Additive manufacturing research review: defects, DfAM, post-processing and CLIP

Carbon‘s Continuous Liquid Interface Production (CLIP) 3D printed parts are put to the test. Design for Additive Manfuacturing (DfAM) training is explored at ETH Zürich. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) examines the effect of defects on the surface of 3D printed components. And Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL) researchers investigate the potential […]

Day Two of 3D printing at IMTS, smart factories and preparing for serial production

Self-driving 3D printed vehicles, beer-pouring robots, robots 3D printing, whirlyball playing robots – ok I made that last one up but automation – together with additive manufacturing – is clearly a dominant theme at IMTS 2018. 3D printing and automation Automation is self-evidently a technology that does not stand in isolation – there must be […]
