How 3D Printing Is Changing the World
In this blog, Knight Optical, the leading supplier of optical components for a wide range of industries (including the 3D printing sector), runs through the most impressive innovations in the world of 3D printing
Top Article from 2019 - Can a 3D Printer Build a Rocket?
NASA has successfully tested its first rocket engine component made through 3D printing. The 3D printed component produced a breathtaking 20,000 pounds of thrust.
What is MXT? (Metering Extruder Technology)
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.
Specialty Materials for 3D Printing
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.
Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) Safe Materials for 3D Printing
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
New 3D Printing Material Builds Extra-Strength Parts
The materials have a non-uniform, crystalline structure, making components built with them much stronger than those built using a standard uniform lattice structure. So much stronger, in fact, that they can withstand seven times the amount of energy ...
Who's Afraid of the Big Tall Build?
Metal AM gives engineers the opportunity to design higher performance parts with a much simpler manufacturing workflow than traditional manufacturing (think: rocket engines).But, in many cases, taller and larger parts will be no-bid or priced too high for the market.
Thermoplastic Extrusion 3D Printing
This new technology makes it possible to print five times faster - with greater precision and quality - than current extrusion speeds. MXT® establishes a clear separation between filament feeding and melting and molten extrusion...
KeraCel, a World Leader in Solid-state Lithium Ion Batteries, Announced a Breakthrough in its Multi-material Ceramic Battery Using its Proprietary 3D Printing Technology
KeraCel is developing its ceramic solid-state batteries using proprietary additive manufacturing 3D printing technology resulting in unique monolithic structure. The unique structure allows for greatly increasing battery energy density, and producing safer and longer lasting
3D-Printing File Formats Must Evolve with the Industry
One of the first trends driving change is 3D printings transition from prototyping to commercial-grade production, combined with the increasing popularity of metal as a printing material.
Philips' Lightbulb Moment: 3D Printing Becomes Essential Production Thinking
The collaboration has already resulted in the 'reinvention of a lamp holder previously prone to part failure, and the automation of a previously labor intensive line using lightweight design.
Top Five Teams Win a Share of $100,000 in Virtual Modeling Stage of NASA's 3D-Printed Habitat Competition
Winning teams successfully created digital representations of the physical and functional characteristics of a house on Mars using specialized software tools.
New Story and ICON Unveil First Permitted 3D-Printed Home Created for the Developing World
3D Printing Technologies Set to Transform Global Homelessness with 600-800 Square Foot Homes Printed in Under 24 Hours for $4000 in Underserved Communities
TSN in my Network: Why, What and How?
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) offers network convergence and will enable effective implementations of Industrial Internet-of-the-Things set-ups.
3D-printed objects change color on demand
Ben Coxworth for New Atlas: When items are printed using the new technology, they're made up of voxels that incorporate either red, yellow or blue light-sensitive dye. All of the voxels take on their colors when the object is exposed to ultraviolet light.

NORD's New Line of Small CLINCHERTM Parallel Shaft Gear Units Provide More Power, Flexibility, and Reliability
NORD's redesigned line of small CLINCHER parallel gear units showcase increased power and torque capacity for a variety of applications. These re-engineered versions will be replacing the existing SK0182NB, 0282NB, and 1382NB units. They are lightweight, have improved heat dissipation, are more cost-effective, and are available with NORD nsd tupHTM sealed surface conversion for wash-down and extreme environments.
