Singularity University Cape Town Chapter in collaboration with KATO invites you to the Future of Manufacturing. Learn how exponential technologies are disrupting and democratising global manufacturing making it possible for anyone, anywhere to be a maker and builder of hardware.
John Goode from 3D Platform explains how you can optimise print speed, print strength and printing costs. As highlighted at RAPID + TCT 2017: 3D Platform launched a new line of High Flow Extruders that change the rules of additive manufacturing. Get stronger, high-fidelity prints at 16x faster rates and lower costs. If you want finish, fast and strong in
Robotic 3D Printing Makes Sand Molds and Cores Innovative, “first-ever” robotic additive manufacturing technology is an ideal solution for making sand molds and cores for foundry applications. EnvisionTEC’s exclusive strategic partner, Viridis3D sells complete systems of materials, 3D printing machines, robots, software, and the training needed to successfully deploy functional solutions for metal casting, ceramics, and composites applications. Watch this
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.
