Additive Manufacturing Creates New Opportunities for Metalformers

Additive Manufacturing Creates New Opportunities for Metalformers | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"At that point, metalformers and other manufacturers can perform return-on-investment and amortization calculations while taking additive manufacturing into account. When an order arrives for a diverse part family, concern with tooling up for multiple jobs won’t necessarily take a metalformer out of the bid process. Beyond that, as the accompanying sidebars illustrate, additive manufacturing can provide solutions for a host of shop-floor challenges."

3D Printing Clothes At Home Could Be A Reality By 2050

3D Printing Clothes At Home Could Be A Reality By 2050 | Digital Design and Manufacturing | Scoop.it

"That’s why Joshua Harris’ clothes printer has gained so much traction recently. His idea centers around the concept of feeding your old clothes into his machine, you can then use that material to instantly print the next outfit you’ve had your eye on.

With 3D printing becoming so much more advanced, you may also be able to purchase cartridges of material from your favorite brand such as Nike, insert it into the machine and print out this season’s hottest item."

Michael Dunham's curator insight, March 22, 2013 11:54 AM

If you look at the diference in technology from 1976 to today (same 37 year span) it's not that crazy of a claim.  I'm sure there will be LOTS of tech 40 years from now that will seem like magic.  Not sure we''ll see the small size the renderings suggest, but I could see paper-based clothing (one time disposable wear) being able to be printed within the next 10 years if there was a demand for it.

Stratasys 3D Printed Model using FDM and Inkjet Technologies!

"This card and pen holder was created to illustrate the range of possibilities using Stratasys' different 3D printing technologies. One half of the model is created using FDM technology in ABSi material - strong, light, durable and suitable for real production requirements. The second part is created using Inkjet multi-material jetting technology which deposits 2 photopolymer-based materials at the same time and mimics the precise look and feel of more complex end products. This part features extremely smooth surfaces, fine details and embedded writing in a separate material. Together, using both FDM and Inkjet technology, designers and manufacturers can cover the entire gamut of Fit, Form and Functional Prototyping and Rapid Manufacturing requirements!"

Microscale 3D printing of a spaceship

"This video shows a realtime recording of the 3D micro printing process by two-photon polymerization. We start with the CAD model of a Hellcat spaceship from Wing Commander Saga and use our 3D printer Photonic Professional GT to print a polymer model on the microscale. The final structure is then inspected with a scanning electron microscope (SEM). Overall printing time was less than 50 seconds for the ship with dimensions 125µm x 81µm x 26.8µm (l x w x h). The length of the spaceship is approximately equal to the diameter of a human hair."
