voxeljet unveils new 3D printing process: High Speed Sintering for production of end-use parts

voxeljet AG, a provider of high-speed, large-format 3D printers and on-demand parts services today announced the release of its first 3D printing system based on its new High Speed Sintering (HSS) process. So far, the company’s 3D printers have been used mainly for tooling and pattern making applications, but with HSS voxeljet will be entering the thermoplastics market with the ability to directly manufacture end-use products.

Research project led by DOE's Argonne National Laboratory investigates structural defects in 3D printed parts

3D printing technology is being adopted as a manufacturing technique by more and more industries, and it continues to improve in terms of reliability, but like any method, it’s still not without its flaws. There’s still much more detail to be discovered about how the 3D printing process can go wrong, and a group of researchers led by the U.S Department of Energy have recently been looking into this.
