SPEE3D is Here to Compete with Casting, 3D Printing Metal at Thrice the Speed of Sound

SPEE3D is Here to Compete with Casting, 3D Printing Metal at Thrice the Speed of Sound

Metal 3D printing systems tend to dominate headlines, especially as more players come into the game (and still more announce their intention to enter). The technology, as industry experts frequently underscore, is hot — at least as a topic, as today not all need...

3D Printing of Aluminum and the Potential Tariffs

3D Printing of Aluminum and the Potential Tariffs

As a result of the February 2018 U.S. Department of Finance findings, in a Section 232 investigation into U.S. aluminum and steel imports pricing the path is clear for the Trump administration to impose tariffs on aluminum imports. These developments follow new tariffs in imported solar panels. Please see our article, U.S. Solar Cell 3D Printer Usage. Similarly, […]

High-Performance Aluminum Alloy for Additive Manufacturing in Focus for Renishaw and Aeromet

High-Performance Aluminum Alloy for Additive Manufacturing in Focus for Renishaw and Aeromet

Materials are increasingly in focus in additive manufacturing, with particular attention being paid to metals. As the industry well understands by now, moving a material from a traditional to an additive manufacturing process is not so simple as dropping the same type of metal powder into a different machine. Material properties must be well understood […]

Olaf Diegel Goes Heavy Metal with Nylon 3D Printed Skeletor Microphone

Olaf Diegel Goes Heavy Metal with Nylon 3D Printed Skeletor Microphone

“Multitalented” is a good word to describe Olaf Diegel, but it may be a bit of an understatement. The design engineer works as a professor of product development at Sweden’s Lund University and an Associate Consultant with Wohlers Associates, as a principal author of the industry-known Wohlers Report and teaching new design for additive manufacturing courses, and still […]

The Incredible Shrinking Antenna: 3D Printing Reduces 100 Components to 1

The Incredible Shrinking Antenna: 3D Printing Reduces 100 Components to 1

One thing that 3D printing is particularly good at doing is making things smaller. I’m not just talking about high-resolution 3D printers capable of 3D printing on the nanoscale, although those have certainly done some remarkable things. I’m also referring to the technology’s ability to take large, complex assemblies and reduce them, in some cases, […]

Australian Researchers Explore the Superconductive Properties of 3D Printed Parts

Australian Researchers Explore the Superconductive Properties of 3D Printed Parts

One year ago, we covered the scientifically progressive plans of University of British Columbia quantum materials researcher Jennifer Hoffman, who has been optimistically working towards quantum 3D printing, which would essentially enable the 3D printing of objects on the atomic scale. At the time, one of Hoffman’s primary goals over the next five years was realizing topological […]

Shapeways & Montague Bikes Team Up to Make Aluminum 3D Printed Folding Bicycles

Shapeways & Montague Bikes Team Up to Make Aluminum 3D Printed Folding Bicycles

We’ve written about numerous 3D printed bikes over time, from racing models to those made with very unusual materials and even some made in miniature. If you know any serious cyclists, you are probably well aware that they are a bit of a different—and passionate—breed, and they often like to fix, tinker, sometimes even re-engineer their […]

Amsterdam Woodworker Reinvents the Bike with 3D Printing & Solid Ash Wood

Oh, the joys of cycling — and of collecting bikes. If you know a bicycle enthusiast (or are one), you are probably aware they rarely just have one, and if said person lives in a city they usually have several bikes meant for every cycling scenario imaginable piled up in their living room, kitchen, or bedroom […]
