Interview With Valuechain on ERP and MRP for Additive Manufacturing

3D printing is still for many companies something that is divorced from regular business processes. Somewhere in a ventilated room a few printers hum and prototypes are taken out of them every once in a while. Meanwhile, in businesses that use 3D printing for manufacturing, 3D printing software controls, logs and verifies builds is being […]

Metal 3D Printing’s Goldilocks’ Choice

Metal 3D Printing’s Goldilocks’ Choice

  Metal 3D printing is all the rage at the moment. With machines costing upwards of $100,000 and usually a lot closer to a million there are a lot of different technologies and application areas. On the one hand, we see the inkjet people go for in office production of lower cost parts while DMLS […]

Will GEFERTEC’s 3DMP Metal 3D Printing Process Make 3D Printing Large Metal Structures Affordable?

Will GEFERTEC’s 3DMP Metal 3D Printing Process Make 3D Printing Large Metal Structures Affordable?

German company GEFERTEC’s 3DMP process is a very interesting metal 3D printing technology. We profiled the company and its wire fed 3D printing technology a few months ago. Rather than focus on inexpensive parts (inkjet) or fine mechanical small parts (DMLS, SLM) their wire arc based technology is focused on large 3D printed metal parts. How […]

NanoE Technical Ceramics for Desktop 3D Printing: Interview with CEO Guillaume de Calan

Ceramics is a relatively new area for 3D printing. Some companies have been active in the space and we have products such as Olivier van Herpt’s ceramics 3D printer. These large-scale ceramics are but one part of the ceramics market, however. Technical ceramics are usually sintered ceramic components used widely in technical applications for industry. […]

Interview with Fabian Alefeld of Additive Minds, 3D Printing Training, Consulting and Application Development

One of the things holding 3D printing back is the lack of Application Development Consultants. Imagine the dawn of the asphalt age, bitumen production increases as maps are filled with squiggly lines where fields once stood. Cars roll off of vastly expanded production lines while workers who built them on cue, queue in lines for […]

Interview with Martin Bondéus of Bondtech

If we look at a FDM (FFF, Material Extrusion) 3D printer the three key components are the feeder, extruder and nozzle of the 3D printer. These components determine the rate and pressure at which the material is deposited as well as (together with fans) how quickly this material solidifies. There are hundreds of 3D printer […]

The main thing that attracted me to 3D printing initially was this technology’s promise to let anyone make anything. On top of that once we’re bored with it we could then recycle it and make new things. With 3D printing, we could in a sustainable way have our cake and eat it too. We could […]

Interview: Brook Drumm is Back. The Demise of Printrbot and Brook’s Next Steps

I loved Printrbot. The company made value engineered, tough, hackable, well designed and well made 3D printers. Where everyone else was just a clone army, Printrbot made inexpensive 3D printers that worked. It was a company with a lot of integrity and honesty. Printrbot was also one of the most successful 3D printing companies ever […]

Interview with  Xioneer CEO Andrei Neboian at the TCT Show

Interview with Xioneer CEO Andrei Neboian at the TCT Show

Xioneer impressed me with its multiple material bays that let one pre-dry filament inside the printer. In this way, one could condition the filament on the machine itself and prepare it for 3D printing. With hygroscopic filaments such as PLA performance is significantly retarded and the material becomes brittle making it difficult to print. Polyamide […]

Minifactory Releases the Minifactory Ultra High Temperature 3D Printer for PEEK and PEI at the TCT Show

Fins have this concept called Sisu. Sisu is a kind of hail mary pass, fatalistic almost, belief in one’s own toughness, resilience and survivability in the face of adversity. It’s kind of a gritty gumption with a side of never give up. Its this inner strength that shines through in what Minifactory does. Minifactory is a small […]
