Materialise Acquires Leading Polish Prototyping Center, e-Prototypy

Materialise Acquires Leading Polish Prototyping Center, e-Prototypy | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

e-Prototypy offers a broad range of 3D printing solutions, with a specialization in the production of laser sintered components, and has invested in scanning and reverse engineering services in recent years.


Materialise is leader in software for AM as well as as leader as a services provider. Buying other services companies makes them even worse competitors for their software customers. It is like 3D systems buying service providers and destroying their market for machines.

Next Generation 3D Printer: direct silicone

Next Generation 3D Printer: direct silicone | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

Picsima is the next generation 3D Printer, currently under development by UK based Fripp Design and Research.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

The idea for 3D Printing silicone directly came as a result of a technical challenge in 3D Printing soft tissue prostheses. The current method is a two stage process which involves 3D printing a colour scaffold (using 3D Systems ZCorp technology) which is post processed by infiltrating with medical grade silicone under pressure. Although the prostheses are, visually, stunning; when they are flexed the scaffold material delaminates from the silicone demonstrating 'crazing' lines. This was the motivator for wanting to 3D Print silicone directly.

Lady Gaga Goes Gaga Over 3D Printing

Lady Gaga Goes Gaga Over 3D Printing | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
3D Printing has a new enthusiast: Lady Gaga. But then, given the pop star’s penchant for pushing the boundaries of fashion, it was only natural that she should be drawn to 3D printing, a technology that is reimagining the possibilities of fashion.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Obviously I wouldn't have expected her to be an AM ambassador. But anyway, every way to raise awareness is welcome.

Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, January 10, 12:53 AM

Read this article from  Peter Way 

http://3dprintingtimes.com/3d-systems-ces/#!


"3D Systems is talking about complete solutions, not hardware.  They are positioning and branding a range of products for specific customer segments.  They talk of what customers can do with the products —  the valuable output, and why they should be appealing rather than speeds and feeds.  This is likely to bring them success in areas where customers actually agree.  Products are being presented with the software and input devices that are needed to make the process of printing easy.  Naturally, it is too early to tell how well it will all work together, but ease of use is extremely important in getting end-user adoption."


Andy Jeffrey (06:44)  presents the ceramic printing as a new 3DS product, formerly by FIGULO.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

That price tag (500.000) demonstrates two things. The first is that machine-tool makers are beginning to recognise 3D printing is going to be important in the factory of the future, not just for making models and prototypes (as is already happening) but also finished goods. The second is that additive manufacturing can complement subtractive manufacturing, as well as compete with it. If it work—and sells—the Lasertec could be the first of many such hybrids.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

GARTNER:

"3D bioprinting facilities with the ability to print human organs and tissue will advance far faster than general understanding and acceptance of the ramifications of this technology," Gartner Research Director Pete Basiliere said.

 

Dr. Stuart Williams, who is leading the effort to bioprint a human heart at CII, doesn't foresee any sort of extended ban on the horizon:

"It reminds me of the 50s when people had concerns about the polio vaccine," he said. "You know, people had concerns about the polio vaccine, but it worked. As long as this product works as well as expected, the patients will demand it."

Carlos Garcia Pando's curator insight, February 10, 3:00 PM

Meaning the printing would take place directly onto existing bone or damaged cartilage, in open air, under anesthesia. I don't see it as a close future application, although printing hip or knee cartilage on demand and then placing them in the patients body should be possible.

Everything 3D Systems Does Not Want You To Know About Their Business

Everything 3D Systems Does Not Want You To Know About Their Business | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

Citron presents an irrefutable financial model that explains how unsupportable DDD’s current stock price is, to any analyst, CFO, or shareholder.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Note that despite management’s obvious stream of hype, there are three topics the magician never brings up, because anything he’d say would be an obvious lie.

1) Never claims superior technology
2) Never discusses competition in a realistic way. The illusion really breaks down if this topic comes up.
3) Never acknowledges that 3D Systems’ consumer initiative is failing miserably.

 

With Avi as the frontman for 3D Systems, he wants you to think that he is the true expert in the industry. But the actual one -Terry Wohlers- said:

“However, a significant number of machines bought by hobbyists are also sitting idle. They generally print out a part or two and forget about it.”

3D PRINTED METAL PART FLOWN FOR FIRST TIME ON UK FIGHTER JET

3D PRINTED METAL PART FLOWN FOR FIRST TIME ON UK FIGHTER JET | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it

A 3D metal camera bracket was successfully flown from our airfield at Warton in Lancashire. 

BAE SYSTEMS say they have engineers designing and producing 3D printed plastic functional components at RAF Marham to support the aircraft when it is being maintained on the ground.  These parts include protective covers for Tornado cockpit radios, support struts on the air intake door and protective guards for Power Take-off shafts.  Use of these parts will cut the cost of repairs, maintenance and service to the Royal Air Force to the tune of more than £1.2 million over the next four years.

Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

Well, a metal camera bracket may not seem a significant or interesting but -as they say- it paves the way for other parts. Everyting in a plane has an importance if it breaks: it can damage other components or the pilot.

D-Shaping New York's Shoreline

D-Shaping New York's Shoreline | Additive Manufacturing News | Scoop.it
The infrastructure of New York's shoreline is in bad shape and 3D printing company D-Shape is ready to take on the job of repairing it.
Carlos Garcia Pando's insight:

All told, the D-Shape plan is expected to save the city around $2.9 billion dollars.

 

The process will begin with a 3D scan of each damaged piling.  Then, the D-Shape team will work with the physics of the problem.  They will use a generative algorithm to design something like a customized concrete Band-Aid that wraps around the pilings to shore them up.

Once they have the design down, the supports will be printed using the D-Shape 3D printer.  After printing, the concrete supports will be floated out and installed.  D-Shape also has plans to work with local artists to give the supports a bit of visual appeal.
