Adding Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) 3D Printing technology to your standard product development process could save you up to $50K (USD) a year. How is this possible? Tim Carraher, lead engineer at U.S. Architectural in California, USA, explains how his team approached new designs prior to bringing a 3D printer in house: “With our old process of product development, we
RAPDASA 2017 is approaching fast. One of the events for this year’s 18th annual conference, is South Africa’s biggest 3D Print Design Competition with great prizes to be won. Get your entry in before the 1 Oct 2017 closing date.
This advanced engineering-grade material is a polyurethane-like material that produces a final material with a soft Shore A value in the 40-50 range. E-Shore A is a material developed for end-use applications such as footwear, sporting goods, and other uses requiring durability, comfort and flexibility.
3D print a casting tree, with high detail jewellery pieces in as little as 3 hours using EnvisionTEC’s high speed, patented cDLM 3D printing technology.
Individualize, Integrate, Innovate: The 3i-PRINT partnership project has used the front-end structure of a classic VW Caddy to demonstrate the full potential of industrial 3D printing within the automotive industry. The structure is very light, stable, and, at the same time, features a high degree of functional integration. Altair, APWORKS, csi entwicklungstechnik, EOS, GERG, and Heraeus covered every development step
About 70% of the cost of metal Additive Manufacturing is related to pre- and post-processing. Designing for AM is key to success. See a desktop distilling still project designed with no support structures.
Alex Crease talks about how, in the past few years, the 3D printing industry has expanded as professional 3D printing companies are offering manufacturing solutions for businesses. These solutions eliminate wait times, increase CNC bandwidth, and unleash innovation on the production floor using CFF routing technology.
Daimler EvoBus is revolutionising their entire value chain management by introducing 3D printing for spare parts. With 3D printed parts for buses Daimler EvoBus no longer needs to store the part in question and avoids unnecessary excess production.
The 3DP Workbench is the first 3D printer to feature an actual full, built-in workbench. The large-format printer is mounted on an industrial workbench with 12 built-in drawers and cabinets for storage of tools and supplies. The whole thing is very portable – it has wheels for easy transport, and the printer has a folding gantry system so that it can easily fit through single standard doors.
