From a 6-mile high view of the world, the AM process is less wasteful than conventional subtractive manufacturing processes, and allows for improved resource efficiency.
Color is opening up a world of new possibilities for 3D printing. It's helping surgeons create models to prepare for surgery, allowing manufacturers to develop better parts, and enabling customization not previously possible.
Specialty materials that have different mechanical, thermal, chemical, temperature, and conductive properties will continue to enable use cases where designs can be further optimized through the specification of specialty materials that best suit the part requirements.
3D printers are amazing for makers everywhere, as they enable easy, cheap, and fast progress on projects. They can't do everything though, especially if you want a different material from plastic, you're for the most part out of luck.
Launched in collaboration with HighTechXL, Hexagon, and Ultimaker, the challenge offers select companies a spot in a ten-week acceleration program designed to launch or mature their businesses.
Transitioning to a biobased manufacturing economy has been demonstrably difficult to date; however, there are signs that governments are introducing policy initiatives to overcome some of these challenges.
Can 3D printing be used in the manufacture of safety critical vehicle parts?
There are three primary uses for ESD safe plastics: electronics manufacturing (e.g. ESD safe jigs and fixtures for printed circuit board manufacturing), materials in a combustible/explosive environment, and nuisance static charge elimination
SME created the Additive Manufacturing Competition to attract and introduce the younger generation to emerging technologies that manufacturers have adopted over the past few years.
The growing number of industrialisation questions are indicative of a growing maturity in the marketplace. AM machines are moving out of prototyping applications and research laboratories and into mainstream production manufacturing.
- 2019 Accelerator continues focus on additive manufacturing and expands to include sustainable packaging solutions. - Selected companies will relocate to Stanley Black & Decker's new Manufactory 4.0 Center in Hartford, CT for three months
U.S. Army Research Lab Selects 3D Systems to Develop World's Largest, Fastest Metal Powder 3D Printer
United States government invests $15 million towards the development of the next generation of metal 3D printing technology - advancing U.S. competitiveness and national security.
With all the buzz about these new design tools, there is still quite a bit of ground left to be covered in ensuring these next-generation designs are actually manufacturable. That is where we can really shine.
The materials have a non-uniform, crystalline structure, making components built with them much stronger than those built using a standard uniform lattice structure. So much stronger, in fact, that they can withstand seven times the amount of energy ...
