at Rapid + TCT conference.
John Biggs for TechCrunch: The Blackbelt Kickstarter will launch in three days and you can expect the system to cost about 9,500 for a desktop system or 12,500 euro for a larger system with standing supports.
Angela Monaghan for The Guardian: Expanding hi-tech manufacturing is vital to the UK staying competitive, says Siemens UK boss Juergen Maier
MSN: Apple chief Tim Cook announced Apple is creating a fund to get more people in the US to do "advanced manufacturing," kicking it off with a billion dollars.
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: A collaboration between MIT's Self-Assembly Lab, Steelcase and product designer Christophe Guberan, however, has resulted in a new technique known as Rapid Liquid Printing - it can reduce the time of some 3D print jobs from hours to minutes.
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology via Science Daily: As a consequence of the properties of glass, such as transparency, thermal stability and resistance to acids, the use of this material in 3D-printing opens up manifold new applications in production and research, such as optics, data transmission, and biotechnology.
A new 3-D printing method has been developed to create objects that can permanently transform into a range of different shapes in response to heat.

Pleora's Visual Inspection System helps operators detect errors and defects for unique component types, assembly steps, and custom low-run products where automated optical inspection (AOI) is too complex and expensive. The system helps DICA Electronics: Avoid costly, errors as a result of detecting errors at different phases in production, Speed time in detecting the root cause of the in-field errors with Tracking & Reporting apps for traceability, Maintain consistency in training new employees on requirements or with staff any time a new product is added, Easily train the system using 'good product' images for multiple product lines with no programming skills required, Reduce subjective decision-making, especially over a long shift, reducing error-escapes.
