Additive Works Introduces New Amphyon Module for 3D Printing Support Generation

Additive Works Introduces New Amphyon Module for 3D Printing Support Generation

Many people’s least favorite part of 3D printing, no matter which technology, is dealing with support structures. They’re frequently difficult to remove, and if they’re not placed correctly, they can render the entire part useless. In metal 3D printing, they’re especially tricky. If they’re not strong enough or designed to sufficiently withstand heat conduction, they […]

NASA Researchers Use 3D Modeling Software to Run Asteroid Impact Scenarios, Give First Responders a Way to Identify and Defend Against Asteroid Strikes

If you were at all conscious in the year 1998, then you remember the major end-of-the-world asteroid movie that came out that year, Armageddon; not to be confused with the major end-of-the-world comet movie Deep Impact, which inexplicably came out the exact same year and introduced us all to the terrifying acronym E.L.E. (Extinction Level Event). Of […]
