Longest 3D printed part Guinness Book World Record set by Made In Space

At 37.7 meters (123 ft, 8.25 inches) long, a beam 3D printed by Made In Space has made it into the Guinness Book of World Records as the “longest 3D printed non-assembled piece.” The beam, which runs the length of the Moffett Field facility at NASA’s Ames Research Center, serves as a demonstration of the scale that may one […]

Micro-Extruder von TWWormer für Forschungszwecke

TWWormer & Associates hat einen Micro-Extruder für Forschungszwecke entwickelt. Konkret sollen damit Kunststoffe zu Forschungszwecken extrudiert werden. Das soll die Entwicklung von neuen 3D-Druckmaterialien beschleunigen. Ein Extruder hat die Aufgabe, Kunststoffteile zu schmelzen und daraus einen Strang herzustellen. Diesen Strang nennen wir dann gerne Filament und verwenden es zum FDM 3D-Druck. Um neue Materialien zu […]
