The ESA Explores 3D Printing on Earth and Beyond

Sometimes when a new technology leaves the laboratory, it goes off to perform its functions in an industrial setting, research facility, or educational institute. Sometimes, though, its installation may be quite literally out of this world — and that’s just what the European Space Agency (ESA) sees as the future of 3D printing. During this […]

Why Would We Think About 3D Printing Pharmaceuticals?

Why Would We Think About 3D Printing Pharmaceuticals?

A few months ago coming home from a conference, the cardiac physician queued alongside me to board the flight back to the US was skeptical about the merits of 3D printing pills. Why, he asked, would anyone do that, what benefits could it offer? Answering his own questions, he reasoned that decentralized production may be […]

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Financing as a Barrier to Entry in 3D Printing

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Financing as a Barrier to Entry in 3D Printing

One of the major advantages of 3D printing often touted in marketing literature is its cost-cutting capability as compared to traditional manufacturing techniques. As material is built up in additive manufacturing, rather than cut away through subtractive techniques, materials savings can be substantial as only the necessary amount is processed for a given component. Especially […]

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Skills Shortage in 3D Printing Leaves Many Wondering How to Educate, Upskill, Fill Jobs

Adopting Additive Manufacturing: Skills Shortage in 3D Printing Leaves Many Wondering How to Educate, Upskill, Fill Jobs

Driving a successful industry is a successful workforce; that workforce, though, has to come from somewhere. In terms of additive manufacturing, lately we’ve been seeing an increasing call toward the importance of education, skills, and training as the industry advances beyond its infancy. This call was loud and clear last week in Nottingham, as the […]

A Closer Look at Sonova's 3D Printed Titanium Hearing Aids

A Closer Look at Sonova's 3D Printed Titanium Hearing Aids

Most industries have been touched by 3D printing in one way or another, but few have been affected as much as the hearing aid manufacturing industry. The entire industry turned to 3D printing several years ago after global company Phonak began using the technology in the production of its hearing aids. Phonak, owned by Sonova, had […]
