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.”

The Lightyear One is 3D printed

Posted on Updated on

More than 55 interior parts for the Lightyear One are 3D printed.
According to Lex Hoefsloot, CEO of Lightyear announces and Robert Llewellyn, ” gets an exclusive first look at the Lightyear One hyper-efficient luxury sedan, a partially solar-powered electric car. And gets to experience it as one of the first passengers!

When Solar Team Eindhoven won the world solar challenge in Australia driving a 4 seater 100% solar-powered car over 3,000 kilometers, no one would have believed that a handful of years later they could come up with this.
Lightyear One. A spacious hyper-efficient partially solar-powered electric car.
We know the future is electric, could it be solar electric.”

Request a free 3D print sample part

Request a free 3D print sample part.

Please read our policies before requesting the sample:)
According to the Formlabs, “stereolithography (SLA) print process, and see how Formlabs prints compare to parts made from an extrusion-based fused deposition modeling (FDM) 3D printer:

Form 1+ is a stereolithography 3D printer. Today, we’re going to look at how it works and put it to the test against parts from an extrusion-based machine.

Let’s start by taking a closer look at the printer. When we open up the light blocking cover, we can see a build platform inside. This metal plate is where the parts are made.

Underneath the build platform is a liquid resin tank. This clear window gives the ultraviolet laser a path to cure the resin.

To start a print, we’ll upload a file, and fill up the resin tank to the indicator line. You can see the laser passing back and forth inside, hardening the liquid plastic.

Now, We’ll take our print out and wash it in rubbing alcohol to get the excess resin off. The flower comes with supports on it, and we’ll snip them off to finish the piece.

Stereolithography is known for producing extreme detail, with layers down to four times finer than a human hair.

The Form 1+ lets us take advantage of a library of materials, so we made some other parts to show what these resins can do.

A Castable Resin gives jewelers and engineers an inexpensive way to produce metal parts. This Flexible Resin is great for simulating different textures and as we can see, this Tough Resin and can really take a hit”.

The wire feed 3D printing

Posted on Updated on

According to researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory Andrzej Nycz and Voestalpine Böhler Welding, “We achieved a precise geometry for the components by using real-time feedback sensors to correct for abnormalities. Because metal printed walls represent the basic building blocks of parts manufactured with big area additive manufacturing, we expect the same stable properties to hold for parts printed with complex geometries. Not so heavy metal. A good example is wire-feed 3D printing. Mechanical postprocessing like milling and lathing is almost always necessary. Typical fields of applications are automotive, aerospace, shipbuilding, tool making as well as service and maintenance. This additive manufacturing (AM) technique is finding favor in industries like aerospace and heavy equipment, where oversized, monolithic structures are desirable.

The Additive Report has posted numerous stories on wire-feed AM systems in the past two months.
Metallic 3D Printing (M3DP) is a Wire and Arc Additive Manufacturing (WAAM) process and works with a plasma arc and welding wire. The plasma torch is moved by a CNC gantry system along an arbitrary path and creates a weld pool on a substrate plate. A material deposition is achieved by adding wire into the weld pool. The desired part can be generated by putting one deposition over the previous one”.

Air NZ uses a 3D printer for speedy

Posted on Updated on

Air NZ uses a 3D printer for speedy. According to Air New Zealand,” has teamed up with components and systems provider Moog, Microsoft and ST Engineering on a world-first experiment which has the potential to transform aerospace supply chains by leveraging 3D printing and Moog’s blockchain enabled VeriPart™ process to create a point of use, time of need a digital supply chain.

The proof of concept has seen Air New Zealand order a digital aircraft part file from Singapore-based ST Engineering. The digital file was immediately sent to an approved printer, operated by Moog in Los Angeles, downloaded and 3D printed before being installed within hours on an Air New Zealand Boeing 777-300 aircraft ahead of its scheduled departure”.

3D Printing News Alert(3D Printers for larger parts production)

Posted on Updated on

According to Max Lobovsky, CEO and co-founder of Formlabs, “The printers also feature a new process the company calls Low Force Stereolithography (LFS), an advanced form of stereolithography that “delivers consistently flawless parts by adapting to your part’s geometry to deliver the perfect balance of detail and speed. We entered the industry seven years ago with the first powerful, affordable desktop SLA 3D printer, and since then have shipped more than 40,000 printers, and our customers have printed more than 40 million parts. Now users are leading the way in how to grow 3D printing from one machine to many, from prototyping tool to game changer. We’re excited to take another huge leap forward with LFS 3D printing.”

3D Printers Eyes

Posted on Updated on

3D Printers Eyes. ‘Machine Learning’ will give 3D Printers eyes.
According to Randy Rausch, a senior engineer in embedded computing at GE Research, “Through the integration of edge computing, we have given the 3D printer ‘digital eyes’ to track each layer of every build. We want the manufacturer to know in real time whether a part build is good or has to be scrapped. We already have come so far working closely with GE Additive,” Rausch says. What’s allowing us to move so fast is both the digital and physical expertise we’re bringing to their technology”.
