3D Printing News Briefs: May 7, 2020

We’ve got a new 3D printer, a line of 3D printing resins, and an online series in today’s 3D Printing News Briefs. MINGDA is introducing a new industrial 3D printer, and a machine manufacturer is selling resin materials for SLA and DLP 3D printing. Finally, 3D Hubs has launched an online engineering summit series.

MINGDA’s Industrial MD-6H 3D Printer

Chinese FDM 3D printer manufacturer Shenzhen MINGDA Technology CO., Ltd makes desktop, DIY, and industrial 3D printers that have passed important certifications, while the company itself has passed ISO 9001. The company recently introduced its new MD-6H 3D printer, a large 400 x 300 x 500 mm industrial system with an inner T structure – this ensures rigidity in vertical and horizontal directions, makes the model more stable, and reduces the weight.

The MD-6H achieves uniform filament feeding through a double-gear feeding structure that doesn’t slip, and it can print with a variety of filaments, including ABS, PLA, TPU, and carbon fiber filled filaments. The fully enclosed 3D printer also features a 5″ color touchscreen, heated aluminum bed, and UPS (Uninterruptible Power System).

OpenDWS Selling SLA and DLP 3D Printing Materials

It seems like every day there’s another new 3D printing material on the market, but the OpenDWS line of resins is different because it’s being sold by a machine manufacturer. The materials, developed and produced in Italy by DWS Systems, can be used by 3D printers made by any manufacturer of SLA and DLP technology.

The OpenDWS line offers four materials – durable Tough resin, high-resolution nano-filled Rigid resin, versatile and transparent Clear resin, and performance Cast resin for lost wax casting. All four materials are available to purchase on the OpenDWS page.

3D Hubs Launches Online Engineering Series

Online distributed manufacturing platform 3D Hubs has just launched its new Online Engineering Summit Series, where industry experts will discuss a wide range of disciplines in manufacturing to help professional and aspiring engineers stay engaged, upskill, and get inspired, even when they’re working remotely. The 3D Hubs Summit Series will take place every Wednesday at 17:00 (GMT) / 18:00 (CET) for six weeks, and will later be available on the 3D Hubs website.

“With a global lockdown impacting our industry, all businesses and individuals must look to the future. We understand this period can be hard on individuals and want to do what we can to help. Through our Summit Series, we hope to help engineers learn and be inspired, now and for the future,” stated Brian Garret, the Co-Founder and CPO at 3D Hubs.

Brad Templeton from Singularity University, a self-driving car developer who consulted on Google’s driverless car design team, will discuss automated transportation on May 13th, and Sam Rogers, Additive Design Lead at Gravity Industries, will speak on May 20th about pioneering aeronautical innovation, especially in designing the Jet Suit in the above image. The final presentation will be on May 27th, and Jon Bruner, Head of Enterprise Strategy at Carbon, will explain how the company is designing and fabricating unique products to break manufacturing boundaries. Presentations by executives at Additive Flow, Autodesk, and Bespoke Innovations are already available to watch, and today’s Additive Flow webinar should soon be available as well.
