World’s first medium/large-scale 3D thermoset printer installed at ORNL in partnership with Magnum Venus Products.
According to the Bob Vanderhoff, CEO Magnum Venus Products and Moe Khaleel, ORNL Associate Laboratory Director for Energy and Environmental Sciences,“ Thanks to this innovation, research and development managers will be able to prototype faster and bring products to market faster.
Procurement departments will also enjoy shortened lead time on crucial molds – allowing for rapid deployment. This was made possible through ORNL slicing software that allows the integration of multivariate print process parameters.
We’re pleased to collaborate with MVP on this state-of-the-art printer and look forward to seeing the technology continue to progress and positively impact the additive manufacturing industry.
This collaboration is important for accelerating the pace with which new technologies can be successfully commercialized, leading to a larger range of applications and performance criteria for additively manufactured components, while creating new jobs and increased prosperity in our region.”
3D Printed Mascara Wand.
According to the Chanel 3D- printed mascara brush, Le Volume Revolution,”The micro-cavities printed in the brush allow the mascara formula to absorb, delivering exactly the right amount to lashes allowing it to be built up to increase lash volume without having to re-dip the brush back into the mascara tube between each application.
The “granular texture” of the brush, it helps the mascara stay put, adhering to each lash more easily. Each bristle has been printed and arranged in millimetre-scale so that it creates volume”.:)
How to 3D print copy any object. According to Switch & Lever,” Copying physical items is not as easy as copying a piece of paper, you can’t exactly stick it into a copy machine. However, surprisingly technology for how to copy physical objects have come a long way in recent years, and have also become available for those without deep pockets. In this video we’re copying a couple of different objects, using different methods, with different rates of success.”:)
According to the comments,”PETG for strength and durability, polyethylene terephthalate (think plastic bottles) and the G means it’s been glycol modified for extra durability. PLA for speed and a little extra quality. It’s good stuff. PEI is an ideal print surface for PETG it adheres well but doesn’t fuse like it does to glass. The advantage of PETG is minimal warping, so you don’t need a heated chamber and virtually no smell with PETG”.:)
