Boeing collaborates with Assembrix to secure 3D printing

3D printing is a hotbed of intellectual property (IP) and, as a number of projects have proved, its protection can be just as lucrative as the innovation. In the aerospace industry especially, where competition runs high and products remain in development for a number of years, IP protection is a primary concern. In a new Memorandum of […]

Rize intros Digitally Augmented Parts to counter 3D printed piracy and counterfeits

Boston, U.S. based 3D printer manufacturer Rize Inc., has introduced what they are calling the first 3D printed Digitally Augmented Parts (DAP). According to Rize, DAPs will enable the creation of “functional 3D printed parts with digital information” using Rize’s patented Augmented Polymer Deposition (APD) method to embed markers, such as QR codes, on plastic […]

iPhone X Face ID security software apparently tricked by 3D printed mask

When the iPhone X was announced in September 2017, Apple showed off its Face ID feature that relies on facial recognition to unlock the screen. At the time, Apple’s senior VP of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, stated that “professional mask makers and makeup artists in Hollywood” had helped to “train the neural networks” of Face ID, […]

Keeping Nuclear Weapons Secure with 3D Printing at the National Security Campus

By Tyler Koslow

Regardless of your stance on nuclear weapons and energy, one thing we can probably all agree on is that this powerful and hazardous technology must be kept extremely secure. In order, to accomplish this goal of security in the United States by the Department of Energy, the Kansas City-based National Security Campus, managed by Honeywell, is constantly working to manufacture non-nuclear components with the goal of reducing the nuclear stockpile of the U.S. For numerous years already, the Kansas City plant has been utilizing multiple methods of 3D technologies, such as topology optimization, in order to design and produce these non-nuclear components.…
