3D printing metals market to hit $12B in 2028

Today's metal 3D printing has established itself as an attractive manufacturing solution for prototyping and beyond. Metal printer manufacturers and materials suppliers are poised to capitalise on this so far unmet demand, with the 3D printing metals market to be worth $12B in 2028. This rapid growth is analysed and implications evaluated in the latest market intelligence report from IDTechEx Research, 3D Printing Metals 2018-2028: Technology and Market Analysis.

Controlling drones with the wave of a hand

Controlling drones with the wave of a hand
Researchers at the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa) have developed a new device that lets you control a drone with simple hand gestures. Designed to be easy and intuitive, the new Empa innovation works through 3D printing and original sensor technology: a wave to the left, and the drove moves to the left; a wave to the right, the drone moves to the right.

3D printing software enables evaluation of macroscopic designs

3D printing software enables evaluation of macroscopic designs
The precise control of printed objects’ microstructure gives designers commensurate control of the objects’ physical properties — such as their density or strength, or the way they deform when subjected to stresses. Today’s 3D printers have a resolution of 600 dots per inch, which means that they could pack a billion tiny cubes of different materials into a volume that measures just 1.67 cubic inches.

Price of 3D printed plastic being driven down

Price of 3D printed plastic being driven down
The base price of the iglidur i3 PL Selective Laser Sintering (SLS) material from igus has been reduced by 30%, with a corresponding decrease in printed part price. Since its introduction a year ago, there has been a general rise in volume of the material due to overall demand.

Hybrid nanoparticles enable 3D printing in water

Hybrid nanoparticles enable 3D printing in water
Researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem's Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology have developed a new type of photoinitiator for 3D printing in water. These novel nanoparticles could allow for the creation of bio-friendly 3D printed structures, further the development of biomedical accessories and drive progress in traditional industries such as plastics.

3D printed organs have some way to go

3D printed organs have some way to go
A recent report from IDTechEx Research states that regenerative medicine will be the biggest growth market for 3D bioprinting. However, while using the technology for the replacement of damaged and failing organs is far more advanced than being purely a fantasy based in the realms of science fiction, the report suggest there are some hurdles to making the technology a significant player in the market, and it may be some years before it can realise its potential.

Jet fusion printer enhances MTC's 3D printing capability

Jet fusion printer enhances MTC's 3D printing capability
After it became the first centre in the country to install HP’s latest 3D printer, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) will continue to drive the additive manufacturing revolution in the United Kingdom. The Coventry-based centre has added the new HP Jet Fusion 4200 to its extensive additive manufacturing armoury, which has been supplied by Europac 3D.

3D printing could save toy manufacturing

3D printing could save toy manufacturing
Cheap, plastic toys - no manufacturer necessary. The 2020 toy and game market is projected to be $135 billion, and 3D printing brings those profits home. People have scoffed that 3D printers are simply toys themselves. But they probably didn't realise how much money is made off playthings. Do-it-yourself (DIY) manufacturing - making goods at home with a 3D printer using open source designs from a free online repository - has a multimillionDollar impact on the overall toy industry.
