3D printed composite parts with support of ESA
Zortrax has announced that with the support of the European Space Agency (ESA) it is working to develop a technology that enables 3D printing high-performance composite parts out of two blends of PEEK filament in dual extrusion on Zortrax Endureal industrial 3D printer. The first prototype composite parts made out of standard PEEK and experimental electrically conductive PEEK developed by ESA have been successfully fabricated on the Zortrax Endur...
3D printing market poised to garner maximum revenues
Demand of 3D printing in the medical industry for manufacturing of personalised medical implants and prostheses, as well as mass production without high cost with specified design in aerospace industry, will boost the 3D Printing market in upcoming years. Moreover, the major factor driving the market growth is the growing use of 3D printing in rapid prototyping, or real-time prototyping which benefits the whole design and production process, ulti...
3D printing poses a growing threat to people’s privacy
3D printing technology poses a 'grave and growing threat' to individual privacy because of the potential for products to reveal private information about individuals, experts have warned. People could use cameras, laptops or mobile phones to track and trace the origins of 3D printed objects and how they have been used if they have watermarks.
Mouser adds 3D printer maker to line card
Mouser Electronics has signed a global distribution agreement with SynDaver, an advanced bio-technology company.
3D Metalforge and Ultimaker to launch FFF print facility
Ultimaker and 3D Metalforge have announced their partnership and launch of Southeast Asia's largest industrial FFF printing facility. The new facility will offer industrial-grade, fused filament fabrication (FFF) 3D printing from Ultimaker's professional S-Line 3D printers, providing a complete ecosystem of certified 24/7 printers, engineering materials, 3D print fleet management and 3D print preparation software.
Workflow for 3D printing collaboration from anywhere
MakerBot has announces the new MakerBot CloudPrint software, designed to provide a 3D printing workflow for teams to collaborate around the world. With more people working remotely, there is a greater need for teams to manage their 3D printers and print jobs from anywhere.
Stratasys F900 3D Printers for aerospace application
In what is one of its largest single orders to date, Stratasys, has announced that Latvia-based specialist aerospace additive manufacturing service provider, AM Craft, has purchased four large-scale production-grade Stratasys F900 3D Printers to provide certifiable 3D printed parts for a much wider range of aircraft interior applications.
3D printers help cut costs at BAE Systems
BAE Systems has added a fourth Stratasys F900 3D Printer to its manufacturing site in Samlesbury, UK, in a continued effort to reduce costs and improve production agility.
UK is named European hub for innovation in 3D printing
A new study from the European Patent Office (EPO) has revealed the United Kingdom as a leading European country in Additive Manufacturing (AM) innovation, also known as 3D printing. The United Kingdom accounts for 5% of AM patent applications at the European Patent Office (EPO), putting it in second place behind Germany with 19%. European patent applications for AM increased at an average annual rate of 36% from 2015 to 2018.
3D printer accelerates product design, cuts costs
Time to market and costs weigh heavily on the minds of design engineers and industrial designers. To accelerate product development Stratasys has introduced the J55 3D Printer to create fast, full-colour design realism at about a third of the price of enterprise-class PolyJet printers, and in a smaller format so it sits comfortably in offices, design studios or classrooms.
