Renishaw and Infosys Team Up to Lower the Additive Manufacturing Entry Barrier

Renishaw and Infosys Team Up to Lower the Additive Manufacturing Entry Barrier

It can be intimidating for manufacturers to adopt new technologies, and even more intimidating to implement them at a large scale. Part of the reason that additive manufacturing hasn’t become more widespread is that entry barrier; many companies just aren’t sure how to begin incorporating the technology, much less use it for large-volume production. Many […]

RESA Wearables Brings Custom 3D Printed Insoles to Kiosks Around China

Insoles aren’t expensive, and they can be purchased at most shoe stores and pharmacies to help with foot pain and discomfort. Depending on their quality, off-the-shelf insoles do provide some degree of comfort, but they don’t fully address many issues, leaving wearers vulnerable to further problems in the future. That’s why custom 3D printed insoles […]
