Very nice, but I have serious regards as how to evaluate or predict shrinkage and internal tensions during oven firing in highly complex structures
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.

This one is really great. We've had it in front of us for a little more than 200 years since the invention of the sewing machine and it's only now it comes out.
I warned readers last week about the worst case scenario pricing of 3D Systems (DDD) that could drive the share price down to $35. And as we approach the end of April, we should see higher volatility, since 3D Systems is expe

"Implants used to be made by hand in the operating theatre using a sort of cement which was far from ideal,’ Verweij said. “Using 3D printing we can make one to the exact size. This not only has great cosmetic advantages, but patients’ brain function often recovers better than using the old method.”
The 23 hour operation was performed by neurologist Bon Verweij, surgeon Marvick Muradin, and their highly skilled team.
Watching the picture I took for granted that it was some stereolithography material out of an Additive Manufacturing machine. My fault for that.
Going deeper into the story I found no evidence of the use of Additive technology to manufacture the implant. Apparently it has gone through the everyday routine of:
* CAT and computer 3D model
* Some design
* Stereolithography for a 3D model
* Using the model as a Master to produce a silicone rubber (or other materials) mould
* Casting or injecting some liquid PMMA
So apparently this is not such a "FIRST IN THE WORLD"

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.
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers have developed a new and more efficient approach to determine the right parameters in selective laser melting (SLM), an additive manufacturing process to print 3-D high-density metal parts.
A 3D printer gives a 71-year-old woman the ability to walk unassisted following a "game-changing" procedure.
Although for us this an everyday job, this time the case includes stem cells from the patient to be seeded to increase the chance of bone growing into the implant.

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.
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?
