3D-Hybrid Introduces New Tools to Give CNC Machines Advanced 3D Printing Capabilities

As 3D printing technology advances and matures, it’s exciting to watch as its capabilities grow and expand into numerous industries. It’s also becoming clear, however, that as advanced as 3D printing gets, it’s not going to replace other technologies like CNC machining. And that’s a good thing. Think of it like a balanced diet – […]

Collaborative Project Uses WAAM to 3D Print Stiffeners Directly on Airplane Fuselage Panels

Collaborative Project Uses WAAM to 3D Print Stiffeners Directly on Airplane Fuselage Panels

Additive manufacturing is becoming widely used in the aerospace sector. The use to which the technology is being put to use in the manufacture of airplanes is becoming more diverse, from interior cabin elements to actual structural components. It will likely still be some time before we see an entirely 3D printed airplane that flies […]

After Successful Testing and Verification, 3D Printed WAAMpeller is Introduced to the Public

After Successful Testing and Verification, 3D Printed WAAMpeller is Introduced to the Public

After over half a year of hard work, the 3D printed WAAMpeller – the first-ever ship’s propeller to be class-approved – has finally been verified and unveiled to the public at the Netherlands headquarters of Damen Shipyards Group. The project was announced back in April, when Netherlands-based RAMLAB, an additive manufacturing lab built for the maritime […]

Amsterdam: Redesign and Machine Learning Will See MX3D Complete 3D Printed Bridge Next Year

Amsterdam: Redesign and Machine Learning Will See MX3D Complete 3D Printed Bridge Next Year

MX3D is famous for a unique 3D printing process that not only extrudes filament straight into thin air but is industrial strength too. With no need for support structures and the ability to 3D print with metal, MX3D developed Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing, or WAAM. And while the uses for 3D printing and the […]

3D Printing Complete on History-Making WAAMpeller Prototype

3D printing is still a new enough technology, and such a rapidly growing one, that it’s quite frequent to see new things being 3D printed for the first time. A lot of those firsts are coming as metal 3D printing advances, and this spring, the first-ever class-approved metal 3D printed maritime component was announced. The […]

Meet the WAAMpeller, the World’s First Class-Approved Metal 3D Printed Maritime Component

Last month, we learned about a project taken on by Autodesk in partnership with RAMLAB, the Port of Rotterdam’s new additive manufacturing lab. The two created a 3D printed prototype of a ship’s propeller, and now the project has expanded to include several other partners including Promarin, Bureau Veritas and Damen Shipyards Group. The propeller will […]

Cranfield University May Have Just Created the Biggest Metal 3D Printed Part Ever

Cranfield University May Have Just Created the Biggest Metal 3D Printed Part Ever

One of the things that excites people the most about metal additive manufacturing is its capability to produce big parts – really big parts. The technology has allowed users in every area of manufacturing to create large, complex parts in one piece, cutting costs and saving material and time by eliminating the need to separately […]

Dutch Students Create a Unique 3D Printed Metal Bicycle with Help from MX3D

It looks like something Spiderman might have built – a bike made of strong, silvery webbing somehow holding together tires, seat, and handlebars. In actuality it was created by a group of Dutch college students – not superhuman, perhaps, but ingenious all the same. Harry Anderson, Stef de Groot, Ainoa Areso Rossi, Sjoerd van de […]
