Metal 3D printing set to transform jewellery & watch making

Metal 3D printing set to transform jewellery & watch making
The jewellery and watchmaking industry is set to enter a new era as students from Birmingham City University gear up to begin training on how to use a new world-pioneering technology. The Direct Metal 3D Printing technology, from Cooksongold, will free designers from the constraints of conventional manufacturing technologies, meaning that once ‘impossible’ complex and costly designs will now become a reality for jewellery and watchmakers.

3D printed car could be available before the end of 2015

Once upon a time, the simple glass of the car windshield began to incorporate printed antennas and heaters. Fast forward to 2015, and the world's first car with a 3D printed load-bearing structure and body is the Strati, developed by US startup Local Motors. In 2014, the company undertook a challenge to build a 3D car live on the internet. In late 2015, the first street legal versions are expected to be delivered to customers.

Topological optimisation benefits of additive manufacturing

Topological optimisation benefits of additive manufacturing
From the Greek 'topo' meaning 'place' and 'ology' meaning 'study', topological optimisation is the study of mathematically optimising material layout. When approaching a component part in this way, the end goal is to remove superfluous material in areas of low stress whilst maintaining structural integrity of the whole; the lighter and stronger the better.
