NVBots Sold to Ohio Manufacturer as 3D Printing Interest Grows

Jeff Engel for Xconomy: NVBots was founded by MIT students who were frustrated that the 3D printers they were using lacked capabilities for remotely collaborating on the design of parts and for controlling the printer.

New design gives 3D printers a 10x speed boost

Rich Haridy for New Atlas: What previously took over an hour to print could now be created in just minutes thanks to a new 3D printer design from engineers at MIT

VTT: Five percent of spare parts could currently be stored in digital warehouses.

VTT Research: This would make parts more quickly and easily available, while creating considerable cost savings. Digitalisation will also enable individual customisation and an increase in the intelligence of parts.

Can US Boost Manufacturing 25% By 2025?

Industry Week: A new McKinsey report predicts that manufacturing GDP would climb to $3 trillion in real terms by 2025-a boost of some $530 billion, or 20%, above the current trend.

3D Printer Farms And Robotics Start Pointing To Future Of Manufacturing

TJ McCue for Forbes: Many relatively small companies are providing printers and software for these new 3D print clusters, or farms, as many call them.

3D Systems outlines additive manufacturing strategy, aims for turnaround

Larry Dignan for ZDNet: 3D Systems rolled out a series of systems, software and services aimed at targeting industries. Going vertical is key to the company's turnaround hopes.

3D printing doubles the strength of stainless steel

Robert F. Service for ScienceMag: Now, researchers have come up with a way to 3D print tough and flexible stainless steel, an advance that could lead to faster and cheaper ways to make everything from rocket engines to parts for nuclear reactors and oil rigs.

Adidas is using robots to produce small-batch, local-market shoes

Greg Nichols for ZDNet: It's an early step in a bold experiment by a global retailer to use time-saving robots to design small-batch collections, a departure from the mass production methods employed by global shoe and apparel brands.

Makerbot Labs Is One Step Toward Open Source 3D Printing

Darren Orf for Popular Mechanics: Makerbot describes this new platform as a place, built for creators, who want to experiment with 3D printing but still have the bedrock of the platform to fall back on if need be.

DowDuPont's Andrew Liveris: How America Can Bring Back Manufacturing

From Knowledge@Wharton: Manufacturing accounts for about 13% of the U.S. economy. Should we even focus on trying to "bring it back," now that information and services - the "knowledge economy" - seems a more promising path?

Capgemini: Smart factories could add $1.5trn to global economy

Jonathan Dyble for Manufacturing Global: In its latest report, multinational consultancy firm Capgemini predicts that smart factories are set to become revolutionary within the manufacturing industry.

GE Healthcare opens its European 3D printing and design centre

Science Business: The centre combines advanced manufacturing technology, such as metal and polymer printers and collaborative robots, with traditional machining equipment.

Apple Wins a Patent for a Future 3D Printing System that works with Augmented Reality and AR Glasses

Patently Apple: Apple notes that there's a need for further applications of a 3D printer, such as extending an existing real object through printing additional objects onto a surface of the existing object by using a 3D printer.

T3D Smartphone 3D Printer Successfully Funded on Kickstarter

Michael Molitch-Hou for Engineering.com: Similar to digital light processing (DLP), layered slices are projected from the phone onto a vat of resin. The print bed is gradually lifted out of the vat with each flash of light until a complete object is revealed.

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

Bitflow is the leader in CoaXPress

With the introduction of its Cyton and Karbon CXP frame grabbers, BitFlow has established itself as the leader in CoaXPress (CXP), a simple, yet powerful, standard for moving high speed serial data from a camera to a frame grabber. With CXP, video is captured at speeds of up to 6.25 Gigabits/Second (Gb/S). Simultaneously, control commands and triggers can be sent to the camera 20 Mb/S (with a trigger accuracy of +/- 2 nanoseconds). Up to 13 W of power can also supplied to the camera. All this happens over a single piece of industry standard 75 Ohm coaxial cable. Multiple CXP links can be aggregated to support higher data rates (e.g. four links provide 25 Gb/S of data). BitFlow CXP frame grabbers open the door to applications where cable cost, routing requirements and long distances have prevented the move to high resolution, high speed digital cameras. In many cases, existing coaxial infrastructure can be repurposed for CXP with very low installation costs.
