New 3D printers deliver increased throughput part quality

New 3D printers deliver increased throughput part quality
3D Systems has launched the new DMP Flex 100 and DMP Dental 100 3D printers, introducing superior quality, versatility and throughput for entry-level metal 3D printing and dental applications. Designed to be used flexibly for R&D, application development and production, the DMP Flex 100 provides up to twice the throughput compared to 3D Systems’ previous entry-level metal 3D printer, the ProX DMP 100.

Adding more colours and materials into your 3D printing

Adding more colours and materials into your 3D printing
If you look back, 3D printing has come a long way since 1980 when its first patent was filed by Dr Hideo Kodama of the Nagoya Municipal Industrial Research Institute. At a time when many were still marvelling at owning paper printers, Dr Kodama described a photopolymer rapid prototyping system that would involve exposing UV light to a vat of photopolymer material, hardening it into plastic.

Turning imaging datasets into physical objects

Turning imaging datasets into physical objects
The world is awash in digital images, from photographs to x-rays to computer models to 3D scans. The advent of 3D printing has made it possible to take imaging data and print it into physical representations, but the process of doing so has been prohibitively time-intensive and costly.

Sensor and Cloud data interaction scans in 3D

Sensor and Cloud data interaction scans in 3D
At the Hannover Messe show last week the Pepperl+Fuchs stand allowed visitors to view their likeness as a digital image and experienced production in lot size one. Visitors were able to scan themselves in 3D and have the image printed on the front page of a trade fair magazine. With the help of a digital twin, the production process on a sheet metal bending machine was simulated and the results used live for optimisation in response to the differing properties of various raw materials.

Inexpensive 3D printer can produce self-folding materials

Inexpensive 3D printer can produce self-folding materials
Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University have used an inexpensive 3D printer to produce flat plastic items that, when heated, fold themselves into predetermined shapes, such as a rose, a boat or even a bunny. Lining Yao, assistant professor in the Human-Computer Interaction Institute and director of the Morphing Matter Lab, said these self-folding plastic objects represent a first step toward products such as flat-pack furniture that assume their final shapes with the help of a heat gun.
