There are a lot of applications of 3D technology. One of the most promising ones is the use of autonomous equipment and 3D printing in construction. Learn more here about the use of these technologies in the construction industry and how they can develop in the coming years.
Desktop Metal Develops New Additive Manufacturing Process for Volume Production of Sustainable, End-Use Wood Parts
Desktop Metal's new Forust additive manufacturing process upcycles wood waste from the approximately 15 billion trees cut down each year1 into luxurious, high-quality, end-use wood parts that can be used in a variety of industries.
Palari Group and Mighty Buildings Announce World's First Community of 3D Printed Zero Net Energy Homes in Rancho Mirage, California
Palari plans to develop the 5-acre parcel into a planned community of 15 eco-friendly homes, built utilizing the 3D-printed panelized Mighty Kit system by Mighty Buildings.
Fraunhofer IGD Develops Automated Robotic Arm to Scan Cultural Objects in 3D, Now Cooperating With Phase One
The Fraunhofer IGD has developed a product to make it easier for museums to digitize their collections and is now cooperating with Danish camera manufacturer Phase One. The mobile scanner CultArm3D delivers precise 3D models of exhibits of various sizes at the push of a button.
3D printing has transformed the world of prototyping, assembly and manufacturing in unprecedented ways. Besides, injection moulding and CNC machining are the basis for most designs that reach the production stage.
ExOne has been awarded a U.S. Department of Defense contract to develop a fully operational, self-contained 3D printing "factory" housed in a shipping container. Now under development.
Overcoming the crisis: COVID-19, the automotive industry and the potential of additive manufacturing
In this feature, Eric Pallar©s, Chief Technology Officer at BCN3D, considers the impact of this tumultuous year on the automotive industry and how additive manufacturing can help.
Unleashing the full benefits of additive manufacturing requires knowledge sharing, but as Lee-Bath Nelson, Co-founder and VP Business at LEO Lane asks, can this be achieved securely without giving away the farm?
Growing demand and a widening industry skills gap have metal fabricators looking for ways to improve efficiency and product quality, even when additional labor may be hard to find.
3D Printing and Printed Materials in 2020: A Challenging Year But Fascinating Times Ahead, Reports IDTechEx
Although the COVID-19 pandemic has interrupted the 3D printing sector and its end users (such as printing bureaus), new directions of travel have nonetheless emerged. Some opportunities have even been directly prompted by the pandemic.
To limit the chances of mill overheating in CNC processes, different manufacturing techniques have been developed to control the heat produced all while limiting costs. This article will present the most important developments in overheating mitigation for CNC milling.
The legacy of 3D printing starts in 2021 with three key trends: going back to the drawing board to rethink manufacturing; enabling the personalization of not only products, but also 3D printers themselves; and creating new solutions, fast.
The discipline starts with the premise that nature has the answers, and that as our scientific understanding advances, so too does our ability to understand more and more that nature has to reveal.
Until now, manufacturers have been dipping their toes and getting familiar with the technology, using it to create prototypes rather than final products. But that is changing. It's only a matter of time before AM makes the leap from prototyping to manufacturing.
DfMM has a massive impact on the tool build; this will therefore have a disproportionate effect on product development time, cost, and indeed the quality of final product.
