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.
Jack Schofield and Waverly Colville for Reuters: Layer by layer, 0.2 millimeters at a time, a specialized printing machine at Belgian chocolate shop Miam Factory applies melted chocolate to shape a three-dimensional object.
Binghamton University for R&D Magazine: A team of researchers from Binghamton University, State University of New York and MIT have identified some bottlenecks in 3D printers, that, if improved, could speed up the entire process.
Noah Smith for Bloomberg View: Discussions about manufacturing tend to get very contentious. Many economists and commentators believe that theres nothing inherently special about making things and that efforts to restore U.S. manufacturing to its former glory reek of industrial policy, protectionism, mercantilism and antiquated thinking.
