3D printed ‘Golden Antler Hair Clip’ for the Christmas Ad

Posted on Updated on

According to 3DPRINTUK, “Golden Antler Hair Clip for the House of Fraser Christmas Ad. The client required a set of copies of the antler hair clip to be replicated and finished to look like the originals. Our task was to get them 3D modeled, 3D printed and painted in just under 3 days. A fun little Express turnaround project to create a prop for the advert shoot. Fun fact – the finishing and the filming happened on the same day.”

The Formnext trade fair 2019 purmundus challenge

Posted on Updated on

According to The 2019 purmundus challenge,” which is being held from 19 to 22 November 2019 in Frankfurt in hall 12.1-E09 of the Formnext trade fair, shines a spotlight on forward-looking product ideas from 18 countries on 5 continents under the motto “Beyond 3D printing. This is the seventh time that the 3D and 4D printing award for the purmundus challenge has been presented in Frankfurt. A total of 38 finalists now stand a chance of winning the prestigious purmundus challenge trophy. The award ceremony will be broadcast live from the Formnext exhibition via the Facebook portal. In addition to the first three places, this year there will once again be a “special mention” and an “innovation prize”. A prize for the “people’s choice”, voted for over the course of the fair by visitors to Formnext 2019, completes the purmundus challenge.

International exhibition and conference on 3D printing / additive manufacturing & tooling (19-22 Nov 2019).

Jabil’s plan for $42M medical 3D printing with 24 percent core EPS growth

Posted on Updated on

According to St. Petersburg-based Jabil (NYSE: JBL),” is set to make a $42 million investment in Albuquerque, New Mexico for technology and equipment as it makes the Duke City its “center of excellence” for 3D printing, officials announced on Aug. 15. The company said it plans to hire 120 employees in the next five years.”
According to New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham said in a statement “We have all the talent in the world right here in New Mexico, and when we build the infrastructure for a 21st-century economy, we will see more young adults stay here and more homegrown talent return here.”
According to CEO Mark Mondello, “I’m extremely pleased with our third-quarter performance, highlighted by solid operational excellence and strong financial results. The team delivered 20 basis points of core margin expansion on double-digit revenue growth, culminating in an impressive 24 percent core EPS growth, year-over-year. Our strong year-to-date results validate that our diversification strategy has firmly taken hold.”

Delivering insoles in 1/2 the time, at a fraction of the cost.

Embroidery machine, with 3D, printed parts

Posted on Updated on

According to Hackaday, “Embroidery machine, with 3D, printed parts. Arduino components combined with 3D printed parts. OpenBuilds® V-Slot Belt & Pinion System.Such as an Arduino and stepper drivers for an economical DIY solution. It’s not shown in the photo here, but we particularly like the 3D printed sockets that are screwed into the tabletop. These hold the sewing machine’s “feet”, and allow it to be treated like a modular component that can easily be removed and used normally when needed.”

3D Printing News Alert(For 3D printing a wonder material for the future, graphene)

Posted on Updated on

Graphene is strong, light, thin and flexible. It is the thinnest substance capable of conducting electricity, is an efficient thermal conductor and is optically transparent. Graphene is also more resistant to tearing than steel and is almost impermeable.

For 3D printing a wonder material for the future, graphene.

According to GrapheneCa Head of Business Development David Robles,” Proactive Investors to discuss the technology company that is integrating graphene into the real world using their own environmentally friendly production process.

Robles telling Proactive about the company’s revenue streams and when they are expecting to be profitable.”

According to Hodge,” Adding graphene to plastic composites can improve the tensile strength and stiffness of packaging. Graphene won’t make the material indestructible but it may be possible to reduce packaging size while maintaining the same properties. This has obvious advantages for transporting fragile goods and may also contribute to recycling. Today, recycling plastics degrades the quality of the plastic – it can be recycled an average of three times, but adding graphene to recycled plastics can improve its strength so that it can be recycled many times more. Because they are printed, [the capacitive touch sensors] can be any size or shape and printed in volume.”

According to Chris Jones, technical manager at Novalia, a partner in the EU’s Graphene Flagship, “Our mission statement is to make technology disappear into everyday items.
The ink is supplied by Researchers at the University of Cambridge, University of Manchester and produced by micro fluidization.”

According to Francesca Rosella, co-founder of CuteCircuit, “A dress was designed to illustrate the material’s strength, transparency, and conductivity. The shape and decoration of the dress represent the design of a graphene crystal. We examined graphene under a microscope to see the hexagonal structure and enlarged it to help people understand graphene’s molecular structure.”

According to the TechRadar, “Mobile warming the graphene jacket can also conduct electricity, but creator Vollebak has decided to dampen down this ability to protect wearers. Prototypes of the jacket were so conductive that the wearer could hold a battery in one hand and a light bulb in the other, and have the bulb light up, but Vollebak decided that, although interesting, it was best to play it safe and make the material a little more resistant.”

According to Researchers at Osaka Universities co-author Kazuhiko Matsumoto,” Our biosensor enables highly sensitive and quantitative detection of bacteria that cause stomach ulcers and stomach cancer by limiting its reaction in a well-defined microvolume. They have invented a new biosensor using graphene, which is a material that consists of a one-atom-thick layer of carbon, to detect bacteria like those that attack the stomach lining and that have been linked to stomach cancer. When the bacteria interact with the biosensor, chemical reactions are triggered which are detected by graphene. To enable detection of the chemical reaction products, the researchers used microfluidics to contain the bacteria in tiny droplets that are close to the surface of the sensor.”

UCLA professor uses 3D printing for fashion designs

Posted on Updated on

According to ucla.edu/news,” UCLA faculty member Julia Koerner, whose 3D printed designs were featured in the movie Black Panther, which was recently recognized with a 2019 Academy Award for Best Costume Design.

Koerner, a Los Angeles-based Austrian architect and the founder of JK Design GmbH. She has won many awards for her work, which is at the convergence of architecture, product, and fashion design – specializing in additive manufacturing and robotic technology. In 2015, Julia launched an entirely 3D-Printed ready-to-wear collection entitled ‘Sporophyte’. Her collaborations involved 3D-Printed fashion pieces developed with Haute Couture Houses for Paris Fashion week and 3D printed costumes for Hollywood entertainment productions such as Marvel’s Black Panther in collaboration with Ruth Carter. Most recently she collaborated with Swarovski on a showpiece which displays Swarovski’s continued strive for innovation and the early developments of 3D-printing technology with glass”.
