For over 30 years, Automated Dynamics has worked with customers to create innovative composite structures using high-performance automation equipment, meeting some of the biggest manufacturing demands in the aerospace, automotive, defense, and petroleum industries. Working with Stratasys FDM-based (Fused Deposition Modeling) 3D Printing, the team used a 3D printed soluble core application to deliver a robust composite prototype of a helicopter blade, in the process saving 60-70% in tooling costs
Stratasys announced an interesting joint marketing partnership in North America with Creaform, which manufactures… Read the whole entry…
When it comes to creating surfaces, it’s a simple task to either make ones that are smooth or ones that are bumpy. But now researchers at MIT have created one that can be both. The 3D-printed surface they have created can be either smooth, bumpy, ridged, or channeled and can dynamically change texture through the application of pressure.
The journey required in taking an idea from conception to finished product is a very long process. Finding the idea is generally the easiest part.
European researchers have come up with a method to 3D print in metal using tiny drops of copper and gold with the help of a laser. The ability to print more structures that better conduct heat and electricity could lead to entirely new devices and components being created. .
Most source of 3D content for 3D printing simply sell you a 3D model, but that’s not 3DFilemarket’s strategy…. Read the whole entry…

Willy Wong is a designer and creative director who teaches at the School of Visual Arts and the Parsons School of Design . This spring, Wong taught a collaborative studio, a course in which Parsons students work with industry partners to solve real-world problems. In Wong’s studio, students developed tourism projects celebrating Paterson, NJ, once a proud center of American manufacturing.
“Wait, you guys can print in ceramics ?” – That’s a typical reaction when we show ceramic 3D prints at fairs and exhibitions. Printing objects in ceramics is an exciting technological process – and we want to shed some light on how it works. 3D printed ‘TomyTones Selfie’ in ceramics by Tommy Rombauts The Material: It’s All Based on Ceramic Powder When people hear the words ‘3D printing’, they often think of plastic filaments
