3D Printed Replacement Gear Lasts Welder Seven Months

3D Printed Replacement Gear Lasts Welder Seven Months

It’s been widely agreed upon since the early 1980s that the direct value of 3D printing is found in rapid prototyping. 3D printing prototypes helps companies speed up product development cycles by taking advantage of inexpensive, fast, and often complex design iterations. In an increasingly competitive free market, companies are discovering new ways to use […]

Metal 3D Printing Keeps Cyrano the Cat Landing on All Four Feet

Metal 3D Printing Keeps Cyrano the Cat Landing on All Four Feet

Direct metal laser sintering (DMLS) is an industrial 3D printing process, increasingly put to use in applications such as the manufacture of car parts. But EOS recently used its DMLS technology to manufacture parts for something much smaller than a car – a handsome cat from Virginia, named Mr. Cyrano L. Catte II. After being cured […]
