Ever Heard a Singing 3D Printed Head?
Australian alt-rock singer Dan Sultan just released his latest single, "Magnetic" accompanied by a stop-motion film of a 3D printed bust of the singer.
Stop-motion animation is always time consuming: two months in the making, over 60 individual 3D printed pieces and over 2700 photos. Watch the video here under.
Peugeot-Citroën signs Partnership with Divergent3D for 3D Printed Cars
Divergent 3D has created a software-hardware platform enabled by 3D metal printing (the Divergent Manufacturing Platform™) that radically transforms the economics and environmental impact of designing and manufacturing complex structures such as cars. PSA Group (Citroën and Peugeot, France) is partnering with Divergent 3D to implement Divergent’s technology in its manufacturing processes with the objective of becoming a global leader in efficient automotive manufacturing.
Rize3D Announces a new easier, faster 3D Printing Machine
Rize3d sets a new standard for speed and ease of use in industrial 3D printers that can exist as safely on your desk as they do in the lab, unlocking 3D printing for new markets and driving the next wave of innovation and advancement in product design and manufacturing.
Gains mainly in post-processing
You need to produce usable parts faster than ever to stay competitive. But post-processing adds hours and cost onto the 3D printing process. The Rize One zero-post-processing 3D printer eliminates the hassles that frustrate users, keeping focus on the creativity and function that’s essential to innovation and production. Gone are the messy and toxic post-processing materials, the special hookups and space required for post-processing devices and disposal and, most importantly, the hours of expensive labor required to deal with all of it.
3D Printing Chapter in the Guinness Book of Records
On August 26, 2016, the Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory produced the world’s largest solid 3D-printed object, a “trim-and-drill” tool that Boeing uses to build the wings on its passenger aircraft. About the size of an SUV, the tool weighs 1,650 lbs and measures 17.5 feet long, 5.5 feet wide and 1.5 feet tall (5.33m x 1.68m x 0.46m ), making it the world’s largest solid object made with a 3D printer. It took 30 hours to print using carbon fiber and composite plastic materials.
