Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: 3DEO, based in Los Angeles, Calif., may have found a method for dropping metal AM costs even further.
Computer scientists design flat sheets that transform themselves into smooth-surfaced, free-form objects
Phys.org: CurveUps are flat materials that transform themselves through material forces into the desired 3-D object.
The production version, still to be named, will extend the third dimension to a meter. GE Additive said the machine's "build geometry will be customizable and scalable for an individual customer's project. Its feature resolution and build-rate speeds will equal or better today's additive machines."
Among its directives, NFPA 652 outlines deadlines for sampling and analysis to identify potential risk areas for dust explosions in industrial facilities. Spotlight now turns to mitigation equipment.
The world of industry has been steadily advancing since the beginning of the Industrial Revolution, and this new move toward data-driven manufacturing strategy is simply the next step in revolutionizing the industry.
By 3D Printing Gauges, Jigs and Fixtures On-Demand and On-Site, Manufacturing Facility Saves an Average of Eight Weeks in Production
Gary Hilson for EBN Online: The smart factory is becoming a reality, but the transition to Industry 4.0 is a pragmatic one.
"The machine will 3D print aviation parts that are one meter in diameter, suitable for making jet engine structural components and parts for single-aisle aircraft"
The marriage of 3-D printing and the aerospace industry is a shining example of a relationship that's mutually beneficial. While it was the innovations of top aerospace manufacturers that ultimately led to today's interest in 3-D printing, it's these same designers and engineers who are now pushing the limits of current technology.
Eclipse Ventures and Munich Re / HSB Ventures Co-Lead Round for NYC IIoT Startup
James Dearsley for Seeking Alpha: 3D printing has the promise to provide all of the required solutions for our future cities, but what is the tech currently capable of?
Teflon and other functional coatings from an experienced applicator can solve design problems including excessive wear, sticking, noise and corrosion.
It is vital for manufacturers not to give away what they are best at, to some third-party contract manufacturing firm and compromise the quality and the experience promise that clients expect. The cost equation that's bothering these manufacturers, however, can be solved by shedding the non-core design tasks while retaining back the control in manufacturing.
Janene Pieters for NL Times: The bridge is the first of its kind in the world and is printed with pre-stressed and reinforced concrete, according to NOS.
Stephen J Bronner for Entrepreneur: Divergent 3D, founded by a one-time investor and two-time entrepreneur, holds patents on technologies that allow carmakers to print vehicles.

Zaber's X-LRQ-DE Series of linear stages have high stiffness, load, and lifetime capabilities in a compact size. The integrated linear encoder combined with stage calibration provides high accuracy positioning over the full travel of the device. At 36 mm high, these stages are excellent for applications where a low profile is required. The X-LRQ-DE's innovative design allows speeds up to 205 mm/s and loads up to 100 kg. Like all Zaber products, the X-LRQ-DE Series is designed for easy set-up and operation.
