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 high heat. Metals are an undeniable focus and growth factor in […]

3D Printed Occluder Device Can Lower Risk of Stroke-Causing Blood Clots for Patients with Atrial Fibrillation

3D Printed Occluder Device Can Lower Risk of Stroke-Causing Blood Clots for Patients with Atrial Fibrillation

According to a recent paper by Kevin R. King, with the UC San Diego Department of Medicine and Bioengineering, atrial fibrillation, or AF, is the most common arrhythmia in the human heart. When this occurs, disorganized cardiac contractions allow blood clots to form in a region of the heart called the left atrial appendage, or LAA […]

Investment Casting and 3D Printing: BFFs

Investment Casting and 3D Printing: BFFs

Investment casting has been used for millennia. In this process a wax pattern is made. This is hardened, then the wax is vaporized. The resulting mold is then hardened once again and surrounded by sand. The ceramic shell that emerges from this process is then filled with molten metal before being broken away. Investment casting […]
