Will 3D printers go home?

Will 3D printers go home? | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Leslie Langnau of Make Parts Fast weighs in on the debate of home use of 3D printers.

"So my question is, if professional engineers are not rushing to buy the latest 3D printers in record numbers, why would the average person buy one? (Because it’s so cool, while true, is not an answer.)
I think the real issue with professional users is the lack of materials that simulate the specifications engineers’ need/want for their designs. And I think materials will inhibit home use as well, in terms of cost, availability, performance, and environment."

 

Short and rightful opinion from my point of view

ARCAM buys customer DISANTO, gains position in 3D PRINTING implants

ARCAM buys customer DISANTO, gains position in 3D PRINTING implants | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Last year, Arcam’s shares soared a 530% thanks to the hype in 3D printing trending topic (http://3dprinting-stocks.com/swedens-arcam-share-price-has-soared-530-in-the-past-year/). DiSanto Technology, founded in 1967 had bought 2 Arcam machines, and last year generated $12 million in revenue. Arcam acquired DiSanto Technology in a $15.8 million cash deal.

SpaceX Launches Additive Manufatured Part to Space, Creates Engine Chamber for Crewed Spaceflight

SpaceX Launches Additive Manufatured Part to Space, Creates Engine Chamber for Crewed Spaceflight | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Through 3D printing, or additive manufacturing, robust and high-performing rocket parts can be created and offer improvements over traditional manufacturing methods. SpaceX is pushing the boundaries of what additive manufacturing can do in the 21st century, ultimately making the Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft more reliable, robust and efficient than ever before.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Very nice part. I guess it has "secret" cooling chambers inside. This could be manufactured in one thanks to the new EOS M400. Inconel produces great results with EOSINT machines.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

I really love this one: old mechanical things, no electronics, no sensors, just pure old mechanical. Maybe I would just a steampunk style and a steam generator, a bit of copper here and there, just to make it industrial.

Enjoy watching.

The USS Essex Warship Is Taking 3D Printer To Sea permanently installed.

The USS Essex Warship Is Taking 3D Printer To Sea permanently installed. | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

WASHINGTON: The U.S. Navy has put a 3D printer on a warship for the first time. That’s a small revolution but don’t expect world-changing results any time soon. 

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Would they install huge guns but no ammunition transfer systems, rendering them useless?

Why don't they install the rest of the processes to make "tensile" reach the desired point, i.e. HIP machines?

Why are they mixing AM and 3DP all the time?

TRUMPF is back in AM!!

TRUMPF is back in AM!! | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

TRUMPF entered the additive manufacturing sector as a pioneer back in the year 2000. The “TrumaForm” – a universal tool for the generative manufacturing of metallic materials – was, however, years ahead of its time because the market for serial production of components had not yet developed. At the start of this year TRUMPF entered the additive manufacturing business once again, and is now benefiting from the results of earlier development work as well as from its ever increasing expertise in the related process of laser deposition welding, which is already being used today in all kinds of sectors for repair and coating applications.
