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 […]

Generative Design Will “Underpin Autodesk Future Growth”: VP of Simulation Foresees a New Manufacturing Paradigm, Starting with 3D Printing

Generative Design Will “Underpin Autodesk Future Growth”: VP of Simulation Foresees a New Manufacturing Paradigm, Starting with 3D Printing

A few short years ago, I would likely have laughed had someone posed the question, “What would happen if a car participated in its own redesign?” At RAPID + TCT last month, though, that question was greeted instead with a room full of thoughtful pondering when Mickey McManus, Chairman and Principal at MAYA Design and Research […]

From Concept to Production: Simulation Helps Additive Manufacturing Get Real

From Concept to Production: Simulation Helps Additive Manufacturing Get Real

Dassault Systèmes is in the very real business of simulation, as technology helps production get real. Midway between conceptualization and realization, simulation is increasingly coming into play as a means to make production processes more efficient — a trend notably rising in additive manufacturing. 3D printing makes possible more geometries than ever before, but that doesn’t mean […]

Materialise and Atos Use Metal 3D Printing to Create Next-Generation Spacecraft Component

Of all the fields that have been impacted by the rise of 3D printing technology, none has been revolutionized quite like the aerospace industry. Industrial-grade additive manufacturing has enabled a number of space companies to create complex components that were impossible with traditional techniques, and has also helped reduce costs and turnaround times. From SpaceX […]
