Sticking parts PolyJet

3D Printing

When large pieces are printed, it is very common to make a design for parts and join them after utilization PolyJet technology to create the full model. To do this, you can use your CAD software or use the STL file handling once the CAD design is complete.

We must consider the following when gluing different parts:

  • Find a simple way to connect the parts with precision.
  • Keep dimensional properties of bonded parts as proposed in the CAD design.
    The Magics software has a simple and intuitive tool that allows cut paste parts keeping in mind these two premises.

A 3-D printer manufactures complete buildings out of solid rock

3D Printing

Impression 3D grande gigante Imagine a big 3D printer that can build complete buildings from stone powder. Sounds like science fiction right ? It’s exactly what designer Enrico Dini created with his prototype D-Shape printer. Dini is confident that your printer is capable of constructing buildings made of stone and eventually, moon dust.

Scientists create the first human “Print” vein

Printing

3d technology never ceases to amaze, but this time has stepped into another dimension. We have seen printers that print in rock, blues create aliens, armor superhero or functional parts of any kind. This time the technology has taken a step beyond the labor of scientists working with Organovo Novogen, the first printer capable of printing human veins.

Our clothes can also be printed

3D Printing

The three-dimensional printing may seem to have little in common with sustainability – at first glance, nothing – but the rapid prototyping process entails a series of amazing eco-benefits. One of the most innovative technology uses ultraviolet rays to melt layers of recyclable thermoplastic powder without any waste of the base material. Centralized production manages to reduce travel times, less work, and reduces production time to a few hours rather than weeks or months. All this while reducing costs and result in a better use of available resources.

Forensic science printed in 3D

Printing

Although we’ve seen printers ZCorp be used by forensic scientists in the series CSI – New York , the fact is that they are also used in the real world to work for the recognition of human remains.

The largest forensic laboratory in the world located in the US, these printers used for identification of human remains from the Korean and Vietnam wars. With the reconstruction of the skull from the remains found and overlapping images of unidentified soldiers, are capable of matching identifications in which you can not use traditional methods: dental records, fingerprints, DNA evidence, etc.

Imprímete yourself in 3d!

Printing

A few days ago a friend told me how they changed business in Europe, creating new opportunities that until now seemed impossible. One effect of technological change we’ve all seen is the demise of traditional photo developing shops, ravaged by digital imaging. In the wake of new technologies we find a French company Sculpteo, dedicated to 3d print any object you can submit them digitally. Seeing your website, I thought, “wow, what a pity that there is nothing like here … again!”.

3D printed flying Microbots

Printing

Flying Microbots science fiction sneaking their way into our world. For this, a robotics team at Cornell University has created some small insects flying robots using a 3D printer. Lightweight and quiet, come to stay.

The wings of these cute robo-insects are very thin and light, yet durable. Previously, the manufacturing process of these wings had spent much time and effort applying the method of trial and error. However, rapid prototyping has helped create these wings, allowing replicate the shapes and design of real or virtual insects or create any imaginable form. The best part? are made in a few minutes.
