Interview With Greg Haye of Local Motors About Co-Creation and 3D Printing

Interview With Greg Haye of Local Motors About Co-Creation and 3D Printing

Local Motors burst onto the scene in 2007 using crowdsourcing and cooperative design to develop cars. Their visionary and bold approach lead them to become a nexus for designers, engineers, and gearheads who wish to work together on making vehicles. The Local Motors team has made the Strati, Olli, and Swim, which all use 3D […]

Thermwood and Boeing Make Large 3.6 Meter 3D Printed 777X Program Tooling Part

Thermwood and Boeing Make Large 3.6 Meter 3D Printed 777X Program Tooling Part

Thermwood and Boeing have announced that they’ve made a large 3D printed composite part for Boeing’s 777X program. The Thermwood’s LSAM technology was used to make a 20% carbon fiber reinforced ABS part. The part is a “12-foot-long R&D tool.” This demonstrates the possible applications of polymer 3D printing for large parts for aerospace, albeit in […]

Collaboration and 3D Printing Streamline Boat Production

Collaboration and 3D Printing Streamline Boat Production

Even though large scale additive manufacturing is becoming more common, it’s still no less impressive to see what it can produce. Massive objects can be 3D printed in very few or even in one piece, and when you add CNC machining into the equation, you get an even more streamlined manufacturing process. That’s what Thermwood […]

Thermwood Corporation Demonstrates Effectiveness of LSAM with 3D Printed Carbon Fiber Parts

Thermwood Corporation Demonstrates Effectiveness of LSAM with 3D Printed Carbon Fiber Parts

Thermwood Corporation has been busy lately. Last year, the Indiana company introduced LSAM, or Large Scale Additive Manufacturing, a combination 3D printer and CNC router system designed for producing large parts. The LSAM system is a double gantry machine that 3D prints parts to near net shape and then trims them using the CNC gantry; it’s a technology […]

Thermwood Adds New Features to LSAM Print3D Additive Manufacturing Software

Thermwood Adds New Features to LSAM Print3D Additive Manufacturing Software

While Thermwood, based in southern Indiana, continues to create 3D printed and additive manufacturing innovations for their own use, they also make progress for the rest of the industrial world. They have filled us in on their many innovations along the way from combining additive and subtractive manufacturing to their introduction of Large Scale Additive Manufacturing […]

Thermwood Introduces New Universal Print Head for LSAM 3D Printer

Thermwood Introduces New Universal Print Head for LSAM 3D Printer

3D printing, particularly FDM 3D printing, involves a lot of heat. Heated print head, heated build chamber, heated build platform – it’s all necessary to melt plastic filament and ensure that it stays soft enough to adhere to the build plate and to each subsequent layer before hardening. But Thermwood Corporation, which introduced the Large […]

Thermwood Corporation Introduces LSAM: Large Scale Additive Manufacturing with a CNC Twist

Indiana-based Thermwood Corporation is known for their CNC routers – in fact, they’re the oldest CNC machine manufacturing company in business, having developed the first commercial CNC tool control back in the 1970s. That doesn’t mean, however, that they’re snobby about subtractive manufacturing. Last year, Thermwood began exploring the additive manufacturing realm with their double gantry […]
