Article from BigRep. As FFF extrusion technology reaches the peak of its development cycle, it becomes less likely that the technology's quality will meaningfully improve. Additive manufacturing must be rethought from its foundation.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute Receives $25 Million Award to Bring Cold Spray 3D Printing Techniques to the Battlefield
Funding from the Army will support advanced work on cold spray; the portable repair and manufacturing technique could increase the readiness of military vehicles and other units.
Today, there are numerous options when looking to source an additive manufacturing (AM) / 3D printing platform, and it can be confusing for potential users attempting to select the best fit for their specific endeavours.
-- Companies will develop first-to-market additive manufacturing solutions to change automotive design and production -- TOYOTA Motorsport GmbH names 3D Systems "Additive Manufacturing Machine Provider of Choice"
With its potential to transform the way products are designed, developed, manufactured, and distributed, 3D printing is expected to grow into an $8 billion market for the automotive industry by 2024.
-ExOne to commercialize production of parts 3D printed in aluminum-infiltrated boron carbide -The functional 3D printed material has a wide range of potential applications -ExOne to begin 3D printing collimators and other parts for ORNL in the new material
Our lasers are mainly plug and play for any 3D printer or CNC machine. They work out of 12-24V and have a TTL wire that has to be connected with PWM and then you are pretty much set.
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
