What does a major German car manufacturer, surgeon from Brazil, producer of food-making equipment, and large toy maker have in common? All are interested in methods of design for additive manufacturing (DfAM). Twenty-five people from five continents came together last week to explore, discuss, and learn how to design products for AM. Also represented were […]

Olaf Diegel's Desktop Distillery Proves Metal 3D Printing is More Fun without Post-Processing

Olaf Diegel's Desktop Distillery Proves Metal 3D Printing is More Fun without Post-Processing

Post-processing. No one wants to talk about it, but everyone working with metal additive manufacturing has to do it. …Right? While Rize is working to remove the pain of post-processing from plastic 3D printing processes, and Desktop Metal has been making headway with easily removable supports on the metals side, as of today there’s no […]

Check Out "Heavy Metal," the First Guitar 3D Printed in Aluminum

Check Out "Heavy Metal," the First Guitar 3D Printed in Aluminum

Aluminum is the most commonly found metal on Earth, and after oxygen and silicon, it is the third most commonly found element. Because of its low density, resistance to corrosion and its ability to easily be combined with other metal materials, aluminum is also one of the most important industrial metals around, and is invaluable […]

Taiwan's ITRI Showcases Metal 3D Printed Saxophone

Guitars. Violins — both acoustic and electric. Cellos. Drum sets and Indian tabla drum pairs. The saxophone… 3D printing musical instruments is becoming more common, but it is not necessarily an easy process to get the sound right. The most recent 3D printed instrument to hit the news comes from Taiwan’s Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI),which has successfully completed the printing of perhaps […]

Penny Farthing Bikes, 3D Printing & the Bowler Hat Helmet

When Frenchman Eugène Meyer invented the high wheel (or penny farthing) bicycle back in 1869, little did he know that, aside from providing a chance to show off, his creation would pose a dangerous risk of headers and face plants to riders around the world. Attempts to swap out the large and small wheels front […]
