Using Sustainable Product Configuration to Enable Customer Choice

Traditionally, when we think about the cost of a product, we're thinking mainly in financial terms. But this isn't the only form of cost. Increasingly, a new measure that's taking on more importance for buyers - and regulators - is the carbon footprint cost.

NREL Enables Affordable Housing by Expanding Beyond Energy Efficiency

When looking at how energy efficiency can lower housing costs, "Utility bills are the easiest target," said NREL engineer Kristin Field-Macumber. "Now we are also looking at advanced manufacturing and making production more efficient."

Micro Molding - Material Selection and Design Concerns

You need to understand the basic design approach and really bottom out what you can and cannot do, as when micro molding, even the smallest design change can be catastrophic and completely derail a project.

How to Use Supports

Most entry-level 3D printers work by extruding material, and while this has lots of cost and safety advantages, it does come with some limitations. Creating a part with extreme overhangs, arches, or angles can be a challenge. Supports make printing these geometries possible.

Manufacturing Impact: Rising Consumption of Entertainment Drives Demand For 3D Animated Content

The augmented demand for the technology from several industrial verticals due to the increasing use of simulation in the design of industrial tools by OEMs has facilitated the penetration of 3D animation solutions worldwide

Why You Should Skip Free DNC Software

The benefits of DNC software when it comes to managing your CNC programs, machine parameters, and offsets are well known. As a result, many businesses look to offer some form of DNC software or their own, ranging from thousands of dollars to absolutely free.

Case Study: Keselowski Advanced Manufacturing (KAM)

Laser Powder Bed Fusion (L-PBF) is central to its production of metal additive manufacturing (AM) parts. In this process, lasers melt and weld layers of metallic powder resulting in parts that are durable and can be polished.

Metal Laser Engraver Portability Benefits for Manufacturing

A Metal Laser Engraver is an essential tool for Automotive Industry and anywhere manufacturing requires Permanent Marking for compliance or enduring harsh processes on Metals. Portable Laser Engraver Marker benefits Manufacturing.

Why Binder Jetting?

Besides being fast and capable of manufacturing complex shapes, binder jetting systems are also incredibly accurate.

Keys to Biocompatible and Hypoallergenic Manufacturing

The materials approved for use in biomedical implants are limited, but as new alloys and polymers emerge, the chances are high that many of them will prove to be biocompatible as well. These will help to shape the future of biomedical manufacturing as a whole.

Evolution of the Need for Expeditionary Manufacturing

There is a demand signal to produce a machine capable of Metal printing on the front lines. Phillips has developed a Hybrid technology that adds a Wire fed Direct Energy Deposition head to a Haas machine.

Waterjet, Oxycut, Plasma or Laser, Which Cutting Technology Should I Use?

There is significant competition in the market between different cutting technologies, whether they are intended for sheet metal, tubes or profiles. There are those that use methods of mechanical cutting by abrasion and others that prefer thermal methods.

Exploring Additive Manufacturing Opportunities: Optimizing Production with Hyundai Lifeboats

The journey to finding success in AM is no simple task. Materialise Mindware, our 3D printing consultancy team, outlined the various steps to steer customers through this journey. Discover how they guided Hyundai Lifeboats through the first phase.

Prestigious 140+ Year Old University Delivers Advanced Engineering and Technical Training With Method X

Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences enriches Additive Design and Manufacturing Courses with MakerBot 3D printers. Students use METHOD X for a range of prototyping applications in research and development, industry thesis projects, and more.

Dynamic Micro-CT: Moving beyond 3D into 4D

In general, dynamic micro-CT is ideal for obtaining much more complete 3D information throughout a process and provides researchers with a lab-based capacity to collect data during testing without discrete interruptions―true in situ testing.
