3D Printing in the automotive industry

3D printing technology was appealing proposition for the automotive industry at an early stage and additive manufacturing is increasing used in the sector. The 2015 Wohlers report states that the motor vehicles constituted 16.1% of the 3D printing market that year. The recent advances in additive manufacturing, allowing for newer designs, reduced lead times, and […]

3D printing news Sliced, NASA, EOS, Kodak and Materialise

Which country celebrated a century of freedom by sending a 3D printed gnome into space? How did one grandfather raise thousands to help his local school buy a 3D printer? How did 3D printing change one rescued dog’s life forever? This edition of 3D printing news sliced features updates from Kodak, Zortrax, Octobre71, Sculpteo, Bhartiya […]

MTC calls for contributions to stem additive manufacturing skills shortage

The UK’s Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) is where 3D printing and traditional manufacturing converge. Established as an independent Research & Technology Organisation (RTO) in 2010, the centre is the product of a collaboration between Loughborough University, the University of Birmingham, the University of Nottingham and TWI. The centre’s privileged position in the market and well-cultivated contact […]

Mass production – is 3D printing up to the supply-chain challenge?

Trends in additive manufacturing for end-use production was a recent in-depth look at what some see as the the next phase of 3D printing. 3D printed sneakers, custom-fit insoles, clothing and toys  – commercial 3D printing – are often the subject of hype surrounding 3D printing’s integration into the supply chain. There are many big […]

Yale journal looks at impact of 3D printing on health and environment

A special edition of the “Journal of Industrial Ecology,” a peer-reviewed scientific journal produced by the Center for Industrial Ecology (CIE) at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES), has looked at the environmental, energy and health impacts of additive manufacturing. Entitled “Environmental Dimensions of Additive Manufacturing and 3D Printing,” the November 2017 […]

CfAM publishes breakthrough Multifunctional AM method for electronics

Multifunctional Additive Manufacturing (MFAM) champions the development of single step 3D printing using multiple materials. Due to its nature, MFAM is ideally suited to the fabrication of electronic components, as they typically require step by step assembly of conductive and non-conductive parts. Researchers at the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Additive Manufacturing (CfAM) are leading […]

Nottigham’s 3D printed helmet ushers in a new era of natural brain scans

A £1.6 million collaborative project between scientists at the University of Nottingham and University College London (UCL) is looking to improve the way we map the human brain. Focusing on the development of magnetoencephalography (MEG), researchers have 3D printed a prototype helmet that may yield quadruple the sensitivity of current MEG devices. Reading at room […]

Can 3D printed nanocellulose transform the food industry?

Developed in the late 1970s at the ITT Rayonier labs in Whippany, New Jersey, nanocellulose, is a fibrous, fibrillated or crystalline form of cellulose – the primary building block in the cell walls of green plants. As a material, nanocellulose is heralded as a natural reinforcement in material fabrication, and is commercially used as a low-calorie thickener, flavour […]

Britische Forscher entwickeln neuen Algorithmus zur Umwandlung von 2D-Bildern in 3D-Modelle

Forscher der Britischen University of Nottingham sowie der Kingston University entwickelten einen neuen Algorithmus basierend auf einer künstlichen Intelligenz, welcher 2D-Fotos durch die Verwendung eines Faltungs-Neuralen Netzwerks in relativ detaillierte 3D-Modelle umwandeln kann. Um zweidimensionale Bilder in 3D-Modelle verwandeln zu können, kamen bisher 3D-Scanning- oder Photogrammetrie-Technologien zum Einsatz. Diese sind in der Lage Fotos des […]
