NASA researchers with the Glenn Research Center (GRC) and Marshall Space Flight Center (MSFC) teamed up to develop GRCop-42, a copper-based high strength alloy with high conductivity. Using powder bed fusion (PBF) 3D printing, NASA researchers success…
Additive electronics provider Nano Dimension announced that it has received approval from both the U.S. and Korea Patents and Trademark Offices for the company’s core technology of its dielectric ink.
UK 3D printing filament brand Filamentive announced the release of ONE PET, a 100% recycled plastic filament made from post-consumer PET plastic bottle waste
Adaptive3D, a Dallas, Texas-based premium additive manufacturing polymer resin supplier delivering tough, strain-tolerant and flexible materials
In a collaborative study, researchers from Imperial College London and the University of Sheffield analyzed the lattice structures of 3D printed objects and compared them to the structure of a metallic single crystal. They found that the lattices follo…
Canada-based firm Tekna recently announces that it has made a €5M investment for the production of spherical powders intended for additive manufacturing at its new industrial site in Mâcon, France and shipped the first batches of spherical powders to its clients in November 2018.
Metal additive manufacturing (AM) technology provider Velo3D today announced their partnership with Praxair Surface Technologies, a subsidiary of Praxair and a leading producer of high-performance coatings and materials for the aerospace industry.
The most popular material in 3D printing is PLA (polylactic acid). It’s a bioplastic made from renewable sources like corn starch and sugarcane, and it has excellent 3D printing characteristics (low melting temperature, consistent flow, minimal shrinkage, high rigidity).
Manufacturing with plant-based materials has become increasingly popular in recent years, with PLA (polylactic acid) leading the way in the 3D printing space. But a new entrant may be hitting the market soon: lignin.
Boston-based 3D printer company Markforged announced the launch of H13 tool steel for the desktop-sized Metal X 3D printer. The expansion into H13 will enable customers to print parts in high-strength, high-temperature applications
