Senvol granted $100k to ease additive manufacturing materials characterization

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has awarded Senvol, the largest online database of 3D printing systems and materials, a total sum of $99,946 for a project applying data analysis to additive manufacturing processes. The end goal of the project is to develop a tool that will increase the adoption rate of additive […]

U.S. Government lifts ban on Cody Wilson’s 3D printed guns, Senvol joins armaments consortium

In a seismic decision from the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) and U.S. Department of State (DOS), Cody Wilson’s open-source 3D printed firearm file sharing site Defense Distributed is no longer banned from distributing 3D models of guns. In the legal battle it was deemed that the ban was in breach of the First Amendment […]

AMUG 2018 3D Printing Industry preview

Next week 3D Printing Industry will join the leaders, and most importantly the end users, of companies building and applying additive manufacturing technology. The location for the 2018 Additive Manufacturing User Group (AMUG) event is St. Louis, Missouri. Appropriately enough the local airport code is STL. From April 8th to 12th an anticipated 2000 ‘conference’ […]

Senvol machine learning and UVA partnership boosts Navy’s additive drive

In recent years the U.S. Navy has demonstrated its commitment to promoting 3D printing throughout its ranks. 3D printers have been introduced to sea and air maintenance units across the country, and R&D efforts have resulted in Marines projects such as the expeditionary fabrication laboratory (X-FAB), and combat zone drones. Now, the U.S. Navy’s Office of […]

Oak Ridge partners with Senvol for 3D printing data collection project

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), co-developer of the Big Area Additive Manufacturing (BAAM) process and one of America’s leading technological research institutes, has signed a two-year research agreement with the Senvol additive manufacturing database. In the collaboration, ORNL will use Senvol’s Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) to evaluate the best processes for data collection, and apply it […]
