In the opinion of Tyler Koslow, 3D Printing Industry,” With over two decades of quality data, the Wohlers Associates team has become the gold standard for computing growth, analyzing trends, and forecasting the future of additive manufacturing. Terry Wohlers, President of Wohlers Associates and author of the authoritative Wohlers Report on 3D printing, joins the podcast to talk about 3D printing at scale, the importance of design for additive, the emergence of metal 3D printing, and the inflection points he’s watching for.”

According to AMUG,” with industrial additive manufacturing/3D printing technologies and materials used for professional purposes from companies such as Stratasys, DSM, SLM Solutions, EOS, GE Additive, ExOne, BASF, Renishaw, Carbon, HP Inc., Additive Industries, Formlabs, and 3D Systems. AMUG meets annually to provide education and training through technical presentations on processes and new technologies. Uses and applications of additive manufacturing technologies.”
According to DI Labs, “proud to announce the acquisition of 3D printing startup, Advocate 3D, a full-service prototyping service bureau located southwest of the Minneapolis metro. The move allows DI Labs to grow its technology portfolio and expand its client base throughout the Midwest.DI Labs created a patent-pending, customized print head solution that provided a competitive edge by doubling 3d printer speeds.”
As stated by Brian Douglass, DI Labs Co-founder, “Color 3D printing has been around for a while, but this technology is on a completely new level. We can now go directly from design to a fully functional, dimensionally accurate full-color prototype that’s strong enough for field tests, tradeshows or end use. It absolutely changes what’s possible in terms of aesthetics, design, timeline, manufacturing – everything!”
In the opinion of Lead author and Ph.D. candidate from RMIT University’s School of Engineering, Carmelo Todaro, “the promising results could inspire new forms of additive manufacturing.
If you look at the microscopic structure of 3-D printed alloys, they’re often made up of large and elongated crystals.
This can make them less acceptable for engineering applications due to their lower mechanical performance and increased tendency to crack during printing.
But the microscopic structure of the alloys we applied ultrasound to during printing looked markedly different: the alloy crystals were very fine and fully equiaxed, meaning they had formed equally in all directions throughout the entire printed metal part.”
