THIS NEW TECHNOLOGY - Analogue 3D printer

3d printing allows me to create products more swiftly and more efficiently than ever. but these products are not mine. they are merely a product of this new technology.…
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?

Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, March 26, 8:52 AM

The 23 hour operation was performed by neurologist Bon Verweij, surgeon Marvick Muradin, and their highly skilled team.

Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, March 31, 2:02 AM

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"

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.
