UL and Tooling U-SME Finalize Partnership on Additive Manufacturing Professional Certification Programs
This formal agreement follows the successful pilot of the Additive Manufacturing Fundamentals Certification program at two of the industry's leading additive manufacturing and 3D printing events
RAPID + TCT 2018 took place in Fort Wort, TX April 24th - 26th. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
While the entire fabrication industry is busy integrating IoT with their machines for data, machine to machine communication and intelligible foresight, let us not forget the place of origin for fabrication - concept designing and modeling in CAD
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 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.
FABTECH 2017 will be held from November 6th - 9th in Chicago, Illinois. This ManufacturingTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
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.
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.
Nell Walker for Manufacturing Global: Using laser ultrasound rather than camera imaging, it is hoped that Dutton's work could encourage the use of 3D printing within mass manufacturing industries, as it removes the need for a separate inspection process.
Computer scientists design flat sheets that transform themselves into smooth-surfaced, free-form objects
Phys.org: CurveUps are flat materials that transform themselves through material forces into the desired 3-D object.
Julian Mitchell for Forbes: LAYR is a cloud-based, end-to-end 3D printing software that makes creating and printing 3D objects easy and efficient.
Candice Majewski for Independent: Members of the team behind the Electron rocket at US company RocketLab say the engine was printed in 24 hours and provides efficiency and performance benefits over other systems.
Scott Kirsner for Boston Globe: The revolution is about three things: more advanced software for designing things; devices like 3-D printers that can quickly crank out a prototype; and robots and other technologies that will make the factory floor more efficient and flexible.
Sarat Babu for The Engineer: If we're going to unlock the full potential of 3D printing we'll need to fundamentally rethink the design process, writes Sarat Babu, founder of Betatype.
After a developing period of 1.5 years 3D Ninja, the largest reseller of 3D printers in The Netherlands, officially launches http://www.ifind3d.com, the world's largest search engine for 3D printable models, containing 740.029 designs.
